Xia Xia Set from Cepia

Cepia LLC, the company behind the Zhu Zhu robotic hamsters, is looking to create another holiday toy hit with Xia-Xia, a line of robotic hermit crabs. The shells on the little crabs are removable. The crabs do wacky walks when its claws are pressed. Xia-Xia will launch with four crabs: Bimini, Turks, Trinidad and Tobago.

Xia-Xia hermit crabs, playsets and accessories range in price from $5.99 to $19.99. They will arrive in stores in October.
