Want to get your teen off the couch? Want to buy something your spouse might actually like and have fun with? You may want to think about purchasing a Hubsan X4 H107C camera quad copter.

This Hubsan quadcopter allows you to take videos from the air with a mini video camera built in. However, sometimes RC copters can be a bit annoying or frustrating. How does the Hubsan H107C live up to its potential? Let’s take a look.

Hubsan X4 Quadcopter Video

Hubsan Camera H107C X4 Quadcopter Features

* 4 channels for flight stability
* Video camera
* Rechargeable battery
* Comes with spare rotors and protector
* Camera takes micro SDHC memory card (not included)
* Controller takes 4 AAA batteries (not included)
* Age 14+

Hubsan Quadcopter with Camera X4 H107C Review

The Hubsan X4 has a broad range of mobility with an on-board rechargeable battery. Although the Hubsan quadcopter’s battery is on-board, it’s small and lightweight, meaning it doesn’t interfere with the vehicle’s flight ability. With a body compared to a big egg, the X4 can easily be maneuvered by both beginners and experienced RC copter flyers. Color scheme choices include red/black or green/black.

By installing a micro SD memory card, the Hubsan X4 H107C quad copter can take videos while in flight. Although the videos are not HD, it’s still a cool pro to have a quad copter able to take videos. Do you want a shot from above a tall tree overlooking the forest? Are you curious to know what your neighbors have in their backyard? You’ll have access to these shots and more with the Hubsan X4. You can take shots of pretty much anything at intricate angles.

The Hubsan X4 H107C comes with a USB cable to recharge the battery and give you the ability to upload the videos to your computer from your memory card (be sure your memory card has this function). You can also remove the memory card and download recordings directly to your computer using your designated method. Post the videos anywhere from social media sites to emails to show your family or friends.

Hubsan X4 collageAlthough this aspect is more of a common sense “con”, you need to realize the propellers can be damaged if you crash against a hard surface at a speed. However, if you purchase the Hubsan X4, it will come with spare parts and a protector for the rotors. If you’re a novice at flying a quadcopter, using the protector is a good idea until you gain knowledge of the controls. If you use up all spare parts, they can easily be purchased online.

The flying time for the Quad Copter is only 7 minutes, therefore, the videos you take can only last about that long. If you purchase a spare battery, you can charge the old one and use the spare to keep flying. If children are using the copter, be sure to supervise them to check they have the quad copter under control. The quad copter can become lost if it’s flown in an open field. One reviewer said the quad copter easily reached 100 feet in height.

Be sure to read the PDF manual online especially when first putting it together, charging it, and flying it. Make sure you purchase the right type of SD card, which can be found in the manual. The price for the Hubsan quadcopter with camera is reasonable and it can be the perfect gift for both children and adults – a lot of fun and easy to use.

The Air Hogs RC Zero Gravity Laser Racer is said to be able to climb walls and drive around on ceilings as well as the floor.

But does it measure up to buyers’ expectations? We’ll take a look at what customers thought in this Air Hogs Zero Gravity RC car review.

Air Hogs RC Zero Gravity Car Review Video

Air Hogs Zero Gravity Laser Racer RC Car Features

* Infrared light tracking sensor technology
* Drives on floors, walls and even ceilings
* Lightweight for climbing walls and ceilings
* Works on clean, smooth surfaces
* Comes in red or blue
* Takes 6 AA batteries (not supplied)
* Age 8+

Air Hogs RC Zero Gravity Laser Racer Review

Since a rather grand entrance onto the market decades ago, remote controlled vehicles of all types have been a resounding success and a hit with both adults and children. There really is a kind of magnetism towards owning and using at least one of these great vehicles! They allow your children the thrills of being able to drive a virtual vehicle for themselves.

Using these remote controlled vehicles has been proven to assist with your child’s development too, in particular with their spatial awareness, eye to hand co ordination, and their technological and engineering skills. There are so many remote control vehicles on the market today and it is fun for adults and children alike to test them out and compare them with one another. However, this Air Hogs Zero Gravity car does have some unique features which will especially appeal to your children; once these are seen they will not be able to wait to test out their new car!

