“ Brasnd: Vivid Imaginations / Type: Boats „
My daughter has a number of different Animal Hospital sets which she loves to play with. The one which I am going to review now is the Rescue Boat.
This boat comes in a small rectangular cardboard box which says it is suitable for 3+ and has the Animal Hospital logo in the corner. All these sets follow on from the Animal Hospital television series on the BBC presented by Rolf Harris which ran from 1994 to 2004. In this set you get the rescue boat, a vet, a dog, a baby seal, a box to keep the seal safe in to take to the surgery, a stethoscope, a life jacket, a bucket and sponge and a towel.
My daughter has two separate boats which she got at the same time and this one is the better one of the two as it really floats in the water. The aim is of course to rescue the seal and make it better. The seal which comes with this set is just like a miniature bath toy as it squirts water out too.
This is one of the more simple sets with less contents and smaller in size than a lot of the other sets in the range. I have found that it is more difficult to find somewhere that stocks it now but this must be because it has been around for a while. Amazon currently sell this set for £5.99 which is very good for the enjoyment which my child gets out of it.
The Animal Hospital vets have got a new Rescue Boat that really floats! Help the vet to rescue Sandy the squirting seal, by using the stretcher on board the boat. Once back on shore, the vet can give the animals a quick check up, before taking them to the Animal Hospital.
