Bandai Micro Sea Life Toys Turns Your Water Bottle Into An Artificial Aquarium

Ok, I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sure what these new micro toys from Bandai are all about. They come in various colors and species, including a jellyfish, squid and an octopus, and they’ll supposedly autonomously swim and float around in a bottle of water, providing minutes and minutes of entertainment. Given their size and the fact that they retail for about $6 each in Japan right now, I’m going to assume they’re not that technologically advanced, but at the same time there’s plenty of room to cram a small electric motor and battery inside one of these, so maybe there is some potential novelty here.

    It appears to be similar to toys from the 70's and earlier. There is no electronics or motors involved. The creatures move up and down because of changes in water pressure when the bottle is squeezed.
