My daughter wants a/some hexbugs for her birthday, but I can't tell if they are any good or will just join the piles of junk that I really dislike. Are they battery heavy? Does anyone have a view on them? Thank you, Lara

yes they eat batteries and are boring, i spent £35 and wish i had not, had to replace batteries after first day and new ones lasted 2 days, my son has sn and loves things that are simple and just run about, even he does not really like these, my 6 year old dd shows no interest in them at all, but thought they looked cool in the shop!!!!!!

My kids love them and you can make runs out of Lego for them.We get cheap batteries from a local hardware store.

We don't have pets,my 3 have really bonded with their Hex Bugs,making homes,pens,zoos etc for themBlush.

They also have the cheaper I insect version.

I'd really recommend them actually,loads of play value but you'll need to lecture about battery usage.
