Hexbug Warriors: Battling Robots (Review and Giveaway)

My 5yo son became a huge fan of Hexbugs last year, and what was once a few cool little toys grew into a massive collection and play arena. I completely understand his enthusiasm for them. Hexbugs combines the size and features of bugs with the intrigue of exposed robotic workings, and they are mesmerizing to watch as they find their way through any maze and around any obstacle.

The newest addition to the Hexbug universe – Hexbug Warriors: Battling Robots – kicks everything up a notch.

Hexbug Warriors are designed for battle. Each bug has a shock sensor inside, tracking how many hits it takes. When set into Battle Mode, a “health meter” flashes between green, yellow, and red, indicating just how close the Hexbug Warrior is to ultimately deactivating (they can be reset after each battle). Or, you can play with them in Training Mode, which gives unlimited health and allows a player to get to know how each bug operates before pitting them against an opponent. Each Hexbug Warrior comes with custom battle gear which can be removed and refitted, or swapped with other gear from other bugs.

Hexbug Warriors can battle it out in either a Battle Arena or Battle Stadium.

Hexbug Warriors Battle Arena and Battle Stadium

We were sent a Hexbug Warriors Battle Stadium for review, which included all we needed to have “Caldera” and “Tronikon” (two of the four types of Hexbug Warriors) battle it out.

My son really enjoyed the buzzing sounds and flashing lights of the Hexbug Warriors, as well as the spin and zip of their battle gear. There was a lot going on, and it made everything a bit more exciting. And once he realized he could mix and match their gear, he had fun trying all types of weapon and armor combinations.

    He LOVES bugs! He even has several big rubber ones that he carries around. This would be a good way to introduce him to robotics!

    My boys love all things robotic, all things that fight, and bugs. As soon as they saw these they went on the Christmas list!

    My boys LOVE bugs. It’s funny though, my 4 year old was scream and run petrified of bugs until my 2 year old got old enough to notice bugs. His complete lack of fear helped ease the fears of his older brother who will at least take the look but don’t touch approach now. My 2 year old s bug obsessed though. lol

    My son loves bugs. He has a hex bug nano that he is supposed to keeping his room but I can’t tell you the number of times i have had to dig that thing out from under the washer, dryer or fridge.

    All of my children live robotics! My 8 year old daughter impressed her uncle with her ability to pick up bugs that most of us won’t touch lol! =)
