Jake and the Neverland Pirates Musical Pirate Ship Bucky Review
This is a toy that kids will love, carry around with them and play with for hours. As you’d expect from a Fisher-Price toy, it is well-designed and sturdy for those little fingers. We don’t give 5-star ratings easily but Jake’s Musical Pirate Ship Bucky definitely merits it.
Bucky is a pirate ship with lots of defenses and hidden features. There’s a snapping Tick Tock crocodile that pops out from behind a trap door, a push-button water-missile cannon and another button plays songs and Jake’s favorite phrases from the show, so your child can learn the meaning while interacting with Jake and his buddy Skully (figures included).
* Musical Pirate Ship ‘Bucky’ measuring 17 x 16 inches.
* Jake and Skully figures.
* Snapping Tick Tock Croc behind a hidden trap door.
* Spring-loaded cannon firing 3 water missiles (included).
* Plays theme tune, pirate phrases and sound effects.
* Ship rolls along the floor with a realistic ocean rocking motion.
* For ages 3-6 (not suitable for under 3’s because of small parts).
What’s So Fun About Bucky
If you haven’t heard of Jake the Neverland Pirate and his musical ship Bucky, then I guess either you’re looking for a gift for a grandchild, niece, nephew or young friend, or you’ve been hiding under a rock while your child watches TV! Jake and the Neverland Pirates is a hugely popular TV show for preschool kids based around the classic Peter Pan story. Any child who watches the show will love to play with his or her own model of Jake’s ship Bucky.
For young fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates this is a ‘must have’ toy. They can push it along pretending it’s at sea and hold wars with enemies.
There are tons of neat features like the trap door that releases the snapping crocodile, and the cannon that fires missiles. There are little spikes in different places on the ship that Jake and Skully’s feet fit onto, so they don’t fall off when the ship is carried or rolling along.
Jake and Skully the parrot are well-made figures that look true to the cartoon characters on the show. Kids will recognize them at once. This is a great interactive toy for imaginative play. Both boys and girls will love thinking up adventures for Jake and Skully to have in Bucky the musical pirate ship.
What’s Not To Love?
The only criticism that I can think of is the doors do come off rather too easy and may be lost. But I think that’s better than having them fixed on so firm that they break!
Some reviewers suggest that Fisher Price could make this toy even better by including more action figures and maybe Captain Hook’s boat – but if they did that it would surely be more expensive.
I actually like that those other things are optional. You can get Bucky the musical pirate ship for your child for a low price and have grandma or aunts and uncles buy the extras. So when the rest of the family asks you for hints for Junior’s gift this year, you can just go ahead and tell them something from this list of all the Jake & the Neverland Pirates toys
Bucky is not waterproof and won’t float, so if your child is going to want to play with Bucky in the bath, it’s better to get the Splashin’ Bucky Bath Toy from that list. There’s even a Bucky playhouse!
This is a top quality 5-star toy for preschoolers. Little fans of the ‘Jake and The Neverland Pirates’ show will adore it. In fact, kids who have never seen or heard of Jake before would love the toy too. There’s so much to do and show with it. Recommended for all kids from ages 3-6.
