Why are Playground Boats & Ships so popular?

Imaginative play

If there’s anything children love doing, it is imagining when they learn at school and home. Playground boats and ships are excellent ways of helping and encouraging children to use their imagination. Your children can lose themselves in the imagination of the high seas. We guarantee that the Creative Play play ships and boats have many interesting features to help with children’s imagination. Soon you’ll find children role-playing on these boats and ships.


Playground boats and ships have numerous activities that children can get involved in. You might find your children using the outdoor boat for endless hours playing a range of imaginative games. The endless possibilities are very engaging and keep children active for long periods of time.

Enhance Creativity

Thanks to the imagination encouraged by all of our play boats and ships, your children’s creativity will improve. The outdoor play activities facilitated by this innovative playground equipment, will help your kids come up with various ways to solve day-to-day life problems.

Active Play

Any of our playground boats and ships, be it wooden ship playground equipment or play rowing boats, encourages active play. Children get to run and climb up and down these ships. Many sections allow sliding and tying. Boats also help children to pretend to row.

All of these and more, are the active play your kids can enjoy playing. These physical activities in the long run, will enhance their motor skills, coordination, balance and help encourage healthy growth.


The outdoor ship and boat equipment facilitate learning and help children retain what they learnt in the classroom, about ships and boats. As children assume roles in a ship or boat, they learn the language used in voyages or fishing expeditions. It is also easy to teach children about parts of a ship or a boat, with play boats and ships. The great thing is, the children rarely notice they are learning because of all the fun they are having.

Cognitive development

In the long run, play boats and ships help with cognitive development from all the learning that occurs as children have fun. As children acquire creativity, their cognitive skills improve.

Social Skills

Kids play boats are great for teaching social skills to children. Without even realising it, children unite and take turns to perform various tasks on their play ship. Of course, children talk as they play which improves communication. Other vital social skills your children will learn include cooperation, responsibilities and relationships.
