When my daughter got old enough for the "big tub" I was so excited
that I wanted to get her some special "big girl" tub toys, and when I saw the Wave Rider Elmo, I thought it was SO adorable! My daughter absolutely LOVES Elmo (as every other kid does) and I guess the kid
in ME liked the idea of the wave runner cruising in the bath water.
I'll never forget carefully removing it from the box - it's attached on there so securely you'd think you were breaking into Fort Knox - and
wound it up and put in the water, waiting for the "big" moment to arrive when my daughter would see cute little Elmo travelling across the bath water....
Zip. Nada. Nothing.
Well, actually, something DID happen... The spinner "spun out" so fast that it didn't actually go anywhere! We kept trying, and trying, but all we got were the same results. Then it started filling with water - and basically, we were VERY disappointed. I failed to see the
fun in it, or how it EVER got approval to be manufactured in the first place! The idea is cute, but until it is better implemented, Wave Runner Elmo is totally useless (except for being cute - but I want toys I pay good money for to actually DO what they claim to do!)
So, back it went into its' Fort Knox-like box, and
right back to the store where we got a refund.
Don't bother with this toy - you could spend your money much better on something else for tub time!
