Electronic cockroaches (in a good way)
on 4 January 2014
Bought to amuse my grandchildren during one of the gaps between meals over Christmas. It was one of the most successful toys at doing that ever. Obviously the sight of five bugs skittering all over the floor (works on hard surfaces only) created havoc and they only just avoided being crushed by four pairs of feet. Fun but not too much educational value in that, but later working out how to build obstacle courses out of place mats that didn't trap the bugs in dead ends took more thinking for the 2 to 7 year olds.
I prefer 'open-ended' toys so buying the habitats doesn't appeal but the concept of creating environments out of what is at hand does and is a lot cheaper!
Not something to play with every day but great for parties and get-togethers.
