Utter garbage. Jan 01, 2010
By Colin Thompson
I don't have any pros for this one, so we'll skip straight to the cons:
1. Like other reviewers have noted, the toy comes without any packaging, box, plastic bag - nothing. It arrives floating, unprotected, in a manila envelope. Niiiice touch, "bravofun". It may as well have come out of a gumball machine.
2. After winding up the diver... he doesn't really go anywhere. The diver's two flippers move in a repetitive up-down motion, but there isn't any forward propulsion produced. Wind it up and give it a good shove, and he'll still just float there with two vertically-flapping feet. Sort of defeats the whole purpose of a wind-up bathtub toy. Fail.
3. The diver is definitely not watertight. Put it in the water (wound up or not), and he'll suddenly list to one side or the other. This in turn brings one of the flippers nearly or completely out of the water. Even with one flipper out of the water, it still doesn't go anywhere. Fail again.
Bottom line - if you're looking for a relatively fun and engaging bathtub toy for a toddler... keep looking. This was nine bucks tossed out the window.

Twin Toddler Boys love it in the tub-Kick Kick Kick Oct 23, 2008
I expected more junk from abroad but for the cheap price I picked up this and the wind up sub together. I love them both and it's been nearly a month now.
The kids get a kick out of the diver because he kicks those legs. It's a riot. Even if it gets trashed, I'm gonna get another. Both still function fine though.
I also like that it is just a toy, not connected to some TV show or marketing scheme.
Kick little guy kick...then bam..Conor smashes the sub into it...what joyful bath time. Thumbs up.

The diver who can't swim... Feb 15, 2010
By R. Quigley
What a disappointment! This was one of (3) new bath toys that I purchased for my five year old for tub time. All three were basically junk. In this case, the diver can't swim through the water, and just flaps its feet like your child may do at swim class while holding onto the side of the pool.

Bath Toy Sep 12, 2009
By Mark R. Chambers
The boys love it as a bath toy, it makes it easier to get them in the bath as they love to resist taking one.

Junk is an understatement Nov 01, 2012
By Megan Jones

My preschooler has been wanting a diver for the bath for a while now. He saw a bin of these at a local bookstore and wanted me to get him one. Most of them were already broken and so I said I would find him one online. I could not find ANY other wind-up type diver tub toys so I called the bookstore back after they got a new shipment to have them hold one, but they said they couldn't find one that worked! So, I decided to try good ol' Amazon. Ordered it and, sure enough, it didn't work when it arrived. You could wind it up, but no movement. I called Amazon and told them what happened and they shipped me a new one. This time it arrived without a head -- and the winding mechanism STILL didn't work! Under any normal circumstance I would have never bought this in the first place, but it was the only moving bath tub diver I could find. Shame on them for making a product that can't even start out working! Calling it junk is just way too kind.
