Here Come the Hexbugs #theycanclimb

Last week we had a Hexbug party. Fifteen kids and their moms descended upon our house like a swarm of bugs, all in the name of fun… Hexbug fun. The party was a blast we played, we ate, held a raffle and everyone got to take home a free Hexbug.

Several of the kids were familiar with Hexbugs but for most it was a new experience and the fact that the Hexbug Nano V2 can climb was a new experience for all.

  • Nano V2 Barrel Roll
  • Nano V2 Sky Max
  • Nano V@ Hurricane
  • Nano V2 Black Hole

I think the Black Hole was everyone’s favorite because the bugs dropped down into the vortex.

Jude made sure he got a blue one and most of the girls selected a pink bug. They were also excited to learn that each bug came with a small piece of track so they could continue to let their Hexbug Nano V2 bugs climb at home.

The kids quickly figured out how to take them apart to fetch their Hexbug. Then they began constructing new sets of their own. It was so fun to watch their imagination and problem solving skills kick in.

They nearly gave me a heart attack and were almost stomped. Luckily I figured it out in time and no Hexbugs were harmed in the throwing of this party.
