This summer, my husband bought our kids each a Hexbug Nano. They received them while we were up at the cottage. These Hexbugs provided the children with hours of entertainment. As soon as the Hexbugs were turned on, you could hear giggles that I'm sure went across the lake! Admittedly, the kids weren't the only ones screaming and giggling, all of the adults got in on the fun too!
My husband knows me well so when he heard the excitement in my voice when I was explaining to him how much fun these toys were, he got a bright idea! He bought me one for our Anniversary which was the day after returned from the cottage. In fact, he not only bought me one, but he also bought one for himself.
Side Note: My husband isn't crazy - he also bought me some gorgeous earrings too!
Our family had so much fun using our wooden blocks, building paths for our bugs and watching them scatter all over the kitchen floor!
That week, I contacted the wonderful people at Hexbug to talk to them about how much we LOVED their toys and that we would love to help them promote their amazing little creatures!
We were sent a HexBug Nano HIVE Habitat Set and a HexBug Nano Zip Line Starter Set to test out.
First of all, you HAVE to check out the Hexbug Nanos in action:
This set is an amazing concept and it adds so much extra fun to using our Hexbugs. It did require adult set up which took a while to figure out exactly how to make the ramp the correct height so that the bugs could climb it, but once we figured it out, it has definitely been a lot of fun. We attached the Zip Line Set to our Habitat Set through one of the mini doors that you can open. This made our Hexbug Set that much bigger and fun!
Hexbugs are fun, inexpensive creatures that have provided fun for our entire family (and friends). The bugs take watch sized batteries. We have had to replace my son's batteries a few times since we got it, but that *might* be because he sometimes forgets to turn it off when he isn't playing with it.
Hexbugs work on hard, smooth surfaces only. This is convenient because they get stopped by carpet which has meant that in our house, they can't get too far.
Hexbugs would make a wonderful birthday gift for a child! They come in a variety of colours and types.
