Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Air Swimmer Clown Fish (Toy)
I bought one of these for a birthday present with the intention of bringing it to a large function room I was holding my Husband's b'day party in. On the day of his b'day I gave it to him as a challenge to put it together. He found the instructions on YouTube the easiest to follow. It still took about 45 minutes with someone there to help when necessary. We filled it with helium that I had bought from the local supermarket, a bottle is about £18* and the fish takes approx half the bottle.Balancing the fish was probably the most time consuming and trickiest part of the construction. Once all together everyone had great fun floating it around the home. At the party the following night approx. 120 children from 3 years up to 50 took it in turns to play with it all night long, it was played with non stop for 7 hours and survived to be taken home. After a week I got fed up with how much room it takes up in the house so inserted a tube to release the helium and have packed it away for another day. The tape that holds the controls on the fish do peel of on a regular basis but they are easy enough to just press back on. Our fish has had some seriously heavy use but was well worth it!
*The helium bottle size was to blow up 30 x 9" balloons.
