Papafoxtrot's handcrafted wooden boats made their debut in August 2011, and are so well designed that they look more like accent pieces than toys. Painted in modern, cheerful colors, they have easy-to-assemble parts that will keep kids captivated for hours. The company models their boats after three real seafaring marvels: the Emma Maersk, the TI Asia, and the Arctic Princess. The Emma Maersk is the longest container ship in the world (400 meters!), and carries more than 11,000 containers from China to Europe every seven weeks. The TI Asia carries more than 3 million barrels of oil, and the Arctic Princess travels with enough liquefied natural gas to power 45,000 homes for a year. Clearly, Papafoxtrot isn't playing around when it comes to making unsinkable ships.
