Bumblebee Toys was kind enough to send us a Silk Fishing Pond by Sarah’s Silks to try out. The set includes a small blue playsilk to use as “water”, five wee sea creatures to catch, and two fishing poles. The wooden fishing poles have magnets on the end of their line which you use to catch the sea creatures. The sea critters include three little fish, a seahorse and a starfish. Each has a small metal washer attached to it. A little loop of fabric runs through the washer and it is sewn onto the critter. The magnet on the fishing pole hooks onto the washer and you “catch” a fish. It’s simple but brilliant, and lots of fun. The sea creatures are made of silk. They are bright, colourful, and adorable. Everything in the set is sturdy and well made. I love that it comes with two poles so two kids can play at once.

Overall, I would definitely recommend the Silk Fishing Pond. It’s simple, open-ended, fun, that is great for imaginative play. I think the suggested ages of 3-9 is pretty on target. You can pick this set up from Bumblebee Toys for $29.95. Also Bumblebee Toys still has their Easter promo running, where they are offering a free green playsilk from Sarah’s Silks with any order over $25 (Just mention “green playsilk” when placing your order in the comments field to receive one).
