If you haven’t played with HexBugs before, they are loads of fun! This hexbug’s six wheels move it forward and backward very fast, it actually mimics a aunt perfectly. It has two wires on front that look like antennas and one wire loop on the back. The cool thing about these wires is that when it hits an obstacle, the wheels reverse direction. The wheels move fast but stop easily with a finger or with some obstacles. My cat actually loves chasing this thing around the house. This is a super awesome toy for kids between ages 6-10 in my thoughts. Collecting all the colours would be fun and racing them around on a Saturday afternoon.
The thing is fast. It bumps, reverses until it bumps somethings else, then goes forward again. In both forward and reverse directions, the thing is fast. FUN FUN FUN!!!!
