Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another timeless classic Purchased for 3 year old grandson after he played with one at Play Museum. Really impressed with workmanship and loved the storage bag that came with it. Very versatile and helps with color recognition, counting and decision making. The set comes with two fishing poles and 10 fish that range in size from large to small so we have taught him that when small fish are caught these are tossed back so that they grow bigger and then be caught again. He then likes to make up stories of what the small fish do to grow bigger. Love listening to the stories that result from this simple act of kindness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, keeps child entertained for about 30 minutes at a time. I bought this for my 17 mos old grandson a week ago. He was very excited when he first got it. His 11 yr old brother seemed to enjoy it a lot more at first. Once he got the hang of it, the younger one loved it. Cons: The plastic fishing bobber is constantly coming apart, which can be frustrating. Luckily, putting the two pieces back together is pretty easy for my 17 mos old grandson. Also, the blue storage bag is a bit flimsy for a rough and tough toddler. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend this toy to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this so much. We love Melissa and Doug toys in my house, and I was so excited to get this game for my daughter during the national pandemic. I thought that it would keep her busy for hours, so I brought it home. It didn't even keep her busy for 10min because despite what it looks like on the box, the "fishing line" is a literal 2in. long. She was just dangling a magnet over a fish and giving me the "are you serious mom?" face. I wanted to like this, so my husband is considering "fixing it", otherwise we'll be returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fishing Poles come untied and can't be retire For such an expensive toy, these are cheaply made. The magnetic fishing poles came untied not long after the purchase and there is no way to simply repair these. I will not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun game This was a gift for a 3 1/2 year old. I like the circle shaped winder for the reel. It fits his hand and nothing sticks out to break. I like the carrying case. This keeps all the pieces together, so he can play without looking for parts. Not only did he play the games suggested, but the game generated a lot of creative independent play as well. The spinner did not spin freely for us, but that didn't matter, since he preferred to place the spinner where he wanted it to land.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed. I thought our little girl would love this but even my 2 year old is bored with the less than 2 inch long line. I understand this is more than just a "fishing" game and helps with colors and counting, but seriously this is not even fishing, it's basically poking the end of the rod onto the fish. Takes no skill whatsoever. I've seen many photos of these Melissa and Dough fishing sets where the line is much, much longer. What happened??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed The concept of it is great, however the string is only about 2 inches long; seems quite useless to have a string that short. I thought it would be a product that would grow with my child but am very disappointed that is not the case. We have many other Melissa and Doug products that are great but this one kind of missed the mark. I watched review videos and noticed the ones from a couple years back did not have this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised After purchasing this product we found that it did not match the pictures on the outside of the box. The string on the fishing poles is only an inch or two long . The string on the so short you can't even turn the wheel one time. Which makes the game no fun because you're basically just poking the fish with the end of the fishing pole. When I contacted Melissa & Doug they said that that is how they make the product now.
