I had a couple of Zebco spincast rods and reels similar to this when I was a kid. They were generally reliable, so I thought one of these would make a good first rod for my 5 year old daughter. But I picked this model up for her last weekend and it just doesn't work. Sometimes it will cast as far as 4 or 5 feet. Most of the time it locks up and does nothing at all, even though I am operating the thing properly.

This reel is unfortunately a completely piece of junk. Literally, you'd be better off tying some line to a flexible stick.

Works wonderfully! Casting is slightly tricky but easy to get used to. It is a pretty fishing pole. I paid extra in shipping to get This one and I am pleased that I did! I don't like fishing, my husband is the fisherman. I bought this pole because my daughter said, "Mommy I want a Pink fishing pole". She and my son both got kids fishing poles. We took them for a spin the first time on fathers day and it was so lovely. I liked the pole so much that I FISHED. This is a big deal for me because I thought I loathed fishing myself. It was fun with Barbie's pole. I wonder if I had had a pink fishing pole when my dad brought me fishing all those years ago if I would now like the sport better myself!?! Happy I got this for our Girl.

We bought this Barbie fishing rod and reel for a 7yr old, who immediately practiced dry casting in the yard and everywhere else. It worked for 2 days before locking up, due to reeling in with the button depressed. The button pops up the silver bell thing, allowing the line to get up under it. If the line gets up under the "bell" (the silver steel thing that pops up when you press the button) and get tangled in there, you're going to need to disassemble it.

The line wraps around the screw inside the bell, and the spring mechanism won't be able to return the "button" to its normal position, and the button won't work right. Basically, if there's enough line up under the "bell" thing, it will require a 5/16 wrench or socket to take of the nut, remove the tangle, and re-assemble. If you're going fishing with this, bring along the appropriate socket or wrench, because you'll probably need it at some point.

The reel works like any other "spincast" type reel - but made with more plastic parts. Here's a vid on how to respool the reel:

[...]

And I almost forgot - there is no manual, and the only instructions is a short paragraph saying "use your thumb to press the button when you cast. Enjoy!" Strangely, it's followed by a series of fishing facts, like what a bobber is. It would have been far more useful to include information such as - when the reel gets stuck (which it will), try unscrewing the nut and disentangling the line.

My daughter really enjoyed this fishing pole. Her first trip her and I each caught a fish and it was easy to teach her the fundamentals being that she is three. Smooth cast adjustable drag and small size make it great for kids

My four year old daughter insisted on a Barbie fishing pole. We used the pole a total of two times. The first use for a half hour in pond. The next day we attempted to use it in a fishing durby. It lasted for about another half hour before casting became impossible. The catch mechanism which reals in the line fails to grab the line. It's a waste of money

This was for our daughter's first fishing adventure. Being a preschooler, she was easily able to cast and drop her line with this product...and caught a fish within the first two minutes. Her excitement made the product worth every cent we paid.

got this for my 5 year old, she loves to fish with her daddy, the blue release button broke in less than 24 hours of her having it, she casted it about 10 times, her heart was broken :( all she wanted was a pink barbie fishing pole, guess you get what you paid for absolute JUNK

My wife and I go fishing regularly, and when my daughter turned 2, we set her up with a nice Diawa Spincast reel and very nice 4 1/2' rod. This outfit works great and will last he for MANY years. But being a girl, she wanted a PINK pole when she turned 4, so we ended up buying her a Barbie pole for her birthday.

I figured this pole would break within a few outings and we would forget about it. This pole actually works better than the Diawa setup she owns.

She was tagging along last week while I was fishing for some bedding bass at a local lake. She got interested and wanted to use her PINK pole. I was reluctant, but we rigged he pole up and she started catching bedding bass like crazy. I was amazed at how well this cheap plastic setup handled those bass. No monsters, but most of the bass was between 2-3 pounds and the little reel handled them with ease.

Over all the best $20 I have spent in a long time.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...
