Fantastic price for these hexbugs my sons been asking for some for ages. these are normally £7-£12 each! so 1 for £1.44 3+ for £1.11 5+ for £1.01 or 10+ for just 98p each is a bargain.
* New Hexbugs Nano micro robotic creature.
* Crawling like a real bug.
* Fliping over on its feet.
* Can do unexpected actions.
* Can make micro robotic toys but track is needed.
* Great fun for children above 3 years old.

* Color is varied but random.

Not that it matters perhaps, but I would take the provenance of these with a big pinch of salt.

Had these in the pound shop in east Kilbride!

The ad for these makes me laugh, it uses the song 'Monster' by 'The Automatic', mildly sucessful indie song to toy selling jingle I kinda feel sorry for them, sell-outs.

Great deal, my son was after some of these.

Might be that actually this is the only recent song most 5-6year old boys know. Since they are the target Market makes sense to me.

A few weeks.
On the positive side, by the time they arrive, you'll have forgotten you oredered them and so will be pleasantly surprised :-)
Heated & ordered.

any chance of getting stung on import duty?

Looks like there's a slim chance - focalprice.com/hel…=33

trying to find info on import duty... found wholesaleforum.com/dis…08/ which says FocalPrice have been known to deal with fake goods.

Everything this site sells is cheapo copies, but good price non the less !!!!!

Well that's a real one and notice how the label is slightly different?

I would if I was giving it to my kids. Heavy metals and other toxic substances in knock-off Chinese toys and all.

Edit: The genuine ones are stupidly expensive, aren't they?

Edited by: "VDisillusioned" 10th May 2011

Just ordered 5 myself, looks like they are fake but will compare with our originals when these arrive and see!!

@emir these are shipped from Hong Kong.

did in worksop, Notts too

Most of these things are churned out at the same factory "after hours" if the manufacturer orders 5000 then the firm churn a few more out to sell on and line their pockets. That's what used to happen with the quality DVD releases you used to get that looked identical to the "genuine" article

These could even being sold off cheap due to a cock up on the labels ie Nana instead of Nano so could be genuine but seconds happens all the time with translation issues

Might be shipped direct from mainland China, even though they say Hong Kong.

what shipping method are people using with focal price? just the airmail one or the ems because thats adds about $20 on the price

AIUI it's often not the same factory but shadow factories set up by the businesses running the real ones. So when the licence holding company, who has commissioned the production of the genuine items, doesn't find anything fishy when they turn up on a unannounced audit.

anyone else notice, the fake says 'nana' on packaging, the original says 'nano'

Doh! I didn't notice and I was looking The main difference I saw was the lack of the extended label that says" Nano" on the real one next to "3+" printing.
