HEXBUG: Nano Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Laura #201!

A toy that behaves like an electric bug?!? Really - is there such a thing? Yep, and HEXBUG sent me one to review.



My kids thought these little critters were cute and playful. Turn them on with the flip of a small switch underneath each bug and watch them scurry all over the place. They really get around completely on their own. When they bump into something, don't worry, they don't get stuck. They keep right on moving and flip over when they land on their back.




These bugs come with batteries included. No worries about having to hunt one down. Everything you need to get started comes right in the handy little tube.


My cats went crazy over these bugs. They're fast moving and really provide endless hours of entertainment for my curious kitties!

Be sure you use them on a hard surface.
