That last minute Christmas gift

A friend has introduced me to a new toy.  I think Flying Fishes could replace toy trains as the best gift under the tree.  Except, of course, it won’t actually be under the tree…

Reviews so far:  Amazon has posted more than three thousand reviews with an average 5 star rating.  Three adults that I know have ordered at least one.  One friend has ordered four.   So far no in-vivo reviews.  They will no doubt have to wait until after Christmas.  My 8-year-old nephew, on the other hand, laconically responded that the on-line reviews thus far suggest they don’t live up to their promised hype.

Here in our ancient Cambridgeshire village, my husband is fantasizing walking the fish along with the serious dog-walkers of the day.  I wouldn’t miss going along for the world.

But what do you with a flying fish after that?

  2. K – You can see the video on Flying Fish by double-clicking on those words in red in the first paragraph of this post. Alternatively, you can go to which will get you to the same place. If nothing else, it will make you laugh. I think the open position on AngelFish may be delayed for some time yet, don’t you?
