“Toys ‘R’ Us Dinghy” is a 2006 art installation by Michael Johansson featuring a full-size rowboat made to look like a plastic model kit. Michael as created several other works of art that are along the same lines featuring everyday objects.
A boat and related equipment are joined together in a welded metal frame. Everything is painted in a unifying plastic layer to resemble the surface of a model kit. The real boat is transformed into a model of itself, and its original purpose has given way to something else.
