bought for my dad for christmas, and he had bought me the same! they are great fun and have kept us amused most of the day. very life-like as they were trying to run and hide in the same places our real hamsters do. however when mine arrived, it talked and squeeked, but didnt move at all. my dad spent a good two hours trying to fix the dodgy connectors until he got it working. if we had just the one, and it was broke then it would've been a disaster! still hoping it doesnt break again!
