From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

The anglerfish is a perfect example to show how bioluminescence is a functional feature. The lure glows to attract dinner, so we made a light-up plush that blinks off when you chomp!

    Such amazing quality and loved the poster and the cards. I’m a librarian and I got it for Storytime.



    My son loves the Light-Up Anglerfish puppet. He insisted that we turn off all the lights so the fish could play with the other stuffed animals in the dark.



    I got two for my three year old boys and they are obsessed. They play “deep deep sea” and the “anglerfish game” and love using them in pretend and active play. To be fair they were fascinated with anglerfish before the puppets but these have added significantly to their interest.



    My three year old loves this hand puppet! The light was falling back into the fish's lure, but otherwise seems to be great quality. Very unique!

    what's not to love? I purchased this as a prize for our Summer Reading Program, Oceans of Possibilities!



    Super cute and fun to use! Also very soft. I do wish that the bulb on his head would be a little less floppy.
