Product Description

Product Description

Hexbug is a micro-creature toy robot inspired by BEAM technology. Hexbug has a few simple behaviors. Once switched on, Hexbug will move forward with a classic alternating tripod gait. If an obstruction touches either of the antennae, or if it detects a loud sound it will back up to the left and then continue forward. The name Hexbug, however, has more to do with the shape of the packaging it is sold in than the number of legs it has.

The nano series, which acts very similarly to a bug in that it will flip itself over if it is placed on its back. It has an off-set motor in it which causes it to vibrate.

Each Bridge Battle Habitat Sets comes with 2 Nano specimens and 10 easy connect pieces, giving you the freedom to get creative and see how many ways your Nanos can battle!

My first-grader and his friend took this set down to the basement, turned out all lights and just watched the nanos. The giggles from two little boys were music to my ears! Since then my son had built and re-built the habitat using pieces from regular sets.

If you own any hexbugs you are aware that these little critters can take off and get caught under places that make it hard to retrieve. The habitat set provides a playground that helps them move around and turn in different directions. My son enjoys playing with it. I'm not sure he will be playing with it in 6 months. Right now it gets about 10 minutes of attention once a week.

The only way they could have made hex bugs cooler and more fun was to make them glow in the dark! My kids have so much fun setting this up and turning out the lights to watch their glow in the dark hex bugs zoom around! It was totally worth the money and made for a great gift.

This is a very cool set and works wonderfully with the hexbugs it's designed to be used with.
The bugs actually do run from track to track and there are barriers you can set up to keep them penned in certain areas, and the glow in the dark feature is a real hit with the kids!
The joining pieces are a bit fragile though. My kids have broken a few of the interlocking segments and they do not have a history of breaking toys. I've managed to glue the pieces back together since the breaks were clean, but it's only a temporary fix because surely that will not hold forever.
If you can't leave it assembled and extended and all set up but instead have to dismantle it for storage just be careful of the hook and eye pieces!

The glow in the dark habitat cells attach to the white cells which makes this product great! However, the locking/ unlocking tabs for the gates are easier on the white cells. My child loves these habitat sets...and I enjoy watching her and the little nano bugs. They are inexpensive and make terrific gifts;) I find them reasonable in both price and as a child's toy.

We love Hexbugs and we also love glow in the dark items so this set was right up our street.

These are your standard Hexbugs with the added glow feature and they do it very well, so no problems here at all The track on the other hand has a few issues. It doesn't fit that well and has caused my son to force it a little, we therefore have some broken pieces which is a real shame. I'm also suspicious that this black track is slightly more brittle than the standard gray track.

It's a great set but having it break that easy needs sorting out.

I took 2 sets and a bunch of bugs to my parents' house at Christmas. They are in their 60's, us kids are in our 30's. None of them had played with Nanobugs before. I set up a track, and let the bugs loose. Everyone sat transfixed for about 10 minutes when a bug escaped and ran across the table, then the floor. Dad chased after it, and said that for a moment he felt like he wanted to stomp a cockroach. The track was rearranged, and off the bugs went again. Dad laughed at how easy it was to entertain a bunch of college educated people, with such varying interests. 2 of us are engineers, one is a personal trainer, another an art teacher. Us adult kids were just as entertained as the actual kids. Then the actual kids figured out the bugs glow in the dark, and new fun was had.

The grand-kids don't get to visit very often so when they are here I like to be sure they have fun things to do. I made a simple "table" from a cardboard sheet and put that on top of four medium packing boxes (empty). The table worked very well, it is very cheap and can be "put away" or "set up" quickly, and storage is simple.

The Nano bug "track" was set up when they arrived and was an instant hit.

By leaving one or more or the track gates open and starting the bugs off at the same time we had races to see who's bug could escape first. They spent hours playing with them on and off the table.

I found that if you take a piece of sewing thread and attach it to the back of a bug you get a "tail" that seems to add to the enjoyment and can actually tow a small light toy (esp one w wheels). I wound up putting one end of the thread inside the battery compartment and then pinching the thread with the battery compartment lid.They went nuts playing with that option installed.

Heck, I had as much fun playing as they did. Well, almost as much fun.
