Angry Birds Air Swimmers, versions of the popular remote-controlled toy with Rovio's ubiquitous gaming franchise, are now available in stores, the Bluewater Trading Company announced today.

Four characters are available: the Red Bird, Red Space Bird, Blue Bird and Black Bird. As you can see in the promotional video above, the Air Swimmers seem particularly useful for pranksters' shenanigans — like screwing with people who are just trying to go about their daily lives.

In order to produce the remote-controlled inflatable birds, the Bluewater Trading Company licensed Angry Birds from developer Rovio Entertainment as well as the Air Swimmers toys produced by the William Mark Corporation. The Angry Birds Air Swimmers run on the William Mark Corporation's "turbo" technology, which provides an auto-flapping tailfin and other upgrades.

Each of the four Angry Birds Air Swimmers costs $49.99, although Toys R Us is currently selling them for $34.99. A set of three non-moving Bad Piggies balloons is also available for $9.99.
