Ahoy, Mateys! Since everyone is talking like a pirate today, I'm highlighting some pirate-based fun here on THE ROCK FATHER! Did you know that PLAYMOBIL has an entire Playmobil Pirates collection? Well, they sure do, and the pinnacle item of that collection has to be the Radio-Controlled Pirate Ship with Underwater Motor. While we don't personally have one here (nowhere to really use it proper), there's a few videos on YouTube like this one that show off just how cool this ship really is...

Command the high seas on a quest for treasure with the Pirates Ship with RC Underwater Motor. Equipped with a remote-controlled underwater motor, kids can not only propel the ship but also control its path as it makes its way through uncharted waters. Ward off enemies with the functioning cannons and store all the pirate booty in the central storage compartment. Set also includes three pirate figures, treasure with chest, black sails, swords, barrel, shovel, anchor, and other accessories. The RC Underwater Motor is compatible with most PLAYMOBIL boats. Requires 1 x 9V battery and 6 x AA batteries (not included).

This and other Playmobil Pirates are available now from my associate, Amazon:
