Watch your heads fish-fearers - here come the Air Swimmers

If you’re looking for a fun toy that will turn your home into some kind of weird, waterless fish tank while freaking the living shit out of people of all ages, this could be the one for you this Christmas.

They’re called Air Swimmers, remote-controlled helium balloon fish that come in either Jaws or Nemo types of styles. Fill ‘em with helium, grab your controller and fly them around the room or outdoor area, freaking out anyone who gets in your way. Superb – take a look at them in action.

They’re only about £30 apiece but if you’re thinking of making a purchase, there’s a couple of snags. One – they’re not being shipped outside of the UK and Canada, and two – they’ve gone ‘viral’ on The Internet over the past few days and there’s none to be had. Probably time for a Dragon to step in and make a quick billion.

EDIT: As mentioned in the comments below, these are in the current Argos Book Of Dreams. However, they seem to be out of stock everywhere. Keep an eye out if you're enthralled by these fishy wonders.
