KREEPIE KRAWLIES combines the magic of augmented reality with the tactile engagement of physical interaction. This prank toy distracts "victims" with an augmented-reality bug demonstration, making a variety of creepy critters appear on the subject's hand through the lens of a smartphone. Meanwhile, the demonstrator secretly places a physical bug replica on the back of the subject's hand! When the augmented reality demo is over, the subject believes they've seen everything – until they turn their hand around to find a very real looking bug waiting for them! The "gotcha" moment typically results in boisterous surprise and excitement, making the product great for "reaction" videos, social gatherings, and playground settings.
Requires a smartphone to download the free app. Intended for ages 8 years old and up.
