Major Bath-Time Fun Jun 21, 2010
[[VIDEOID:mo2CFIUOB60R4Z4]]The Yookidoo is great bath time fun - better yet, kids of all ages will love it (well up to a point). The concept of the Yookidoo fountain is pretty basic it has an opening at the bottom with a small pump. The pump circulates the water to the top and fountain is put into motion (it will make more sense once you see the video). Our daughter loves playing with her Yookidoo even if it is mainly to try to find ways to drink the water!
Things we like -
- It is very quiet - if it wasn't for the falling water you wouldn't even know it was on
- A variety of cups to catch the water (see the video)
- Suction cups work great for attaching to the bath tub.
- Seems to be high quality (so far) we have used it daily for about 1 month.
Areas for improvement
- It is a minor complaint, but it might be nice if it was a little bigger
Final Verdict- I can't imagine any child that wouldn't enjoy the Yookidoo fountain. You can buy this with confidence.

great product bad company Oct 14, 2009
My kids love love loved this but in less than a month it just stopped working. I called the company international playthings and they basically said "not our problem". I have never had such bad customer service with a toy company. They said any problem I had would have to be dealt with through the toy store where I purchased it. I love this product but knowing what I know now I would not recommend it or any international playthings toy as they do not stand behind there merchandise.

Incredibly cute! - but won't last!!! Nov 02, 2010
I am yet another parent with a toy that was well enjoyed - great fun! - BUT it was short lived. The 2nd week after my daughter's birthday this toy was not working right. By the 3rd week it would not turn on at all. When we went to change the batteries we found that gasket on the battery compartment had not sealed at all!
Actually, my husband had worried initially that the gasket did not look very reliable, but we put in the batteries anyway, and believe me, he made sure to screw the cover on tightly. But, sure enough, after the 3 weeks we opened the battery compartment and icky brown/black water dripped out. The batteries were all rusted/corroded from the water infiltrating. Even the spring that presses against the negative end of the battery had rusted right off!
This toy was so much fun that I would really like to order it again, but only if I can find a way to insert a gasket that will really seal so the toy won't be ruined. Also, while we were careful to keep the battery compartment above the water level when we suctioned the toy to the tub, it would also be advisable (though not at all practical) to take the batteries out after each bath and dry the compartment out.

Works again after a little Cleaning!! Aug 25, 2012
My grand-daughter loved this bath toy. It gave her much pleasure for almost a year. But then, as others have noted, it stopped working. My husband replaced the dead batteries, but it still didn't work. He was about to buy a new one, when he started reading these reviews. Here are his words:
Unlike some reviews, I noted that our battery compartment was in pretty good shape - no corrosion. But I was especially impressed with the review by "Auntie (Montana)", who recommended taking the cover off the inlet and "un-seizing the motor" with a screwdriver.
I removed the 4 screws on the light blue "underwater" component. Inside was a small white plastic "screen" which was moderately plugged with hair and other junk. I washed all the stuff off the screen. Then I noticed that the small hole where water is sucked into the pump blades was completely plugged with a big wad of hair and junk. I removed that.
The motor still didn't run, but it was quite warm to the touch, meaning that current was flowing into the motor, but was just generating heat because it had seized up. I turned the pump blades a couple of times with a small screwdriver, and surprise - it started running again. It seemed to seize up a couple of times while I was testing it. But after a couple more turns with the screwdriver it got back to normal and now runs every time when the orange button is pressed.
Be careful when replacing the blue cover, as the white screen only goes in one way. I hope this information finds its way to those who have had trouble. Perhaps a little cleaning will restore your toy to working order as it has for ours.
Now that I have read a few more reviews, I see that others have discovered this same technique. Well, I will just add my two cents to the discussion.

How to repair this toy if it stops working Jun 10, 2010
My son loves this toy and the cups that come with it. I got this when my son was 17 months old and he loved it until it stopped working after about four months and he would cry "Yoo-kid -o"! and "momma fix it!" I couldn't find any warrantee info.
Sometimes just taking the cover off the inlet will magically start it working again. I found that the pump had seized up a couple times and taking the cover off and sticking the screw driver into the pump fins and spinning it will restart it.
