Unfold and Discover New Habitats

The Hexbug Hive Habitat Set features efficient foldable construction that allows you to take your habitat wherever you go. To open, simply slide the two textured black hexagons toward the sides of the set, and the two sides will unlock. To close, simply fold both sides back toward the center and snap into place--your newly created mazes will remain intact.

The set opens onto a gray-and-orange platform with a white second level and a ramp that gives you access to multi-level fun. The gray level has many small holes where you can insert construction pieces as you see fit.

Build Interactive Mazes for Your Mutant Specimen

The Hive Habitat Set includes 16 cogs, 16 workable doors, 2 spinning spirals, and 1 seesaw for you to create your own interactive maze. Each of these pieces plugs into the holes on the gray platform. Don't be afraid to push them in, they need a little force! Use the working doors to form a series of adjustable mazes and position the ramps and spinners to send your Nano ricocheting around the platform and up to the second level.

Our testers initially found the setup a little confusing, but don't let this discourage you! Place the pieces in wherever you like. Your Nano will find a way to explore around them, keeping you entertained for hours. But be careful: these construction pieces are small and could pose a choking hazard. The set requires one AG13 battery (included).

What's in the Box

Hexbug Nano Mutation, 16 pegs, 16 adjustable flags, two merry-go-rounds, one seesaw, and installed battery

This does the trick and they love to sit and play with their hex bugs in their new home.

Totally worth every penny - I wish I had bought them myself a long time ago.

My children love their hexbugs, but the original habitats become somewhat boring after a while, after all how many different ways can you really connect a bunch of hexagons?

Hexbug is staring to change all that though with these new sets - my kids love the multilevel aspect. There is a ramp for the hexbug to travel up and roam around on the second level. My kids get the biggest kick out of this happening. They can also use the pegs on the lower level to create obstacles for the hexbugs to maneuver around.

Like the other hexbug habitats, this one connects into other parts, so it can be part of a bigger hexbug city. Definitely a great creative addition to our set!

my son loves his "buggies"! this Hive habitat is the only portable set (at the time of this review). it easily folds out to reveal a 2-level area for the nanobugs to wander. it comes with a seesaw and merry-go-rounds that secure to the bottom level of the set. it also comes with plenty of deflection pegs and gates to make their roaming patterns even more chaotic. a ramp leads up to the second level; we opened the 2 gates on that level to allow the hexbugs to fall as another way for them to return to the first level instead of relying on them to "find" the ramp. this Hive has become the core of a much bigger habitat we built with a spiral set and the elevation habitat set (see uploaded pic). super fun!

Our 6 year old had been pestering us for hex bugs for a while. Honestly, they looked kind of silly, and I hate bugs. But he got a handful of birthday money, and bought this himself.

Consider me a convert. I actually enjoy this toy almost as much as he does. It's amazing the way these little buzzing robots mime the actions of actual bugs. Watching them zip around this set, going up an down the levels, spinning in the buggy spinner thing...it's mesmerizing.

If you are wondering "are hex bugs all that", I say "yep". Our 6 year old is kind of science loving kid. But I think just about any kid would dig this.

The set itself is great, and a great way to start. We are now going to be ditching all of our bulky zhu zhu pets in favor of these smaller (and far superior) animal replication toys.

I am pleased with my purchase but not pleased with the price. After purchasing this product, I found the exact same item at Target for half the price! I had no idea that the price difference would be so great.

I purchased this set and a starter kit with the intention that the recipients would have their own hexbug and be able to share the playset. Unfortunately this kit only came with one Nanobug even though the description says two. I had to scramble last minute to find an affordable supplement that was also a different color from what I already had. I had purchased this for Christmas and the reviews saying that there was only one Nanobug included had not been posted yet otherwise I would have made different plans.

Beyond that, the kids were able to immediately figure out how to set the playset up and had a lot of run racing each other around the paths. The original batteries were almost completely drained with about 3 hours of play, which for the size of the bug seems a little weak. The bug still vibrated but did not have enough power to move anymore.

5 year old with many hex bug sets still loved this addition to his collection. Easy to set up and to mesh with other hex bug parts.

Got this for the grandkids: 2 1/2 and 6 and they AND their parents had lots of fun. Played with it every day, then were able to close it up in the self container and take it home. Be sure to buy extra bugs - the extra 5 pack is perfect. I cannot imagine it would be nearly as much fun with just the one it comes with. There are lots of little parts used to create bug lanes, so keep a baggy handy. The bugs were going much of the time for 3 days before they needed new batteries so glad I got the Amazon-cheap extra batteries too. This is the same one as on the home shopping networks, but cheaper at Amazon and free shipping with Prime.
