Major Bath-Time Fun Jun 21, 2010
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R33NCOFGMD8IIC 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.

Lots of entertainment Sep 17, 2009
By Online Mama
If your children enjoy playing with running water, this toy is a great alternative to continually running the faucet. It seems to be well made and has functioned well for the months that I have had it.
I purchased this toy for my 2 year old, but my five and seven year olds play with it, too. I have been known to stick a cranky kid in the tub to play with this toy for an hour or so- a break for me and an attitude changer for the child!
I am purchasing a few of these for Christmas presents this year!

DON'T BUY--IT WILL QUIT WORKING!!!! Mar 12, 2011
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R165U7CXW3OETX I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son. I had a little trepidation after seeing the reviews that the toy would quit working. I had hope, though, that we could avoid that problem. I let this toy dry thoroughly between bathtimes, and I made sure that the red part that contains the battery compartment was NEVER submerged in water. My kids enjoyed this toy for about two months when it suddenly quit working. I figured that the batteries needed replacing; however, when I opened the battery compartment, the batteries along with the compartment itself were rusted and corroded. This despite taking great care to screw the compartment lid on tightly (it is supposed to seal with a smaller rubber gasket, but clearly that doesn't work too well) and making sure that ONLY the blue water-intake section was in the bath water. This product is a great concept, but it has major design flaws. The product IS a bath toy--there is no way to keep the battery-containing red part completely dry. I wish I had heeded the warnings and not wasted my money!!!!!
