Activity Boat

Activity Boat

Spring 2014 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: PlanToys, Inc.
Price: $30.00

Young sailors, swimmers and anglers alike will enjoy adding this activity boat to their nautical playtime in the bathtub and pool. The small fishing boat comes with a removable cabin for its fisherman, a cloth sail, a detachable fishhook and buoyant starfish, turtle, and fish that are designed to be the catch of the day. The first time our testers opened the box, they played with it on the floor for about 30 minutes before then asking mom to run a bath. And then they were hooked.

While some adult assistance may be necessary to affix the sail and hook of the boat, all will be ocean ready in a few minutes. The boat and accessories are well-designed for little hands, with smooth, wood surfaces to touch and play. The set is crafted through sustainable manufacturing and made of safe, nontoxic, environmentally-friendly materials.
