What It Is
Kids can set sail with Jake and his ship with the LEGO Duplo Jake and the Never Land Pirates Jake's Pirate Ship Bucky building set. This set comes with 56 pieces for building Bucky and an island. Bucky features a sail, a lookout tower, an opening and closing window, and a cannon that actually shoots. On the island, kids can build and add a palm tree, bendable green leaves, and flowers along with a treasure chest, a shovel, and a sword. There are Skully-, gold doubloon-, and pirate-decorated bricks as well as basic Duplo bricks in different colors, shapes, and sizes. As with all Duplo sets, the pieces are large and chunky to make it safe and easy for young kids to build and play. This set also includes Jake and Captain Hook Duplo figures.
Why It’s Fun
As far as LEGO Duplo sets go, this one is really a deluxe set. In addition to building, it engages kids in lots of imaginative play. Kids can build and rebuild Bucky and the island, and then battle Captain Hook, bury the treasure, escape to the island, or create any other adventures they want. Kids will love the working elements in this set, including steering the boat, opening and closing the window, and, of course, firing the cannon.
Who It’s For
Jake's Pirate Ship Bucky is for Jake and the Never Land Pirates fans ages 2–5.
What To Be Aware Of
The cannon shoots pretty far and fast, so make sure your child plays a safe distance away from his or her friends or anything breakable.
This set is compatible with all other LEGO Duplo building sets for more building opportunities.
