Start your girl slowly. Peas in a bowl first, then a little bit of water and a bit more as she figures it out. I had 5 rats that I tried it with, and only one figured it out. She would pull out a pea and they would steal it from her...hilarious!!!

I agree about the heat pillow... it kinda scares me that they could break it open.

My boys liked pea fishing from day 1. But when I take them to the bathtub to go swimming for real, they aren't big fans. I put a basket upside-down in the center of the tub so they could have an island, and for the most part, they stay there. But I started using broken pieces of yogies as rewards for when they do venture out and swim. I am thinking that eventually they will get used to swimming and enjoy it because it means they get treats.

That's an awesome idea! My girls hate the bathtub... maybe a little island and some yogies would help them to enjoy the experience a little more!
