When I was a kid, I won a goldfish from a fair at my school. Naturally, my parents got me a bowl and some food, then a few days later it died. This happened a couple other times, before I just stopped trying to win them. Thankfully my parents were smart enough to keep the bowl and food around, so they wouldn’t have to buy them again in the future. However, I wonder if their money wouldn’t have been better spent on one of these Electronic Gold Fish In a Bowl.
As the name implies, the fish swimming around in this bowl is not alive. This is great, because if it was never alive, you can’t actually kill it from neglect. The only thing you have to feed this little swimmer is a trio of AA batteries. There is even an LED that will gradually change colors, to provide the perfect lighting for your room at night. At $20, it’s probably cheaper than trying to win a fish at your local fair.
