Slip an inflated balloon on top of the boat, put it in the water, and watch it go!
A balloon-powered boat is a fun way for children to learn about the mechanics of locomotion. It is functionally similar to a jet boat, but instead of water, the toy boat uses air as a source of power for propelling itself. An infinitely renewable resource, as long as you have breath to blow up a balloon!
The balloon-powered boat performs well in baths and swimming pools! Take the balloon off, and it is sturdy classic toy boat that can last for years, accompanying children on adventures across puddles and the exploration of ponds.
Over time, water damages exposed wood, which is why we choose to cover our wooden bath toys with several layers of marine varnish. If, for any reason, you’d like to have the boat unfinished, we offer this option at a discounted price.
