Pros: Self automated, cute, randomized
Cons: Loud, low battery, fragile
We got this toy for our cats as they like attacking moving things and we wanted a remote control sort of toy so that we wouldn't get clawed playing with them.

It works fine except it was a little confusing when I first tried to turn it off. You have to hold the button down. I also think it runs on a sort of cell battery.

For my cats, only one of them really "played" with it. The other was scared of it. It is pretty loud with all the vibrations from it moving around. When I say play I mean she batted at it a little bit then lost interest.

When she did bat at it a little bit it seemed to be fragile, for example the ears broke off soon into buying the mouse.

All in all it was a good product but not good for our cats. The ears broke off but they were just a cosmetic item but I personally liked them so it was upsetting. If you don't have hard floors then don't get this item or if you have skiddish cats like me.

Pros: Vibrates, real mouse movement, small size, set it and forget it.
Cons: Dogs go bananas for it and try to break it.
10 week old kitten goes bananas for this! He immediately grabs it and kicks it with his back leg. I give it to him when we are going to be and he gets put in his room or when I go to work. It is the perfect toy to hit the power button and walk away. Doesn't get hair stuck in it because it does not use wheels.

Pros: It worked as expected and we thought it mimics a mouse quite well making turns and pausing.
Cons: Our old cat didn't care much for it. He barely looked at it at first and then not even that.
We have a 13 yo cat who's not used to playing with cat toys. We were hoping an interactive toy might help so tried the hexbug robotic toy. Unfortunately, the cat simply ignored it. He glanced at it once or twice at first but then acted as it it's not there.

We've tried several times. At one point the mouse took a turn and walked all the way to the cat, literally bumping into it. The cat couldn't care less, so we put it away for good.

It's probably not the toy's fault though. It worked as promised and I'm sure a young cat or one who enjoys toys more would go crazy over it.
