Bus Stop is a sequencing game for little children about counting passengers on and off a bus. You take turns picking up and taking off passengers as your bus moves around the street. It takes the classic 1964 Bus Stop game and makes it more approachable for youngsters.

You start by assembling the street from the puzzle pieces. You then take turns to roll your dice and move your bus around the board. When you land on a Plus square you spin the spinner to see how many passengers get on and move the passenger tiles to your bus. When you land on a Minus square you do the reverse. The winner is the player who gets to the end with the most passengers.

It's a simple game that's great for very young children. It also develops their adding and subtracting skills, and sparks lots of conversations about the different people you pick up and where they may be going.
