Are cargo ships going to be the next trains? Unlikely, but then again you wouldn't think kids would enjoy playing garbage man so much either. Their names may not be as familiar as the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, but we can't help but be curious about these wooden replicas of Emma Maersk, Arctic Princess and TI Asia, three of the world's largest cargo ships.

They're the idea of London studio Postlerferguson which is developing them into toys under the brand Papa Foxtrot. Instead of looking to the past for inspiration they look to the future: "We are planning to take today's most fascinating and amazing technological achievements, like submarines, satellites, windmills, oilrigs amongst others and make them part of a growing collection of wooden toys which we will produce in small batches (for now)."
