Swim Along Mantra Ray: Freshwater Friend

Move over goldfish - the Swim Along Mantra Ray is here! The Swim Along Mantra Ray is the perfect freshwater friend for the kiddies. Watch as he glides and dives underwater in his super-sleek hydrodynamic body. The tiny holes in his body allow him to dive to depths of 8 feet.

This little guy is pretty talented too! After all, nothing is too difficult for Ray! Swim along with him as he shows off his many fancy tricks and underwater maneuvers.  The consummate swimmer, forward and backward movements are a breeze for Mantra Ray. Watch him turn left and right without batting an eye. The kids will flip over his loop-to-loops and fun barrel rolls too. Control his every move, up to 6 feet away, with the easy-to-use remote control. And even better - the remote is waterproof up to 3 feet. He has three LED panels that glow underwater for swimming in the dark.

And besides his good looks and super talents, the Swim Along Mantra Ray can be powered by not one, but two different ways. Use the rechargeable battery which is housed in a sealed, waterproof compartment. A full charge, which takes about 4 hours, powers the Mantra Ray for about half an hour of diving action. The rechargeable battery, however, is sold separately. You can also use 4 AA batteries, which are not included in the purchase. The remote control uses a 9-volt battery, not included.

Constructed out of stainless steel, PVC and ABS, the super cool Manta Ray measures about 18 x 10 x 3 and weighs just under 7 pounds. For freshwater use only, the Mantra Ray retails for under $120.
