Somewhere online (sorry, I don't remember where) I saw a blog post where someone turned a hinged box into a travel dollhouse with peg dolls.  I knew I wanted to make my 3 year old daughter something similar but it needed to be something different, something special to match my wonderful daughter's unique personality.  Aria is obsessed with pirates, skulls, and anatomy.  I decided to go with pirates.   The others might have come off less fun preschooler toy and more serial killer in training kit.  yeah...

The ship in all her glory.


And here is the outside of the box...


Everything dissembles and packs down neatly inside the box...


Fish for dinner!


Its the pirates life for me!


Yo ho ho!


Thanks for checking out my toy!

Thanks everyone!  Cheesy 

Alwaysinmyroom, the fish are made from paperclay.  I have some odd little press that I got in a swap a bit ago that allows you me to make fish.  This seemed a perfect application.  Cheesy

The minute I saw this I involuntarily said "Awww!". Cute and nice idea, great for taking along to appointments or any time when there's "boring bits" of a day. Makes my little brain start churning out ideas!

Super freaking beyond amazing! And yay for having a little girl that loves pirates and even more yay for her having a mom that encourages it (I teach preschool and get so sick of hearing the that's a girl toy/that's a boy toy arguments).

Are those metal dots i'm seeing magnets embedded into the box? I'm assuming with corrosponding magnets in all the peices?
