It is called a "Nano" and is made by "HexBug". Thousands of these were sold around Christmas.
But, the battery usually died within a few hours. Due to the cost of the battery, many were put away or found themselves at the bottom of toyboxes.
If you have one and would like to get rid of it, please let me know. I need a part that is on them and I found the factory that builds the toys, but in order to get the parts, I have to order 10,000 of them. I need as many as I can get, but 10K is one or two too many- even at 38cents each.
Please check to see if your bug died and decide if you'd rather get rid of it than replace the battery. HexBug made several models but the Nano is the only wone with the part. I could use 50 of them easily so please check.
Very few stores have them new and the price is quite high so I am hoping to get or buy some dead ones.
