The HEXBUGs are in the ‘Gadgets’ section of the current issue (17th – 23rd June) of Zoo Magazine in the UK. A weekly publication with a circulation of over 145,000. Featured on page 2 and page 74 the HEXBUG Crab takes pride of place with it’s siblings watching over.

Another great feature for the HEXBUG product – “Mindless fun,” we couldn’t agree more!

HEXBUG for Father’s Day

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Father’s Day has come and gone, but in case you need ideas for birthdays or any future holidays, momstart.com has listed HEXBUG as one of thirteen things to get Dad for Father’s Day.

The industrious critter features front and rear touch sensors, which allow it to maneuver around objects in its path, and wheel-legs that propel it forwards, backwards and over small obstacles with furious speed.  The HEXBUG Ant has an inner body loaded with robotic intelligence, protected by a hard, transparent exoskeleton casing. Best yet, with a retail price of $9.99, this gift is economically friendly.
