What is the Fun Ferry?
- Children can simply wind the toy and watch it travel through the water by the paddle wheel in the back
- Open top cavity also allows for shildren to place other water proof toys in the boat as a passenger,
- This toy is based on the principles of bouyancy. Children will be able to first hand see how weight effects travel speed and also the ability of an object to float.
- As a small plastic toy, this has a very low cost of production. While all attemps are made to make it waterproof, the toy is not 100% waterproof and thus damage can occur to the internal windup motor over time. As this is one solid peice of plastic the toy is safe as long as it is not broken. However as it is to be used in the water parental supervision is advised.
