~I received a Pout-Pout Fish Doll for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
I recently reviewed the book The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School and my 5 year old instantly became a Pout-Pout fan. Well now this super cute book series has an adorable Pout-Pout Fish Doll from Merry Makers, Inc. to snuggle while reading the books.
MerryMakers was founded in 1993 with the goal of providing carefully designed dolls and toys based on the very best children’s books, museum collections, and other characters for customers around the world. We handle all stages of product development, from design to the manufacture and delivery of finished products. In addition to our line of licensed dolls, we make custom products for a wide variety of clients, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Louvre, Colonial Willamsburg, and publishers in the US and abroad.
In the story, Mr. Fish nervously awaits his first day of school and frets about everything. How to write his name, how to draw shapes and even how to do math. Then he realizes that school is the perfect place to learn all of those things.
The story is rhyming, very easy to read and has beautiful illustrations throughout. Although it begins sad (because he is a pouty fish!) it winds up with a very sweet ending that all kids beginning school can relate to.
The Pouty plush is soft and the perfect colors to match the books. Now we can’t read a Pout-Pout book without this plush in my girls’ laps!
It’s wonderful that I catch my daughters in a world of imagination as they take their Pout-Pout doll throughout the house for new adventures. Merry Makers sells many adorable plushes to match some of our other favorite books as well, so we will have to add some to our collection for the holidays.
