Kids Boat Stuff For a 3 1/2 Year Old

Hi All,

Our daughter is coming up on 3 1/2 and we're looking for suggestions about good boat toys / ideas that can help keep her having a good time. She already loves the boat but at 3 1/2 the attention span is short and we can't physically fit the amount of toys her attention span seems to require. Last summer all the toys we brought were duds. She much preferred the companionway stairs, pots & pans, the main sheet, knots, the steering wheel etc..

Night time we have fairly well covered and she gets a couple of Dora episodes on TV which she really looks forward to and books. It's time when we are under sail for a while when she tends to get a little bored..

Whet we are looking for:

1- Ideas of toys/items etc. that will not take over the cabin or cockpit but that will be fun and keep her interest.

2- Ideas for fun boat games. We play treasure hunt & scavenger hunt where we look for certain items on an island we visit or boats, whales, seals buoys etc..

Any input from those who have been through 3 1/2 on a boat would be great!!
