Does anyone remember those little plastic boats you used to get in breakfast cereal boxes?

You used to open them up, bung in a spoon of baking soda and then watch them scoot across the kitchen sink. Fun, for about two minutes.

I remember those little boats wasn't there a little submarine too?

They were plastic divers with elephantitus is one leg. At the bottom of the big leg was a metal cap under which you poured the baking soda. The divers would dive and surface and dive and surface in a pool, I guess, until the soda was gone.
