Gizmodo posted a list of Toys and Games To Buy Smart Kids Whose Parents You Actually Like and the HEXBUG Nano was on the list.
Nano Hexbugs: Last year, Hexbugs were all the rage, so it just makes sense that this year is all about Nano Hexbugs. As your finely tuned Jobsian brain already guessed, they’re smaller. And they’re cheaper. And they wiggle and jiggle and move fast as hell, and flip over and right themselves, and it’s just bunches of fun for all ages (except for babies, who could choke on them). Shown here much larger than actual size. $10; Ages 3 and up
Check out the other 11 toys on their list.
