Methodically, eight legs work in harmony to create a ballet style “tippy-toe” movement. Similar to its cousin from Alaska, the sun’s rays will make it scurry along to safe passage. If you were thinking about dipping its legs in melted butter and garlic, you’d be disappointed with a mouth full of high density plastic. Walking King Crab is the next logical kit if you have already assembled theSuper Solar Racing Car (OWI-MSK671) or the Frightened Grasshopper (OWI-MSK670). It is powered by a mini solar cell (included) and demonstrates alternative energy principles. No batteries required and less than thirty-five parts.

My 8 year old wanted this toy. She saved up her money. I was worried because there were a lot of little pieces. She needed some help with the tiny screws, but otherwise she was able to do this herself. It has held up to everything we've put it through, so far. It's been great to have hands on with solar power and one of it's drawbacks - shade.
