Look at all these adorable swim toys from Lil Fishys! My boys were ecstatic to get such fun toys.

When I saw how excited my boys were when opening our Lil Fishys box, I knew that I would need to find ways to incorporate these toys into our summer learning fun plans.  Each boy adopted a different fish but agreed to share to experience the fun with all.

Lil Fishy Aquarium Lucky Playset is a fun and affordable kit that is great for summer learning fun.

We got started indoors using the Lil Fishy Aquarium Lucky Playset.  We cleared off our kitchen counter and got out our batteries box (**warning-make sure to have AAA and AA batteries.  They are not included with toys and your kids will want to start playing with immediately!  We did a Periscope broadcast with introduction to Lil Fishys.

Here are a few Lil’ Fishy toys available on Amazon (aff):

Indoor & Outdoor Fun With Lil Fishys

On a warm Spring day, Smiley had the smart suggestion of taking our Lil Fishys outside for use in our water tables.  This is where the larger toys shone.  These larger fish toys actually have water spout from the top of their backs.  Super fun to play with and watch!

They have also used they motorized toys in the bath tub.  I highly recommend using these toys if you have any reluctant bathers like I do.  At times, we have to drag Bear to the tub.  Much to our delight, Bear ran to the boys’ tub to try out his new “baby”.  Score for Lil Fishys!

My boys can not wait to take their Lil Fishy toys into our above ground pool this summer.  They chat about creating games to play with the fish pool toys.  “Follow the Lil Fishy” and “Lil Fishy Swim Races” are being hashed out with much enthusiasm.

Summer Learning Fun With Lil Fishys

I plan on using their new motorized toy friends to prompt summer learning fun.  We will be conducting further investigations like:

  • Finding books about each type of sea creature
  • Researching various ocean habitats
  • Writing activities for each age level
    • starting letters for each sea creature for Xman (toddler)
    • sea creature words for Bear (5)
    • sentences about sea creatures and habitats for Smiley (7)
    • paragraphs and stories about the above for Professor (11) and Captain (13)
  • Art activities
Summer learning fun is easy and affordable with Lil' Fishys.

These affordable motorized toys have kept my boys busy for hours. They keep coming up with new ways to play with and watch their new friends.  A cool feature of these fish toys is the ability to move their fins.  It gives kids a great opportunity to lean about cause and effect, as well as a bit of basic physics.  The boys just enjoy discovering different ways their toys can be used.
