What are B.I.O. Bugs?
They're Bio-mechanical Integrated Organisms -- a new breed of
artificial intelligence! Take command of the B.I.O. Bugs using
the hand controller, or just leave them to roam independently.
The longer a B.I.O. Bug stays alive, the more they learn from
exploration and interaction.
Infrared technology gives these oversize creatures
awesome lifelike powers. For example, their transmitters work
as honing beacons. Of course, they also "snack" on any
household item that emits infrared technology, like the TV remote,
microwave or fluorescent lights. Stretching 16 inches long and
standing 4 inches off the ground, these B.I.O. Bugs will frighten
the entire neighborhood!

Reviews: I bought these for my adult
sisters, and brothers-in-law. Got 2 Yellow and 2 Blue, and gave
the men blue, and the women yellow. When they opened the boxes
they were like 5 year olds. They popped in the batteries, and
spent the next 6 hours battling each other all over my mothers
Kitchen floor. This was, bar none, the best gift I've ever given.
Everyone loved them, and now my Mother and Father want a pair
so they can join in the fun.
