Jay-Jay was an old double-decker bus (a bus with a downstairs and an upstairs), who was sent to the scrap yard because he was no longer used. In the scrapyard, children would play on him occasionally before the yardmaster began to scold them and say, "It's too dangerous." Jay-Jay was feeling very lonely and began to worry that he would never leave the scrapyard, and would be dismantled and used for parts for other vehicles. Then one day that all changed and he was soon taken away and ended up in the airport hangar. What could he be doing in the airport hanger? He then heard talk about children and playing. Interesting! What do you think Jay-Jay will be used for that involves children? Come find out what fun children will have with Jay-Jay.
