Product Description

WordSkipper Product-01Manoeuvre your tugboat around the harbour — along the seaside boardwalk, past the lighthouse, around the island, and into open water — to collect phrase “cargo” and tow it back to your sentence “port”. You will need to be careful, for some of the creatures in the harbour will try to stop you! When you have collected enough phrases to complete your sentences, head to the treasure to win!