Firstly, there is the new and exciting technology to consider. To operate this car you need to use the hand held controller to shoot out a laser beam of light towards the car. The clever sensor will immediately register where the light has hit and the car will begin to move towards this point. This means that your child is in control of where the vehicle moves, and they can lead it using the laser beam by themselves.

This Air Hogs RC Zero Gravity vehicle is very easy too for younger children to play with and understand how to operate it. There are no complicated instructions or confusing wheel controls to learn how to operate. You simply have to use the remote control to point the laser beam light in the direction you wish the car to travel and the car will move there immediately.

Secondly, this remote control vehicle does not just simply move along your floor’s surface like many standard toy remote cars and that’s where the fun ends. Instead, it uses a special suction device to climb up the walls, along them and even upside down on the ceiling; this is due to it being made of lightweight foam, an excellent choice for this product. Many satisfied customers report that they have had enormous fun racing their vehicle all over their walls and ceilings!

Air Hogs Zero Gravity collageSo, you might wonder why some customers have only awarded this remote vehicle three stars, a fairly average score for such a great product. Well they may have given this rating because this car’s performance can be influenced by exactly how your home is laid out and constructed. This car doesn’t travel along thicker piled carpets or uneven floor surfaces. It may also struggle to move well upon walls which have a rougher textures, such as bricks or uneven wallpapering.

The Air Hogs RC Xero Gravity car runs best on smooth wooden floors which have no gaps in between floor boards, and also upon flat painted walls. Please also be patient when using the light beam and try not to move it around too quickly as the car needs a little time to sense the light. Your car is also quite noisy when in operation so it may be a good idea to operate it further away from those who are sensitive to sound! Also, place your car with consideration as to where you wish it to head towards as it cannot sense objects which are nearby, and therefore can get stuck in corners.

However, if you have the right type of surface for it, which most people do somewhere in their homes, the Air Hogs Laser Zero Gravity car is a real winner with people of all ages. It boasts some unique features, has real novelty value and is so much fun to play with. Although there is some room for improvement with its responsiveness, it comes at an affordable price and is popular with new and old remote control car users alike.

Penny Complete SkateboardPenny Boards Complete 22-inch Skateboard Review

Our rating: 4.5 stars

The Penny skateboard has a great retro appearance and is available in a range of cool designs and attractive colors.

Penny has a long reputation for producing excellent high performance boards, so if you are thinking of getting a new board, it’s definitely worth taking a look at some of the reasons why Penny boards have been popular for such a long time.

>>> Click here to see today’s price at Amazon.com <<<

Penny Skateboards Review Video

Penny Board Complete Skateboard Features

* Comes pre-assembled
* Over 30 colors/designs to choose from
* Measures 22.5 x 6 inches (57 x 15 cm)
* Age approx 8 to adult (but taller teens and adults might prefer a longer board)

Penny Complete Skateboard Review

Penny Complete Skateboard colorsThe standard 22-inch length skateboard can be found in Penny’s Complete range. This size is suitable for kids and shorter teens and adults. Any taller than average adult should choose a longer board, such as one of Penny’s 27-inch boards from the Nickel range.

Being compact and light in weight, the retro boards in the Complete range are very convenient to carry around. In use they give you a fast ride, with easy steering control and great mobility.

The deep crosshatch design across the top of a Penny skateboard does provide some grip. This is something you really need on a plastic molded board, which would become too slippery in wet weather without any grip. If you want to, you can add grip tape on top of the crosshatching, but this is not necessary and the grip on this board does become greater with use.

It’s not the cheapest board available, but you can get a good deal on the price and you will get the quality. With a Penny skateboard you know that you are never going to have any difficulty in getting replacement parts when you need them, for example if you want a new set of wheels.

You do need to be sure, however, that you have a genuine Penny product. There are some fakes around, and you will not find it so easy to get spares if it’s not a genuine Penny skateboard.

You can avoid imitations by making sure that the seller has a good reputation and by checking the board very carefully. A genuine Penny skateboard is one that is made in Australia. If you can’t see where the board was made, then it will be a fake from another country.

