Favorite Things: Wooden Boats

Wooden boats for the bathtub are something I'm always on the lookout for. Through the years, I've found them at handcrafts stores and flea markets, like the brown and red tug boats, above. But I'm happy to report that you can buy the red sailboat, on the left, above, including a cloth sail, from Nova Natural for a very reasonable price. I like that it's waterproof, sturdy, and big enough for passengers, like the duck and frog above. Ours went sailing in the stream this past weekend. I took this photo of the crafts and their pilots after the races were over.

Hi Regina,
While you are on the subject of wooden toys, I thought I would mentioned that Ikea has several wooden toys for kids that are very affordable. I was there the other week and thought of your blog.
Thanks for the great posts.

My 5 year old son saw me looking at this picture and was all over it. Good thing his birthday is coming up. I now have an idea for a present.

Now that's a great picture.

Aviod toys made of balsa wood. Those things break EVERY TIME.

Very cool. I've been wondering if someone made boats that actually float! We've been through a few plastic bathtub boats (received as gifts) that just don't do the trick. I'm going to have to save this to Christmas, but very thankful for the tip.
