Description

The HEXBUG Black Widow is the new eight-legged robotic creature that is a robotic, electromechanical marvel. The Black Widow can crawl along in a creepy fashion or scoot quickly about. It features 360-degree steering, an LED eye and under-glow, creepy sounds, and a 2.4 GHz remote control. The remote control enables the user to operate a virtually endless number of bugs independently or at the same time (each sold separately). As the largest member of the current HEXBUG robotic creature family, the intricacy of its internal mechanisms and eight-legged crawling motion is simply fascinating to operate and watch.

Q: Can the HEXBUG Black Widow be use outside, like on grass?

submitted by IS - 3 months ago
  • A: Hi there - The HEXBUG Black Widow is best used on dry surfaces and is recommended for indoor use. The HEXBUG Black Widow could be used on hard packed dirt, but things like grass or other debris may interfere with the legs. Please also note that the product is not waterproof or weatherproof.

Huge warning to anyone that buys this, this will ONLY crawl on flat tile/hard wood floors that are NOT in an incline. This will absolutely get stuck in just 2 steps on carpet / blankets / bedding. I had bought this to sneak up on my wife and scare her... It runs great on flat surfaces not at an angle, but just gets stuck over and over. It looks great, it feels like quality build, but the sounds are also horrible. Sounds like a car wreck moaning. I wouldn't recommend this for all terrain.

It’s cool, but not very sturdy. I’m just waiting for it to break. It doesn’t climb even up onto a rug. 🤦🏼♀️

This is for a Christmas gift, so since it’s not Christmas just yet I can’t give a full review. I ordered this through Target Drive-up, so I was a little bothered that the box was crushed, but spider is not damaged. I’m happy with it.

My 10 year old really likes the lights and sounds and the variable speed and direction. He also likes the appearance and creepiness of the way it moves. It takes about one hour to charge, but he reports you can get a good amount of playtime out of it.
