Think Geek Air Swimmers Shark Review and $50 Giveaway Birthday Bash







For my son's birthday we went to the Aquarium by the Bay in San Francisco and I knew we needed to get him some cool ocean toys to play with when he got home. We looked around at figurines and plush toys that we cute but we found a WOW item that we had to have for him at ThinkGeek.com the super cool Air Swimmers Flying R/C Sea Life.

You do need to have your shark inflated with helium. Easy to do at home with a balloon kit or at a local grocery store or florist.

Sharks at your birthday party! How cool is that!


We have seen the Air Swimmers at the mall and on tv but did not expect it to be as cool as it really is! You really do have a big shark swimming through your house. My son loves the Shark Air Swimmer and can even control him. My husband and I have been having a blast making it chase my mother in law and swimming near one another while were busy. There was even a shark attack on Thanksgiving as I came out of my office lol.

At times I would make the shark fly higher than normal to keep my son from beating up the shark lol

I kept saying Da-dun Dun-dun lol

Even my son as little as he is could control the shark and make him swim through the house.


This is one of the few toys that is a cool idea that lives up to the hype around it. It was a bit time consuming to put together when you have a kid standing there waiting for it so I suggest putting it together before hand and then swimming it right over to who ever is getting this cool gift.



I have noticed there are less and less of them available in stores. Think Geek has them online along with hundreds of other awesome gifts. Many of the adult "toys" are now on our Holiday Wish list! The Clearance section is full of great geeky finds for anyone on your gift list.
