HEXBUG Strandbeast

Spark your little one's interest in science and robotics with the HEXBUG Strandbeast that features a see-through design, which exposes the mechanisms needed for movement. The HEXBUG's intricate eight-legged walking mechanism allows for realistic and graceful movements that look organic rather than robotic in nature. The two-channel infrared remote control gives your child control over both sides of the micro robot's legs separately for greater independence and command over the creature's forward and backward motion and turning. The remote also features the ability to control two robots at the same time (one included), either independently or in unison like a robotic bug army. Styles and colors are selected randomly at the time of shipment based on availability.

Product Highlights

  • Graceful control and extension of the micro robot's eight legs give it an organic feel
  • Your child can use the remote to control each side of the Strandbeast's legs independently for complete control over forward and backward motion and turning
  • Two channel-remote can be used to control two robots separately or in unison (one included)
  • Inspired by Dutch physicist-turned-artist Theo Jansen, the Strandbeast's translucent color allows your little one to see and consider the science behind the robot's movements
  • CPSIA-compliant design for safety

What's Included

        Comments about HEXBUG® Infrared Strand Beast - (Colors/Styles Vary):

        Poor product design. Either one of the buttons on the remote stopped working or the hexbug itself broke in less than 1 minute. From my experience all the Hexbug parts and bugs are of a poor design. The tubes that it is suppose to travel thru are equally poorly designed. They're difficult to take apart, for a child impossible, for me it was real tough and you keep thinking you'll hurt your hands. They get stuck in the tubes, around bends. It's a great toy idea, poorly executed.
