Pressman Let's Go Fishin' Game

We bought our kids a Pressman Let's Go Fishin' game to play and share. Our two children, who will be playing the game are 3 and 2. This game provides hours of fun! This is my review of the game.

If you are looking for an inexpensive toy or game for your young children, this game is perfect! Both boys and girls will love to play this game. It's great for families and parents who want to play with their kids.

Did you know that this game first came out in 1979? I remember playing it as a kid. It's a classic that you'll want to share with your kids too! The suggested age range is four years of age and up. The average play time is about ten minutes.

About the Game

This cute kids game has an electronic turntable which is filled with twenty one plastic fish. The fish come in multiple colors, including: yellow, orange, red, green, & blue.

As the table rotates in a circle, the fish raise and lower, opening and closing their mouths.

Four fishing poles are included with the game. Players use the fishing poles to attempt catching fish. When the fish open their mouth, the player inserts the lure and when the fish closes its mouth the player pulls the fish up out of the rack.

Each player keeps the fish he or she caught. When all of the fish are gone, the player who has caught the most fish wins the game.

Review of the Game

The turntable does rotate pretty quickly. Even for me, it was difficult at first to catch a fish. However, my three year old caught on very quickly and started catching fish on his own. He yelled, "I got one" with a smile.

According to the video above, it seems like the fish in the middle are the easiest to catch. There are four fishing poles, so up to four people can play the game at one time. You can make the game more interesting for older kids by asking them only to catch one certain color of fish.

This game can keep your kids entertained for hours. My son and daughter have been playing with it for two straight hours already. This is a cool game for parents to play with their young kids. The game takes one C battery, which is not included.

The game develops skills like: focus, competition, accuracy, and reaction. Let me also point out that this game is durable. My son thought he broke one of the fish. The mouth pops off from the body, but it pops right back on with two little sturdy notches.

If you are shopping for a girl, Hello Kitty has a very cute pink version of the game called, "Hello Kitty Let's Pick Flowers Game". I will include an Amazon link at the bottom of this article. You can also CLICK HERE to order.

Where to Buy Kids Games?

We bought our Let's Go Fishin' Game at WalMart for about $11. This was one of the cheapest kids games available in the store. Most other games ran $15 to $19 & up. So, I thought this was a good price for a game my youngsters could play.

      Iris Draak, thank you for your comments. My little guy threw a few of the fish into his uncle's turtle tank and they sank to the bottom. We asked, "Why did you do that". He said the turtle was hungry for fish. LoL Thank you for the game suggestions that you mentioned. I will check those out for my kids.

      I loved that little game. It reminds me of other fun games I like, "Cooties" and that one with the cherries (I can't remember the name of it but it had plastic cherries that nestled in trees). Fun!
