The Wee Beastie Owner's Guide
'Feed' The Wee Beastie by holding it under a bright light source. The LEDs will flash as it begins to feed and will flash faster and faster until it is fully charged (which takes about 45 seconds). Then place The Wee Beastie on the floor away from the light and it will rattle and roll and bounce around for up to 2 minutes (when fully fed).
Note that The Wee Beastie works best on hard surfaces rather than carpets, and it is better to use rechargeable AA cells (Ni-Cd or Ni-MH) rather than disposable ones. If using disposable cells then they need to be high quality alkaline.
