Pepper and the Neverland Pirates

Pepper sounds like the perfect name for a pirate, doesn’t it?  I have to admit that my daughter’s obsession with the TV show Jake and the Neverland Pirates has rubbed off on me.  Even at work, I find myself humming the theme song to myself.  Didn’t the seven dwarves say that you should whistle while you work?

This penchant for pirates has prompted me to look around for pirate ship playsets.  I’m amazed at how awesome they look and how functional they are as well.

I’ve found one which I especially fancy.  It’s an outdoor wooden boat playset.  It’s made of high-grade wood with smooth surfaces and rounded corners, so I wouldn’t have to worry about my kid getting splinters.  What I love most about it is it has a picnic table inside!  My kid can have a picnic there with her friends, or just do some artwork to her heart’s content.

If you have a big enough backyard, you might want to consider getting one too.  I’m thinking of setting one up over at my dad’s old house.  There’s so much unused space to work with, and a pirate playset will definitely look good there.

Yo ho, maties!  I’m going to get my cousins to chip in and get ourselves a pirate ship for the backyard.  Now, if I could just get this eye patch out of the way…
