Hexbug Nano Elevation Habitat Set

Hexbug Nano Elevation Habitat Set

Spring 2011 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Price: $49.99

Our little builders and racers love everything about the Hexbug Nano Elevation Habitat Set. The track pieces of this sizable set are interchangeable, allowing endless variations to the track. The set comes with two Hexbug Nanos, meaning children can race them and see which Hexbug goes through which opening. The Hexbugs themselves are little robotic "bugs" that vibrate and move around almost like a real bug would. The "habitat" consists of four hexagonal platforms, a ramp, many "track" pieces, little stop/go signs, and stilts to hold up the second level. The boys especially loved the stop signs. The sign only flips one way, so if the Hexbug tries to get through on the "stop" side, it can't, which keeps the bugs moving in one direction on the track. We would recommend this product to families with boys or girls.

Parents should note that the best aspect of the Hexbug Habitat sets is that each piece is interchangeable. This permits innumerable ways to set up the track, and if one piece is lost or misplaced, the track is still just as usable.
