My Take on the Product
I have used HEXBUG products in the past and my kids and I have loved them in the past and this new product was no different. The new HEXBUG adds a new dimension to the HEXBUG universe, an underwater dimension. What was fun about this Aquabot was that I decided to bring it to work and for all of the time that I had it there, everyone has been in complete awe. Everyone wanted to play with this and it was a great conversation starter.
The fish for me was fun because I really cannot have any pets at work so this was perfect as I could have it swim anytime that I wanted without having to feed the fish or having to even change the water in the tank.
The only thing that would be cool in the future in my perspective would be to have a remote control!
All-in-all this was a great addition to the HEXBUG line and one that I would recommend to all!
