Using advanced, patented Air Swimmers technology, you can bring the magic of Angry Birds to life!

The convenient Auto Swim mode makes it easy for anyone to fly and with no limit on how many can fly at once, all of your friends and family can fly too! Angry Birds Air Swimmers Turbo need 4 AA batteries and helium (not included) to fly. Simply fill the balloon with helium at any store that sells balloons or buy a small helium tank and fill it at home. The body is made from a high quality, durable material that will stay inflated for weeks and can be refilled again and again.

edit: 2 whole months of flying with a single fillup of helium and just air to make the balloon full, see my edits at the bottom of this review.

Main review: It's a helium filled balloon after all and I never expected it to zoom along like it does. It works way better than I expected. I had a blimp with a fan motor a few years ago and this is way better. The tail swishes back and fourth to make her go. And "autoswim" makes it even easier to play with and control. See the video to see the Angry bird in action.

To control her forward, press right then left, repeat, I call this swishing. You can press faster and faster and get into a rhythm. Press climb to make her point up. The control unit moves toward the back and changes the center of gravity, thus pointing the bird up. Genius! Now swish her or press autoswim and she climbs. Cool! Ok she's up, now press dive, and the control unit moves forward pointing the bird level or down if you press it long enough. If the control unit doesn't move, tighten the string, try again.

After you get it working press "autoswim" and watch her go. Stop autoswim after a little. I found that you can keep autoswim on and constantly press real fast or hold left to make her turn left during autoswim, same for right, but sometimes it won't do the command because the IR control doesn't hit the control unit. Mine turns right easier, in fact mine turned right all the time until I adjusted the motor placement a little to the left (to make it turn right less) by tightening the left rubber band.

You can balance her with the putty. I keep her a tiny bit less than neutral so she won't end up at the ceiling, but it doesn't matter, she works great in either case.

We got this for our little boy turning 9. It is so cool! Easy enough for the 5 year old to control and captivating to our whole family... Except our 2 year old. Don't get this for a two year old.

Looks like an exciting toy, especially watching the videos online. The first thing you need to do is the blowup the balloon. Of course, you just don't blow up the balloon with regular air, you need to bring it to a store to put helium into it, which is a little disappointing for excited kids after opening their present. You can bring it to any store that sell balloons. I would suggest to bring it to a dollar store that sell balloons. We don't have one close by so I brought it to the local Giant grocery. I was told the price depends on the size of the balloon. The Balloon is big, it's around 3 feet across, the lady asked me to pay four dollars.

It requires some assembly. It has instructions inside the box, but I suggest to watch the online videos which are very helpful. The bird has two pink styrofoam fins. We did not get a double-sided tape in the box, luckily I have some at home. But the fins fall off very easily during flight.

We thought it was defective when the tail did not move at first. But the first thing you need to do is to pair the controller with the pod assembly (shown in the video is the actual pairing instruction). Put batteries in the controller and stick the pod assembly on it to charge. After that, press and hold any button on the controller until it blinks. Now, you are ready for your maiden flight.

Anyway, it broke just after one day. The motor that makes the balloon goes up and down, just stopped working. I checked what's wrong with it making sure the strings are not entangled. Still, the motor refuse to budge forward, only backward. I also noticed that the helium leaks fast. At this rate, I would need to replenish the helium every three days.

Overall, I think it is an expensive toy for all the hassle and toy's longevity.

I bought a different air swimmer for my children about 2 years ago. The kids loved it and when I saw the Angry Birds version, I just had to try it out. We are big Angry Birds fans and I knew this toy would be perfect for us.

Pros:
-You can take this balloon to any grocery store that has a balloon shop to get it inflated.
-The directions provided were easy to follow. This was a big improvement over the original air swimmers we bought 2 years ago.
-It took only about 10 minutes to assemble and I had no extra help.
-The balloon charging station is part of the remote control. It doesn't get much easier than that!
-The remote control provides a compartment to keep the extra putty. Again - they've kept it simple.
-The balloon actually flies as shown on the video in the manufacturer's website! You will not be disappointed.
-We bring out the balloon any time the kids have a play date or a sleepover. It's a huge hit.

Cons: for once, I can't find anything negative to say about a product.

If you love watching your kids be mesmerized, I suggest you give this toy a try. I'm the mother of a 7 and a 9 year old. Both kids love it and flying this toy around your house doesn't get old.

I purchased 2 of these, They are fun, simple toys when they work. A waste of money when they do not. The first one worked as described which it should.
The second one did not work straight out of the box. I assembled everything as instructed, and once that was complete when I attempted to use this toy, the motor that controls climb and dive function did not work properly. You can hear the motor activate but the string that it is supposed to ride along is apparently disconnected somewhere inside the motor housing.
I contacted the manufacturer via e-mail as the instructions dictate, after one week I tried again. Not even a response. Sure, I got the automated we got your message and will contact you soon reply, but that was about 3 weeks ago, and nothing since. If they simply sent just the motor housing and string assembly I'd be perfectly happy with that but not even a response. Horrible.
