HEXBUG Aquabots are little robotic fish that swim in the water and look like pet fish. They are powered by electro-magnetic propulsion and they dive up and down, changing directions to explore their environment.

We received a Clownfish Aquabot with its own Fishbowl and my son LOVES his little fish. It has been a great “first pet” experience for him and because it is portable he can actually take it with him wherever we go.

I like that we don’t have to worry about him forgetting to feed his fish or having the fish suddenly die. The fish does have batteries so we bought an extra set to have ready just in case.

The Aquabot is equipped with an automatic on and off sensor that activates when submerged in water. Here’s  a little video of my little guy putting it in the water for the first time.

The Box Contains:

  • 1 HEXBUG Aquabot
  • 1 Fishbowl
  • Two button cell batteries AG13 (LR44) are included in each fish
  • The Aquabot and fishbowl package is $14.99

What was your first pet growing up? Your child’s first?
