Product Description

If you’re afraid of creepy crawlies and things with waaaaaaaaaay too many legs then look away now! The Hexbug Scarab is a spine-tingling bug that’s quicker than a seagull wearing a jetpack (no, really, it is). It’s the fastest and most aggressive-looking of all the Hexbug robots so all you’ll be able to see of its little legs is a blur as it zooms across the kitchen floor at a bajillion miles an hour.

The clever robot boffins at Hexbug Central designed this colourful fella to mimic real-life insects by incorporating all sorts of clever techniques that allow the Scarab to dart this way and that, jumping back and changing direction as soon as it encounters an object in the way. The result is a truly frenetic mechanical bug that looks completely alive and a little mad!

They May Eat Your Pets - Review by Kate

As an avid collector of all things Hexbug, when I saw this little brute, I had to lay my filthy paws on him.

The first thing I noticed, as you will too, is his speed. Just immense. Just zooms over carpet like no one's business!

Have had a few issues with him just wandering into things and not turning different directions, but still a hell lot of fun!

Amazing - Review by Patrick

This little hexbug is amazing, it moves in a nicely creepy fashion, quite fast but not too fast to anticipate. If it falls onto it's back it'll flip itself over again.

It's nice and durable like the other hexbugs and in my opinion is one of the best looking bugs in the range,

Wow! Talk about realistic - Review by Andy

I bought this for my 2 year old daughter, and boy does it creep them out. When I first turned it on the were literally SHAKING in their boots. I couldn't believe this thing, fair to say I'm totally stoked. Great little gadget. I'm coming in next month for hexbug original. WOOOHOOO!!!

Scary Scarab, Scared Wife - Review by Jack Cult

Hi RED5,

Just like to say thanks for this amazing little creature. I bought one for my kids to play with over the easter holidays as it was about time I added to their Hexbug mob...all i can say is what a result! They absolutely loved it, especially when you flip this little fella on his back & watch him try to self-right himself...I think I enjoyed it more than the kids. As for the wife, the same couldn't be said as she was scared to death when she first walked in to see the kids playing with what she could only describe as "what the hell is that crawling on my kitchen floor!!"

I think this is one of the best Hexbugs i've seen since they first came out & we probably have them all (hidden somewhere around the house anyway).

Thanks RED5!!

Freaky Fun - Review by Kassius

All the fun of a real scarab with none of the mess or chance of it eating you. Hours of entertainment to be had by simply flipping it upside down time and time again.
