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.
