My cat is still playing with it, she learned very quickly how to unsnap the bug from the hanger, fixed that problem with a bit of super glue, can't get it apart now, so she still fascinated...
The magnet makes the bug's movements look very real and it moves by itself for almost a minute. Unfortunately, my cat is very picky and all she has done so far is rub her head against the pole. Oh well!
Not Worth buying
This toy is so boring. I thought the beetle would be running up the string and coming down. But it just moves or rotates if pushed. My cat just looked at it once but then never played with it.

This is a cute toy, and great idea. However, it is definitely not sturdy enough. My cats always get the string off the metal pole, and the metal pole is always bending out of position. So - great in theory, but not in execution. They do love it when it is working, though.
A fun toy
All of our 5 cats have had an enjoyable game batting this little bug around. They have had lots of fun with it.

A clever toy, if only my cat played with it for more than five minutes since I got it.
Great simple toy
My senior cat is pretty lazy but he is fascinated by this toy. He lays next to it all the time even when he's not playing with it. It's amazing how such a simple toy can be so intriguing for him. Occasionally he will chew on the place where the toy connects with the pole and pop off the toy. Then he walks around with it in his mouth making that noise that cats make when they have caught a tiny creature. Luckily it pops right back in.

Our old lady kitty who is not interested in playing with anything will play with this toy. She even initiates playtime on her own!
