My son chose this toy when spending birthday money, and I was skeptical at first. I felt it was kind of spendy for what it was. However, this little remote controlled fire ant is pretty cool...it moves quickly over a variety of surfaces and my son really enjoys it.

Well, it's not a good experience this time. My son is 7. He's Autistic with several other diagnoses. I am a single mother with NO help from any friends nor family and can only work part time hours due to this and my son being disabled, I receive NO child support from my sons father as he has nothing to do with Elijah because he feels "the boy is defective" so I raise my son alone. With all that being said, money is extremely sparse for me, but every single dollar I get goes to my sons needs and wants. His newest love is Hexbugs. He absolutely adores this things! We started out with just the little ones, the Nano's I think they're called? I then decided to give in to my sons nonstop pleas for the FireAnt, the Spider, the Beetle, the Scarab....those are the big ones I've bought thus far as well as 12 of the little guys, and one Maze. So I've already invested a LOT of money in these. The Fire Ant and the Scarab stopped working within 12 hours of purchase. I cleaned out both toys of any hair or carpet fibers, I've changed the batteries with a package of the Hexbug 12 pack of batteries that ya'll sell. Nothing. Both toys still will not work. I went to Toys R Us on Saturday, June 11th about 10am and spoke with a Josef about this issue, asking his advice on how to fix these toys and I was told that, and I quote, "It's luck of the draw. It's hit or miss. You are more likely to get a Hexbug that DOES NOT WORK than one that does. You should try buying the other companys toys that are like the hexbug, they don't break as easily." I tried to explain this to my now crying and upset 7 year old Autistic child but it was no use and I had to leave the store because my son went into a full scale mental breakdown from now realizing his precious and very loved toys will never work. I was also told that I'd be better off just buying another Hexbug in it's place and pray it works better than the original one I bought. To say I was upset is an understatement.

      Hexbugs are always a good buy. I've nevere had any issues with any of them not working like you do with cheaper remote controlled toys. My son loved this one because you can control 2 bugs with 1 remote and sincronize movements

      My kids love it. They get hour of entertainment out of their hexbugs. This one is one of their favorites. It helps to have a large wood or concrete floor.
