Place the battery-operated submarine at the bottom of the tub using the suction cup and get ready for action. Make sure the water level covers the submarine windows.
Start the steady flow of water by squeezing the knobs on the diver shower handle, which are designed especially for easy grip and activation by small hands.
Aim the water flow at the whale to see it float and swim across the tub.
Direct the water flow into the whale’s tail and watch it spraying water from its head.
Fill up the whale with water and suddenly it's a water-pouring funnel. When filling the whale through the mouth, you can pour the water out both from the front and a small hole in the back. What a fun sense of accomplishment!
Good to Know
The submarine and whale can travel in shallow waters, so a safe water level is enough. Also, since the submarine circulates water from the tub, water temperature remains constant.
No more running water! The Submarine Spray Whale caters to kids’ love of running water by spraying bath water using its unique circulating water pump (CWP).
Like all Yookidoo motorized bath toys, our award-winning Submarines uphold the most stringent water safety standards and are the only IPX7 waterproof certified bath toys.
We love all of the Yookidoo bath toys, in fact, we have almost all of them. This one is especially fun as it allows our 16 month old to learn her hand-eye coordination, and she doesn't even know she is learning! We were really impressed with the quality and as always..." | Schaffe

When a thorough cleaning is required, fill up a bucket with water and add in some vinegar. Let the toy soak in the vinegar water for around 20 minutes, then turn it on and off a few times to circulate the water through the pump. repeat this step with clean water to wash the vinegar out. Rinse it off and dry using a paper or cloth towel.
