Review: Fisher Price Imaginext Pirate Ship Playset

fisher price pirate ship

One of my 5-year-old's favorite toys right now is the Fisher Price Imaginext Pirate Ship. This play set encourages him to use his imagination, takes him away from the iPad (who doesn't love that, right?!?) and is great for multiple kids to play with at the same time. Plus, who doesn't like to practice their pirate "Argghhh!" or "Ahoy, Matey!" when playing?!This fun … [Read more...]
