This pirate ship was assembled on Christmas Eve, with the children all nestled all snug in their beds, from parts found on eBay or scavenged from the existing Lego stash.
Santa was particularly pleased to have found a lot of swords, pistols, bicorns, tricorns and hooks that converted various landlubber legos to scallywags.
Might have been cheaper to spring for a premade pirate ship, I know.
But the look on their faces Christmas morning? Priceless.
