HEXBUGs Are Super Cool For Easter Baskets!

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Robyn’s Online World blog featured the entire HEXBUG line as great alternative Easter gifts:

I would even have to agree with Taylor on this one and go for the super cool Hexbug! It might be small, but it is mighty in it’s fun. Don’t think they are just for the kids either, adults (like me) love these little robotic creatures just as much as the younger ones. While the bunny is super cute, what am I really going to do with it? Plus the Hexbug is a fantastic alternative to candy – do we really need to buy our kids all that chocolate and sugar? The Hexbug I can keep out and play with 365 days a year!

Possessed Micro Pets

UK Toy reviewer Toylogy review the Hexbug Nano:

“The latest additions to the Hexbug range of robotic bugs are the unassuming Nano bots, a flick of the ON switch however and you’re in for a surprise.  These little finger sized machines travel at remarkable scale speeds across solid surfaces, a powerful motor inside the body vibrating the legs and sending them forward with no regard for obstacles.  When the mini critter slams into a solid object it’ll either change direction and carry on, or depending on the momentum it has achieved flip onto its back or side and vibrate onto it’s feet – either way quite a spectacle.  This is just one Nano in action, a swarm of them running about the place bumping into each other is a highly watchable event”
