Nuby Mommy Blogger- Splash n’ Catch™ Bathtime Fishing Set

Posted by Heather at Friday, July 12, 2013

Due to all of the rain and storms that we've been having lately, it's been a little over a week since we've been to our neighborhood pool. To Lil' Miss, that seems like FOREVER! So, when we saw a hint of blue skies, this afternoon, we took our chances and headed to the pool. 

Lil' Miss brought along the Nuby Splash n’ Catch™ Bathtime Fishing Set to try out. She really liked paddling around to catch the four colorful shapes. Hubby and I would throw each of  the shapes away from Lil' Miss, in order to get her to "swim" to them. This way, she could practice her kicking, paddling and bubbles (that she's been learning at swim lessons, this summer) and it didn't even feel like she was "practicing" (WIN!).

Here's what we liked:
-I like that the net and four shapes float. In a pool setting, with a child that is just learning to swim, I don't need anything that sinks. Of course, this probably is a non-issue in a regular bathroom setting.
-Just like the site promised, this toy does promote hand/eye coordination. Lil' Miss would have to judge when to scoop her net, in order to catch the shapes. Also, it taught her to keep the net upright in order to not loose any shapes that she had already caught, while trying to get more shapes.

Here's what could be improved:
-The only thing that I didn't like about this toy is that the shapes are supposed to "link" but because of their thick plastic (which is good for little hands to grip and see in the water), they are hard to link together.

Here's what the Nuby site had to say about the Nuby Splash n’ Catch™ Bathtime Fishing Set:

  • For 18+ months
  • 4 colorful characters to catch in the net
  • Helps develop hand-eye coordination
  • Characters can be linked together
  • Great for bath time or the pool
