NCS Product Synopsis
   Takara Tomy presents the 'Robo Fish' which is a mechanical aquatic toy which swims around a tank like a fish by flapping its fins and swishing its tail and features a communication function. Takara Tomy A.R.T.S exhibited the toy at the International Toy show in Tokyo, Japan, last month and the company started preorders this week. The battery-powered Robo Fish is available for preorder in four types as follows:

 Clown Fish
» Aulonocara (Cichlid)

    When the fish aren't swimming around a tank, they may be mounted on a blue pedestal which is included inside the blister packaging. Preorders are welcome to ship
in late September 2012 at JPY1500 or US$25.90 each.
