Advantages so much fun
Disadvantages none really but there could have been a plank
Jack received this toy Pirate Ship from his Nana, my mum, Christmas 2009/2010 and it is still a much loved and played with toy even 7 months on!
The pirate ship on its own retails at £25 but there was a special offer on which meant a separate toy, Pirate Island, could be purchased alongside for an extra £5 and I believe there was around a £7 saving on doing this so of course Mum was happy to get him another part of the toy.
The telescope which is positioned at the front of the boat (for obvious look out reasons) can be moved about in search of other pirates at sea and the crows nest which it stands by is a perfect place to put a bearded pirate! The cabin, which is purely for the use of the Captain has a set of large open out windows which allows the inside of the ship to be reached and thus played with easily.
The whole set is a real joy to play with and has been hours of fun for both myself and Jack. The only downsides that we have found is that there is no “plank” to walk but this has been easily fashioned out of some cardboard, brown crayons and some sticky tape.
Also none of the toys from the collection can be taken into the bath or paddling pool and they have too many holes in and are not able to float. WE did take some of the pirates into the bath but because they have air holes in the bottom they took on a bit of water and it took ages for me to get it all out.
This really was well worth the money paid and I would say it is a toy that will be played with for a good while to come by jack and then still be neat enough to keep for any other little ones!
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
