Sure to be a hit, and they won’t even know that it’s a teaching tool! Complete collection features a mini storybook, describing the story of Jesus with his Apostles on the Sea of Galilee, and 15 toy pieces ideal for little hands to play with and learn from. The 14 figures include Jesus with the twelve apostles, plus Mathias who replaced Judas in the book of Acts. The boat measures approximately 12" L by 2" H. The figures range in measurement with the shortest one measuring approximately 2 1/4" H and the tallest one measuring approximately 2 3/4" H.
We had gotten this for our 2 1/2 year old after he enjoyed playing with his Nativity so much during Advent and Christmas. The little Apostles are great- each one has the name written in small print on the back. He likes playing with the set at home and also at Mass. He is learning the names of the Apostles already and he's not even 3 because of this toy! Pros: Educational

Perfect for a 3 year old who loves to play priest.
Great Teaching Tool!

This product arrived on time, in great shape and is very nice. The Apostles and Christ figures all are different and identified with their names engraved discreetly on their backs. This is a wonderful toy which easily and clandestinely converts to a teaching tool for children. Great for homeschooling and grandparents in passing on the faith.
Figures are great... boat is flimsy

My kids loved this set and played with it all day when they first got it. The boat broke within the first hour. Pretty flimsy. Would probably hold up just fine with one careful child... but not several. The apostles are still very cool and sturdy and we use the base of the boat. Best Uses: Preschool play; Cons: Flimsy boat; Pros: Lots of figures

I wish it had names or labels for the apostle names (thought the description said it would).
Just the right size for my grandson.
Like that it has the small story book.
Boat mast a little flimsy, falls off boat easily.

I gave this as a gift and it was well received.
The figurines are really cute and a nice little size.
The mast attaches with a little peg.....not too substantial and it falls off easily. Oh well, the boat is a nice size and stores the characters well.
I may order another one to have on hand as a great gift. Best Uses: Pre schoolers would love; Cons: Mast not attached well; Pros: Good sized boat, Great figurines
