This review is from: Air Swimmer Flying Fish - Shark - Extreme Model (Radio Control) (Toy)
I will start by saying I normally love Animal Planet toys and my son has a ton of them. This toy is JUNK. All it is, is a balloon. All the fins and the tail? They stick on with TAPE tabs. Better hope your "balloon" holds air better than ours because if you need to refill the balloon all the tape tabs let go and won't restick. This could have been a great toy with only slight modifications. BIG FAIL for Animal Planet.

If you bother to follow the instructions and put it together right, it works fine. Of course it's based on a balloon, how did you expect that it flies? Inflate it to the maximum you want to inflate, and attach the fins and such.

I read the reviews, but I didn't listen, ours was just like that. It even stopped working after the second day of having it! And we got ours from "Toys R us!"

I read the directions and I watched a youtube video of how to put this thing together. I spent a large quantity of time putting this together properly as well as properly inflating it prior to putting the sticky tabs on. Still fell apart. It is a $50 piece of junk.

I am sorry you were so personally offended by my review. I did "bother" to read the directions and I also watched a video (as stated) and it was still crap. You must work for the company or something to take my review so personally.
