I kind of loved Hexbugs, until I had to buy batteries for my Hexbug inchworm today and made the mistake of getting them at Radio Shack. I needed four batteries (2 for the bug, 2 for the remote), which totalled $18.49 (11.99 for a 3 pack and 4.99 for a single, plus tax). The inchworm itself is 19.99! The batteries are much cheaper on the Hexbug site (2 for $3.99, + shipping?), but still, that’s a high price for battery replacement. Any toy that needs multiple button batteries is my enemy. Do yourself a favor and talk your kid out of wanting a Hexbug.
