  • Durability:

Pros:Extra large,, tons of room!

Cons:Grass underneath the boat does not fair well.

The Bottom Line: Toy holds up well. Tons of room for tons of kids.


The Arrival


Tuggy arrived at our home in the evening hours. He was a bit dirty, sandy and had leaves all over, so he needed a dishsoap and bleach job. While the kiddies played outside, I started to clean him up. In about half an hour, he was clean, ready to dry. He cleaned up and to my surprise his blue color was not faded much.

Now we got Tuggy as a freebie, and with that came the clean up. Not sure how old he is, but his blue base, tan top, and the yellow steering wheel are still nice and bright. I check over the body no cracks or breaks in the plastic which is another plus for Step 2 products.

The Boat


We use him as a pool, but he can also be a sandbox. The tugboat is fairly large, about 4 X 4. The features are, a drain plug (pool option) lid with rope handle (for the sandbox option) and yellow wheel (which spins, and makes a "clicking" noise). The inside is large enough to fit three children with ease and room to move.

Our children from the toddler to the eight year old like him as a pool. But even when there is no water, still climb and play inside. They spend hours running back from their playground to hopping inside to drive the boat.

The only downside I have noted is that any grass under the boat does not fair well.

Final Vote


All three love it, got it for free, so I have to say it is a hit with us and the kids!
