Check out a great review of the HEXBUG product line on associatedcontent.com‘s Parenting column.
Hexbugs were a tremendous hit at our house right out of the starting gate. The kids loved the packaging, the bright colors, the variety, the fact that they were playing with bugs, and the technology of it all. The only thing that might have enhanced the experience would have been a micro remote control, but Innovation First, Inc thought of that too, and the newer versions of their robotic toys now have one.
