The name of my blog is 3 Chickens and a Boat, and our boat is a big part of how we like to relax and enjoy life. It’s part of our broad philosophy, our approach to life, to leave space for three chickens and a boat, which symbolizes the kind of life we want to lead. We have a lot more chickens than that, but that’s a story for another day. This Christmas, we decided we wanted to give our son a “boat” of his own: Playmobil’s Drago’s Ship.
You wouldn’t expect a boat like this to float, but it actually does. Our son can re-enact our boat trips, on a much “cooler” boat by children’s standards, even when the weather isn’t very nice. He can fill up the sink and let it float lazily around, like we do in the ocean in the summer. All of our favourite memories are at his fingertips. It’s recommended for kids ages 4-12, which is perfect for us.
If he doesn’t want to get lost in the past, Drago’s Ship is at the ready for him to get lost in fantasy. This floating ship has everything including a dragon cage with lock to contain captured dragons, functioning crossbows that are ideal for defending against any incoming fire, Drago, another figure, spears, torch, and other accessories.
Between the past and fantasy tales of dragon catching, our son has all sorts of opportunities for adventure, bringing his imagination to life. It’s fun to watch him play and it’s nice that he can entertain himself while I attend to the rest of what needs done to make our house run smoothly. After all, he’s old enough to have a boat of his own and those chickens aren’t going to feed themselves.
