We were sent two of these funny crabs from Find Me A Gift. We had Tobago and Trinidad but there are two lovely lady versions too, Turks and Bimini would appeal to any little girl. You can even buy them some luxury accommodation to live in, but I think that was too girly for our two. But they were very pleased with the hermit crabs they had.
My boys are big fans of HEXBUGS but these are good to appeal to children a little younger. They have a certain charm about them, especially with a small friend living in their shells and very friendly faces. They have been able to roam about even on our carpet, which is great, as sometimes getting anything to actually move needs a hard floor! They run around for a short while then you touch their claw to set them off again. The longest they run around for is 15 seconds, so if your hoping for a toy that is in constant motion this is not for you. But I like them, the little shell can hold other tiny things too, whatever your child decides is worthy of a short ride!
They are currently on sale, so a good time to purchase them. Good fillers to pad out the main Christmas presents. I am finding it harder living day to day, buying food and juggling bills, never mind making sure the boys have enough lovely presents for Christmas day. But with prices like these you can soon give the impression Father Christmas thinks they are exceptionally good children!
Tobago and Trinidad are £4.99 each at the moment, I like how they arrived in plastic carry cases, nicely presented, so not a bad present for a fabulous price! The quality of the hermit crabs seems good too, hard strong plastic not flimsy breakable rubbish.
