Tug Boat

The Tug is the perfect workboat for all those jobs around your harbour. Featuring a fully working winch and tow, spare double ended rope, bollards and a rotating radar. The hull is shaped to simulate the roll of the sea during play. The tow rope can be wound in and out for short or long tows. Hand made and beautifully finished in our workshops in Wales, it is painted in muted, child safe chalk paints under a durable, wipeable satin lacquer.

Learning Outcomes & Play

Fine motor skills are developed by using turning parts, handling rope to link and hook up with dockside bollards and bigger ships. Understanding of pulling and pushing forces needed during use. In play the tug is a busy and likeable character, proving that the small can sometimes be mightier than the large.
