Q: How is counting used

submitted by Kattie - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi there! You can count all the fish pieces, or just add up the fish pieces you catch. The colorful fish are numbered so you can sort the fish into groups ( even and odd numbers). All of which are in our "Discover countless ways to play" included with the game. Don't hesitate to call us at 800-284-3948 if you have any other questions!

This toy was terrible for our family. It can be pretty dangerous if you’re not keeping close eye on them. The pole isn’t Sharp and long to fall on

This is a cute game but could be better. For one thing, the bad to hold all the pieces isn’t really long enough for the fishing poles and the Velcro doesn’t really work. As a parent, these factors are annoying.

I bought this for my nephew’s 4th birthday. I thought it might get pushed aside for the plethora of other way cooler toys he got but he was stoked on this fishing set. He still plays with it almost a year later. Great quality and winning gift.

Great Toy, Needs Longer String

OrganicMama - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
As others have mentioned, the string is way too short, so we cut it and tied another string onto it to make it longer and it works well. If they could just make the string longer, it would be perfect! It’s so much fun! He loves playing with it. And I love that it also has a learning/teaching element to it as well.

My 15 month old enjoyed this gift so much! He did manage to break the poles, one he broke in half& the other only broke the rod. BUT DEFINITELY will be buying again! It took him 4 months to break so I think that's pretty durable for him. He absolutely loves it, he doesn't play the game but he loves catching the fish! Thank y'all so much for making an amazing toy! My son is just a wild child.

Bought this for my sons birthday. We love Melissa and Doug usually but within the first day or 2 one of the rods came apart. I happened to buy it in the store instead of online so I can’t easily exchange it because the store is almost an hr away. Only Got 2 stars because my son loves it.

My niece loved this, and so did her parents. There are many skills that can be strengthened by playing this 1 game: counting, letter and number recognition, turn taking, and fine motor. So nice that it is made with wood and not plastic. I always get children's presents from this company. They are the best!
