Remote Control Shark Balloon | Air Swimmer Flying Fish Shark Review
The Remote Control Shark Balloon, aka the Air Swimmer flying fish, is not your every day great white shark. It is a helium filled rc balloon that is nearly 6 feet long, with a moving fin and tail. You can move it from up to 40 feet away, making it a very unexpected suprise to your friends. For kids and adults alike, a remote control helium filled shark is a fun way to play.
The Air Swimmer Flying Shark Balloon Toy has moving fins and tail, and can also turn a full 360 degrees. The company also makes a less terrifying Clownfish, as seen in the photos. Both of these rc blimp toys offer the same features and sizing as below.

Customer reviews of the Remote Control Flying Shark – Air Swimmer
Overall, reviewers enjoy this toy. It has been hard a hard toy to find, and on the manufacturers website, they have run out of stock after having record visitor days. It is so different, that it is just cool. A great white or clownfish flying around that is so large, is a new adventure for most rc enthusiasts.
Here are some reviews of the remote control shark balloon and what buyers had to say:
I have the shark and first off, it looks way cool. People who see it flying are intrigued and delighted. The only thing that could be improved would be the radio reception. Overall it is way fun though! hours of entertainment and soooo many great applications….read the complete review here
Overall, Reviewers rated this 3.5 stars out of 5 as an unusual Flying Shark Remote
The Remote Control Shark Balloon – Air Swimmer by X-Zylo is not your everyday toy. Something so unusual and unique is the kind of thing we all want to enjoy. This toy will attract attention where ever you take it! Whether you use it at parties, schools, or work, this great white flying shark toy will be a hit
It requires minimal maintenance, folds up when not in use, and is enjoyable for kids of all ages. But, there are some things we are not so sure of. Find out more below.
Although the RC remote on this takes some practice, if you have the space, you can move, climb and have the tail and fins flapping
The Air Swimmers shark toy received some good reviews, but not everyone was impressed by all the features. Some people felt that taking it for refills of helium was a hassle. Others thought it was too large, may escape outdoors, and would not be educational enough. Most were OK with this though, because they just want to play!
Lastly, the remote control range for the flying shark toy did not fully extend to 40 feet, but was still very fun. So, all in all, reviewers did not find it perfect, but enjoyed it just the same.
