Never heard of “#HEXBUGMOD”? For years HEXBUG has been devising nifty toys that cause you to think, learn, and create. Our aim is to make products that promote engineering techniques and hands-on problem-solving skills. What happens when the world’s most clever fans interact with these toys? The ultimate collaboration occurs and words of advice: COLLABORATION IS KEY! Our products end up rewired, repainted, and given brand-new life. These great creations born from this interaction are called “HEXBUG Modifications”. Or as we call them “#HEXBUGMOD”.
These personal projects not only show off passion so many people have for tech toys, they show us the undiscovered creative genius our fans possess but never have the chance to properly showcase. And so, we created the hashtag “#HEXBUGMOD”, allowing you to unleash your personal creations online. Think outside the box and come up with new and innovative ways to discover new mods.
Use the tag and share your creation for all to appreciate. Whether you add LED lights, decorate your Spider Mechanical with glow-in-the-dark paint or add steampunk details to a Scarab – you’re embracing the heart of #HEXBUGMOD.
Check out some #HEXBUGMOD entries below. Use the hashtag on social media to show us creations of your own!
