What It Is

What It Is

The Hexbug Crab is the latest in Innovation First's lineup of crawling robotic bugs. Designed to move around like a real crab, the Hexbug Crab also reacts to light and sound. The Crab will hide in shaded areas or until a loud sound or exposure to light chases it out into the open. It also changes direction in reaction to sounds, such as you clapping your hands. The Hexbug Crab comes in five colors: red, indigo, green, black, and turquoise. It can be used with some Hexbug playsets.

Why It’s Fun

The Hexbug Crab makes a great addition to any kid's Hexbug collection. There's a lot of technology here—the sophisticated design of the robot both in its body and its robotics are what make Hexbugs so appealing and so realistic—but the Hexbug Crab is easy to use and fun to play with or carry around in the palm of your hand.

Who It’s For

The Hexbug Crab is for ages 8 and up.

What to Be Aware of

Two AG13 button cell batteries are included.
