This was purchased for my just 4 year old son as a reward. We had a mini hex bug when the concept first appeared and everyone thought it was neat. I did not expect the same fast motion or attention getting movements and sounds considering this much much larger one is under $10 (around $8). I was wrong. It is the same great speed and movement as in the tiny size just easier to catch as you can pick it up more easily. It does best on tile - the pointy legs get stuck in a low nap carpet. It does also make some sound - not sleeping baby or daddy concentrating friendly.

Started slowing down after about an hr or so of play. My son was having such a great time so we tried turning if off for a little while and turning it back on and it was working at full speed again but it kept doing this so i emailed hexbug on their website and they said this is normal.I didnt want a toy that i was going to keep changing the batteries in all the time especially only after an hour of playtime. We took it back and got a nano and it did the same thing. So were done with these hexbugs.

    This Hexbug worked as expected. It raced around the room and entertained the little kids. Got this for a decent price, so no complaints.

          They are fast and fun but the batteries did go out pretty quick. The kids loved them and can't wait to get new batteries.

          My daughter (3) found this to be a very humorous toy, but it was not as great as I had hoped. She's in this phase about spiders, so this did the trick at holding her attention. The legs seem fairly easy to break, and I am just waiting for this to be stepped on and thrown in the trash. We placed it on carpet and the legs kept getting stuck. So then we tried hardwood and noise was pretty bad. For the price, it is a worthy amusement.

            The scarab bug was cool while it lasted. My 5 year old son would turn it on and watch it crawl all over. Not even two days later it stopped working, wouldn't move or anything. It's still a cool looking bug so my son uses it for battles against his dinosaurs.

              It's simple. You just flip a switch and the legs move like crazy, but it's fun to watch run around! Kind of looks like one of the scarabs from the Mummy movies running at you. It switches direction when it hits something like a wall. It works on carpet, but works better on solid surfaces. Sometimes, it can even flip itself back over when it falls on its back. Good cheap fun.

                  Got this for my nephew because I heard they were cool for little boys. He loves it! This thing is impressive with how fast the little legs go and how it moves around. It could easily scare the heck out of someone who is afraid of bugs! :) Perfect toy for a boy.

                      I bought 2 of these for my kids 5 and 7. The bug is pretty fast and they just love to watch it move. They pretend it's a pet or they try to see which is faster...They don't play with it all the time, but when they do, they have lots of fun!
