The Diver

This toy works by the conversion of potential energy (that is stored in a spring when held compressed by a suction mechanism) into kinetic energy. The direction of the diving figure (made from durable malleable rubber) can be manipulated by changing positions of the diverís body and twisting it about. This toy is very simple to use, so itís suitable for children 6 and up. Construction cost would be around $15 to $20 dollars.
