Product Review: Little People Pirate Ship
Imagine being the master of your own destiny or the captain of your own pirate ship. If you’re two years old, such lofty goals might seem unreachable, that is, until you lay your eyes on a real treasure from Fisher Price.
When I was approached with the opportunity to do a review for this toy, I agreed, as being the parent of twins, they are constantly on the lookout for the “next big thing” – as much as a two-year-old can be. Anyway, jumping on this opportunity to do my first product review, I was pleased to give my perspective to other parents who are looking for a new toy for their collection.
|Observing the packaging. Not sure what to make of it!|
|Deciding on whether or not someone should “walk the plank!”|
- A special cannon that can be set off by little hands pulling a lever
- A parrot that can be pressed on for a musical surprise
- An opportunity to pull the ship’s wheel and make the plank pop out
- Pirate Ship comes with sleeping and eating quarters, a working cannon, two pirate figures, parrot, cannon ball, treasure map and chair.
The firing of the cannon and the surprise that continued with release of the plank by turning the ship’s wheel was a source of considerable engagement for the boys. As well, being able to open the lower level of the ship and place the characters inside was fun for the kids as well.
|Just some of the twist ties that had to be undone before the toy was played with. Very frustrating!|
In general, I would recommend this toy to any parent with kids between the ages of two and four who is looking for a different way of engaging their kids.
