Green Clean Flying Machine

We have been really enjoying being members of the Bigjigs Play Patrol, and this month’s toy has been another hit.

Bigjigs Seaplane

The first thing I noticed about the Seaplane Green Wings was its environmental credentials- completely made from recycled materials, even the box. And the box- joy of joys you could just unfold the cardboard and set the toy free, I cannot tell you how happy that makes me, as I get so irate when toys are practically nailed into the box, and then you inevitably cut yourself trying to wrench it out with nail scissors or some other tool utterly inappropriate for the job!

Retailing at just under fifteen pounds, the plane itself is big and chunky, complete with a propeller that spins. It is made from recycled milk jugs, and is a great way to demonstrate to kids something fun that can be made from your recycling! This is a simple toy, no gadgets or gizmos. It is a plane, and it floats- what isn’t to love about that when you are 2, and as a parent- hooray- no noisy and irritating sound effects (unless you count the plane taking off noises I was making myself…..)

Seaplane to the rescue!

You can play with it in the bath, or out. You can rescue Elvis rubber ducks from certain disaster, or run around the lounge with it held aloft shouting ‘in the sky!’ loudly- which is Syd’s current preference! Suitable from age 1, it is a lovely, solid toy, easy for small hands to manoeuvre, and great for imaginative play.

Disclosure: We were given this toy to review as part of Syds role as a Bigjigs Play Patrol Agent

    Great toy!

    And well done Bigjigs for no silly screws to undo to get it out of the box. That irritates me too.

    Yes, over packaging drives me barmy- Christmas day normally sees me throwing things on the floor when I cannot get them out for my life!

    Oh my word, that looks EXACTLY like the seaplane that Husband and I got on to fly to the Maldivian island we got married on! I may have to buy one, just for that reason.
