In a previous blog post, we had ‘Western Adventure’ (Cowboys and Indians).

Today, from the same BJ Toys supplier, is a set that I purchased several years ago, we have ‘Ocean Adventure’.

So far I have failed to create any game that involves warring scuba divers, produced surely as a 1960s spin off from those James Bond movies with underwater battles.

I was attracted by the copy of the Britain’s two man submarine and in another set, the blue speedboat.

Again this is another inexpensive set, no doubt designed  for the beach or bath tub, that is attractive to imaginative children of any age.
