With Christmas 2019 fast approaching (only 341 sleeps), the world-famous Danish toy manufacturer and destroyer-of-unwary-soles, Lego, has introduced the perfect play set for scuba diving enthusiasts.

The new Diving Yacht kit from the Lego City range features a dive boat with a sun deck and removable roof, bow-mounted searchlight, storage space for small dive gear, or for the lego divers to take a surface interval nap. A surface marker buoy with diver down flag provides aid to navigation and diver safety.

The seafloor scenery has a sunken treasure chest complete with seaweed, fish and guardian crab, plus a genuine Lego gem that can be hidden inside. A swordfish (possibly a sawfish hybrid) is also included.

Two Lego mini-figures, one male and one female, complete the ensemble, with masks, fins and tanks, still and video cameras, plus a drinks bottle and watermelon slice.

The diving yacht toy boat measures approximately 8cm in height, 23cm long and 6cm wide, and is suitable for ages five and over, meaning young children, families, middle-aged parents whose kids have flown the nest, and single folks dreaming of their next dive vacation from their office chair.

Lego has previously released a range of ocean-related sets, including a deep-sea submarine and deep-sea scuba scooter. In 2015, a kit celebrating legendary ocean explorer Sylvia Earle was produced. These products have been retired and are no longer available from Lego's online store, however, are still circulating on eBay and Amazon.

To accompany the new Diving Yacht kit, Lego has also introduced a Deep Sea Creatures kit, containing blocks for building a shark, squid, terrifying-looking angler fish and its terrified looking prey, and a very excited crab.

The more that can be done to inspire the younger generation towards ocean awareness (and scuba diving), the better. The Diving Yacht kit is priced at £17.99 in the UK and is available from Lego's online store. The Deep Sea Creatures kit is priced at £12.99 and also available online
