Rated 4 out of 5 by somerset13 My First, My Son's First too My first fishing pole was a Snoopy setup about 25 years ago made by Shakespeare. While much has changed with regards to design, lights, and ergonomics one thing remains...tough-as-nails Shakespeare quality. My 24 month old boy loves this thing (2 yr birthday present), and we've caught many bluegill and a couple small bass over the last few weeks. He even chucked it into about 4 feet of water, and after daddy got to retrieve it by wading in, it was no worse for the wear. I'm sure this will hold up until he's old enough for a larger setup. Couldn't be happier. June 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by RAPFISH Really works Good casting distance and decent drag. My 4 yr old son was using this to catch a variety of small bluegill size salt water fish off a dock. I put a larger circle hook and float on and hooked on a small fish (about 4 in) that he had just caught and cast it out. He hooked and landed (with some help) a 14 lb redfish. Talk about one happy kid! Yes, I know it's not designed for salt water and I definitely shortened its lifespan. But it was more than worth it. September 29, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ilarias good with reservations We bought this fishing pole for our daughter's fifth birthday. She is enthusiastically practicing casting with the plug. However, it was difficult to get the line threaded initially (it appeared blocked or tangled) and has frozen up on us again after only the first day of practicing with it. So, I'm happy that it's a real, usable rod, but there are clearly a few kinks to work out. Shipping was pretty expensive too, but it came very quickly, which I appreciated. July 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by bullseye2 disney cars pole Man this thing is tough! I bought this for my 20 month so that he can learn the fundamentals to casting and fishing. He love the light up feature and the design. I have found that the pole is toughas nails! My son love the pole so much but abuses it by using it as a baseball bat. Great product. July 19, 2011

A:Through the eyes on the rod, from bottom to top.
A:Changing line on spincast reels
Remove the front cone by twisting to the right.
Remove the plastic sleeve by slightly twisting to the right and pulling up.
Remove all old line, check for dirt or debris. To clean the area, drag a clean, dry cloth around the empty spool.
Load the new line on the empty spool. This is easiest if you attach the reel to a rod and use the reel handle to evenly lay the line on the reel spool. Do not overload.
Replace the plastic ring. The line should come up inside the ring.
Place the line through the opening in the front cone and then replace the cone.
The line will go through the guides and then add bobber, hook, lures and then fish!
