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.

The robotic creature that reacts to touch and sound
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.

"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."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"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."
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.

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".
This item would be amazing if it worked properly. This one fall over to the side and cannot get itself back up.
Even with a falling crab, here's something to stand on. Our 100% satisfaction guarantee is steady reassurance of good things to come. We contacted our customer promptly. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for details.
