Green Toys Tugboat
Classic Tugboat Made from 100% Recycled Milk Jugs
Embark on a cruise across the bathtub. Navigate the wading pool. Even splash around in the occasional mud puddle. There’s no end to the Good Green Fun young sailors can have with the Green Toys Tugboat. Made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic, this trusty tugboat is both good for the Earth, and – most importantly – safe for the busy little folks who play there. Available in three different color combinations: yellow, blue, and red. Recommended for ages 6 months and up.
Scoop and Pour Fun
This colorful yellow, red, and blue boat floats great, making it the perfect toy for water play in the tub, the pool, and even at the beach. It has a handle from the wheelhouse to the back deck and a wide-mouth spout at the front to scoop and pour water. Kids love making waterfalls out of the spout, while parents love that it makes bath time (especially hair washing!) fun and enjoyable. The molded detailing on the front of the 100% recycled plastic Green Toys Tugboat wheelhouse features the lettering “S. S. Green Toys,” along with a ladder, life preserver, anchor, lights, and horns. There are also five windows through which you can see the captain’s seat and steering wheel. The deck has simulated cargo net under the arching handle, which, when the boat is submerged, allows the hull to fill with water that then pours out the front spout.
Old-Fashioned Fun that's Made in the USA
Like all Green Toys products, the Tugboat is manufactured in the USA with a tight, local supply chain that minimizes the carbon footprint and supports the domestic economy. Made from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, this super-safe toy contains no BPA, Phthalates, PVC, or external coatings, eliminating the fear of toxins and lead paint. It's also dishwasher safe, making it great for both indoor and outdoor water play. Packaged in 100% recyclable corrugated boxes that are printed with soy inks and don’t have plastic films or twist ties.

Just so you understand how horrible hairwashing can be, my daughter has, pretty much from birth, screamed while getting her hair washed (as in, blood-curdling, get-a-mother's-heart-racing, thank-goodness-the-neighbors-are-an-acre-away-and-so-hopefully-can't-hear-this-when-the-windows-are-open SCREAMS); she does not like getting her hair washed, oh no she does not. At this point, I was pretty much using a plastic takeout container of water to try to get the rinsing done as quickly as possible. While looking at the cute red tug boat, however, I began to think "hmmm, it holds more water than the takeout container, which could make it an even faster job, but it's also got that spout and a handle, so it should be easier to control and aim . . . plus it's cute and brightly colored - could be distratcting!" I let her play with the tug during the next couple (non-hairwashing) baths - after all, I didn't want her to necessarily associate it with hairwashing and start hating the poor thing!Read more ›
The top deck is held on by three screws. Two are accessible through the front two windows with a #1 Phillips screwdriver that is at least 2.5" long. The third is under the back of the handle and requires drilling a hole to access. The plastic is soft enough that I was able to use a screwdriver with some pressure. I am posting photos in the review section shortly. For the two screws in the cabin there is only one exact path in, high and on the outside.
Take care not to dislodge the two cabin screws as they are difficult to place back in their holes.
I am glad to see that their Ferry comes apart with just four easy to pop tabs.
Best of all, it's super-durable and actually floats, even after it's taken on some water. We were looking at an Elmo themed boat before we bought this one, but absurdly the other toy didn't float in the bath tub!
Also worth noting: No sharp edges or points, and despite the handle I've seen no use as a bludgeoning object on the part of our daughter, who typically manages to weaponize everything she encounters. She has, however, used it to help wash her brother's hair, which is both adorable and efficient.
Additionally, this is made in an "Earth-Friendly" way, which really appeals to my wife who actually cares about the planet she lives on. Er... and me too, of course. Go green.
Final thoughts: I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if you were to only buy one bath toy, this would be it. You could sail it around, sink it, pour water out, and even have your wash-cloth ride on it. Also, it's pretty inexpensive, weighing in around twelve bucks when we got it, and if you were only buying one bath toy I'd assume you were operating on a tight budget, which makes this tug-boat a good fit in many ways.
BLACK MOLD everywhere -- I tried to take the boat apart to clean it, but it does not come apart easily (at all, for me -- will need to break to take apart, I think). I plan to soak it in a bath of bleach and see if that will make it workable for a while longer, if likely less colorful. Disappointing major design flaw from an otherwise wonderful company!
