I bought one for my pirate crazy three year old nephew for Christmas. After opening it and assembling it he exclaimed "two!" And went running from the room. When he returned, much to my sister-in-law's dismay, he brought with him another identical pirate ship. It was then explained to me that I had bought one for my older nephew, 8 years prior, and it had been handed down to my younger nephew. Same classic toy ... Same fantastic play value. When I said that I didn't even recall getting it for Dalton, my sister-in-law said "why would you? It was eight years ago! These things are so well made they last forever. They will each hand theirs down to their own kids!" What a great testament to a well made toy!
