These creepy crawly robots are packed full of high tech circuitry that enable them to dodge obstacles and run away from loud noises. Tiny microprocessors in the robot's housing allow the Hexbugs to process signals from their antennae and an inbuilt microphone.
The Hexbug reacts to the sound of a handclap or other loud noises, causing it to turn around and scuttle off in a different direction. It will also use its antennae to detect objects in front of it and this will also cause it to change direction, allowing it to manoeuvre around anything you put in its way. These funky little critters make great little desktop friends.

for the inner child
I bought the Hexbug Original for my husband, as a little birthday gift. He is a big kid really, and it did the trick as he loves it!
I brought the bug as a fun present for my husband, it passed the test we had loads of laughs with it! The only downside is that it doesn't work on carpet but it was great in the kitchen. Well worth the money.
I got this Hexbug as a present for a mate and was surprised how compact it was when it arrived. However when looking at the detail of it, I was really impressed. It's an ideal gift for a chap who's a bit technical but got all the toys. It's a fun gadget that he loves - a bit different and not crazy expensive!
Hexbug Original - Great
We bought some Hexbugs for our grandaughter last year and she was thrilled with them. Our elder son (47) saw them in action recently and decided that he wanted one as well. This could solve our present problems for some time! Wonderful.
