Out with the Kids has a great review of the HEXBUG product line.
For a bunch of mechanical insects, Hexbugs are unusually adorable, especially the crab (the blue one in this photo). While you probably won’t be snuggling up with the things in bed, you certainly will not rush to call the exterminator either. The evolution of Hexbugs is evident and exciting to witness. The original bug reacts to touch and sound, with it’s wire-thin antenna’s recognizing any contact. That contact then triggers the creature’s legs to move backwards in an frantic attempt to escape. Very, very clever.
They also have a HEXBUG giveaway (scroll to the bottom of the article).
