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.

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.
My kid got this as a present. Its so much fun and now it has turned into a party trick. It really runs around like a lunatic :)
I would recommend to a friend, no all my friends! My son had so much fun and when his friend came over all they did was play with the hexbug,you gotto buy it, it's so cool.
Clever but not as much as fun as the Hexbug Nano. Wish I'd bought a couple of Nanos for my nephew instead.
My husband loves this bug. Its so cute and entertaining :)
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!
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.
A little something that amuses all who watch it at work! Cute but not cuddly! Not just for the kids!Genius little fun bug....and the cat loved it too!
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.
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 =)
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.
Even though its a bug its very cute and comical. I bought two so they could play together. Good present or a techy person
It basically very slowly went round in a slow circle and unless a lot of high obstacles were constructed for it it was really not of much interest and would not move on carpet. It did stop when you clapped hard enough to hurt your hand. Rather typical of such gizmos more interesting in the anticipation than reality.
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.
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.
bought this as a stocking filler for my nephew who thought it was great fun, spent hours on the floor on Christmas day chasing it around! Cute and great value for money
Great little toy, providing much amusement for teenage sons, adults and cat!
