Product Description

Product Description

The HEXBUG Nano is a tiny, collectable, micro robotic creature that uses the physics of vibration to propel forward and explore its environment. Powered by a tiny motor, and 12 fixed, angular legs, the industrious critter traverses the ground beneath it and quickly navigates through the most complex mazes. Possessing an uncanny sense of balance, it can even flip to its feet and zoom forward when turned on its back! When coming into contact with an object in its path, the energetic insect will switch directions and scurry away on a new path due to its persistent random behaviour.

Box Contains

1 He x bug Nano

This little bug was so much fun, for both kids and adults. It provides amusement for ages, especially for kids, as it acts exactly like a bug, trying to scuttle and bury itself and run away from you.

The design is very clever and very simple. It has a small vibrator inside, and with the bendy rubber legs it looks like it is actually running. If it flips over the vibrator flips it over so it can keep on scurrying away. Doesn't work on soft surfaces like carpet obviously. Fairly sturdy and I don't think it would break easily.

To get a bit more fun from it, you can try building it an obstacle course, or a "playpen" so it won't run away from you and you can just watch it find all the little holes and weak points and push through to try to escape. If you have more than one, you can try to race them against each other.

The only downside is that if just one of your kids has one, all the other ones will beg you to get them their own bug!

ARRIVED WELL WITHIN THE STATED TIME FRAME. MY SON WAS OVERJOYED WITH THIS TOY WHICH IS VERY DURABLE AND ACTS LIKE A REAL BUG EXPLORING THE FLOOR. WE ESPECIALLY LIKE THE WAY IT FLIPS THE RIGHT WAY UP AFTER BEING PLACED ON ITS BACK. WOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM BUYING ANOTHER ONE BECAUSE IT TAKES UP SO LITTLE SPACE, WHICH IS QUITE IMPORTANT WHEN STORAGE SPACE IS LIMITED.

I love these little things. They give my daughter hours of fun and the best thing is you don't have to feed them or clean up after them! I wish that they came in more variety of colours as my daughter has 5 Hexbugs and 3 of them are blue. It would be nice to have a rainbow set! Otherwise, I think they are a great fun toy.

Bought this for my 2 year old niece and she was absolutley delighted, played with it non stop and wouldn't put it down. Only slight criticism is that it doesn't move freely on carpet but thats just finding fault.

My son has been asking and asking for these and have to say it's great fun, scooting around the livingroom. He loves it. Cheaper here than in Smyths etc too so even better.

I ordered three of these for three children for Christmas and emailed the seller to as for three different colours so that there would be no arguing or confusion from the children when they get them. Although the seller did not contact me back to confirm this, they did send three different colours so I was very pleased. The only thing I wasn't pleased about what that the packaging is slightly different to the picture shown on here and they came in only the plastic tubes (completely sealed though) but without the backing card. This meant that the tubes we slightly scuffed in places and it made the packaging look a bit warn. Luckily the receivers are children and they properly won't notice it but if it was for a grown up or older child they might.

Item ordered for my son for his birthday, as all his mates seem to have them. It is great fun to play with, much smaller than I thought, just a fun item really, bug only moves on smooth surfaces, no good for carpets or anything with "a pile". Unless you remember where you put it, easily lost due to size!
