You have to buy your own helium...costs about £15 - £20 for a can!

...nice idea, just not worth it as you can't re-use the helium.

Its a legit site, item probably will come from china just like dealextreme items do. Will probably take 10 days to arrive.

Also its free delivery and they take paypal for your safety.

My son received one of these (including a bottle of gas), as a present last Christmas. Took about an hour or so of fiddling about putting it together... you have to stick on certain parts, build the tail etc. Not a complex procedure but definitely fiddly. We filled it with gas, adjusted the buoyancy by adding weight to the slider unit beneath the shark (adding weight if it floats up, taking weight out if it sinks). The weight is basically just blu-tac that you add but they supply it. I would say set-up time was definitely a few hours in total. Once it is assembled and inflated it is very big! My son must have played with it for.... oh, I'd reckon on about... 15 minutes! It's never seen the light of day since! Yeah it's a nice novelty item but the cost (especially considering you need to factor in the price of the gas), is, to my mind, just too expensive. The amusement factor lasts only a short time.

Just my tuppence worth. I didn't pay for it but if I had, I'd have been disappointed.

Yes i read putting it together can be fiddly. But why not watch the assembly video 2 on argos for full instructions:

By the way what size helium cannister did you have? and how many uses did you get out of it for the shark?
As I say, he only used it the once so I've no idea how long it would last or how many times it would refill the shark but this is the one he got: argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Okay, you can pick up a helium cannister the same size for £20 so i advise people to shop around if the want the cannister this size.
