I thought these seemed like a cool idea. I was almost surely in @ $2 & free s/h. Then, I saw this video of how they work:

First I was in, now I am out.

@phillystyle: The guy in the video tried them out at sunset in the middle of winter, not the best way to see if they work.

@catbertthegreat: yea but they still don't DO anything bug jiggle

Definitely a let down. I have some that are garbage powered. They are way better then these ones.

@wadekind: Not if it's a solar-powered cockroach, it's not.

I bought one of these for $3 back in December. While it's not really that impressive, it's sorta neat. It is extremely sensitive to sunlight.. but it only vibrates. Indoors, you have to hold it all the way up to a lightbulb to get it to work. But I would say it's worth the $2 if you have children that like electronics or bugs...

Oh yeah, I have one of these... they're honestly not very impressive. Fun for little kids maybe, but then again they'll probably try to eat them or something. Don't wanna instill bad habits.

I dunno,I saw them and though "COOL!" then saw the vid and thought "maybe not so much" even for 2 bucks each.

If you want a cool bug, check out the Hexbug Nano. THAT's a awesome, lifelike bug...

I bought one of these last time. It has been sitting in direct sunlight ever since and has not yet moved. Lame.

that is the dumbest thing i've ever seen. u can get live ones for free, just leave food out and they'll come.

@stanluca: No you can't. In my home state up here in the North, we are not privileged to have cockroaches...... :'(
