Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ambi Toys Fishing Boat (Baby Product)
We don't save this toy just for bath time; it's just as popular in the sink or the paddling pool. The boat is chunky and well-made (good quality plastic, if that makes sense) and the design means it's easy to clean. The wheel doubles up as a lifebelt and the fishing rods are masts for the boat. The yellow hatch is big enough to store either the lifeboat or the fish and the hull of the boat will easily store the fishing rods and whatever loose bits aren't in the hatch on deck. We rescue the fisherman when he falls into the water and we play the fishing game, sometimes without cheating!
What is refreshing about this toy is that we haven't found any design problems that lead to frustration and a loss of interest. The strings on the rods are the right length, there are plenty of fish (9, I think) but not too many that boredom sets in. The blue cab tilts slightly so the wheel can be removed and replaced easily. Catching the fish is challenging, but not impossible, and the game is good for counting and colour sorting.
I have been disappointed with bath toys in the past (bulky, expensive, limited ways to play with them) but this has been one of our best purchases. The retro primary colours are fab and even appeal to my very girly daughter who couldn't wait to get in the bath when she saw this toy. A super present for a child 3+.
