Shakespeare Disney Princess Backpack Rod and Reel Fishing Kit for Girls
My 6yo daughter caught 2lb flathead with it!
Daughter loved her whole kit, but especially the little pole. Went out today to use it for the first time, and she caught a Bluegil within 5 minutes of casting. About 15m later, while Im baiting my own pole, I hear her say "Oh yeah! Its BIG!" as the drag starts spinning like crazy. I ran over and cranked down the drag, and she reeled in her first ever catfish, a 2lb Flathead! She was so excited. She was HOOKED after that. Caught 2 more little fish before the rain chased us out. The reel did start to mess up after about the 3rd fish. Was having trouble casting, even with the button pushed. Had to pull the line out till you felt that it was free, and then cast it. Its a cheap little outfit, but to see my 6 year old girl smile from ear to ear after catchin a fish like her Daddy made it worth every penny!

Purchased to be the 1st outfit for yet un-born granddaughter (she's due Dec. 15th!). Appears to be a sturdy, yet simple to use rig. Will advise in 3 or so years.

Great purchase for teaching a little girl wanting to learn out to fish. Just a great deal for a little one, very stylish and kid friendly.
