Shakespeare Disney Princess Lighted Fishing Rod and Reel Kit for Kids
I bought this pole a year ago and have taken my daughter fishing a couple of times with it. She does catch fish with this combo.
As you can imagine the reel isnt the best. When she does have a fish on the line and she is reeling it in. The torqu,e or should I say the ease of which she can turn the handle, on the reel is not the most kid friendly.
I think the handle is a bit short and requires more muscle than it should for a kids pole.
Once she gets tired of reeling it in and I have to finish reeling it in. Even I have to admit that the friction on the reel ismore than what it should be.
Besides that she enjoys fishing with her princess pole. But she has been asking to upgrade to a "big kids" spinning rod and reel combo.

Excellent Beginner Rod
My parents got this set for each of my daughters when they were six and three years old. My three year old caught a 14 inch large mouth bass as her first catch ever. Both daughters are hooked on fishing thanks to these rods.

Good product for the intent.
The two year old girl played with it and actually caught sun fish and a small bass. For the limited use we gave it, it was fine.
