HEXBUGS Nano – $200 Pack

 

Number 1 Christmas Gift Idea for kids

My number one pick for Christmas Gifts this year, without a doubt, is HEXBUGS Nano! These little guys are great for kids 3+ and will be just as exciting for girls as it is for boys.

When the package of HEXBUGS arrived, I was a little overwhelmed.  There were instructions to follow, however they were vague.  I thought this contraption must be for Dads to tackle – they get this “stuff”!  However, with no Dad insight (away for work) it was left up to Mom and Grandma to get the set complete.

Once the pieces were out, we just started at it (and here’s the great part….) there is no wrong way up set up the maze.  Pieces fit together easily, I was even able to make the spiral ramp and a second level. When I started building, I had little confidence in myself, however once I got going and noticed how easy it was to design a full track, it was lots of fun.

We created a full circuit without any open spaces, and then let our HEXBUGS go at it.  We placed the go/stop peg in one of the sections and made it a competition to see who’s bug would get there first.  DD was so excited to see her bug make it through the finish line first.  She loved watching the HEXBUGS jiggle their way up, down and around the maze (yes, they can even go up ramps).  The batteries can last a few hours a day non stop, slowly the bugs do lose their juice.   I would suggest getting extra bug food (batteries) as the kids will undoubtedly play with them until they run out of steam (again, and again and again).

We’ve really enjoyed building the track, making it larger and then watching our little bugs zoom around!  I truly believe this is DD’s favorite product for Christmas!  Heck – I even enjoy spending the time playing with her.  The nice part is, she can even play with them by herself, or with friends.  The bugs are different colours so each kid can have their own bug and match as they spin around.

If you have children 3 or older (I’d say right up to 7ish…) HEXBUGS is my number 1 choice for a present this year!  The kids are going to want to collect these.
