Oliphant Toilet Fishing.

The Oliphant Toilet Fishing is made from mostly plastic materials.  The main clear pool is made from plastic and measures 10.cm high x 29.0cm in diameter.

The rod for the game is telescopic and extends upto 35.0cm.

To set up and use couldn’t be easier.  Simply lay down the Blue toilet mat which has a cut out to fit around your toilet bowl and fill up the clear plastic pool.  Now add the 4-plastic fish and start your angling adventure.  The rod catches the fish by magnetism.

One thing that did disappoint me though was the fish didn’t float the right way up and float on their side.  They float like there’re dead! A small weighted ballast on the bottom of the fish would ensure that they float upwards.

I like the idea behind this toilet fishing game.  It’s a novelty item and an ideal Father Day gift!  My only issue is the way the fish float, it would be much better to have them floating the right way up!  Overall I recommend this as a novelty gift item.
