Share Article

Fish are popular pets for kids, but often kids lose interest in caring for their little pets - until now. Funky Fish® gives kids a new and imaginative way to have more fun with their fish. With Funky Fish, kids and their fish can “chat” together, host a slumber party or even play in a rock band. These chatty Funky Fish friends will help keep kids focused on taking care of their fish in a whole new fun way. See the funky fun on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifLUUnKLEoM.

Funky Fish makes a unique and creative gift under $10 for kids.

"What does your fish have to say?" asks managing partner Gina Eaton. She notes, "Kids love to script their own chat bubbles. It's a conversation that keeps going from day to day."

Funky Fish are colorful, reusable fish characters and themed backgrounds, accessories and chat bubbles. They cleanly and easily cling to the outside of fish bowls and tanks. Each of the Rock Band or Slumber Party kits offers a cleverly themed adventure for the fish tank...and its finny occupants. Kits include 3 fish characters (Zipper, Finn and Koral), accessories, a detailed background, an absorbent 4-color coaster and "chat" bubbles which are scriptable with a dry erase marker. "Kids of all ages" (3 and up) can accessorize their tanks or bowls in endless imaginative ways. Funky Fish Rock Band and Funky Fish Slumber Party are found only online at http://www.gofunkyfish.com for $9.95 (includes free shipping in the contiguous U.S.). They make a unique and affordable gift for kids.

In 2009, Minneapolis, Minnesota parents Mark and Karena Casey, and Bruce and Gina Eaton put their heads together (along with the imaginations of their 4 kids) and developed a fun, creative and inexpensive toy product called Funky Fish. "We developed the kind of toy that parents can really appreciate: no-batteries required, no cleaning, yet affordable and safe," states founding partner Karena Casey. She adds, "Funky Fish helps to refresh interest in something that many families already have: a fish in a tank that might have lost its charm. Funky Fish is totally unique — there's nothing out there quite like it and the kids just love giving the fish characters their own personalities, conversations and adventures."

Funky Fish aren't just for kids: they cling to any clean, smooth surface like windows and computer screens which makes them a great gift for high school and college students as well.
