Imaginext: There be Pirates Ahead!

My family is an Imaginext family! I love the toys and the play they inspire. It all started with the Batcave from Imaginext that my oldest got for Christmas, followed by Spike the Dinosaur that my mom bought my son and then the little action figures my husband I purchased to encourage even more play.

The neat thing about Imaginext is that there are so many different sets to choose from, there is sure to be one that appeals to a child you love. For example, the Pirate Ship! My son had an opportunity to play with this - and the "coolness" factor is amazing.

The Pirate Ship comes almost fully assembled. You just have to add finishing touches, like the Pirate Flag. Once you are ready to play, you put the ship on a flat surface and watch it sail away! That's because it has a wheel on the bottom that let's it slowly roll, of course only at the command of the captain. It also has neat accessories, like a Captain, with removable hat/coat/wig, and a pirate. It has a treasure chest, 4 coins, 2 swords and a treasure map. Finally, there is a cannon with three red projectiles that can be shot simultaneously or individually.

I love how there are little actions that can be done, with a Pirate's Help. Like you can drop the sails, make someone walk the plank, raise the anchor, fire the canons or have the pirate's re-enact a fight scene.

Both my boys LOVE this. My oldest even sleeps with the ship at his bedside. Although, I do still think the Batcave is his favorite. My only problem is I can't get Batman to fit properly on the ship! Such a small detail! But the pirates can raid the Batcave and make all of the "action spots" work there. It's so odd!

I am excited to get the accessories for it, like Hefty the Whale, Bite the Shark, SeaBlade the Octopus and some turtles and skeletons! I know both my boys would love them and they would make perfect birthday and Christmas gifts!

The Pirate Ship is suggested for ages 3- 8. It measures 19" L x 7½" W x 18½" H. It retails for $36.

So, if you are looking for a new playset for your child, the Mom Buzz highly suggests the Pirate Ship! What else can I say but "Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho- A Pirates Life for Me!"
