Hexbug Aquabot 2.0 Review

Hexbugs have become a favourite tiny toy around here.  My kids love setting up their battle habitat to watch them "fight" just as much as they enjoy watching the tiny "bugs" skitter along the kitchen floor while they hop away from them!  (And torment the dog.  And me while I'm trying to cook dinner.)

The new Hexbug Aquabot is a new way to have tons of fun with Hexbugs, only in water!  

About Hexbug Aquabot 2.0
The new water-born Angelfish and Hammerhead Shark are  packed with smart fish technology, added sensors and an inner glow that makes them appear more alive than ever before!  The hi-tech sensor allows you to wake the sleeping fish by tapping on the tank.  Each fish comes with its own bowl and removable background stickers.  

When we first opened our fishy and plunked him into his bowl of water, he swam around slowly and then stopped.  I panicked for a second, but then remembered we had a brand new set of power cells (batteries) to add to the fish.  Once we changed out the batteries, the fish was really able to move!  My kids get a kick out of it.  The fish now sits on the kitchen table and they've been taking turns playing with it, recording video of it and...well... talking to it. lol.  I don't believe they've given him a name yet.  It's neat to see how tapping on the glass bowl will "wake it up" -- A fun little toy!  I think it'd be super neat in the tub and can't wait to toss it in one day while the kids are bathing, and wait for the screams and laughter!
