Toys R Us Mouse Electronic Cat Toy
Terrible - do not purchase
My cats used to love playing with a Hexbot Nano so when I saw this toy I thought it would be perfect. Boy was I wrong.
First of all the batteries, 3 mini watch batteries, were dead - even though the plastic tab was still in place. When I replaced the batteries the toy still would not run consistently and I had to repeatedly unscrew the bottom and fiddle with the batteries so that they would make a connection. I even tried bending the tabs inside the battery compartment to make the batteries more snug - no good.
Save your money and your aggregation.

I would not buy any Toys R Us brand toy. I purchased this and a laser pointer and both stopped working less than 10 minutes after they came out of the package. Their toys are really poor quality and I will be returning this product.

Cat Loves to Watch It
My cat is super picky when it comes to new toys so I didn't think he would really like this but gave it a try anyway. It turns out, he loves to watch it! He doesn't actually play with it much. He lightly bats it a couple times every so often but mostly just stays entertained watching it and following it. I didn't have the battery problems some of the other reviews mentioned. I've turned it on for about 15-20 minutes at a time about 4-5 times now and it's still going strong.

Poor quality, not engaging enough
This thing stops working if you look at wrong. The slightest bump or jostle and it turns off. It will start working later, but it's very poor quality.
It needs a hard surface, so it won't work on carpet. It moves in slightly irregular circles, but not randomly enough to interest my cat, who is admittedly pretty hard to entertain.
It may only be $5, but save your money.
