The perfect pet for kids and right at home alongside those at the office!
The mini-robot Hexbug Crab will crawl its way into your affections.

"Feelers" on the crabs legs are actually sensors that help it maneuver around obstacles.

Shy around noise, Hexbug Crab scuttles away from loud noises. More highly evolved than its robotic bug cousins, Hexbug Crab uses its light sensors to move. When he discovers he's in a dark space, Hexbug Crab is content to hang out incognito. If a light shines and he knows he's been discovered, he's on the move again, just like a real crab.

    "This little crab is different than the typical items you find in every Walmart or Target that requires no thought for the person using it. When given to my son, it's uniqueness peaked his interest. The design is interesting to him and he seems to like the fact that he can see more of what's going on with the parts of it in the sense of understanding how it works. It's really small so he doesn't play with it as much as he would had it been bigger and easier to manipulate."

    "Just the crawling and tickling feeling on the hand would be a useful tool to a child that has a sensory problem."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "The HexBug Crab was a gift for my 8 year old Autistic son and his brother who does not have Autism. My autistic son was very interested in this toy. He loved the way it moved and would change direction when prompted. In fact they both slept with their new toys that night. He has always had a fascination with how things work. This toy gave him a look at a crab which he normally would not see and a reference for how a crab moves around. The mechanics of the toys were of great interest to him. His younger brother began walking like a crab for days."

    Hexbug Crab
    Posted 1/30/2014

    We gave this to my grandson for his 6th birthday. He was very excited when he opened it. He was playing with it in a careful manner and a very small pin on one of the legs came out. With some difficulty my husband was able to put it back in. When he tried to use it again the crab kept tipping over.

    Fun little guy
    Posted 1/9/2014

    My 5-year-old wore out the battery on this in about three days. (Buy extra batteries.) The crab has limited action, but it is responsive to its environment, which intrigued my kids (5, 7). They shade it, clap at it, to see how the crab will react. It's definitely engaging and interactive. Like all Hexbugs, it's very small (fits in your palm) and a bit fragile. But overall, a very neat, interactive "first robot".

    Hard to control and get this robot to respond as advertised, so the recipient lost interest.

    Robotic Crab
    Posted 11/30/2013

    The crab is cute and does work well. However it is too expensive for what I received. It's very small... Keeping it because grandson thinks it's cool.
