Spotted on the horizon and now sailing into port, it’s the The Jolly Pirate Ship from Le Toy Van. This is a classic toy for little pirates that triggers hours of imaginative play and role play. Features include- a crow's nest, a 'walk-the-plank', rigging, a spring loaded firing cannon with cannonballs, a wind-up anchor, a deck trap-door, a helm, a figurehead and a rear opening stern for access. Ahoy me hearties!
Don’t forget your crew! The ship is scaled to fit with Le Toy Van
set of Budkin pirates.
Our Take on the Jolly Pirate Ship
We love this Jolly Pirate Ship. Le Toy Van have thought of everything and presented a realistic ship for little pirates with all the same exciting features as the real deal. The pirate ship is a great way to develop a range of social and creative skills, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing anchored in the harbour of your living room when not in use.
This pirate ship from Le Toy Van is overflowing with educational value. It triggers imaginative and creative play; this is essential in enabling children to learn how to express and communicate their ideas and feelings, and it gives little ones the opportunity to initiate their own learning, making choices and decisions independently. Handling the figures supports little one’s physical development; both fine and gross motor skills are a basic foundation of childhood development. Building strong muscles and developing co-ordination gives children a head start in other areas like communication and literacy. When it comes to starting school or nursery, strong hand muscles and co-ordination are vital in enabling children to hold a pencil correctly. When used with others, the pirate ship can be used to create role play situations which is great for developing communication skills and turn-taking behaviour.
