The Playmobil Pirates sets are perfect for young children with vivid imaginations. This is my 4 year old's favorite toy. We spend countless hours sailing the high seas together. He has selected the 'skeleton' from the Pirate Island set as his own personae and we call him Captain Bones. The ship is very well made and has withstood many dramatic battles against "the bad pirates". The details are what he most enjoys, like the treasure, swords, goblets, lamps and other small items that come with these sets. Whenever I chase down Captain Bones with the shark figure, trying to take a bite of his boney leg, my son laughs with joy. And that makes this set my favorite toy as well: most of the time I am watching him and the smiles rather than the pirate my son has assigned me. You will get months and months of use out of this set.

UPDATE: He is now 6 years old, and STILL plays with this set a whole bunch. A couple pieces have broken now after almost a year and a half of very heavy play, but it has held up well to use and still maintains its quality. The small hook on the bowspirit (the pointy mast on the bow) broke, so the foresail doesn't attach anymore, but he doesn't seem to mind. The shark is still trying to catch Captain Bones almost daily :)

FINAL UPDATE: It has been four years since my first review of this toy, and my son is approaching 9 years old, all too quickly. Sometime this past year, this toy finally stopped coming out of the toy box for adventures on the seven seas. He has just moved on now to other toys, as children will do, like skateboards, computer games, footballs... This past week, I gathered all of the items that were left, some having slipped into the maelstrom of the couch no doubt, and placed them in the 'yard sale bin'. This toy was worth so much to a father and his son. Its value goes far beyond simple play time adventures we had together. Four years of solid play: a rarity in such a confused, fast-paced world. Fare thee well, Captain Bones: may your hull be forever sound, with a strong wind at your back, and bright stars to sail her by.

This is a fantastic, wonderful pirate ship! It took about an hour to assemble, but the end result is soooo worth it. Playmobil ships are wonderfully constructed, and the quality is outstanding. This is the third Playmobil pirate ship my 4 year old received (two for Christmas, and one about a month earlier). He is not receiving them as replacements, but to add to the pirate fleet. These are just so durable that I will not hesitate to buy the Playmobil name. Our 18 month old twins are constantly after these, and although they will snap apart, they just as easily are put back together. They float as advertised, but the stickers will come off, so beware of that. A small detail like that is not enough for me to give it any negative marks. These are awesome, awesome toys!

Check other buying sources before buying on Amazon. I have found Amazon retailers to be the highest in price. I have found the lowest price at Toys R Us. For example, I found this one on sale at TRU for fifty nine dollars. Quite a difference from the one hundred and twenty nine the retailer is asking for right now. They're worth a lot, but there's a limit. -

*Update* - 1/13/14 - Still going strong. It's been taken apart and put together more times than I can count. Still as strong as the day we bought it.

This is a very large pirate ship with lots of parts and needs to be partially assembled. My 10 year old grandson put it all together quickly for his four year old brother who absolutely LOVES it.

This ship is really awesome when you get it put together. And yes it takes awhile to to put together like an hour or more. But its easy to assembly, there are just a lot of pieces. So make room on the floor to spread out and put aside some time. Its worth it.

My son has 3 of the play Mobil pirate ships, and this Is by far his favorite!

The ship was fairly easy to put together. My son is eight, so his 15 year old brother helped him put it together originally. But now my eight year old son is able to disassemble and reassemble with out any issues.

It is so attractive, that we leave it out as a display / decoration. I do not like clutter, but this is so nice we leave it on top of his deck hutch as a decoration.

He plays with this ship for hours and hours. I love toys that use creativity and imaginative play. So much better than him sitting in front of a screen.

Really good quality toy.

This was the best toy for my little guy. It's all he asked Santa for and it's more than he expected. He loved putting it together with his dad. Lot of pcs but worth the final result!!!

This is a large toy and (at $50)expensive, but worth the money. We purchased this for my son on his sixth birthday and he is still playing with it daily a year later. The ship has lost some accessories but he adores it. He takes it in the tub and the pool. He takes it apart and puts it back together. A lot of toys break or wear out after being assembled/dissaembled a few times but not this playmobil ship. I am very impressed with the durability. When you float it, it floats upright all by itself, unlike other toy boats we've had. Just good imaginative fun and all one can ask of any toy.

Plusses:
-Durability
-Floatability
-Detail and quality features.

Misses:
- Plunger firing cannons- projectiles quickly lost.
- Man overboard! Crew and accessories also prone to disappearing under furniture and between cushions on your couch.

UPDATE: Approaching three years and he still plays with it frequently and has not broken it despite constantly taking it apart and reassembling it. When he is finally done with it I plan to box it up for his children.

My six year old Grandson got this for Christmas. He enjoyed playing with this toy and using his imagination. He and his Dad put it together. You do need an adult to help assemble as there are many pieces. It is very impressive once it is assembled. It is a great toy for kids who like to pretend play.

We purchased this toy over a year ago for one of our daughters for Christmas. She was only 4 at the time but has always been around Playmobil and is already an expert at playing with it. She loves pirates and adventure toys, so the pirate ship was perfect for her. It has wheels and is easily carried around. The pirates can hang in different positions on the ship and there is even a zip line ! I grew up with Playmobil and these are durable, great quality toys. I have parts and figures that are nearly 30 years old ! Both my girls now 8 and 5 play hours and hours with Playmobil, there is no limit to their imagination !!

My nephew loved this present. I decided to open the box before giving it to him and I'm glad I did. There was no way he would be able to set it up. There are many, many pieces. It took me about an hour to set it up. I'm sure it would be a fun project with an older child. The ship is built very well. There were a bag of pieces missing. I contacted Playmobil and someone got back to me quickly and asked for the piece numbers and said that they would ship them to me. Luckily they weren't vital to the building of the ship, that would have been very bad. I bought this through amazon because the price was lower than in most stores.
