Generally frowned upon as oceanic polluters, mega-tankers usually possess very few redeeming qualities. Not so for the wooden replica toy tankers designed by Papa Foxtrot. Sleek and simple, the ships break apart into smaller puzzle-like pieces that are either rendered in various pleasing shades of blue or finished with a clear coat.
Papa Foxtrot is a new venture into the toy world from Postlerferguson, a London-based design studio. They crafted replicas of the three largest cargo ships in the world christened the Arctic Princess, the Emma Maersk and the TI Aisia. For added play value, the ships’ cargo can be removed to load and unload the ships. The toys should be hitting retail shelves soon.
