Have you heard about HEXBUG ? “HEXBUG was designed to give children a positive experience with robotics at a young age, and foster an interest and understanding for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.” Just that one line on their Facebook page make me like them! There are so few toys and games out there that are not designed to help children find interest in the field of Science.
HEXBUG uses Nanos in their play. A Nano is a robotic creature that behaves like a real bug. I am looking at this as a great way for my boys to play with bugs but, not actually playing with bugs! hehe You can get them in several different colors.
Then you use the NanoBugs in the different play toys for your them. We were sent the Nano V2 Black Hole to facilitate this review. You can have the bugs defy gravity by climbing up vertically, horizontally, around corners, through loops and tubes, to the tip top of any Nano V2 habitat set. The Black Hole enables Nano V2 super-fans to customize the design and layout of the three-story set, unleashing kids’ creativity. It comes with 2 Nano V2 bugs so you are all set to play!
