Little Tikes Anchors Pirate Ship Review

Little Tikes Pirate ShipThe Little Tikes Anchors Away Pirate Ship certainly has plenty of features. The toy is a fun water table designed to look like a pirate ship. It’s made of plastic but the legs are supposed to look like the wood of an old ship, with plenty of barnacles attached. The height is good for toddlers to stand at and older children can sit or kneel as in the picture.

The pirate ship includes a water cannon, slide, pirate sail, two pirate characters, buckets, gears, boats, and other floating accessories. There’s also an anchor that can be lowered and raised when kids want to pretend to set sail.

There are a couple of things you need to know. First, the pump that circulates the water has to be operated manually. Second, buyers have reported that if you leave the Little Tikes pirate ship outside it will fade in the sun, so you need to think about where you’ll keep it. Water play tends to be messy so most parents will want it to be played with outdoors, although it could be used inside on the right flooring or on a large waterproof mat.

This is a good choice of toy for a small child who likes pirates, boats and playing with water. Both boys and girls will find a lot to do here and there’s enough to keep children of different ages amused. Slightly older kids will especially love the squirting water cannon and the spinners to create currents.

The Anchors Away water table and pirate ship is a large toy but the price is good for what you get. It’s probably going to be your children’s main water play area and it should last if you look after it. Water play can be unbeatable fun for kids and the pirate design will fire their imagination to create plenty of adventures for the pirate characters and the boats. Recommended.
