LeapFrog Fun and Learn Phonics Bus Toy Review
I came across this Leap Frog Fun and Learn Phonics Bus when I took my child with me for an appointment and the office we were waiting in had one in the kids play area. I’m a toy blogger but this was not a toy I had seen before.
I’m pretty familiar with a lot of the Leap Frog toys but I hadn’t seen this version of the Phonics Bus before. My 18-month-old was entertained with this bus the entire time we waited and he got really upset that we didn’t get to take it with us when we left. He was so sad over leaving this LeapFrog ABC bus behind that it broke my heart and I came home and researched online where to get him one.
The LeapFrog Fun & Learn Phonics Bus is not a new toy so I bought one used on Amazon. There are new and used ones available on eBay but Amazon offers free shipping to Prime members on certain products and this LeapFrog Bus happened to be one of them.

LeapFrog: Fun and Learn Phonics Bus
The Leap Frog Fun and Learn Bus has all 26 letter buttons on the side, the colorful alphabet buttons are what drew my toddler to it in the first place. The alphabet buttons are bright, colorful and attention-grabbing to little eyes. What I love about these ABC buttons is that my child can trace them with his finger as he presses down on them. Being able to feel each shape of a letter is important for young learners.
There are 4 modes of play on this alphabet bus toy; ABC learn, ABC Quiz, Phonics Quiz and Music. In ABC Learn mode you can learn each of the different letters of the alphabet by pushing the letter buttons on the side of the bus. ABC Quiz mode asks you to find a letter on the side of the bus by giving you a letter to look for.
The Phonics Quiz mode is similar to the ABC Quiz except your child is asked to locate the letter by the phonics sound rather than the actual letter itself. Music mode plays different songs when you press the alphabet letter buttons.
One really nice feature is the the volume control on this phonics bus. You can turn it up and down or OFF if you prefer (and we all prefer the “off” button don’t we?). This LeapFrog learning bus has three different characters inside the bus that you can press for help; driving the bus is Leap and Casey and Bella and in the back seat. You can press down on them for help with different phonics and alphabet questions.
The LeapFrog Fun and Learn Phonics Bus is Fun and Educational!
What’s neat about this bus is that it serves two purposes, you can learn or you can just push the bus around on the floor for fun. I know that sometimes my boys just like to push the bus on the floor and press the red horn button while they drive it. It’s not always about learning letters and phonics; it’s just a fun bus to drive around the house too. There’s a realistic stop sign in the front of the bus; the kind the driver uses when the bus is stopped to let the kids out. It rolls around the floor easily; carpet and hard floors are no problem – it’s a durable little learning bus. You can find it on Amazon pretty cheap, also check local thrift stores if you don’t mind a used one.
In addition to this phonics bus, we also have the Fridge Phonics Bus, too!
