1 out of 5 eggsNot recommended

Pros: Fun to play with if you have the space.

Cons: It is a pain in the rear to assemble with the supplied tape. The double sided tape did not adhere properly to the body. Slow leak meant it was functional for a couple hours max. Current Helium shortage means ~$8 to $10 to fill the item. A bit too large to play with in most homes. Takes up lots of space so filling at a party store and then getting it home can be a pain.

Other Thoughts: Supplied double sided tape was not completely pre-cut so the pieces would frequently tear when removed from the sheet. Take the time to cut them out of the sheet ahead of time to make assembly a little less frustrating. I'm assuming most of the fliers do not leak so you may have a better experience with the item. If mine didn't leak, I would give it three stars. It is a nice idea and fun to play with but not worth the time and cost to assemble.

2 out of 5 eggsLower quality than Air Swimmer

Pros: It does work.

Cons: Balloon suffered from poor helium retention. Control mechanisms suffered from poor adhesion to balloon.

Other Thoughts: I also bought an Air Swimmer flying shark. The overall fit & finish is much better on the Air Swimmer.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not stay inflated

Pros: Price on sale compared to Big Box stores.

Cons: Shark will not stay inflated from the first time it was taken to local store to inflate with helium. Very disappointed Christmas morning when the kids couldn't play with it because it didn't have enough helium left to get flight. Nothing but…..sad faces!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Gift

Pros: We ordered this as a Christmas present for our adult son, who was highly amused. We paired it with the Shark week DVD, a tank a helium, some batteries, and he thought it was a hoot.

Cons: If you have a limited sense of humor, this would not be your gift.

4 out of 5 eggsSuper Fun...BUT

Pros: It's really fun to see this thing swimming around.
Once you get the controls learned it is easy to use.
Helium lasts a long time.

Cons: I think the cons kind of take the cake here though.

1. Not to simple to assemble, taping the fins on, seriously?

2. Can't really be used outside because of it being a glorified balloon and any wind makes it hard to control. So you're pretty much limited to indoors and if you have a small place...

3. It takes some time to get the controls down, since you have to learn to dive, climb, and turn.

4. The tricky part of making this swim is the movement of the rear fin, you have to control the sweeping movement so it's not like you have just press forward.

5. It's still Mylar, so no sharp things around or your fish will go pop.

Other Thoughts: Though I think the learning curve, and the assembly, and even the places you can use this thing are difficult and limited. I think it is great fun and that is why it gets 4 eggs.
I'd love to take this to the mall or the park on a windless day and really have some fun with it.
Also, my difficulty with this may not represent what others have experienced.

4 out of 5 eggsflying fish

Pros: Contrary to the comments above the thing DOES say that you have to get the helium separatly as does the video ad that is on this page. Please pay attention before complaining. Make sure you took the time to look, listen and study first.

Cons: none, FOr 35 bucks you cannot beat it. They sell elsewhere for 35 to 75 dollars so the price is good. Fun to chase the dogs with.....

1 out of 5 eggsREQUIRES HELIUM

Pros: Haven't tried it yet. Maybe it works

Cons: It says on the outside of the box, although you can't see it on the picture and it doesn't say in the ad, that HELIUM TANK AND BATTERIES REQUIRED BUT NOT INCLUDED. Even a new car comes with a tank of gas these days. Helium is a critical component of the toy, not trivially cheap, and not something you would probably have around the house, and yet nowhere does the ad mention that you need it to operate the toy.
