My kids and their friends love Hexbugs! By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Hexbug Nano, the cute little robot bugs that move around their track. Just when we thought hex bugs couldn’t get any cooler. They did. They now have glow in the dark Hexbugs, glow in the dark Hexbug track, Halloween Zombie Hexbugs, and a new one in the larger Hexbug collection – the Hexbug Larva. The kids just love them.
We had an awesome time having our Hexbug party last week and all the kids had a blast! I love watching the kids play with these. The kids find creative ways to put together the habitat tracks and have fun building and rebuilding them. I think it’s so neat how the bugs seem to have different personalities as they move around their habitats. The kids loved the glow-in-the-dark Hexbugs, Halloween Zombie Hexbugs, the HexBug Nano Glow-in-the-Dark Habitats, and the Hexbug larva. Our party was during the day (and everyone couldn’t fit in the closet) so it wasn’t dark enough to see the glowing track, but even just the black track when it is not glowing is still very cool. That night we did shut out the lights and the glowing track and bugs are awesome!
If you are having a Hexbug party, we found tons of great themed food ideas. The kids favorites are the worms and dirt (pudding with crumbled oreos and of course gummy bugs), and buggy brownies ( powdered sugar dusted brownies with plastic bug decorations) . I’m not sure what it is, but something about bugs on food kids just love, lol.
The Hexbug larva was a big hit too. These amazing little robotic creatures can sense objects in front of them and will change direction. The kids love watching them and putting their hands in front of them to make them change direction. The way they move is very cool, and the way they react to stuff in front of them makes them seem alive.
My favorite is the Halloween Zombie Hexbugs. They each come in their own little coffin and have a skeleton that clips onto the bug. So cute and the kids loved them.
All of the new Hexbugs and tracks are perfect for Halloween and as we discovered at our party are sure to be on many Christmas lists as well
