What are Air Swimmers?

Fish that Fly through the Air!

We’ve all seen R/C controlled planes and remote controlled helicopters and quite frankly they are old hat. Heck, we’ve even seen radio controlled fish that can swim in the bath during bath time. But people, never – I repeat NEVER have we seen the likes of the Marvel that is the Air Swimmer!

Shark Air Swimmer and Clown Fish Air Swimmer

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope – it’s a Fish. A big old, floating, flying, phenominal fish! Splendid.

Coming in both the menacing Shark Air swimmer and the Air-swimmer Clown Fish, these super cool flying fish promise to be the toy of the year!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the…erm… living room, you’d better think twice as the Shark glides through the air with what is quite simply a lifelike flick of his big old fin. It’s scary.

The great thing about the air swimmers is that unlike the Old helium blimps that were available a decade or so ago, they actually work and can fly (nay glide) through the air with consumate ease in such a graceful manner that they really could be… well… swimming! The power comes from the fin (think of it as its propellor) which make it move up, left, right and down.

The products quite literally stole the show (well they looked so mean/cute who was going to argue) at the Toy Fair in January and are sure to be a massive hit this Christmas. Quite simply they are the must have gadget for 2011 – 2012.
