Love this game versus the game that uses magnets in the pole and fish. Very sturdy
I have had many different versions of this game from different companies but this is my favorite. All of my kids, ages 16, 12, 9 and now 2 have had this game and loved it. Somewhere between number 3 son and our daughter being born we lost or sent this game off to the thrift store.
This version however is my favorite of all of them. All the other versions used magnets in the fish and in the fishing pole. In the previous games we owned the fishing pole was a piece of plastic with a magnet on the end. This version the pole is a 3 pieces of plastic and the end looks like a shuttle cock from badminton that grabs onto the teeth of the fish.
This game is easy enough that my 2 year old daughter doesn't get frustrated trying to play and I have found that even my 16, 12, and 9 year old children love to play it with her.
You must purchase one c battery to make the game operate. I've had this game a few months and haven't changed the battery at all.
This game comes with 2 yellow poles and 2 red poles.
Also, the fish have had many a bath with our daughter and the fishing poles have come into the bath tub too. The eyes are still on the fish and the poles haven't broken.
In my pictures I took a comparison picture of a pole from the travel version of this game. You can see the differences.
I was pleasantly surprised with how sturdy this game is and I'd highly recommend it over the other name brand one's out there.
I purchased this game at full price and am providing this review for informational purposes only. Thank you!

Definitely a Throwback Tuesday.
It took me a day or two to find this game. I had this exact same fishing game when I was younger and I loved it. My grandmother still has it but it missing a few pieces and my daughter likes playing with it. So I thought that I should order her one for Christmas for our house as well. This arrived on time and in perfect condition. Seeing this game takes me back to when I was my daughter's age and I am so happy that they still make/sell this game. We are looking forward to seeing my daughter's face light up on Christmas. Thank you.

This is my unforgettable childhood memory game. Can't believe they still have it nowadays. Order it for my baby. She is still too little for it but me and my husband had so much fun! lol. What I don't like about it is it takes a C battery. I have tons of AA or AAA. Anyway, it's a good toy to have.

Classic fun and great price!
I couldn't believe this game is so cheap. My toddler loves trying. I bring it to a nursery where I work and all the kids gather round. It's money well spent, in my opinion! Practice fine motor skills, sharing, waiting patiently, etc.! It can even take me a few minutes to snag one. Fun. :) Classic!

Awesome...how could you not want this game?
Classic game. Got for my two girls to help develop hand eye coordination and pattern recognition.
After I opened the game, I threw the box out the day before recycling came. I was so happy to have this game, I put it on top of the piano. The next day, after my wife, kids, and myself played, she asked where the box was. I said I threw it away. She asked why. I thought for a long time. I said I thought the girls would love the game so much that we would never have to put it away.
Can you send me a new box? Thanks.

I used to love playing the fishing game when I was a kid. The nice thing about this version is that they got rid of the magnets. The ends of the fishing poles snag on the fish teeth when they bite down. My 5 year old nephew had no problem playing this game and his 2-1/2 year old sister was able to catch a few herself (with adult supervision).

It keeps breaking :(
My kids adore this game! They received it for Christmas, and about two weeks later it quit working. It just wouldn't turn on anymore. It was an inexpensive toy so I ordered another one. The second one lasted a month before we had the same problem. One day it just would not turn on, and the day it broke was one day past the return or refund date!

Developed hand eye coordination. Not as easy as it looks bcz it moves! ;)
They should include the battery though. We have to unnecessary buy pack of 2 for a C-battery which may not be useful at many places.
So the toy is ultimately a bit costly bcz add cost of pack of 2 C-battery.

Fun and Useful
Great game for price. My 3 year old can't get enough of it. Hardest part is keeping all the fish and hooks in box after play and not around house. They break if stepped on. Love that he's getting fine motor skill work and eye-hand coordination. Also, he loves to play with someone so encourages social skills.

Most successful gift given @ Christmas! Went to a nephew who had two brothers, one younger and one older. The youngest is 3. They are STILL PLAYING. It has run the test of quality by stand up to the boys use. I am very pleased to have given this gift. The 3 year old studied his brothers and the game for a while but once he had it, he played his share!
