I bought this for my 9 month old son so he could pound the balls and learn to aim with the hammer - at first he just loved to carry around the hammer! Now he's 14 months old and he is great at hitting the balls with the hammer, but the hammer doesn't stand up well to this - the wood is chipping on the edges and it won't be long before I have to make it "disappear" for his safety (splinters). The wooden balls, however, are superb. The paint hasn't chipped at all, and he loves to carry them around and throw them to watch them roll. Overall it's a good toy, though the hammer won't last long, we've gotten lots of use from it.
My 2.5yr old son loves this toy! First of all, the packaging is so cute. Everything fits and is stored in a sturdy tackle box that my son loves carrying around the house. The fishing vest that comes with the toy is well-made and has a lot of pockets to hold the play worms and other little things my son likes to carry around with him (toy cars, tools, rocks, etc). All three sizes of fish are sturdy and have strong magnets inside them, so it really stays held onto the fishing line when "caught". The fish can even be put in water to catch and it works great. We played with it in the bathtub the other night and my son was thrilled! Not only is it a great pretend/role playing toy, but we've also been playing games with it to teach him about sizes (small, medium, large) using the different sized fish. Highly recommend!
Both my 2 year old and 7 year old girls enjoy using this toy. You have dress-up and fishing all in one. The vest seems to be their favorite part. We use the fish in the tub with the little one and she could stay in there hours if I let her.
We got this as a gift for a birthday because my friend's son loves Superman. After he opened all his presents, he begged to play with this on immediately. The kids ended up playing with this toy the rest of the party. It held up great and was easy to get going! It was a big hit!
