Introduce your child to the world of robotics with the Hexbug Original robot bug toy. This unique toy senses objects in its path and avoids them. The Hexbug Original robot can hear sounds like a hand clap, loud noise or table slap. Your child can control the direction the Hexbug micro robotic creatures take by making these sounds. The micro robot will keep moving forward until it hits an obstacle or hears a loud noise. After hearing the noise, the Hexbug robot comes back in a half circle then starts moving in a different direction. This robot bug toy has bump sensor feelers to help it avoid obstacles. It uses an included 1AG13 button battery.
