No Listings are available for this product
The most original and possibly craziest Remote-Controlled product ever made!

The giant sized flying fish is easy to control in the tightest of spaces using the infra-red remote control.

The remote control also moves the fish up and down in the air by moving the 'feeder fish' forward (fish goes down) and backwards (so the fish flies higher).

In this way the fish can even go up and down your stairs!

How to top up your fish:
This fish needs to be filled with Helium before it will fly. Helium is available at most florists and all retail stores that sell Helium party balloons. You can either take the fish and get it filled up locally, or buy a Helium canister to fill up the fish use again and again.

So, get some Helium and you will be flying around your Giant Fish in minutes.

About Air Swimmers
These incredible giant-sized flying fish come in two species, choose from the friendly, endearing flying clownfish or the colossal, flying Shark, or have both and play amazing games of chase between the two!

The Air Swimmers are simple to control in even the tightest of spaces, using the Radio Control handset you can manoeuvre the fish forwards, backwards, sideways and up and down by moving the 'feeder fish'. The controls are so precise you can even make the fish fly upstairs.

Air Swimmers need to be filled with Helium in order to fly. Helium is readily available from florists or party shops and other than the Helium the fish are ready to fly straight out of the box. All batteries are included

This is such good fun! Getting the thing inflated was a mild annoyance- but once that was done it is fantastic! The shark moves in such a lifelike manner that it's really quite amazing -it's really lifelike! It took me about 15 minutes to put it together - make sure that you put both the sticky pads and the transparent stickers around the plastic parts you have to stick to the balloon. The first time I stuck them on I forgot -it needs the other pads to keep it all together.
Overall i'm really pleased with the purchase. It's really easy to control and is surprisingly manoeuvrable -and the look on people's faces when they see it is priceless!
Just try and stop yourself singing "Dur duh -Dur duh" when using it!

 Great present for the hubby

This is the only thing my husband wanted for Christmas, and luckily I managed to get it from Play.com for 22GBP in a 24 hour sale back in November :) he loves it. It was quite fiddly to put together (you need to inflate the shark first so it helps to have one person holding the shark and another attaching the bits and bobs to it) but it works well and looks brilliant floating around our living room. It was much bigger than we expected, but it didn't take very long to fill (you can buy tanks of helium in most supermarkets). I don't think I'd have spent 40GBP on it, but for 22GBP it was a bargain
