The Wacka Wacka fish.

Someone help me find another toy like this one. (more inside.)

Help me find this fish toy in the U.S.

When I first met my wife, she was crazy about this little fish - it swims around the tank by way of a magnet, and it makes this weird little noise as the magnet bounces up and down... she called it her "wacka-wacka fish."

So anyway, the fish's tail fell off. It's lasted 13 years, so I guess it's had a good life. I managed to find the toy online at this website, but can't seem to find it for sale online anywhere.....

Although you see a lot of these cheapy little fish tanks at flea markets and such, I've failed to come across one like this.

Can anyone help me find another "wacka-wacka?"

I'm not sure if this is precisely what you want, but there's a magnetic fish tank on craigslist featuring 3 fish.

Their page says they don't sell directly to the public, but they do have a contact form. Maybe if you give them your zip code or address, they could suggest a reseller in your area?

(I did some searching; I couldn't find it, either. Though there are many like b/f used to sell one very similar, but with three fish - at KB toys.)

Response by poster: Nope.. those three fish ones don't work.... I need one exactly like the image. See, if you look closely, the fish has a little red thread in his mouth.... this is what makes him move around... there's a magnet at the bottom of the thread, and it pulls him around.

It's in bad taste, really.... a terrible toy. But my wife loves it.

Have you contacted DYToy to see who they distribute to here in the US (assuming thats where you are)?

There are several stores in the International District of Seattle that carry what looks just like you want. Depending on your metro area, I'd try out those possibilities.
