So the week before Halloween, the kids and I hosted a HEXBUG party. We had these little critters running all over the place. I have never laughed so hard watching the cat chase and paw at something in all my life. The kids sat in the floor for hours with the HEXBUG and the track. All of our neighborhood kids loved them and asked us for more. I have played with the HEXBUGs secretly after the kids went to bed of course. Great toys and lots of fun!
How was HEXBUG conceived? *U.S. Timeline – Release dates and product availability vary by country
By leveraging our robotics expertise, we entered the toy industry in 2007 with the launch of the HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creatures product line. HEXBUG was designed to give children a positive experience with robotics at a young age. Our passion for robotics, as demonstrated by our VEX Robotics program, was the main catalyst fueling HEXBUG’s inception. Hence, the brand was born! People are drawn to the HEXBUG brand for our products’ fascinating behavior, intelligent bug-like attributes and eye-catching packaging. Some of the products are so animated, they even fool cats, dogs and some humans into thinking they are alive
Ant and Nano
In 2009, we launched the fastest member of the HEXBUG family, the HEXBUG Ant. It was followed by the debut of our tiniest, internationally-recognized bug, known as the HEXBUG Nano. The HEXBUG Nano launched the brand into mass and specialty retailers internationally, while introducing new, self-righting capabilities and showing off its ability to find its way through any maze, big or small.
Here are some of the comments from the participants:
Gabriel (10 years old) says ” They are AWESOME! I like the Zombie one’s the best.”
Isabella (7 years old) says ” They look cool and they go around really fast.”
Bruiser (THE CAT) says “MEOW!”
So go out and get as many HEXBUGs as you can. They will make great stocking stuffers.
