    I remember in the mid to late 80's Nickelodeon (I think) would play a commercial constantly.

    I think it was for some type of child learning system. I remember the bus van would open up and there would be learning materials in it. The bus kinda looked like a turtle van. Sorry to be so vague.

    Someone else has to remember this. I would love to see this commercial again.

    Sounds like,...

    The Sweet Pickles

    The children's books and the activity set were
    advertised for years, and also had a feature on
    the Capt. Kangaroo show.

    I had some of these books...and it did come in a little bus carrier along with other activity stuff like a coloring book, stickers, etc. The commercial used to air constantly during early daytime tv
    "It lies in the valley of the vision, where the slain are not slain with the sword. In the darkest shadows of light, there you'll find a door..."
