I think that most of us have seen at least once a commercial by Hexbug and their adorable robot bugs. They all seem to do pretty impressive things when they are shown on TV. But I always wonder what do you do with them?

This is definitely something that my boys don’t think about. All they know is that they want to play with this product so badly that they start jumping on the couch every time the commercial comes on.

After debating for some time whether I should buy them or not, Hexbug came out with a game that looked really cool and actually looked like hours of fun so I was sold.

This company creates Micro Robotic creatures. The idea of the company is to allow kids to interact with robotics in a fun way. Their line V2 Hexbug Nanos can climb vertically through loops, tubes and pretty much all around the sets, like the Nano V2 Watch Tower. It is a really cool set that allows tons of different designs.

Over the years we have bought tons of race tracks that allow you to play with design. So I was expecting something similar when I got this game. Was I wrong!

The first thing that I loved about this set was the fact that the bug is really cute and vibrates, so when you hold it, it feels more like a pet than a robot.

The second thing was seeing the bug run through the pipes after we built it. We got such a huge kick out of it that the boys ended playing with it for days and days. This was some kind of miracle because my boys never stay interested in one thing for so long.

The third thing was that there is no limit to what you can build. And my boys ended coming up with some impressive and cool tracks.

And last but not least, the big boys in my family loved this travel toy too. My dad and husband also had a kick from playing with it.

This is without a doubt one of the best games we have got in a long time. It’s fun and also educational.
