W/ Alphabe-Thursday

Wooden fantasy ship - aka playground!

W is for WOODEN.

A friend of ours (Cam Aiken) is an artist/carpenter with a four-year-old son.  Look what Cam built in his backyard - a cool fantasy ship made of wood!

 Bow of the pirate's  fantasy ship

Truth be told, this ship is flying the Canadian flag...so maybe it's MY imagination that it's a pirate ship.

WOW Cam is indeed a very talented fella what kid would not want a place like this. Lucky son and his friends. Imaginations will be on high alert just the way it should be no technology needed. Perfect. Hug B

Fabulous play fort. Many hours will be spent by many kids and a few adults on that structure.

Pamela Gordon said...

wow! so neat!

Birdman said...

It puts all my endeavors to shame. But heck, I was 12. Must admit though the two floor 'house' with a small stove 20 feet up was a gem. A bit dangerous, but great in the winter to smoke ciggies and bring girls. I was dangerous! hahahaha

Judy said...

And if that doesn't keep the neighbourhood kids busy, nothing will!!!

Linda W. said...

What lucky kids to have such a grand play structure.

Hazel Ceej said...

Let's play! I'm not sure who would love this more - my son or myself :)

RedPat said...

What a lucky kid! I thought it was in a park when I first opened your post!

Sylvia K said...

I love it!! Wow, my kids would have gone nuts over a place like this in our backyard when they were growing up!! Come to think of it, so would I and would probably have been playing with them instead of cleaning our house and cooking!!

Lois said...

Wow! That kid is so fortunate to have a playhouse like that.

Gosh I bet Cam is the most popular Dad ever right now, what an amazingly detailed pirate? ship :)

Shammickite said...

I think my little grandchildren would love to have a playdate with the Aiken children.

Halcyon said...

What a lucky little boy! I thought these were in a public park. Really nice.

Grandma C said...

Forget the housework I would be outside playing with the grand kids if mine had one. lol

Ginny said...

This is awesome! The ship is more than just a ship, it has everything!!! Did he use his own plans or find them somewhere? I would think a boy would never want to go in the house with this!

Stephanie said...

Wonderful creation!

cieldequimper said...

So sorry about the shootings.

I could send you some of my Playmobils to inhabit the pirate ship!

William Kendall said...

That is a grand thing for the kids to play with. If they're Canadian pirates, they say thank you after robbing you.

Felicia said...

wow how cool is that. he is a great carpenter

Lowell said...

I like these pieces so much. Well, I love wood for one thing, but they seem to much more user-friendly than the kind of overwrought plastic crap we've got in the children's playgrounds around here. Fun times!

Jim said...

Kids like to play pirate, don't they? Ours likes to play pirate and robot. Doctor and pet vet too. She doesn't treat snakes or bugs.
