It is a simple but hugely enjoyable traditional fishing game for the little ones! You catch the colorful wooden fishes with the swinging magnets.....Try to get the most fish but be careful not to bump into each other and drop them on the way out! Beside, you can play it as domino which is a different game for you to enjoy!

Great little toy - and sturdy too!
What you get: A little tin box that contains 14 fish (each is a different color and/or style) as well as two fishing poles. The fishing poles are pretty short (less than a foot for the stick portion) but they're good for kids anyhow.
The magnets are surprisingly strong and pick up the fish easily. My son (3 years old) also likes to "catch" the tin box it comes in and drag that around the house.
The fish have the magnetic pieces in random places - some in the fish's eyes, some on the center (ie: belly area) - this is a little annoying to me, but not a big deal anyhow. The fish are made of wood and have a picture on them - these are pretty sturdy and well constructed. Let's just say that my 1 year old has been chewing on some of these pieces and none show any wear or tear yet.
The thing that bothers me most about this is that the tin box is just the exact perfect size for all the fish and...
It is a good inexpensive fishing set but lacks the quality of some of the other similar "magnetic fishing toys."
We had purchased a Janod fishing set for our grandson, but, unfortunately, some of his fish were misplaced in a recent move. I was hoping this set would be a good replacement. While the Agooding Fishing Playset does have many of the same features as the Janod Fishing set, the quality is vastly different.
This is especially apparent in the actual fishing poles. The Agooding Fishing Set has very short small fishing poles, while the Janod set has longer sturdier poles, which allow children to stand and "fish".
This is a lovely set, with study wooden fish, brightly colored, and with options to make this easy enough for 3 year olds but challenging -if desired- for older children. The magnets are located at various parts of the fish bodies.
We accidentally found a novel option. Since the box which holds the fish is metal and the magnets will stick to it, we play a game where the trick is to try and catch fish in the box without touching the sides of the box. This takes some more advanced motor skills and works best with older kids.
My only quibble is thst I wish the fishing pole was longer. But the grandkids don't seem to mind.
If your kids are into fishing type games, you might want to do what we did: buy several different types of magnetic puzzles (some have bugs or different sea creatures, for example) and mix the pieces in a large container. The let the kids fish for a piece and place it in the appropriate puzzle.
