They can dive as far as 5' in the pool and are also fun to take in the bathtub. They use an AA battery and move through the water in unpredictable directions. They each have a light-up nose that never goes dim. Turbo Subs sit in a display box of four different styles, three of each. They are 6.5" by 3.5" by 2".
— “I would have to say, for this year, the surprise was summer items, pool toys … It’s probably because of the heat. MindWalk was the big-selling manufacturer,” said Lance Ghulam, manager of Handlebar Toys in Lafayette, Calif.
— “Basic beach and sand toys. Parents are trying to move away from video games,” was what Emily Holmes, executive assistant to the president for Ambassador Toys in San Francisco, had to say about surprises in her store.
— “Our Turbo Subs are part of our Super Subbie product line which uses patented random motion technology,” Denise Sanger, VP of operations at MindWalk USA, told TDmonthly. “This allows our Turbo Sub to move through the water in unpredictable directions, diving down 5' in the pool or just scooting around in the bathtub. In addition, the Turbo Sub has an always-on light in the nose, which makes it fun to play with in the dark, too.”
