“The HEXBUG fire ant jitters across the floor and spins on the spot at the users command.  Both my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter’s favourite feature was its ability to spin in fast circles.    They enjoyed how it shivers and shakes while it moves.  It does come with some limitations though.  The HEXBUG fire ant has difficulty moving on carpet (even a tight berber) and won’t move on shag, due to the open nature of the wheels. Smooth floors, such as hardwood or tile are ideal. ~Krista”
