 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

What does every child want for Christmas? According to the famous toy store Hamley's, it's robotic fish!

Up there in Hamley's top ten of the toys children really, really want this Christmas is the Robo Fish — a water-activated toy which replicates a real fish. Submerge it in water and it imitates realistic swimming patterns — take it out and dry it and it goes to 'sleep'.

Robo Fish are available in a wide range of designs and colours to appeal to children and cost around a tenner each. They don't need feeding or cleaning and even come with a replacement set of batteries.

There's also a 'play set' available, which consists of a bowl and a robotic fish and costs around £20.

You can see Robo Fish in action on the video below:
