Okay, yes, this looks bad. At first glance, it's unclear whether the school bus itself prefers same-gender school bus partners or it serves as exclusive transportation for those who do, but either way, it's not your first pick for playtime fun. Digging deeper reveals, however, that the school bus toy was manufactured by a company called the Gay Toy Company who simply slapped that name on their proprietary school bus. We can't exactly fault them for choosing that name in the '60s without knowing what connotations that word would have in the future, but still, it's probably not a great choice for Junior's nursery today.
