Hexbug Original

Product information

It’s tiny, it fits in the palm of your hand, and it reacts to touch and sound. Switch the Hexbug button on and see it scurrying in all directions. Clap your hands or make any loud noise, however, and this crafty crustacean will change direction until it finds an obstacle - it even has a self-righting mechanism.

Please note: There are 5 distinct shapes and colours in this Hexbug range. Unfortunately it's not possible to request a specific one, so please let us choose one on your behalf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ideal small stocking filler. Bought this as a fun table present for my son-in-law on christmas day. Not as great as I had hoped although it did move around as stated. Even my grandsons were not very enthralled. 03 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for boys My son was more than happy with the Hexbug. His friends had been talking about them for sometime and he was delighted to have received one for Christmas. I can see that it will give him hours of delight. 01 January 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by as expected The Hexbug was predictable, didn't over excite my son, but was an ok stocking filler at the last minute. Value for money?...not really for what it was and what it did...... Mmmmm...... 30 January 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boys love this Bought as a stocking filler for my other half and he posted a picture of it on facebook, which all of his friends commented on saying how they loved theirs and how cool they were. Bought another for the godson and similarly he loves it. 27 January 2012
