My boys like to do activities where they compete against each other. My oldest found one of the Hexbug nanos I brought back from BlogHer and thought it was funny to watch it zoom across the counter.
Then we got a battle board and two other larger Hexbugs and he was ready to do battle. It’s interesting how he watched them and started dissecting how they battled. He watched them go against each other and figured out weaknesses and how they went around the board.
The batteries definitely last a long time because he’s been playing them non stop. I also didn’t realize they come apart. =) I came home one day after work to find one of them in a pile of pieces on the floor. My son had to explain that’s what you can do with them. Whew.
We have one nano Hexbug and were sent two Warriors for review. I had no idea what they even did. How is it that kids figure this stuff out so easily?
You turn each of the Warriors on, we got the green Viridia and the yellow Tronikon, put them on the arena and they zip around the arena trying to knock each other off. The boys put their nano Hex Bug in the arena with the Warrior and the poor nano was shoved right over the side.
Individually, the Warriors and nanos would make perfect gifts/stocking stuffers. I think both boys would love to be able to customize an arena! They can interchange armor and weapons so the battling can be epic! With the way my boys think and compete, this could really become interesting. =)
