Plush dog, bear, and kitty that were made to take in the tub. Came out in the late 80's [maybe 88 or 89]. The commercial was in the tune of Lollipop [Water pets, water pets, oh wa wa water pets, water pets! boom boom boom boom!] and the bear was yellow with red and blue swim trunks, and the dog was blue.

If there was a penguin of the water pets, I had one. I got it for my birthday one year. I had been wondering what the heck these things were called!

oh, that abominable song! Almost 20 years later, and that song pops into my head-- "water pets/water pets/love getting water wet...they jump in the water/they don't need a boat/because water pets love to float!" Ugh.

This is one toy I CANNOT find pictures of online, and I NEVER see any listings on eBay. I had the red dog.. I loved him. Probably one of my all time favorite toys.

I used to have a water pet. I was actually just watching an ancient VHS of The Great Harbor Rescue, which has a single water pets commercial. I was hoping to find at least an image online to explain to my boyfriend.

i can't believe i found this site! i was trying to find a picture of them online and am so glad i found the commercial. apparently when they first came out i kept asking for one but my parents had no idea what i was saying, i guess it sounded something like "waddapet waddapet". Anyway they finally figured out what i was saying and got me the blue cat, i refound it and i submitted a picture i just took so hopefully it'll be up soon!

The new Dell commercials have the Lollipop song on them and I've had it stuck in my head for weeks... then I started getting the lines "they jump in the water/they don't need a boat/because water pets love to float!" instead of the correct lines. It's been driving me crazy that there was a commercial I remembered and I couldn't be sure if "water pets" was the correct name so I had to look it up. I can't believe I remembered something like that twenty years later. I don't even think I had one, just wanted one.

I had a waterpet that was actually a pegasus pony. But it also changed color depending on if it was in hot water or cold water.

My sister got a water pet in 1989 when I was 1 year old and I stole it from here. Now I am 21 and I still have it. He's a yellow bear that says "lifeguard" on his chest. I love him! He's all tattered and worn and dirty, but I love him. :)

Hello everyone. I am selling a water pet on ebay. Check it out. I did not know what it was until I saw this site. I have a picture up of it. Maybe you all can help me sell it.
