My son is 9. We first started collecting Hexbugs a few years ago. He’s honestly at a tough stage. He loves playing on the computer, and he likes to read, but whenever I encourage him to “play,” he sort of flounders. He doesn’t really like to play with his building toys anymore, his origami hobby has fallen by the wayside, and there aren’t a lot of games he can play alone.
Seeing the fun new products from Hexbug like the Hexbug Nano V2 Black Hole, reminds me how much he and his friends enjoy them. Even though Kyle won’t often play alone (though he could), when friends come over, they often gravitate towards his Hexbug sets, reconfiguring the track, or just battling. It always makes me happy to see him actually playing with the things that we tend to collect, and I think I will put Hexbugs on his Christmas list, and then encourage him to get off the screens and involved in some creative play.
The Hexbug Nano V2 Black Hole set is made for a new generation of bugs that can climb up the tube. The retail cost is $49.99 and it includes
- 2 Nano V2 bugs
