Description

The Hexbug Ant scuttles around on its six rotating legs at top speed. Object sensors on its rear and its antennas mean that it will scuttle off in its ant-like way as soon as it detects an obstacle. Any detection results in the Ant shooting off in another direction.

It also has a sensor at the rear so if another obstacle is detected (i.e. another wall) then the Ant will avoid this too! These funky little critters make great little desktop friends.

Features:

  • The Hexbug Ant has obstacle detectors on its antennas and rear causing them to change direction when they touch an object
  • It has 6 rotating legs
  • The Hexbug Ant is a speedy Hexbug - almost like a Hexbug after a session on the caffeine
  • Colours may vary - Amber, Blue, Green, Pink or Purple
  • Requires 2x AG13/LR44 batteries (included)
  • Suitable for ages 14+

Size:

  • Dimensions: 6.5 x 5 x 2.5cm

Please note:

  • The plastic tab at the rear of the product must be removed for it to function.
  • Colours may vary.

Review of Hexbug Ant

This little creature is crazy!! Hilarious to watch it whizzing around the room

Hexbug Ant

What an ingenious little creature. The Hexbug Ant provides endless fun and entertainment. It works best on a kitchen floor but works great on shortpile carpet too. We have already purchased a second one and no doubt a third will be bought soon.

Entertaining toy

Very simple to use and moves in a very quirky way. Only downside is that slightly fragile, one of our legs got bent, but we fixed it with a bit of careful manipulation!

Children and insects

Bought the little fella for my 3 year olds birthday. Unwrapped the insect and set him off. He ran around the floor retreating from the kids excited and slightly fearful squeals and hid under the sofa. My 3 year old then went on to playing with a large cardboard box meaning he was forgotten about for a few days. Eventually Found him in a corner walking in circles with 3 of his legs pulled off. Great little toy but probably suited to someone a bit older.

Cute Bug

My partner loved his hexbug - so much so that he has named him! It's a clever little thing and does respond to sound and touch. When it comes to an obstacle in its path, it uses its right legs to reverse and then moves forwards again. It doesn't respond to light as the description suggests - unless ours happens to be a fan of light.

Cool Gadget

Crazy little critter

Plenty of fun for the kids. They got them in their stocking from Santa - (he's so clever). Have fun little matches among the family with them. They react to noise/touch and obstructions. Go forwards and in reverse - perhaps the crab goes sideways !?! Clever little chappies.

Dilemma Solved!

My 35yr old brother is the most awkward person to buy for as if he wants something - he buys it! He obviously hadn't heard of IWOOT - this hexbug went down a treat. Quirky, fun and kept him and his kids entertained - success all round - Thank you IWOOT =)

Really Cool Bugs

I bought this for my 5 year old for Christmas and even the adults loved it. Its really great how it responds to sound as well as physical barriers - short loud hand claps are best. Works best on smooth surfaces. Guaranteed hours of entertainment. Can't tell you how long the batteries will last as ours are still going strong which is great.

Cute robotic stocking-filler

Haven't played with this properly yet, but think it's fairly cute. It doesn't react as quickly as I thought it might, but it's still surprising nonetheless and an excellent stocking filler-type gift.

It's a bugs life

This is a cute little toy, and my grandson loves playing with it. On the down side, you have to clap veryloud to get it to change direction and the batteries are not easily available.

Sooooo good!

I purchased one each for my husband and two grown up sons. They played for hours with them on Christmas Day, like excited little boys. It gave me time to have a sherry before cooking dinner. They are excellent!!

HEXBUG

The Hexbug was a stocking filler for my little girl - it arrived within 48hrs of ordering, was very well packed and it works! As someone else mentioned, it would be nice if it wasn't running constantly as the on/off switch is a little fiddly to find, but I knew this before ordering, so am very pleased with my (ok my daughters) Hexbug :-)

Stylish Scuttling

Although not too fond of the edges of tables, the Hexbug Crab is quite adept at lying in wait beside a mouse mat, then - on a change of light level - scuttling across the keyboard and off to the other side of the desk. Like me, it doesn't like the daylight. Unlike me, it is colourful and modern. The batteries last a long time and when not in motion, the crab goes to sleep. I have not tested the non-crab Hexbugs yet.

hexbug

Its a bit freaky watching this little critter running around the room. Its a great way to freak out your mother in law this Christmas.

A bit small

The Hexbug is tiny, and a bit fragile. If it falls off something high it will break. But it's very cute!

coolest nephew gift

I purchased this for my nephew for his Xmas present. He is a true boy's boy and even though he is only 6 he will love this (to play with with his dad). I am so sure I will have the most cool points for giving it to him. I haven't used it yet but it appears to be as adverstised and I am very happy with the purchase, I may have to get another for the other nephew in the USA.

Cracking crustacean fun!

I bought one of these as a joint small gift for my 9 yr old son and the cat, but when it arrived I couldn't wait until Christmas so the cat and I had a sneaky peak and try out! It's brillliant innocent fun- I couldn't stop laughing at the cat's face as the hexcrab scuttled around, changing direction and hiding. My son is going to love it and I suspect it will be one of the daft highlights of the festive season. I'm definitely going to buy a load more for all my son's friends' birthdays! I just hope the cat can still manage to look surprised on Christmas morning....

cute but limited

The Hexbug looks very cute. I'd imagined though that you would turn it on and it would only move when activated - don't know why thought this, but in fact once you've turned it on it keeps on running until you turn it off. It forms an ornament now, not sure how often will turn it on as pretty limited, but then it is only a novelty item.

Suprisingly cute!

Got one of these little critters as a present for an awkward-to-buy-for friend (also because I wanted to play with it)! It worked straight out of the box and kept us ( a bunch of drunk grown ups) entertained.

Its a friend

Our Hexbug has now entertained us for weeks. He gets passed around and played with all the time, it's simple but ingenious. Excellent fun for the cash.
