On the downside, it's kind of creepy at times, precisely because of how realistic it is. Also it has a very strong smell of plastic when you pull it out of its packaging. Other than that, it's a great toy for a pool or a large tub (it may need more room than your typical pool to swim, as most fish would). :)
Our experience with Swimway's Rainbow Reef Pool/Pond Fish
Once we got the fish home, my daughter couldn't wait to get started and honestly I couldn't either. After opening it up and installing the batteries, we headed straight to the pool. As soon the fish was placed in water, the back fin started flapping furiously and it headed straight toward the middle of the pool. My daughter then started clapping her hands in delight and saying, " He is alive Mom!" For some reason then, the fish kind of circled and went to bottom of the pool and hung out there for a while. It was still going non stop but he just didn't want to come back to the surface and swim (which he is supposed to do). Finally I swam under and brought him back to the shallow end, but he was not easy to catch! This little fish has a mind of his own and kept swimming away. I was beginning to get discouraged because my 4 year old cannot quite swim yet and I wanted the fish to stay near the surface so she could play with him better.
Once I retrieved it however, I brought it back and it decided to behave. It swam around on the surface for the most part, only occasionally taking the deep plunge.Read more ›
So, I returned both fish to the store and bought the "Finding Nemo: Disney Swimming Dory" and "Finding Nemo: Disney Swimming Nemo" instead. I recommend them highly; the battery compartment is sealed and well-designed, the fish are very cute, and they swim even faster than the Rainbow Reef fish! A real hit at the pool!

I would not recommend this toy. The battery compartment leaked and the toy broke. It was completely useless after this. I would not waste your money on this. Read morePublished on September 24, 2011 by Casey
This fish is very cool. It would work best in a regular backyard swimming pool rather than a kids wading pool (which is what we bought it for) because it works best in deeper water... Read morePublished on July 9, 2011 by Irishlawlass

On both toys (the small fish and this one) you will have to water-proof the battery compartment well if you want to enjoy any life out of this product. Read morePublished on July 30, 2007 by Macro101
