When toddlers pretend they step into a whole new world with their imaginations! The Captain Cross pretend foam toy épée is a pirate’s preferred dueling tool. Fencing duels are an ancient tradition that pirates use from time to time to decide who is superior. A talented dueler knows that the quality of the épée is very important. The Captain Cross épée is built with its center of gravity close to the hand, so the weapon holder always has control. This dueling tool also has a pretend ruby-encrusted golden bowl. All Liontouch pretend-play items are made from EVA foam, ensuring play remains safe! EVA foam is very light, waterproof, insulating and shock absorbing. Recommended for ages 3 years+. Pretend-play builds social and emotional roles in life. And, exercising the imagination develops self-confidence, leading to better problem solving in the future. Designed in Denmark, where real Kingdoms still rule.
