Thanks to HEXBUG, I was sent a HEXBUG Crab to review here on At Home Moma.
The HEXBUG Crab is a robotic creature that reacts to light and sound. You simply clap your hands near the Crab, and it reacts to the sound and changes directions. If you create a dark space for the HEXBUG Crab, it will stop moving. It comes in 5 different colors including Red, Indigo, Green, Turquiose, and Grey. Batteries are included. This product is recommended for children ages 8 and up.
My kids and I got to try out a Grey HEXBUG Crab, and even though, they are under 8, they still thought it was pretty neat. My son even took it to school for show and tell.

I knew that the product reacted to sound, but did not realize that it reacted to light and dark until I started writing the review and was looking up the product specs. If you cast a shadow over it, (must be completely dark) it will actually stop moving, and once you expose it to light again, it will start back up. Visit hexbug.com/crab to check out all of the product details.
Light and Dark experiment, make sure you turn up the volume.
I must say what really amazes me is how life like this product is, and I think my dogs are still trying to figure out what kind of animal it is.
