Air Swimmers: Remote Control Toy Review

Air Swimmers: Remote Control Toy Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 19, 2011

Attention prank and practical joke lovers: Air Swimmers are a new toy fish designed to scare your friends and family. Air Swimmers are a cool modern piece of technology that has huge sharks and fish flying in the air right before your eyes!

Fish and Fears

Well, of course they’re just a toys, but the promotional video from Air Swimmers has really convinced us at Kidzworld that these fish look pretty real. Who knows, you might be able to convince your practical joke victim that they are real flying fish!

How does it work?

It's simple, kind-of: a 1.5-volt AAA-powered motor attaches to a small plastic pod on the bottom of the balloon, and the accompanying controller uses infrared reception to control the tail rudder's speed and navigation. You get a remote control and it’s just like piloting the Goodyear Blimp.

The setup requires some assembly, as well as a helium tank, so we recommend children are accompanied by an adult for your first few tries at it.

Some practical jokes you can pull are:

  • Wake up your little sister with a shark attack
  • Fly one into the room while your parents are watching the movie Jaws
  • Pretend like your living in the sea while doing a video chat on SKYPE

The Air Swimmers Flying Clownfish and Shark balloons sell for only $40, but are all sold out at the moment on the official Web site. Fortunately, you can still scare your little sister and add joy to an otherwise boring school day with the Clown Fish at the M&M Toy Store.

Can't wait for the game, anyone else think it may be better than CoD and Battlefield? I was gonna give a PC Gamer link on the new "Operator System," it also gives links to the gameplay trailer and a really cool hands on, but then KW bot informed me that i can't (which is completely ridiculous and incredibly annoying).  If you wanna check it out go to the PC Gamer site, I think its still on their homepage.

I think they should be able to because everybody has there own style for example i like to play action games like Tanki & Call Of Duty and Call Of Duty Ghost they are not that into action but you know what i mean. This kid in my class in 3rd grade said games and and xbox are for only boys. i play tanki, sims 3,and expantion packs with the sims 3, Call Of Duty(Ghost), Minecraft and all sorts of diffeent games so post now on you opinion!
