Description

Watch out for the motorized creepy crawly HEXBUG Scorpion! Scare your friends as it scuttles around the room, exploring every area it can get to. With the claws helping it ricochet off of walls and objects, and the realistic bouncing action of the tail, you’ll think it’s actually alive! Unsettle those around you with the scurrying Scorpion's bouncing tail and free-swinging front claws. This mechanical bug rebounds off of walls and darts around the room.

Q: how far away can the remote be

submitted by Gary - 3 months ago
  • A: Hi there - The HEXBUG Scorpion is not remote controlled. This toy is an autonomous robot that begins running as soon as switched on.

Mom of three - 13 days ago
Excited to gift this to one of my son’s friends for her birthday! We received the red color, which is super cute! It appears as though one of the antennae doesn’t move though, and the packaging came cracked (sharp edges), so unfortunately we will have to take it to the store to exchange. I hope they still have red!

Tail broke off instantly and keeps breaking in pieces. It's a great idea and would love it if it wasn't so fragile.

I love flipping the switch and watching this robot scurry across the floor at its intended target, usually my cat Kaja. Works on hardfloor surfaces, or carpet. Really cool!

Batteries died in an hour. My kids loved it but the batteries died right away. There's no remote so it just moves forward but it looks pretty cool the way it moves.

Such a fun gift to give to someone. It reminds me of something from the movie alien and starts to get creepy but in a silly, fun way. I think everyone would enjoy it. PS: Fun for use in pranks.

The hexbug scorpion is pretty awesome! My son got one for Christmas and he plays with it non stop. The tail comes apart but it is easy to put back together. They don’t do so well on carpet though but other than that they are super fun and cool to watch them crawl all over the place.

Within the first hour of playing with it, one of the legs stopped working. I saw that the screw came out, so I took it apart and hooked it all back together where the parts should be. But then the same exact screw came out again. My son said he was ok with one leg being broken, but then a second leg did the same thing about half an hr later. Needless to say, I’m taking it back to exchange and hope we just picked a bad bug.
