Playmobil 5135 Large Pirate Ship Its AAAAArghmazing !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Playmobil 5135 Large Pirate Ship (Toy)
Where do I start with this, well lets start at the very beginning, its a very good place to start.This was a Christmas present for my 8 year old playmobil mad son,and got it for a fantastic price as well,arrived very well packed and on time after an initial let down from a company called Ace Of Deals who trade on Ebay,who never sent the ship,there is so much to this ship and I have to say there's a fair bit of building with it,one thing to note straight away,when you open the box you will see a large piece of polystyrene-DO NOT discard this as it is part of the ship and is not packing,it did take a while to build(however we did build it on Christmas day, so with everything else that was going on,we were back and forth to it) and some patience is required as it does have a few fiddly bits,there are lots of accessories with this,that any seafaring pirate could possibly need,from a treasure chest to firing cannons,as with all Playmobil its well constructed and thought out,and will give a child many,many hours of imaginative play,i bought some extra pirates to go with this and the pirate rowing boat with shark,my son has not stopped playing with it and the boat has been into many adventures and battles,including being raided by the Playmobil police and hijacked by 2 Playmobil clowns,a word of caution with this, whilst it does float perfectly in the bath(hence the reason for the polystyrene I mentioned earlier)you will need to remove the paper sails from the masts as they will be ruined otherwise, the sails do come off quite easily and did not lessen the enjoyment my son had with it in the bath,once the boat has dried out, the sails go back on easily enough,the boat also has small wheels underneath it,so runs nicely across the carpet, or any other firm surface,once again Playmobil has come up trumps with another quality product-To sum up,Happy Dad,Happy Pirates and a Happy Son-This is one boat that gets my vote.
