Help! It's Miss Appleday's first day of school, and she has to make sure all her first graders get on the right buses and go home with the right backpacks. Most of her students are safely on their buses, but she still has four students to send on their way. Can you help Miss Appleday remember the students' first and last names, which backpack to give each child, and which school bus will take each child home?

First names: Joaquin, Ray, Reiko, Shantel,
Last names: Diamond, Galvez, Johnson, Rivero
The buses are labelled by color: Green, Grey, Magenta, Red
Backpacks: Hello Kitty, Powerpuff Girls, Power Rangers, Scooby-Doo

1. Reiko loves her Hello Kitty backpack which was a birthday gift from her grandma. She remembers which bus color is hers because it starts with the same letter as her last name.

2. Two students have alliterative first and last names.

3. The boy who loves Power Rangers does not take the Grey Bus.

4. Ray moved over the summer and doesn't take the Red Bus anymore. He's grumpy today because he has to use his older sister's "girly" backpack (he wrecked his own yesterday playing tug-of-war with the dog).

5. Young Mr. Johnson rides the Green Bus to school.

6. The Scooby-Doo backpack was left on the Red Bus this morning. Luckily, the bus driver found it and brought it into the school.

It was a fun teaser. But, I don't really think Joaquin Johnson is alliterative.
May 21, 2007

Hee! Fair enough. I was thinking just in terms of J +J, but you make a good point. Glad you enjoyed it, anyway. It's my first one, and I appreciate the feedback.
May 21, 2007

Ooh! And if anyone can help me fix the typos, I really appreciate it.
May 21, 2007

Good one! I had to do this seemingly simple one twice, because I misread the first clue in my haste to be smart. Trickier than it first appears.
May 21, 2007

Nice and Easy one..but very well done. Great Job ..especially the alliterative clue (JJ and RR)
May 21, 2007

pretty nice but not beautiful
May 21, 2007

Great job on your first teaser! Easy, yet fun!
May 21, 2007

May 22, 2007

Good one! I actually managed to get it!

slightly confusing .. I thought it was what they did own! like on the summer he didnt catch the red bus .. what summer holidays I thought? So normally he would catch the red bus being the answer & his sisters Powder puff girl bag wasnt his so why was it the answer? sorry I read it in a totally different light! fun though well done!

fun i got confused once, but it was because i was reading the clues the wrong way.
Sep 10, 2007

that was a fun one -- different types of clues are always refreshing!
Dec 22, 2007

I kave no idea why i couldn't figure out Reiko and Ray's last names, but besides that good teaser.

Ray Rivero is alliterative but the only other option, Joaquin Johnson, is not. While they do both start with the same letter, the "Js" are pronounced totally different from each other. Other than that, nice puzzle.
