Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship

By Kelsey

5 from 1 review(s)

Fisher-Price has this great set out right now on their Imaginext line. It is pirate themed and ferocious looking. I have reviewed several pieces of this collectable set but I was most excited about getting to play with the Shark Bite Pirate Ship. As the largest part of this collection, it has many, many features including a moveable anchor and storage compartments in the ship’s hull.

Unboxing the Shark Bite Pirate Ship was fairly easy. The ship itself is secured into the package via 3 small plastic twist clips and approximately 3 or 4 zip ties located at the mast, back ship railing and the steering wheel. You will need some scissors for these zip ties but once they are clipped, the main Shark Bite Pirate Ship is easily removed from the package. Included in the set are two pirates, a man and a shark pirate, two swords, four cannon balls, buried treasure, telescope, and two large cannon balls for the main cannon on the ship. All of these accessory pieces are secured in blister style plastic packaging. Once you work a finger nail or your scissors behind the plastic, everything easily comes out and is ready to play. imaginext pirate ship unboxing

The Playtime Experience

Playing with the Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship was a lot of fun, I actually felt like it took me a while to run out of new "finds" on the actual ship. There is anything you can imagine on this pirate ship. There are 3 power pads on the ship itself that all trigger a different and unique action within this ship. One power pad, near the ship's wheel cases doors to open and small cannons to be launched from the side. The other two launch the ship's large cannon and open the Shark Bite Pirate Ships mouth. The Shark Bite Pirate Ship's mouth opens and pulls items into the ship's storage compartment within the hull, which can be access via a sliding panel on the ship's deck. And let's not forget the walking plank and wheels on the bottom of the Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship which make its fins move back and forth. imaginext shark bite pirate ship side view

Things I Liked

I like the Fisher-Price Shark Bite Pirate Ship a lot. I love that when playing with this ship there is almost an unlimited amount of things do to and discover. I can see hours of imagination play in just this toy alone. All the pieces move very well and make the Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship loads of creative and swashbuckling fun. Additionally, the price really cannot be beat. The Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship is a rather inexpensive purchase and the other parts of this set are also well priced. As a mom, I can't dislike a toy (or a set for that matter!) that promises hours of entertainment without breaking the bank!

Things I Didn’t Like

As hard as I try, I really can't find anything to dislike about this toy. It is a great toy with lots of fun and the ability to keep the additional accessory pieces stored right inside the ship's many compartments. I guess the only recommendation I would have for Fisher-Price with most of their Imaginext sets is this: Although the power pads and figurines are designed to go together, they often don't work very well. A better system for keeping the figurines in an upright position on the power pad would be desirable.

Appropriate Ages

The Shark Bite Pirate Ship is marketed for ages 3-8. As a mom, I definitely would not recommend this toy for children younger than 3 since the accessory pieces do pose a big choking hazard. I think that 8 years old may be playing it safe in terms of maximum age as I could easily see children as old as 10 finding entertainment value in this to

Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship: Worth it?

My overall assessment of the Fisher-Price Imaginext Shark Bite Pirate Ship is a huge thumbs up. I love this toy and I think that it provides great entertainment and a great platform for hours of imaginative play. The price is more than reasonable for the entertainment value in this toy. I think that the other components of this set pair extremely well with this toy and only add to the fun and re-play value. I would not hesitate to buy it again and continue to pick up pieces of this entire Imaginext set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz7rMwTAUqk
