Some bugs, but a decent toy.
January 19, 2016
First of all, my 3 year old LOVES this bath toy! Makes convincing him to take a bath so much easier! He loves the light, he loves the colors, he loves that he can actually catch and reel in the fish. He is a VERY satisfied little boy!
That being said, I am less satisfied. The pole is telescoping. I am not sure why, but it is. So if you reel in too far, the pole starts to collapse in on itself. Just annoying, but not critical to the function. After the first bath with the toy, the little silver eye that keep the line in place on the very end came off. It was dangling down by the bobber. Hubby super glued it back in place and a week later had to super glue the middle one as well.
Two months of pretty regular use and the fish lights are beginning to go out. I've long since thrown the packaging out, so I am not sure if the batteries can be replaced or not. I'll have to dissect a fish I suppose. My son seems to be ok with lightless fish though, so I'm in no hurry.
All in all, it is a $10 toy. It still works even if the bells and whistles aren't all there. To a kid the nit-pick doesn't matter the way it does to an adult. A couple super glue fixes are worth all the happy baths we've gotten with this toy.
