Not air tight
on October 27, 2013
The first time we used this in the tub, it filled with water. I'm talking about the space between the blue and yellow piece - not the deck of the boat. I have tried for a month to pry those pieces apart to get the water out, and I can't. It has been my nightly frustration every night as I give my daughter a bath. I have no idea why I tried so long. But filled with water, it bobbles in a lopsided kind of way and is not functional.
Really annoying. My daughter would have liked it otherwise I think, because she tries to put the man on the boat, but it's lopsided and won't float now. And really, I don't know what might be growing in the water that's in the boat. Because the water in that boat was also the dirty water from a sticky/poopy toddler's bath. Probably a good thing that I can't open it, come to think of it.
It would have been a good toy if not for that. Nothing spectacular, but ok. It's hard to find toys that are appropriate for the 1-2 age range. They're not ready for the full on imagination toys yet, but a little past the point of cups/chew toys.
Anyway, I'm disappointed, obviously. I'll hold on to the boat for another week or so if Fisher Price wants to contact me. If they really want, I'll seal it in a zippered bag and mail it back so they can look into how it filled with water.
