Design, Build, Drive and Program!

VEX Robotics by HEXBUG encourages STEM learning through hands-on play as you construct your very own jumbo-sized robot and customize its programming! The Strandbeast kit includes over 400 snap together pieces and a centralized brain to bring it to life. Drive the robot manually with remote control, or choose autonomous drive mode and watch the Strandbeast scurry around all by itself, mimicking real-life movement. This kit is cross-compatible with other VEX Robotics kits.

VEX Robotics Strandbeast is compliant with CPSIA standards. Ages 8+


The Strandbeast includes 8 legs, IR distance sensor, LED modules and interlocking gears. The gear linkages allow all 8 legs to move in unison, forward or reverse, and spin 360° to change direction. There are 64 different programming variations to choose from. To program, simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated.

  • The VEX Robotics Strandbeast kit teaches kids that...
    • Motors receive signals from the brain, spinning into action, kicking the legs into gear.
    • Distance sensors reflect infrared light to alert the beast before it crashes into its surroundings.
    • LED module changes color as the strandbeast walks.
    • The brain is the centralized computer that powers the strandbeast, relaying signals from the remote control, and activating the motors and sensors to bring the creature to life!

Three AA batteries are required in each Strandbeast and one 9V battery is required in each remote. Batteries not included.
