That's kind of cool. I would get one, but it would probably end up falling on the floor getting stepped on!

Be careful of what you wish for! I became a box-turtle mommy for 2 years! It's not as easy as it seems. Raised 3 from eggs but only two lived (I released them in a park near by :o} They need a whole lot more care than a BOX let me tell ya! b/t/w... lettuce has no nutrional value to them. They need a heat source and lighting. You also need to sprinkle this stuff on their food (omg...been so long ago!... think it's called Nutra-cal or something(?!) It keeps their shell hard and that's really important when you go to release them. They have tons of predators and their shells are their main defense. sings...***ninja ninja turtle!***

Lyanna--- it just brought back sweet memories of my box turtle babies. I really miss them. These things are cute! Does anyone no the dimensions because I couldn't find it (?) I want one for my desk, too! :o)

here's an eBay listing with a video of the cuties in action:

looks like you can get them for around $10 including shipping from other eBay sellers.

I saw those while over in Japan last September. They are super cute and I regret that I didn't buy them. I never got to see one that was walking so I'm not sure how well they work. They were only about $6 there so eBay might be the way to go if you want one.

Viv--- thanks!!!! I think I'll order one for my little boy and if it happens to walk across my desk, it's not MY fault! :oP***

Not made by Dynamism. Just distributed by them. Made by Takara. You can get them at hlj.com rather cheaper. there is an order stop on them now, but once they get them in stock at the end of next month they should open the orders up again and they'll keep restocking week to week. Shipping cost shouldn't be bad because they are so small.

That's cool, Kendosan. Will have to shop around I guess. Thanks for this info as well :o) Approx what size are these? I still haven't found out.. (r they palm size or larger? exacts not needed)

Carlisa

There's a page on the official site for them with a few videos of these in action... http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products/walkiebits/play/index.html

WHOA! Why does everything on that site have to be SO expensive! $250 for a sushi USB?!

Lucas
 |  Mar 26, 2006 at 09:54 AM

I was going to buy several, until I realized how much they were. Now I probably won't even buy one. :(

lucia
 |  Mar 29, 2006 at 10:55 PM

They are not $30, they actually come out to be $40 when all is said and done. But that didn't stop me from making my boyfriend buy me one! :) Now I have my cute little Tangerine (that's his name :P) sitting in his little orange tin on my desk.
