As with most children, the “favorite toy” changes almost as fast as a clean diaper.
His first favorite toy was his baby bathtub. When it was out of our tub and in his room, he would climb in it, under it and just lay in it. He would always pull it out to play with.
Unfortunately, once he grew out of needing his baby tub, it went away. Which meant, so did his favorite toy. THE HORROR! He overcame it’s disappearance and fell in love with one of his birthday presents, the Fisher-Price Little People Lil’ Pirate Ship. To this day, four months later, it is still his favorite toy to play with. Sure, he makes his rounds and gives his other toys a little face time every day, but nothing beats his pirate ship. For a 16-month-old, still being super interested in a particular toy is impressive. I don’t even have an attention span that long.
The cannon shoots, and it makes awesome pirate ship noises. Also included are a little boy pirate and a parrot. Most importantly, however, there IS a sound on/off button. Actually, placing the cannonball into the cannon was Little Coop’s first trick. I would hand him the cannon and ask where it went and he would scoot over and place it in the cannon. He makes us so proud. 🙂
WARNING: My only problem with this pirate ship is the flag being detachable and personally I think it is too small for a 1-year-old to play with. So we removed it and will put it back when he’s older.
When I looked this up on Amazon, it appears that they are being discontinued, so if you have a little pirate in your life, it may be time to buy this awesome present before they’re gone for good.
