DO NOT BUYApr 10, 2008
By McKenna J
It's a shame how much is being charged for this toy. It is so poorly made. The pets are not submerged in the boat as they appear on the box. The boat is flat so the pets keep falling out while my son is playing with it. Also, the flag on the boat does not stay on. I paid over $40.00 and wish I had known this before. It was so disappointing and made my son cry. Its now sitting in a toy box after 1 day.

there is no standrads left in Fisher-Price...very cheaply made toy with no educational valueMar 06, 2009
Obviously this toy was designed by someone who never watched the show. The Flyboat in the show is made from the ordinary items found in the classroom. A big part of the show is the time when Wonder Pets work together to build the boat - 'Team Work'. The first thing my 3-yr-old son tried to do with the toy is to take it apart and build it back like in the show. The toy is a plasticized, dumbed-down, cheaped-out version of the Flyaboat. The Flyboat in the show is made of a frizbee, erector set sticks, marble, paper, and maker caps. I cannot understand why they could not make the toy to resemble the construction in the show. Obviously the focus went into making it sing. Whoever designed this toy does not udnerstand pre-schoolers who are the taget maket group for this toy. They can sing themselves. They can sing the whole show if you ask them. What they need is to pretend to be Wonder Pets. The toy misses the whole point. It is so overpriced for what it is - it has no educational values and constructed very cheaply. It is very disppointing that Fisher Price will put their name on this toy.

A DisappointmentMay 13, 2008
My daughter loves the Wonder Pets, so we were so very disappointed with this toy. The "pets" don't attach to the boat well (or easily) and the mast just won't stay in place. My two-year-old gets so frustrated that it won't work right! Usually, FP makes wonderfully useful toys for toddlers -but this one isn't one of them.

Second Birthday FavoriteNov 28, 2008
By Suzy Kosh
I can understand the frustration with this toy, but wanted to share a different perspective. My son loves the fact that he can take apart the mast and put it back together--just like the Wonder Pets do on the show. His only frustration is that all the parts don't come off! He's able to take the pets off and put them back on without trouble. The flyboat plays a lot of the music and phrases from the show and my son LOVES it.

My daughter's favorite, my nemesis!Apr 17, 2009
This is probably my daughter's favorite toy, but I kind of hate it-- it's so poorly made! The first 24 hours with it (after Xmas) nearly drove us insane. As others have mentioned, the pets are supposed to be held onto the flat-topped boat (which lacks sides) with tiny pegs wildly inadequate for the figures' sizes; the idea works well with many action figures, but the proportions here are all wrong. Some kids may not mind the figures falling off, but mine most definitely does!
After a zillion temper tantrums and repositionings with tape the first day, I bought the thinnest, strongest velcro I could find and made new attachment points for the pets. They still fall off occasionally, but it's a LOT better.
We haven't had problems with the mast or sail falling off, and my daughter enjoys "building" the boat. I like the fact that the sound effects can be turned off, and my daughter generally prefers it that way. Unfortunately a lot of the paint is chipping off the pets themselves (after 4 months of gentle but almost daily play). My daughter adores the figures and doesn't seem to mind the wear, but I wish this toy was better made. With the exception of the 3-packs of figures, the other toys in this line look even worse (based on inspection in the store, at least). Why such poor execution?
Small fans of the Wonder Pets will love this toy, so I can't exactly recommend you avoid it. Unfortunately, many parents will hate it; consider yourself warned, and get some velcro ahead of time.
