Hexbug Aquabot 2.0 is my kind of Pet Fish

I grew up with an aquarium in our home and have always loved to watch fish and find them calming.  Now that I have my own family, we've had various fish friends over the years.   The thing about fish is that they are (usually) a heartbreak waiting to happen.  Fish don't seem to have a long life span.  Now there's a new fish in town - Hexbug Aquabot 2.0. 

This is my kind of pet fish!

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 changed 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, yet, without all the messy clean up. 

My son has had a great time watching the Hexbug Aquabot swim around it's bowl.  I think it is pretty darned cute, too.  We especially like that it lights up and swishes about.  The automatic shut off feature is smart and a good way to save the battery life.  When we had real fish our cat was constantly harassing the poor thing and it made us laugh to see the cat doing the same thing with the Hexbug fish.

Hexbug Aquabot is an affordable fun toy for kids of all ages.  It comes with the plastic fish bowl and one robotic fish for only $14.99.
