My little boy, Blake is 6 and loves anything robotic and he's also a walking animal fact book! He is really into Teksta Scorpion and I have to agree, this is a brilliant toy!
Firstly Teksta Scorpion doesn't come with batteries but once you put these in, Teksta Scorpio is pretty simple to start using - there is an instruction manual but honestly it's quite intuitive to use.
You move your hand to move the scorpion, for example, when you tip your hand upwards, Teksta Scorpion will move backwards. I have to say it takes a few goes to get used to but is actually simple and natural.
Teksta Scorpion comes with a little pod for him/her to capture but actually we found that the pincers could capture many objects.
Remember I mentioned that Blake is a bit of a walking animal fact book? well he was very quick to point out that a scorpion is an arachnid and that teksta scorpion should have 8 legs and not 6!
If your friends also have testa scorpions you can battle each other (up to 6 scorpions at a time)
