So far Hammacher Schlemmer has managed to avoid the unfortunate demise of The Sharper Image by keeping their catalog stocked with unique items that don’t immediately make you think “crap!” But it’s items like this that make me wonder if the road to SharperImageTown isn’t just a few short turns away. The Fish Agility Training Set will apparently allow you to teach your ‘pet’ fish a series of underwater activities like swimming through hoops, pushing a soccer ball or navigating a slalom course. Instead of their usual routine of eat, swim, eat, swim, eat, swim, die.

The set comes with all the paraphernalia you’ll need to provide training and positive enforcement like a feeding wand you can use to lead them around. And if your fish tank happens to include certain varieties like Parrotfish or Cichlids, you can even teach them to play fetch thanks to their natural tendencies to move gravel around with their mouths. Thrilling!

Checking the calendar again it’s definitely not April 1st, so you can actually buy this set from Hammacher Schlemmer for $39.95. Oh I get it! There’s the real trick!

  • Hey,

    Your comment about the “Road to Shaper Image town” wasn't very nice. This is a really cool gift for people with pet fish, or parents who are looking for a fun, interactive pet for their kids, without the burden of a dog (walking it, picking up poops, etc.).

    I should know – I'm the developer of the Fish Agility Kit, and I created it because my kids wanted a dog. My wife and I thought dogs were nice, but too much of a hassle. So we decided to see if we could train our fish. And it works!

    I aggree with Dean. I dont think your comments were very nice. I bought this for my two kids and they love it and the fish really do swim around and do tricks. I also enjoy sharper image's gifts. I got a few for christmas and I dont think of them as “crap”… I think of them as very nice and expensive gifts that my loved ones got me. Please dont be mean about others hard work and cool products they have developed.
