EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Inspired by Disney/Pixar's Finding Dory, the Swimming Marlin from Zuru features a realistic tail fin motion so she appears to swim just like a real fish. If you're familiar with Robo Fish, Marlin works the same way. When Marlin is placed in water, a simple-to-use, water-activated swimming mechanism automatically turns on, which causes the neurotic clown fish to swim. 


Marlin won't keep going until his battery runs out thanks to a "power save" mode, which activates after he's been swimming for one minute. This will completely stop his swimming until you remove Marlin, dry him off, and put him back in the water. Another way to cease Marlin's fishy antics is by simply removing the orange clown fish from water and drying him off with a soft cloth or towel. 

Is It Fun?
Finding Dory fans will love watching Marlin mimic the underwater movements of real fish as he swims around in the bath or pool. Put Marlin in your fish tank and watch him go from stationary to flailing his plastic tail in no time. Speaking of fish tanks, the Swimming Marlin toy will also make for great decor in yours if you wish to do so. Marlin will engage children's imaginations as soon as they place him in water, causing them to recreate scenes from the Finding Dory or Finding Nemo movies or come up with new stories and adventures for this quirky, but charming fish. 
Who It’s For
Recommended for ages 3 and up, the Swimming Marlin fish toy takes hold of children's imaginations as his realistic fin patterns create movement similar to that of a real fish. Fans of the two Disney/Pixar films in which he and Dory star will like the novelty aspect of this Robo Fish concept as well as fish owners looking for a coral collectible to display inside their tank.
What To Be Aware Of

Like Dory, Marlin comes with three button cell batteries, and also includes three extra batteries. Marlin will swim undisturbed for one minute before going into "power save" mode, which stops his realistic tail fin motion until he's removed and placed back in water. Other Finding Dory characters like Swimming Nemo, Swimming Dory, and Swimming Bailey are also available and sold separately. All Finding Dory Swimming Fish are fitted with technology similar to Robo Fish in order to move their tail fins back and forth like a real fish. Each fin-powered swimming toy is fun on its own, or as part of a collection.
