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.

Review of Hexbug Ant
This little creature is crazy!! Hilarious to watch it whizzing around the room

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.

Clever but not as much as fun as the Hexbug Nano. Wish I'd bought a couple of Nanos for my nephew instead.

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.

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.
