Mattel Screature toy will not squirt water

We purchased a Screature for our son recently. It would not squirt water. We double checked the instructions and made sure we were doing everything properly, including taking the toy out out of the ''Try Me'' mode. We took the toy back to the store and exchanged it for a new one. It would not squirt water either. We made sure the water tank was full and we replaced the batteries. That did not help. We also called the Mattel customer service number and the representative told me we were doing everything properly. She offered to send us a new Screature, but we decided against it after 2 of them failed to work. All of the other functions seem to work OK. I also looked at some reviews of this product posted by others on several websites (i.e. and found that several other people have the same problem with this toy.

SOURCE: Rose Art Super Shrink Art Instructions?

I emailed Mega Brand's Consumer Affairs Dept and received the following instructions re Rose Art's Super Shrink Art:

Super Shrinky Dinks Art


Step 1: Place a sheet of Shrinky Dinks over a design with the rough side up. Trace the design including the thin cut line around the edge. When tracing letters, draw your own cut line approximately ¼” away from the letters.

Step 2: Color and decorate your artwork with the other colored pencils. Be sure to stay only on the rough side of the Shrinky Dinks.

Step 3: Ask an Adult to help you with this step. Cut out your colored design from the Shrinky Dinks following the traced cut line. Make sure all of the edges are smooth. Do not leave any sharp corners or they will become very pointy when the art is shrunk. Use a hole, punch if you want to make a key chain.

Step 4: ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED FOR BAKING. Pre-heat your home or toaster oven to 325*F (163*C) NO MICROWAVE. Put your creation onto a non-stick cookie sheet with the colored side up. Place in oven and watch until it shrivels up and then flattens out.
