This Rubber Band Powered Boat is a wonderfully fun and educational toy that is brilliant at bath time or in the pool.

This little boats hull is made from a single piece of varnished wood with a paddle wheel at its centre. You wind the wheel which is attached with a rubber band until it is tight, then lower it into the water and let the wheel go. The little boat shoots off across the water.

For more than 100 years miniature ocean liners, paddle steamers and battleships captured the imagination of generations of children, creating a sense of adventure and excitement. Our Toy Boats range is inspired by a century of maritime play.


There is nothing—absolutely nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Kenneth Grahame
