Air Swimmer Shark & Clownfish

Why bother with the classic remote control cars and airplanes when you can now control your very own flying fish or shark? Known for their wide variety of toy collection, the William Mark Corp. definitely turned heads on as they launched their Air Swimmers toy collection in the middle of the Toy Expo Hall last February 2011.  They definitely turned the entire hall into an aquarium with flying fishes all over the area.
As a matter of fact, we have a video of it right here.

Here’s a highlight of the 2011 New York Toy Fair

Air swimmers are big remote controlled toy fishes like the Air Swimmer Shark that are able to swim through the air using life-like motion. These remote control toys are helium filled inflatable balloons with fun remote control systems. The infrared remote offers users complete control of up, down and even 360 degree movement. And you don’t have to worry about bumping your fishes to the wall. The Air Swimmer toys will easily bump back on course. The toy is made up of durable nylon material that can hold the air for weeks, even much longer compared to the traditional balloons. And once it deflates, users can easily refill the helium gas over and over again. The current shapes for the Air Swimmer remote control toy systems include the Air Swimmer Shark and the Air Swimmer Clownfish.
