From Zuru, here we have their amazing collection of Finding Dory inspired Robo Fish! The initial wave of characters, including Nemo, Marlin, Dory and Bailey (as well a couple playsets which I'll also be showing here soon) was released back in late April/early May. More recently, "Little Dory" (aka toddler Dory or baby Dory) was added to the assortment. It's really a very cool line of toys! I'm hoping for even more characters in the future.
How they work-
Each plastic character is battery operated (batteries and extra batteries included) and water activated. As soon as the fish hits the water, the carbon sensors will kick in and trigger the lifelike swimming movement. On the flip side, the fish will stop moving when taken out of the water. No need for any kind of ON/OFF switch! It's really neat how it all works.
If any of the fish swim for an extended period of time, they will "fall asleep." Just tap the container, whether it be a fish tank, bowl, etc., to start the motion up again. Each character is right around three to four inches in size and retails for $11.99 (Bailey being the exception; he is about seven inches long and retails for $18.99).

You may have noticed that I didn't include Nemo in this post- keen eye. That's because Nemo was also released as a pack-in with the Marine Life Institute playset, which I purchased and will be showing here soon, so I opted out of getting the single pack release (since they're exactly the same).
I was testing these guys out and recording videos of them in action last night and I'm happy to report that they work really well. As soon as my new computer comes, I'll have the completed video up on my YouTube channel. Stay tuned for that!
