HEXBUG Nano and the HEXBUG Nano Habitat set were recently featured on Mashable in their Education Gadgets feature:
HEXBUG Nano bugs are robotic creatures that are programmed to behave like real bugs. Beyond just satisfying childrens’ desires for creepy-crawlies, the Nano bugs teach kids about science. Children can design and build habitats for their Nano bugs and register them online (where there are more learning resources). The collectability of the range and pocket-money prices of the expandable system means you might also be able to use the Nano bugs as a way to teach Junior about the importance of saving up for something he wants.
