Very disappointing

Pros

  • Cat loved it
  • Fun

Cons

  • Only worked for few min
  • Short Battery Life

Best Uses

  • Cat toy

Comments about HEXBUG® Micro Robotic Ant:

This was a gift for my sister-in-law's cat after a friend recommended it. I
bought the first one and when it only worked for a few minutes I bought another one (thinking the first one was defective) along with a nano. Both of them only lasted a few minutes. The cat loved them but because the life of
the toys was so short, they were a total waste of money. I just tried sending two nano bunnies but have little faith they will be any different than the other three toys. My sister-in-law does not drive and is not close to either a Radio Shack or a Post Office so returns are not an option.

Comments about HEXBUG® Micro Robotic Ant:

It truely is a choking hazard for little ones, be sure to keep away from under 3's. I bought these as a Christmas gift for my 8 yr. old grandsons. They were excited and they worked, right out of the package, which was great. They both had either seen one or played with one at friends homes, so no explanation was necessary. Grandma is the 'coolest' of all grandma's.!!!

      Comments about HEXBUG® Micro Robotic Ant:

      Worked for 1 minute then broke after running into a few obstacles. The thing should move a little slower if it can't sustain a crash.

        Comments about HEXBUG® Micro Robotic Ant:

        The product keeps our cats engrossed in watching the ant propel itself around our linoleum and carpeted floors. They chase after the fast moving ant until I pick it up and turn it off or the batteries wear out! You need to keep extra button cell batteries on hand.

          Sure the battery does not last long but you can buy them for less at battery sites on line. I got 10 for $8[...]. At [...] and [...] they are $4 or $5 a piece!
