my 8 yr old son bought this with birthday money, having already got the hexbug nest. he spends hours playing with it, changing the layout using the little barriers provided. the hexbug nest pieces fit in a number of different ways making this a different game every time he plays with it. would definitely recommend.

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 11 year old grandson was beyond delighted to get this.(He thought is was "EPIC"!!) He had seen the large ones at the Science Museum. It comes with one bug and we had arranged for another member of the family to buy him another bug. This was a good move because the two bugs reacting within the hive was a better experience than having just one racing around by itself. particularly as grandon's friend had arrived. They played off against each other. The hive can be configured in different ways to encourage the bugs to take different paths and overcome obstacles. They right themselves when they have turned on their backs and seem quite resilient as 2 year old grandson tried to get involved as well!Although the two older boys were quite cautious. I understand the hive can be built upon with other parts and this will be great for Christmas.

The hexbug hive is a useful toy and is good for making your bugs go to different levels. It can also pack up into a bag.
I recommend this because it is fun arranging the flags.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun set 4 Feb 2014

As I commented on the Nano Newton Robot Insects - I think it is fun. Also such a good way of keeping the "bugs" contained when not in use. Will keep until my grandson is a bit older.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great toy. 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 6 year old, we both think it's great. The nano bugs scurry around the hive like little animals, it's quite freaky watching them, almost realistic. A really interesting toy.
