I bought this as a gift for a 12-month old. The boats were received just as pictured - brightly colored, numbered 1 through 3, and fully plastic without any way for water to get stuck inside and mold.
I am docking 1 star because the 6 boats were literally packaged as two separate sets. Each set contained 3 boats zip-tied together with its own product tag. It looked like I bought 2 sets on purpose, especially because each set showed boats numbered 1 through 3. The only difference was the colors of the boats in each set. I guess I should have read the product description more closely because I assumed the numbers would go 1 through 6.
I ended up giving 1 of the sets as a gift and kept the second one for my 18 month old daughter. She loves them. They float around and can connect to each other to make a boat "train." We practice our counting and colors. The boats also have drainage holes that are fun ways to "make it rain" in the tub.
I do recommend, especially because most bath toys on the market are of the squirt variety. These stay nice and clean! If you are purchasing for yourself, I don't think the two separate packages matter. But it might be something to keep in mind if you were planning to order for a gift.
