I am looking for the name of a toy that we used to play with a lot when we were growing up.

These were toys that we played with in the late 70s and early 80s. There were ALL sorts of these toys and basically they consisted of a small container of water and you had two (usually) buttons at the bottom. Once these were pressed, it caused water pressure to move and the premise of the "game" was to move things (rings, balls, etc) onto sticks or in holes.
For the life of me, I can't remember the name of these games. I found one exactly what I am looking for here
, and they call them a "water game - triangles". This is what I am looking for, but I want to know a more generic name so it will help me do some online searching.
If anyone knows the names of these toys and when I might be able to source some new ones online, it would be great. My brother has a birthday coming up and it would be great if I could get him one of these as a gag gift.
