My kids were super excited when the HEXBUG Spider Micro Robotic Creature arrived in the mail. At first when I said hey kids the spider is here my daughter about freaked out thinking it was a real spider.
It comes in a clear plastic dome and is actually pretty neat looking. It already has batteries in it and is ready to be used. This is what hexbug has to say about it: The six legged spider features a 360 degree steering and LED forward eye allowing the user to maneuver it around objects and control precisely where it scurries. Its 4.5 inches long, 3.5 inches wide, 3 inches tall and only weighs 0.168 pounds.
Now this is what my son had to say: I think it is pretty cool remote control technology. He likes how it turns its head and walks in the same direction. The down side was all it does is walk. It can go up walls or anything and it has to be on a pretty flat smooth surface. His suggestion on making it even better would be to add a spy cam or voice activation. Overall he likes it and thinks they are on the right track with the design.
