To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pool toys can often become "one-hit wonders" with easily distracted and short-term interested children. This very well-made toy is constructed with durable plastic and some smart design features. Most importantly, it works! Often times the buyer is "stuck" with string-pulled toys that begins its pool life spinning its propeller for a short while, then the shaft rusts out or the propeller chips/breaks from child's play. THIS ONE floats above those pikers, its clear bubble hatch intact, the smooth prop spinning away and the string pull steadfast and attached to its robust ring. While the cost might seem a little above average, this little sub may spend this winter- not in dry dock- but instead patrolling the waters of the bathtub until next summer's commute to the ongoing adventures of the outdoor pool for Season Two.

Love Skip Hop Zoo - this has proved very popular with 14 month old twins and we've had no problems with strings sticking - has survived a fair amount of crashing about and is still in demand (the bee by the same company is also popular with the little guys!).
In the town where I was born Lived a man who sailed to sea And he told us of his life In the land of submarines So we sailed up to the sun 'Til we found a sea of green And we lived beneath the waves In our yellow submarine
My son loves this, completely safe and fun. It doesn’t go very well in the water, seems to be struggling a little compared to other pull and go bath toys. Great nevertheless, no complaints from a 17mth old boy who loves monkeys!
Bought this for my 11 month old daughter for Christmas, she loves it. The bright colours and the fact that it moves on its own make it particularly fascinating for her.
The string is quite difficult to pull, so definitely not something that she'll be able to do for a while and it doesn't move particularly quickly but trundles a long nicely and showers water when lifted from the bath.
