Water Talkies are devices which make talking underwater possible.[1] They were invented by Richie Stachowski, Jr. in 1995 (at age 10).[citation needed]

The Water Talkie is a colorful, cone-shaped device that amplifies voices underwater for up to 15 feet. What started as one product turned into a company producing water toys "made by a kid for kids" - a line of eight pool toys.[2]

Rich Stachowski won the 1999 Entrepreneur of the Year Award[which?] (the youngest ever) for this invention.[3]
