I bought this for my cat Daisy, as I saw a cat playing with one in a clip on U tube. This was so much better than I expected, it's so realistic, it's creepy, it really does scuttle just like a bug, and my carpet was no obstacle for it as it run away. I'm pretty sure Daisy is going to love her new Christmas present this year.

The scarab was great fun, it scuttled around the room happily enough, quite impressive for a tiny thing. The only problem was the item was stated to be 11x8.4x6.3cm, but upon arrival it seemed miniscule, and was in fact 8x6x4, not really subsantial enough for an entire Christmas present. For one of a collection definitely a must have.

I bought this item as a present for someone else for Christmas. I wasn't sure what to expect but, when switched on, it scurries along, appearing to randomly change direction. The main problem I have with the purchase is that it only lasted a few minutes before it ground to a halt, when apparently the batteries were exhausted.

Have mixed feelings about this product. I ordered it & arrived very quickly , scuttled around the floor very quickly, doing crazy flips when it bumped into things & broke within about 5 mins of leaving the box, one leg locked & froze totally. The company replied to my email v promptly, and replaced the item on return of the original, so they've been great, (although cost £4 to return item) but doesn't get played with much as seems quite fragile. It is a fun creature though, and runs around crazily. My son took it to a show & tell at school, the girls all screamed & boys thought it was awesome.

After a few days this stopped working and then the battery blow up and powder everywhere. God job my nephews parent found this before he did as this could have been very dangerous for a child. I've ordered more hex bug stuff for his Xmas present can only hope this doesn't happen again. Hesitant to actually give him it now.

Bought for my 7-year old son who loves these things. Horribly realistic but also very clever. It scuttles everywhere noisily and even gets itself back on its feet when turned on its back. I shudder but my son giggles non-stop!

My little brothers (2 and 5 years old) had a different style hexbug before and they loved it, however they broke it on the first day of getting it. They are so cool and cheap I thought I'd get another 2 to replace it and I'm sure it will be much appreciated.
I received a blue and a red one.
I must say the red bug looks a little scary!
