PowerUp Turns Paper Boats into Motor Boats

 |  |  |  |  |  December 18, 2013


Paper boats are fun craft projects for kids. And not just kids who lived in the 1800s either. I’m sure some kids and adults still make paper boats and set them in the water, watching the wind move them along. Well, now the PowerUp Boat updates things a bit.

The PowerUp Boat Motorized Paper Boat Kit is for modern kids who still like to play with toys in the tub. Just fold the boat, attach the motor, and let it cruise across the surface of the water. The paper is waterproof and the little flag and anchor make it look more authentic. Too bad the motor isn’t electric – it’s the wind-up type, so it will only give you about 10 seconds of cruising at a time. On the other hand, you’ll never run out of battery.

This is a cool toy at just $12(USD) from ThinkGeek. What’s old is new and fun again as well. Time to play pirates on the high sudsy seas. Ahoy mateys!
