Review: HEXBUG Aquabot 2.0

August 17, 2014

These new water-born Angelfish and Hammerhead Sharks are packed with smart fish technology, added sensors and an inner glow that makes them appear more alive than ever before!

The Aquabot 2.0 swimmers are equipped with hi-tech sensors that can wake a sleeping fish in three different ways! This patent-pending technology enables users to wake a sleeping fish by simply running their fingers through the water, touching the fish or even tapping on the outside of the fish bowl, which will cause the once-dormant sea creature to come to life and take off swimming!

These underwater dwellers also exhibit an inner pulsating LED glow that illuminates the Angelfish and Hammerhead Shark and brings them to life in a fresh-new way. Powered by electro-magnetic propulsion and an automatic on and off sensor that activates when submerged in water, these aquatic fish propel around to explore their environment, swimming, diving and changing directions.

After five minutes without activity, the Aquabots will go into sleep mode to conserve battery life. All of these design elements were carefully chosen by our engineers to get children to think about the science behind the robot. Now kids can truly experience the fun of having a pet fish collection, without all the messy clean-up!

HEXBUG Aquabot 2.0

Due to allergies, we are a live pet-free home.  We have had real fish before, but I think the Aquabot kept my kids attention longer than the real thing!  Even my 19 month old loves running into his sisters room in the morning and tapping on the bowl to wake up the fish.  This is a a wonderful gift for kids that love animals and fish and the price point is amazing.  This is a really unique toy that I would definitely recommend for a gift; especially all of those birthdays that seem to happen nearly weekly once kids become school age!

The Aquabot 2.0 is for ages 3 years and up, and comes in ten colors.  It can be purchased at Toys R Us for $12.99.
