Here's a fun way to catch some fun and fish with the Melissa & Doug Catch & Count Fishing Game. This wooden set comes with 10 magnetic fish that are numbered and patterned, 2 wooden fishing rods and a spinner. Use the spinner to know which fish needs to be caught. You can make the game challenging by asking kids to sort them in order or catch fish in a certain order, the possibilities are endless. While being fun and exciting, the game boosts matching, counting and sorting skills to promote confidence.
We love Melissa & Doug toys, but this purchase was a disappointment. Pictures are misleading like the other reviewer mentioned. My set did not come with the red and white bobbers. The strings on the rod are extremely short. Doesn't even hang over 5inches. My child has to sit down in order to catch the fish with the magnet. Thought it was just a defect and tried to swap it out in store, but all the other ones were the same.
Picture is misleading. First of all, item I got didnt have a white and red bobbers on the rods. Second, string are very short. Disappointment!!! Item looks good on picture ( purchased online) but in reality it is cheap.

My 2 year old sona nd 5 year old daughter love this fishing set. The best part is that you can use the poles to introduce them to magnets and how magnets work and then test them out on metal surfaces around the house. They also love to use the fish in their play kitchen as food so it's a versatile toy.
My 2 year old Grandson received this from his dad as a gift and he played with it for hours. He doesn't quite get the concept of reeling the pole but he loves the catching fish part. We put the fish in a paper bag and he drops his line in, waits until he feels one on his pole then pulls it up with a big smile on this face. We love that it is not electronic and it keeps his attention even with how simple it is. The pole is well made, the fish have good graphics and he loves it. It is not meant to be realistic, it is meant for play by children.
