Message And Boat In A Bottle Sets

$13.00

Bottles of Fun

Drift back to simpler times, when grown men thought the world was flat and frightening creatures of the deep were nothing compared to the threat of the siren's song. OK, these kits won't take you that far back, but at least back to a time when building a boat in a bottle was a respected talent, and a message in a bottle could save your life. Nestled inside each of the colorfully illustrated gift boxes is everything you need to send an S.O.S. to the world (bottle, cork, note, sealing wax and candle) or master the impossibility of coercing a ship through a bottle's neck (bottle, model ship, detailed directions). Imported. Made in China. Sold separately.

100% recycled paper label stock, glass, wood

The packaging is GREAT -- it added a lot to the general appeal of the item. It caught my eye and was nostalgic, artsy, very appealing. The purpose of the item is pretty straightforward, a message in a bottle -- it was just that. I got one for both my kids -- my daughter is going to Kenya this summer and I thought this might be fun for her to send while over there. All in all, the idea of a "message in a bottle" just captures the imagination and is fun -- even my son liked the idea of it!

The pieces inside are so tiny, that even my 12-yr old son, who has small hands, became quickly frustrated. To assemble correctly, the kit would require modeler's wood glue, (not included). If your child has an excess of patience and time, this might be the gift for them.

      Comments about Message And Boat In A Bottle Sets:

      I bought this for an 8-year-old boy. I know most would think a message-in-a-bottle set is self-explanatory, but it wasn't for him. There were no instructions or explanations included, and he broke the cork before he realized what it was supposed to be used for. A lovely gift, but just make sure you're around when a kid opens it.

      It's a small boat

      Comments about Message And Boat In A Bottle Sets:

      I bought this as a gift and for some reason expected it to be bigger (it's in a box that is maybe 3-4" square). I guess if you're building a boat in a bottle, the smaller the cooler.

                I used the bottle to hold a message to my husband. He thought it was very sweet and now we will use it to pass notes between the two of us as a tradition.

                    I bought this as gifts for children. I think it will actively stimulate their imagination and if the bottle is returned will be a story to tell for generations.
