Ferry Boat with Cars – a review for Green Toys

Ferry Boat with Cars

With the better weather we’ve been having it’s been time to get out in the garden with the paddling pool.  Yes it’s summer, ok I’m whispering that, please don’t blame me if the storm clouds descend again.  I’d like to share with you the Ferry Boat and Cars from the Green Toys range this month.  Another great recycled plastic toy that we love!

Ferry Boat with Cars

This Ferry Boat with Cars is an ideal toy for the paddling pool – it actually floats.  Aimed at children aged 3 years and over, I can also confirm that 46-year-olds love this too – it’s fab.

As with all Green Toys products, this set is made from 100% recycled plastic, and is dishwasher safe.  You get a Ferry Boat with a moveable ramp and two cars, which can sit side by side on one in front of the other on the ferry.  I couldn’t actually wait for Monkey to test the floatation out, so I tried it in our kitchen sink myself. This also gives you an idea of the size.

The details are fab, little benches that figures can sit on, we’ve tested it with Lego, Tonka Town and Brio figures so far.  The ramp is great, you pull it out or push it back in and it retracts under the deck.  I’m not sure who was actually more excited about this; me or Monkey.

With any toy that can be used with water, you want to be able to give it a good clean afterwards.  As I’ve already mentioned the Ferry Boat with Cars is dishwasher safe and the deck can be removed quite easily from the hull of the ferry to aid with cleaning too.

So what did my Eco Toy Tester think?  He absolutely loves the Ferry Boat with Cars, real toys that float.  They have been in the paddling pool and in the bath.  He’s also just as happy playing with them indoors.  He hasn’t got anything quite like this Ferry Boat, it’s a bit different and it’s really sparked his imagination.

He’s had hours of entertainment from his latest Green Toys delivery and I can’t see that changing any time soon. Even if the weather changes, you can already see that this toy will just move into the Living Room.

Priced at £19.99 I really think this is great value for money, it’s a robust plastic toy with no metal parts.  Nothing is going to snap off and end the play potential.  It’s a bit different, it’s going to last and give lots of fun, Monkey loves his Ferry Boat with Cars. What more can you ask.

Next month sees Monkey having more water fun with Green Toys – see you then!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. I love this toy! I can see this being amazing in the garden, in the bath or in the house. The cars and ramp look great too and the fact you can take it apart and put it in the dishwasher is pure genius! x

  2. This looks like a great toy for the paddling pool and bath. I love that you can put it in the dishwasher – we have so many toys that we have had to throw away as we just couldn’t get them properly clean.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
