I would rather pay $19 at Amazon

Purchased this item when it was initially released (came out with a fair amount of hype after winning "best toy" awards). If it's not obvious (probably is to everyone other than me), this is a novelty item that - even if it works properly - really didn't hold anyone's attention more than a day or two.

Bought the clownfish and the shark. The difficulty with controlling the toys makes any real "chasing" impossible, and the overall quality seemed pretty low - though some of the delicate construction might be due to the fact it has to be low in weight. Adjusting the toys to make them buoyancy neutral in the air is pretty much impossible especially when you also want to make the item pitch neutral

Overall, I'd think a $10 would be a good "splurge" price for this. Otherwise, regret will likely take over.
