Hexbug Nano

Skuttle skuttle...

Unless you fancy humiliating yourself on I’m a Celeb* it’s not that easy finding compliant bugs to play with. More to the point, real bugs are ‘orrible. So wouldn’t it be cool, not to mention bizarre, if some geeky loon introduced a range of battery-operated robotic creepy crawlies for your viewing pleasure? They have, and they’re called Nano Hexbugs.

Watch them scuttle in this video

Impossibly titchy, these autonomous microbots scuttle across floors and desks in a hypnotically random fashion, just like real bugs. Simply turn ‘em on and watch in rapt fascination. They even flip over and change direction when they hit obstacles. Clever, eh!


The Habitat all set up

There are five different coloured specimens to collect, and you can even buy the luxe Habitat Set, a maze of interconnecting runs, corridors and cells in which to infuriate the two included bugs. Of course for the full Hexbug experience you’ll need to buy a proper infestation of the little blighters, so get ordering before they scurry out of stock. Eek! What’s that on your arm?

*We realise you’re probably not a celeb but that didn’t stop Aggro Santos.

Customer Reviews

My kids have gone mad for the habitat set and considering it comes with 2 of the newest bugs that are usually around £8 each I think that £20 is a fair price. The pieces are very sturdy and easy to fit together and my 4 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son have had loads of fun racing them and making them fight in the tunnels. Even if you just let them run about it is hypnotic to watch and everyone who comes to visit has been fascinated with them too. We had one of the nanos on its own before but the habitat has increased the fun much more than I would have imagined. Fab!

They do look cool, but it does seem a bit expensive for something (IMHO) that will only get used once on Christmas day. But saying that, this is the cheapest I have seen them.

Firebox says: I'm sure adults and children will get a lot of fun times out of this product not just on Christmas day. I mean who wouldn't want to play with bugs that aren't real, it seems like the perfect idea.
