The Mighty Colossus - Jake and the Neverland Pirates

We have spent the last few weeks having fun and testing out The Mighty Colossus for Jake and the Neverland Pirates. A massive 2 foot toy ship, with 4 levels for play and 7 play pieces. Your child can have their very own Jakes Mighty Colossus High Seas Adventure with this Playset that retails at £39.99 and is available from Smyths and suitable for ages 3 years and up.
Mr C's eyes lit up when he saw the ship, he love Jake and the Neverland pirates and was excited to get it open. I am pleased to say there was very little set up required before Mr C could play. I just had to click the net, ladder and mast onto the top of the ship and it was ready to go.
The set comes with 7 play pieces a Jake figure, Lord Fathom figure, cannon, 2 coconuts on spears to fire from the cannon, a telescope and a pile of coconuts to fire from the catapult. The climb net can be clipped onto various opinion the ship so Jake can scramble up and down in different places. There are 8 fab action built into the ship for you child to interact in, double barrel cannon, catapult, secret trap door, turning wheel, spinning sail, hidden treasure room, jail cell and net slide.
I was impressed with how well made the ship is, its really chunky, sturdy plastic and I loved that it is on wheels so that Mr C can push it around. When the Playset is all closed up it is quite narrow so fits nicely down the side of Mr C's bed. Its very visually stimulating with stickers and 3d mouldings all around the inside and outside of the ship. I would be more than happy to pay the price tag as its a well made and branded toy that's great quality.
Mr C absolutely loved the ship, he has spent every hour not in school playing with it and living takes it to his room and places it next to his bed ready for the next day. I asked him what he liked and he said "I like the blue and Jake is awesome" Its lovely to watch him interact and make Jake catch Lord Fathom and put him in jail, he also loves the cannon and catapult.
We made a little intro video and also a little footage of Mr C playing with the ship for our YouTube channel so you see a little of the ship in action.

Thanks For Reading
