Melissa & Doug Number-Matching Math Bus
This educational school bus exposes children to the building blocks of math, giving them all the necessary tools to learn addition and subtraction. Kids can pop the pieces out of the cutous in the bus’s top and sides to create their own simple equations and work out the solutions.
Benefits of Math
The rigid structure of mathematical equations helps kids develop important logical and critical thinking skills. Math also prepares children for a slew of life skills, such as counting money, tracking time, and analyzing interest rates on dollhouse mortgages.
Helps Improve Motor Skills
To place the small numbers back into the bus, kids need to grab and rotate each piece to make sure it fits. This helps develop the muscles and tendons in their fingers to improve fine motor skills, which come in handy while tying shoes or holding a pencil.

About Melissa & Doug
More than 20 years ago, Melissa packed up a bunch of supplies and joined her boyfriend, Doug, in his parents’ garage. Within this small space, the young couple did much more than nurture their relationship: they started a toy empire that currently includes more than 2,000 products. The Melissa & Doug brand is synonymous with safe, expertly crafted toys. It specializes in classics, such as vibrantly painted wooden blocks and dump trucks, as well as playthings designed to improve every stage of a child’s development—from honing motor skills and speech to developing a first food blog. This dedication to crafting toys that foster growth while entertaining has catapulted the company into the national spotlight, where it’s collected awards and the attention of media outlets such as Parenting magazine and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
