Disclosure: I received a complimentary set of “Terra by Battat – Tropical Fish” through the Amazon Vine Program in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
My kids had the opportunity to participate in a fish study done by a local watershed group. While they didn’t see brilliant colours and exotic looking tropical fish, they did get the opportunity to touch fish that are native to our home. They were disgusted and thrilled by the experience and are looking forward to next summer when they can do it all over again!
The “Terra by Battat – Tropical Fish” set brings the tropics to your playroom. The set comes with 8 different types of fish for a total of 40 fish, and 6 different crabs for a total of 20 crabs. The entire set consists of 60 pieces.
Each figure measures between 1-2.5 x 1.5-2.5 inches. They are not to scale.
Each fish has been painted in the bright colours found on tropical fish to give them a realistic look. Each toy is 100% non-toxic and passes all USA, all Canadian, and even the more stringent European toxicity and safety tests.
The recommended age for this playset is three years and older. Please be aware that these pieces are small and could pose a choking hazard.
The fins on some of the fish are warped causing them to fall over.
The toys can be used in a variety of ways, the only limitation is your imagination. My children love to take these toys into the bathtub with them. They dry easily and stay mould free because there is no place for water to get in them.
Teachers can use the “Terra by Battat” playsets in the classroom in a variety of ways. Use these figures to teach data management skills like sorting, graphing and counting. You can find counting mats on “Teachers Pay Teachers” and other sites online.
Each set arrives in a plastic container that is easily broken, so I would recommend finding an alternative storage solution.
The “Terra by Battat – Tropical Fish” set brings the fun and wonder of the tropical oceans to your little one.
