Our Plastic Squirting Toy Goldfish This bright orange goldfish is made of hollow, flexible plastic, and measures 7 inches from nose to tail. It will float on its side (sorry it does not look like it's swimming), and you can squeeze it under water to fill up the hollow inside. When you take it out of the water, you can squeeze it again and it will squirt out of its mouth. It makes a realistic and fun bath toy. It can also be used as interesting decor in your home. Because of its bright color and the translucent plastic (the fins are actually transparent), it was hard to photograph. The color is BRIGHT - almost day-glo orange. The eye is painted black and white. Come see our enticing assortment of goldfish and other plastic fish toys.
Goldfish are a small member of the carp family and can trace their genealogy back to ancient China. There are more than three hundred various breeds of goldfish and they vary tremendously in terms of coloring, body size, and the development of their fins. Some breeds can only exist in the structured environment of an aquarium while others do very well in the wild. Frequently stocked in ponds and large bodies of relatively stagnant water, goldfish are an excellent mosquito control and thereby provide an insecticide free alternative in the battle against West Nile Fever and other mosquito borne illnesses.
