The box was a bit crumpled when it arrived, but the fish was unharmed and ready for action. My 4 and 6 year olds were very excited - so much so that I had to ask both of them to get off the table!
The Hexbug Aquabot doesn't move at all until it gets wet, when it immediately comes to life due to water sensors on each side of it's body.
Once in water the Aquabot flaps it's tail and off it goes. The Aquabot will change direction and dive deeper under water and then rise again without any interference. It's really quite quick, but very easy to catch, and as the tail is rubber it doesn't matter about it hitting anything, it won't hurt you or itself.
1 minute incidentally is about the length of time that the Zombie Aquabot needs to recharge his speciality - he glows in the dark. It's hard to take photo's of glow-in-the-dark, but hopefully that gives you an idea of just how impressively he does it, he's really bright!
We love the Hexbug Zombie Aquabot, it's great, a real fun toy that retails at around £7.99, so it's ideal as a Christmas stockingfiller and will delight any child. It will withstand a bit of rough treatment and isn't as delicate as it looks, and my 4 and 6 year olds absolutely love having it in the bath with them!
We were sent the Hexbug Zombie Aquabot for review.
