Anchors away! Set sail for make-believe maritime adventures with this delightful Maileg wooden ferry, designed with two ramps on either side to board toy cars, suitcases, and animal friends. Transportation toys are staples for play-based learning, and we’re excited to share why. They tickle kids’ innate, how-does-that-work curiosity and motivation to learn (what makes this ferry move? how does it stay afloat?). As young thinkers use their whole body to create motion, like sailing their ferry from shore to shore or pretending to be a whale in the water, they develop gross motor skills and coordination. And, for kids young and old, this wooden ferry has loads of storytelling opportunities in tow, which helps to reinforce literacy, communication skills, and creative thinking.
