I must admit that I've wondered that myself... ...I assumed that all would be explained when it arrived... ...I'm working from home this morning (meeting the builder who is going to (a) look at our wooden flow that was damaged by the water leak and (b) make me cry when he tells me how much it's going to cost to fix it)... ... but I'm hoping my shark will arrive at my office this afternoon...

I don't have kids and my wife does NOT agree with my theory that "It's never too late to have a happy childhood". So Father Christmas is not likely to bring me one of these. Bugger.....

I'm curious. How does it maintain neutral buoyancy? Is it just the right weight for it's volume or do you have to tune it with some sort of small weights?

Also, just to point out that this would make an ideal Christmas present for your kids because (a) they will LOVE it and (b) you get to play with it :-)

This reminds me of my "I just missed becoming rich and famous… again…" blog (http://bit.ly/uakt55) Whoever invented this has got to be making a lot of money, and it's really not all that complex when you come to think about it...
