Jake and the Neverland Pirates Toy Review

Dylan's favourite TV programme is currently Disney Junior's Jake and the Neverland Pirates, although he has always reffered to it as Yo Ho! We were recently sent some character toys to review from Fisher Price and the little dude has been loving trying them out.

We were sent two bath toy sets; A Pirate boat complete with characters and a set of three themed squirter toys.  They immediately got mixed up together and have led to hours of bath time fun.


The boat attaches to the side of the bath with two sucker pads and seems very sturdy.  There are two places where you can pour water in, and it falls down through the boat via several little holes.  Dylan had fun scooping water up with the little boat and pouring it, watching it run down the slide and back into the bath.  He also had fun making the smaller Jake slide down the slide and into the bath.

The squirting toys are a good size and hold plenty of water.  The Tic Toc Crocodile was a favourite and fited in well with the ducks, frogs and various bath toys we already own.  The bath toys are easy to play with, encouraging of imagination and not too fiddly.  There is nothing to put together and they are ready to go straight from the box.




We were also sent a pirate rock guitar to review.  Dylan's favourite aspect of the show is the music so I was interested to see how he would get on with the guitar.  I do think that he is slightly too young for this toy although it is marketed at slightly older children (aged 3+) so that is no surprise.  The yellow plastic 'strings' can be strummed and the white cross bones can be moved up and down, both of these actions resulting in short bursts of music or pirate phrases.

Dylan does love the music and has a mini boogie everytime it plays but he hasn't been reaching for this toy as much as I expected him too.  It is limited in is functions but I think an older child would have much more fun being creative with it (Dylan has only just turned 2).  I was impressed that batteries were included and it could be used as soon as it was out of the box.  I do think this is a good toy, the sound quality is really impressive, and the guitar is easy to use, even for toddlers, but I do think the optimum age for this is around 3 years old. Alternatively, the bloke had a lot of fun with this, and highly recommends it so maybe it would be a perfect Christmas present for the 29 year old in your life?



We have had great fun testing these toys and I think the pirate ship bath toy is our favourite.  I think they would make great Christmas presents for a little Jake and the Neverland Pirates fan.

  2. Given how often I have to rescue our guitar hero guitars from Kitty I think I may just have found something for her Christmas list!
