Toy Insider Review: Jellyfish Join HEXBUG’s Smart Fish Tank

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

HEXBUG is known for bringing kids robotic and aquatic pets, and one of its newest additions to the tank is the AquaBot Jellyfish. In our office, we’ve seen Angel Fish, Hammerhead Shark, and even Zombie AquaBots swimming around at their leisure, and while this new pet fish is just as exciting as fish of the past, it has some new, swimmingly awesome features.

If you’ve never seen an AquaBot in action you’re missing out, it is freakishly similar to watching a real Goldfish or Beta Fish (or whatever pet fish you prefer) swim and bob around in its aquatic home—except it doesn’t need to eat or use the fishy lavatory. Now, introduce the Jellyfish, and kids have a totally exotic pet that doesn’t require any maintenance.

HEXBUG Nano V2 #THEYCANCLIMB Coloring Contest

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Calling all artists! We’re super excited to announce the HEXBUG Nano V2 #theycanclimb coloring contest!

In the interest of full disclosure, here’s what happened: We hired an eccentric, internationally-renowned artist (and HEXBUG enthusiast) to create 8 colorful drawings crawling with our gravity-defying Nano V2 bugs. However, our artist received a last-minute, once in a lifetime opportunity, to climb Mount Everest’s Khumbu Icefall that left him unable to color in his original black and white outlines. After several days of scratching our heads and playing with Nano V2s, we came up with a plan to complete the artwork – launch a coloring contest and let the supertalented HEXBUG fans flex their creative muscles!

Participation in the Nano V2 contest is simple: select your favorite outline below, color it, and submit it to the HEXBUG review team. The coloring contest will run from 12:00 A.M. CST on August 19 through 11:59:59 P.M. CST on September 22, 2013. Entries can be submitted via email or regular mail.

Similar to the Nano V2 #theycanclimb video/photo contest, every entrant will receive a $5 promo code off their next purchase on www.HEXBUG.com for submitting a completed coloring page. Limit to one entry per week. To receive your $5 promotional code, simply send us an email, with your drawing attached, to theycanclimb@HEXBUG.com, and we will reply to your email with your code. Or, you can send us your drawing via mail to Innovation First International, Attn: They Can Climb Coloring Contest, 1519 Interstate 30 West, Greenville, Texas 75402. Be sure to include child’s name, age, plus a parent or guardian’s street address, phone number and e-mail address so that winners may be notified.

Every week we will spotlight some of the best submissions on our website www.nanov2.com, which we may also share on our social media channels. There will be two categories of winners – an “under 6 years of age” and a “7-12 years of age” category. At the end of the contest we will announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category, who will win the following prizes:

  • First Place – A Nano V2 Master Collection (one of every set)
  • Second Place – A $50 promo code to HEXBUG.com
  • Third Place – A $30 promo code to HEXBUG.com

This contest is open to anyone living in the 50 US states as well as Canada.  For more information, official rules, and to download your favorite coloring pages for the Nano V2 #theycanclimb coloring contest, visit http://www.nanov2.com/coloringcontestrules.
