Expanding toy in the shape of a fish. Made from hard spongy and expanding blue polymeric material. The toy is labelled with: “COLORED GROWING“, “Expands 600 % of size”.

Do not expect instant results because it takes up to 72 hours to fully expand. Remove animal from water and it will shrink to original size. Amazing fun and an educational experience”. “WARNING”, “MADE IN CHINA”, Toy measurement – 56 x 22 x 10mm, mass – 7.0 gr. CE mark (very small).
