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.

This little gadget costs around $50.  At least we still have to walk to get into the pool - so far!  Thanks for stopping by.
