The Disney spin on the classic Robo Fish is very cool, and the video really shows you just how these play. Carbon switches on the side are water-activated or can be touched to start the action. When the fish stops swimming, a gentle tap should be all you need to "wake them up."
Bonus: Each Robo Fish comes with an extra set of the tiny batteries, and that's a plus. Of all the toys we have here, those "button cell" LR44 batteries are usually something I just don't have in my battery drawer. Kudos to Zuru for including extra!
What to watch out for: The one thing I need to recommend (and this goes for any Robo Fish, or the Swimming Mermaids) is that you makes sure the kids don't pull the tail off. The tail is the key to the swimming action, and so far so good here - but our youngest specifically has a bad habit of ripping off the tails and losing them, rendering the toy useless. From one parent to some others, just letting you know.
