World's most awesome balloon / blimp / fish-craft!
Air Swimmers are amazing fish that literally swim throughthe air. You have complete up, down, and 360-degree control via a simpleinfra-red remote.
Kids and adults will have a blast roaming their homes,offices, and parties with the smooth-flying and lifelike Air Swimmers.
Two button remote = easy to operate
The Air Swimmer remote has two rocker buttons that controlthe balloon's height and tail movement. Propel your fish by wagging its tailfin left and right. Hold down the button to one side to perform quick turns.
To adjust the height of your Air Swimmer, press the Dive orClimb buttons. Doing so moves the signal receiver along the track on theunderside of the fish. This shift in weight causes the Air Swimmer to raise orlower in mid-air.
Air Swimmers are not your average balloon. Not only can youfly them around as if they're swimming through the air, but they're big. Reallybig. Like 5-feet-long big.
While this may seem unwieldy, rest assured that you cancontrol them quite precisely. You can easily swim down hallways and make smooth90-degree turns through doorways.
Lifelike swimming movements
You control the Air Swimmer's large tail fin with theincluded remote. Simply rock the tail button left and right to propel your fishthrough the air. You'll be amazed at how much its movements emulate those ofreal fish.
Simple to control its altitude
Air Swimmers come with a small slab of putty. You willinsert a small amount of it into the gray receiver unit that is attached to theunderside of the fish in order to keep it from floating away.
Once you have established neutral buoyancy (balance), makingyour Air Swimmer climb and dive is simple.
Fill, empty, & refill as often as you like
Helium is rather inexpensive and can be found at any partystore, grocery shop, or florist that sells balloons. For just a few bucks, youcan have your Air Swimmer fully inflated. The durable nylon material will stayafloat for weeks!
Unlike single-use balloons, however, you can easily deflateyour Air Swimmer and store it for reuse. Its one-way valve means emptying andrefilling the balloon is easy. You can even insert a straw into the valve andblow a few breaths into the Air Swimmer to extend the fill-up for another weekor so.
Cleverly designed remote also anchors your Air Swimmer
As helium inevitably escapes from the balloon, you will needto remove some of the putty from the receiver in order to maintain neutralbuoyancy. The remote control for the Air Swimmer cleverly features a smallcompartment for storing your extra putty.
The remote control also houses a small clip that you canattach to the control wire on the underside of the Air Swimmer. This allows youto anchor the fish when not in use.
