Product Description

The build-it-yourself line of HEXBUG VEX Robotics fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing kids to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. The Spider kit has over 350 snap together pieces, 6 legs, IR distance sensor, LED module and interlocking gears. It walks forward or in reverse while avoiding obstacles, and changes directions by spinning its head 360 degrees. There are two drive modes, manual driver controlled via remote control or autonomous. Autonomous drive mode is customizable with 64 different programming variations. To program, simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated.

We put this together and took it apart a few times trying to get it to work. The head rotates but the legs don't move right and it forces the gears out of alignment. Very disappointing since it was my son was very excited about it.

    The product is great. What I love most about this robot is that it can be as simple as following the inductions or they can create new things with the parts over and over.

        from Sandiego

        Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® VEX Robotics Construction Set - Spider:

        It doesn't walk on any surface at all
        It's completely useless
        A dead spider is just as entertaining
        I had to go on u tube just to figure out how to make it work
        I had to give it a star just to get my review published but it deserves no star

        Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® VEX Robotics Construction Set - Spider:

        I gifted this robot for my 8 year old son for Christmas, he was very excited, spent couple hours putting the pieces together. At the last he realized that the motor/brain is not working. Disappointed with the quality of the product, and a bad experience for the kid.

            My 9 yr old daughter was so excited about the Christmas gift but we couldn't even get past the second page of the instruction booklet because the 45 degree angled parts were not molded correctly and the pieces wouldn't stay connected.

            it was fun to assemble toghter.
            and it took time to figure out to put together with the moving part such as neck
            part and motor.

            This is a great learning toy in my opinion. I can't say how good the actual product is, since my grand-nephew (10 yrs old) wants to exchange it for a remote control car instead! I think it would be better if they made it a more exciting robot, maybe like a transformer, or something cool-looking, with sword fighting capabilities, lol.

                Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® VEX Robotics Construction Set - Spider:

                My son and daughter, who is in STEM at her school, saw this product and really wanted to build this robot. It states it is a STEM related project. The instructions are poorly laid out and are only visual aids. They are hard to follow and parts are incorrectly labeled. I have no idea how an 8 year old could put this together. My husband and I had to do much of the work and even after much internet research this toy still does not operate properly. I would never recommend this item to anyone, and harshly criticize this company for making such a poorly put together product.
