Discover STEM also served as the debut of the A-B Robotics Club, whose members were selling HEXBUGS, small mechanical “bugs” that respond to touch and sound, to raise money and awareness for the club.

Holiday Extravaganza Review

Monday, November 9th, 2009

As part of their Holiday Extravaganza Review, Mom’s Balancing Act has reviewed the HEXBUG Nano.

When I received the Hexbug Nano in the mail I was completely intrigued. I had never seen anything like it before. I took it out of it’s “test tube” packaging and turned it on only to find that it scurries across the floor or hard surfaces much like a real bug! It’s really fast and quite fun to watch.

Upscale Baby Blog: HEXBUG Nano

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

The Upscale Baby Blog has reviews the HEXBUG Nano. Check out the full review on their site.

At a price of just $7.99 each, what a cool gift idea for kids (probably not a good idea for younger than 3 years old due to its small size) or adults. In fact, I have a few HEXBUG Nanos in different colors to put under the Christmas tree for my 5 year old son. I’m sure he’ll have hours of fun with them on Christmas morning!
