Product Review:

I really like this product. Tricky Fish (which comes in colors blue or green) is great for further helping to develop a child’s fine motor skills, not to mention hand-eye coordination, attention to task – and patience! The Tricky Fish has two sides for double the practice – and double the fun!

Just as the product description states, there are two fun sides to the Tricky Fish. On the one side you can guide and manipulate the ball through the path that is covered by clear acrylic. Flip it over and to make it even more challenging! Here you would guide and manipulate the ball along the open path (which is not covered by the acrylic, but rather it’s open). I have to say, while I was able to easily able to manipulate the ball through the path that was covered by the acrylic, I had a much more difficult time successfully guiding the ball on the flip side that was not covered, making it much more challenging! The cool thing about this product is that once your child (or you) successfully guides the ball from beginning to end on the one side (covered, which is more novice in my opinion), your child (or you) can then graduate to the side that is even more challenging (the side that is uncovered).

So if you’re looking for a fun activity for your child (and, yes, Perhaps even yourself), look no further than the Tricky Fish. While it can prove to be most challenging, it is also proven to be fun! And in this age of technology where kids are tempted and inundated with Ipods, tablets, computers and phones, how cool is it that there is another option out there that doesn’t involve a screen?!
