Ahoy Mateys! Jake and his crew of swashbuckling pirates were among the first characters to capture my little boy’s interest.
Mama even made him a Jake and the Never Land Pirates costume to fully inhabit his favorite friendly pirate.
Given his interest, we are thrilled to work with our friends at Disney Junior to help spread the word about their upcoming Disney Junior Family Night Special Event! Jake and the Never Land Pirates Battle for the Book will premiere on the Disney Channel this Sunday, October 26th, at 6pm EST.
To stir up excitement for special family TV night, Disney Junior surprised our little guy with a fun creative task of building an epic adventure with an amazing Jake and the Never Land Pirates LEGO® DUPLO® set.
Our friendly pirate has been known to disassemble his big sister’s LEGO® Friends sets in a hot minute and express frustration when attempting to rebuild. That’s why age-appropriate LEGO® DUPLO® sets are perfect for my pre-schooler. The chunky pieces are easy for his four-year-old hands to manipulate and his confidence soars when following the enclosed directions with my guidance.
We had a really special time building and telling stories together.
Jake’s Pirate ship has since been on daily living room adventures to save Never Land. And guess what? It even has a working cannon (AKA little boy’s dream!).
Disney Junior is encouraging all kids to join in Jake’s Epic Battle Build by using their LEGO® DUPLO® sets to story-tell and create Jake and the Never Land Pirate adventures. Parents – simply share an image of your child’s LEGO® DUPLO® creations and story on facebook to enter to win exciting prizes in the Epic Battle Build Sweepstakes including an Ultimate LEGO® DUPLO® Prize Pack.
Yo ho ho Mateys!
