Christmas ho, Captain! I see the big holiday coming off the starboard bow. No, wait, it’s an iceberg! We are are doomed. Well, Christmas is just around the corner and if you are a spoiled rich kid, here is what will be under the tree. Er, maybe you can put the tree inside of this ship.
This $27,000(USD) Pirate Ship Playhouse from Hammacher Schlemmer is an awesome place for rich kids and their friends to hang out. This 23′ high weather-beaten pirate ship has a cedar and redwood exterior, along with classic pirate decorations. There is a cutlass-bearing skeleton lashed to the bowsprit, a boarded-over cannonball hole, crossed bones that form a window pane, and a crow’s nest with Calico Jack Rackam’s Jolly Roger flag.
The playhouse rests on a hollowed-out five-foot diameter tree trunk that has a ladder inside. You can also enter using the climbing net or the staircase. All interior areas are framed in Douglas fir. No expense (or tree) was spared. If that isn’t enough, the corkscrew tunnel slide extends from the balcony affixed to the stern and a fireman’s pole extends from the bow.
Stupid rich kids have all the fun. Then again, their parents have all the debt, so whatever.
