Review: Sprig Toys Dolphin Explorer Boat

Sprig Toys offers eco-friendly toys made of recycled sprigwood and reclaimed plastic.

The Lil Divas had the opportunity to review the Dolphin Explorer Boat from the fun Adventure Series Toys.


 I knew Sprig toys were eco-friendly and kid powered (no batteries required just lots of imagination & movement from the kids) and as a mom and teacher I value those things but I was also immediately impressed with the toy right down to the minimal packaging. Way to keep it green! I really have a problem with all that excess packaging that comes with so many toys today.

The Dolphin Explorer Set comes with the large Explorer Boat, a smaller rescue boat, a life preserver, a mother & baby dolphin and Captain Owen the Adventurer with his hat and backpack accessories.

 As soon as the package arrived and the Lil Divas spotted the boats & dolphins, they wanted to play! So off we went to enjoy some water play in the bath tub with our Dolphin Explorer Boat.

 The Lil Divas had lots of fun with this toy. It was a change of pace from all their high tech toys and they were happily engaged in imaginative play, making up stories and character roles while enjoying some splashy water fun. Captain Owen doesn't even have a face - so how he looks is all up to your lil adventurer! I love the open ended possibilities these toys offer!

The Lil Divas have been eager to play with the explorer boat every time they take a bath.  There's always a new adventure to be had.  It's one toy I don't mind them wanting to play with over and over again because they aren't wasting any batteries that I have to constantly change. They are working with the pure magic of their imagination and I can tell you we have had some fun and unique adventures along the way.

The explorer boat has worked well in the bathtub and is easy to care for - I just turn it upside down and the water empties out and everything dries looking like new. We are also able to fit all the pieces right into the explorer boat so it doesn't take up much room and storage hasn't been a problem.


Sprig Toys has some wonderful green toys and story blocks available that will fuel your child's imagination and according to the site more toys (and a new girl's line) are coming soon!

The Lil Divas (and their Mom) give Sprig Toys a big thumbs up and we will be monitoring to see what else they come up with because if it's anything like what we have seen and experienced - it's sure to be good!
