Product Description

Product Description

Bright, fun and appealing, Tomy's Do Rae Mi Dolphins can make bathtime go with a song. Each dolphin fits into a similarly coloured ring and once afloat a tap on every head sounds a different note. Once the dolphins are clicked together in order (they are numbered one to ten), little hands can play their first scale. Fun and musical, the dolphins also have educational value; as well as introducing children to pitch and scales, matching the dolphins to their rings can aid colour recognition and linking them in order helps counting.

Box Contains

10 x Dolphins
10 x Rings

These toys are still played with by my children, but not really as intended. There are a few problems I found with them--the rings don't clip together very well, and always come lose. Also, the dolphins, if they get water in their whistle-hole, have to be dried before they will whistle. They work by being half-immersed in water, which forces air out through the hold on the top of their heads, which makes them whistle. There are also lots of pieces, so you will need a bag or something to store them in.
That said, they are fun to float in the bath without being attached to the others, and now my children are older and have enough breath to blow properly, they do like making them whistle. This toy doesn't quite do what it claims, but it still is fun, and there's not really anything else like it on the market.

I was compelled, by the incredibly poor design of this toy, to write this review - my first ever. The rings don't stay together, the dolphins don't make their sound consistently, and when they do it's nothing to write home about. It's truly one of the worst designs I've ever come across and I have to wonder if it was ever tested before putting on the market.

My son got this toy as a present and we were both excited to try it as it promised much... however, he rarely asks to have it in the bath as we both found that neither of us could make it work properly and we would both end up getting frustrated by it. It also takes up an inordinate amount of space!

To claim that your child will play their first scale and soon be producing their first symphony gives the impression that these dolphins do actually produce a sound resembling a musical note.

Complete and utter rubbish, they do occasionally produce what can only be described as a wet farting noise but Beethovens fifth it aint.

I can only recommend giving these a wide berth and spending the kids Christmas money elsewhere!

I was dubious after reading these reviews but me and my 21 month old have had great fun playing with these in the bath tonight.

They DO whistle, you just have to bash then quite vigorously on the head. Alternatively my son liked them to jump up and down which has the same effect. you can blow the whistles yourself if you want to make a louder noise.

The rings don't hold together particularly well but who cares, if I wanted to teach my toddler scales and to play tunes then I'd get him a piano not a bath toy. The rings were a great source of fun too, wear them as a hat, play hoopla and try to catch them on his toes, the dolphins can ride around the bath like a train, you can fill the dolphins up with water and tip the water out all over mummy/the bathroom floor!

Am I the only parent here whose toddler hardly uses any toys for the exact purpose they were intended?!

One of the best value-for-money toys on the market and un-arguably one of the mosty endurable. And if you had met my nine-year old son,(a small natural disaster constantly looking for a place to happen!) you would understand the true value of that statement.
I first bought this set for my oldest twins. That was about 11 years ago. We had an older son and daughter, and the twins were followed by another three. All seven of them loved this toy for many years. We have lost some dolphins and some rings over the years,(and I do mean lost, not broken) and now we only have two dolphins and three rings. But they still work.
It is true that the rings don't hold together very well, but this is not really important, they can still be played with floating individually round the bath. We now have a two year old with CP, who loves the sounds and colours, and another young baby, so I will definately be buying another set of dolphins this xmas.

Prepare yourself for huge disappointment. Unless I was just unlucky, these 'whistling' dolphins don't actually whistle. A few weak sounds came out of one or two, the rest I can't get a note from despite bopping them on the head at every conceivable angle in the bath. Ahem, not that it's me playing with them of course...it's my 3 year old twins, but if I can't get a note out of them, there's no way on earth they can.

From a play point of view, my twins don't seem to mind much and are happy just to play with the colourful plastic dolphins.

From a musical point of view though, this rates alongside Victoria Beckham's solo career in terms of anticipation versus outcome. It's an astonishing rip-off. I'm surprised this toy hasn't been found out and redesigned to actually WORK. Shame because the idea was really good.

Like I say, let's be fair, I may have been unlucky and got a faulty item, which unfortunately I can't do anything about because they've been used. Personally I'd say it isn't worth the risk.

There are several flaws to these:
1) Very big, not easy for a toddler to pick up with one hand. The child on the box must be massive as the Dolphins look quite small in comparison! The full set takes up a lot of room in the bath.
2) Ours don't whistle easily - when in their rings in the water they need a good smack to make any noise. Not ideal when your duty as a parent is to teach your child not to be aggressive or hit.
3) The product advertising suggests another game is colour matching/sorting. This can only be done if the dolphins are the same colour as the rings. Only four of the eight dolphins actually have matching rings, the other four colours are either several shades different to the dolphins or another colour altogether. The difference in colour is far, far more drastic than the product images suggest.

Verdict? Waste of money. The little one played with a couple of dolphins for five minutes then went back to his other bath toys.
