Rowan is a complete water baby, well water toddler nowadays and he loves anything to do with water, in particular bath time! When TOMY got in touch recently asking if we’d like to review one of their bath toys, in this case their Remote Control Rescue Boat I couldn’t resist as I knew he would love it.
The boat, captained by Captain Cat, arrived really well packaged and the packaging featured all of the instructions on how to use the product, along with a red toddler (and water) proof remote control.
It’s really easy to use and the boat has a number of tricks it can do depending on the amount of times you or your toddler presses the button on the red remote control. One press of the remote sounds the squeak (be warned as the squeak is quite loud) and the boat will begin moving through the water. Another press makes it stop. One more press activates the water cannon. The water cannon is definitely Rowan’s favourite feature as he loves trying to aim it at mummy or daddy and if he points it at himself it tickles him, it’s very funny!
There’s also a rudder towards the back of the boat that moves and helps the boat move in any direction. This is Rowan’s first remote control toy and it’s a great beginners one for him to start with.
The boat is recommend for children 12 months plus and requires 3 AAA batteries to work. Although it uses batteries the boat is completely safe to use in the water as the batteries are well protected by a rubber seal, within the compartment that they sit in.
This bath toy is available to buy at a number of retailers. Amazon currently has it priced at £13.49 which is a brilliant price for the amount of entertainment the boat provides during bath time (it would also be great to use during the summer in a paddling pool).
As it is a TOMY product you can rest assured that it is well made and will last quite a long time – just make sure you allow it to dry out properly after using.
