What is the New Classic Toys Fish Game?

The fishing game from New Classic Toys is a wooden fence consisting of 4 sturdy pieces that can slide into each other. This is the "sea".

Place 10 objects in the sea. These are different fish, a starfish, turtle, whale, conch, crab, and even a treasure chest!

These objects each have a metal circle in the middle so you can pick them up with it magnetic end of the fishing rod.

What makes the New Classic Toys Fish Game so much fun?

The game is made of really sturdy wood. New Classic Toys is a brand that we have often reviewed for their quality.

This also means that the fish can participate well in other pretend play.

They have done so many times before

  • in a sensory tank as an underwater world
  • as a filler when playing with boats
  • while baking food in the play kitchen (ah, sorry little fish!)

Because of their flat shape, they can participate well. With many plastic fishing games that is not possible.

The game itself is also a lot of fun to play, although a bit basic. It is fishing with a fishing rod to catch the fish.

Due to the build quality and the strong magnet, this can be done easily without frustration. Other than that, it's just a game like you do with a lot of the like toys can do.

There are no assignments or anything like that. But that doesn't mean you can't come up with something to make it more educational.

You can count how many you have already caught, and count how many fish there are.

Because they are so many different figures you can also say which one they have to catch now. This way they learn the names of different sea animals and how to recognize them.

What are the disadvantages of the game?

The game is quite pricey because it is such a sturdy wood. Also because the sea is such large pieces.

You could say that wasn't really necessary. The sea doesn't add much in the end and could have just been put in the box like some cheaper fishing games do.

But it is a very nice set.

Conclusion

The fishing game from New Classic Toys is a great set that will last a long time due to its build quality. It's fun to do and the pieces are sturdy enough to use in many games.
