For the kid in all of us (and the real kids too) check out the Replica Toy Fish Company.
Thanks to Simeon Chambers, one of the founders of Replica Toy Fish Company, for contacting me about his toy fish. There are currently 16 different species represented, from muskellunge to alligator gar. Pending future sales, additional species will be manufactured. How badass would it be to have a toy bowfin or buffalo? These are some cool replicas for sure; my kids were drawn to them the second I removed the fish from the package. They are firm and sturdy and accurately colored. They should hold up well to abuse. I wish I had some as a kid.
The best reason to purchase a few toy fish? Because Replica Toy Fish is working towards helping educate our youth about our fisheries. Wholesale pricing is available for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other youth organizations.
