Another pirate ship pool toy? Count us in!

It comes with a squirt gun and a catapult. Enough said.

Summer's coming, which means that this year's arsenal of outdoors-oriented kiddie toys is already being rolled out. And, as we've already seen, pirate-themed pool toys are going to be huge this year. (At the root of this trend , naturally, is the impending final installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, as well as Steve Jobs' anti-DRM vendetta--a high point for the other kind of pirate.) The latest in pirate fun is the Jolly Roger PT400, an inflatable pirate ship that comes with a squirt gun and two "cannonballs" to go in its built-in catapult.

I never knew pirate ships had catapults on them, but hey, I suppose it just makes it cooler. You've got to win those pirates vs. ninjas battles somehow. This floating fortress will cost you $37.95.

There is, however, a 135-pound weight limit. Maybe they could make a grown-up version too?
