Move Over, Flipper – The TadPole Pool Scooter is Here!
If you've been looking for just the right gizmo for your backyard pool, hang onto your life jacket! The SunSplash TadPole is a motorized device designed to take children on all sorts of undersea adventures. Who knows - maybe your kids will bump into SpongeBob or Ariel! Not only is the TadPole Motorized Pool Scooter pretty darn cute, it's extremely easy to use too. Just hang on, aim and go! The TadPole propels your little swimmer through the water with ease.
The TadPole works both above and below water and can dive to the depths of the
sea pool, up to 15 feet. Designed for children 9 and up who weigh less than 140 pounds, the device swims along at speeds up to 2 MPH. Powered by a heavy duty, 12 volt sealed rechargeable battery, the TadPole will scoot along for about an hour when fully charged. And even better - the charger is also included. The unit is compact and weighs less than 8 pounds. A special safety feature is included just in case something obstructs the propeller.
After all, who needs boring flippers when you can glide through the water with ease with an electronic gizmo kids are sure to love? The SunSplash TadPole Motorized Pool Scooter retails for about $100 and is for pool use only. It goes without saying; younger children should be supervised when using this product.
