One of the toys I recently ordered was this Jeronimo – Go fishing game.
At R149 from Takealot I was rather hesitant at the actual size, quality and whether it would deliver all the flashing lights it’s review said it would.
As soon as I opened the box any doubts I may have had were gone in a flash …
Hamish loves it!
You get the scenic stickers to paste on to the bottom of the water pond. These just peel and stick and are obviously waterproof.
The game is sturdy and stable enough for indoor or outdoor play.
You will need to supply the batteries required though, but they are simple to insert.
The game is large enough for him to play with alone or as a two player game to see who can catch the most.
This would also make s great travel game as you don’t need the water to play, you can still catch the animals just from the pond.
There are 2 plastic scoops, one with holes like a sieve,which he can use to catch the fish or for water play.
Also there are 2 little fishing rods to help catch the little plastic ducks and fish. These store neatly onto the sides of the pond.
The hooks on the animal heads are large and Hamish found it easy to hook them onto the rods.
A great game for developing fine motor skills, concentration and hand eye co-ordination.
There are 6 little ducks and fish, 3 of each, and we’ve been counting them, grouping them and they can also be used in the bath.
The pond itself has flashing lights, 6 songs and vibrates slightly to move the water inside. This helps the ducks and fish to move around and you to adjust the ability level of play for the child who is catching the toy.
The tree acts as a mini waterfall and kids can pour water in the top and watch how it tuns down the sides.
