Experience a true marvel of mechanical electronics!
Scuttling towards you on eight lithe legs, you can't help but smile at its smooth, realistic motion. Then, suddenly, its head spins 360 degrees to look straight at you with its gleaming LED eye!
Don't worry. Those goosebumps you're feeling are completely normal.
Grab onto the intuitive controller and immediately the power of this bug becomes yours - Maneuver easily around objects. Control precisely where it scurries.
With the dual-frequency controller, you can even control multiple spiders independently or at the same time!
Then, once you get the hang of the controls, it's time to have loads of fun! - Spook your mom by making it crawl creepily around the corner. Imagine a futuristic scenario where robotic spiders rule the earth!
(Suddenly you realize, this would be a perfect prop for a crazy sci-fi movie!)

Or, at least, your most merciless pet!

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 hexbug spider has exceeded our expectations. First, it's just very cool to watch it move, it really looks lifelike in its movements. Both my 8 year old and 6 year old daughters LOVE playing with this toy! They have another hexbug and set up races and obstacle courses for them to move through. The bug doesn't move incredibly fast, but it's definitely not boringly slow either. Be aware that there are only two channels for the remotes to operate on, and our two different bugs operate on the same channels, so if you have more than two bugs going at the same time there might be some interference, even if they are different types of bugs.
We have only had it for a few days, so I can't really speak to battery life or durability, other than they are still going after a few days of vigorous use. I would highly recommend this product!