When choosing Penny boards you will have a good choice of different colors for the board and for the wheels. Some stunning designs are also available. Do be aware though, if you pick a decorated board, that the design will have been painted on.

Some skaters prefer a board that has a design molded in, because they know how a surface can get scratched and that paint can peel off when it’s damaged. If you are concerned that in time the painted design is going to spoil the board’s appearance, you should choose a plain Penny skateboard, which is made of colored plastic.

A Penny skateboard is a good choice when you want to have a great looking retro board molded in colorful plastic. It will give a smooth ride, with a better grip than other molded plastic boards. You will be able to move about freely and have a lot of fun with this board.

Valtech Magna-Tiles® 100 Piece Clear Colors Set Review
Our rating: 5 stars
Magna-TilesMagna-Tiles Clear Colors fit together to form whatever shapes or constructions a child might want to create. There are many different colors and shapes, and the Magnatiles are held together with magnetic strips in the edges.

These magnetic tiles can be laid flat on the surface of a table to make geometric patterns, or they can be used to construct pyramids, cubes and 3D models of any shape.

They’re versatile – but they’re not cheap. So what do buyers think of them? Let’s take a look.

>>> Click here to see today’s price at Amazon.com <<<

MagnaTiles 100 Piece Set Review Video

Magna Tiles Clear Colors 100 Piece Set Features

* Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 100 piece set includes the following pieces:
* 50 small squares (3 inch by 3 inch)
* 4 large squares (6 inch by 6 inch)
* 11 right triangles
* 20 equilateral triangles
* 15 isosceles trianges
* Age 3 and over, up to teens

Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 100 Piece Set Review

Schools approve of Magna-Tiles Clear Colors, and also the opaque version of these magnetic tiles, because there is some educational benefit to be gained from playing with these. Young children start to learn about geometry as they start to construct different shapes from the tiles. For instance, they can easily see how a square is formed from two right-angled triangles.

Clear color tiles are available in the Magna-Tiles 100 piece set or smaller sets. Some parents might think this is an expensive toy, but with a hundred tiles to play with, two or more children can be involved in creating a number of shapes and different constructions at the same time. Some parents who start with the smaller packs do buy more than one set of MagnaTiles Clear Colors for their children, but with a box of 100 to play with, there is no need to have more than one set.

Magna-Tiles collageChildren like to create things with Magna-Tiles for other toys that they play with regularly. Older kids can design and create things like castles, fortresses, garages, prisons and any other type of building. The clear colors are more popular because they are see-through, so boys and girls can place their favorite figures inside something they construct and can see where they are.

Apart from designing buildings, constructing cubes and pyramids and making rocket shapes, Magna-Tiles can also be used to make imaginary creatures. There is no limit to the number or type of shape a child can create with them.

A MagnaTiles Clear Colors set is not recommended as a toy for a child under the age of three, although younger infants who have been given them do appear to love the tiles. Any child under three should be closely supervised when using Magna-Tiles, because of the potential danger of swallowing or choking.

A three-year-old can enjoy making random shapes on a flat surface, while an older child will use the magnetic tiles for more imaginative 3D constructions. The best thing about choosing this toy is that it will be something a child or children will want to play with for years, as they grow in knowledge and discover how to build more complex objects.

A MagnaTiles 100 piece set certainly has long term value, and the tiles are popular with children of all ages. It is also worth the cost because of the educational value. The price starts to look even more reasonable when you consider that the 100 piece set of Magna Tiles Clear Colors has earned a 4.9 rating at Amazon.com, with hundreds of reviews from happy customers.

Magna-Tiles Clear Colors are highly recommended because they are so versatile, long lasting and provide a lot of fun for children of any age. As well as being educational, they encourage creativity and enhance the use of a child’s imagination. A rare 5 star rating from us!

Whether you’re a kid, teenager, or adult, the MiP balancing robot could be the perfect gift for you. At 8 in. tall, the WowWee Mip robot balances easily on two wheels, has its own unique personality, and a handy tray for serving whatever you want to put on it.

The MiP WowWee robot comes in two color schemes: white with black trim, and black with silver trim. Or you can buy the set and have one of each. But, before you buy, read on to see a few things you should know.

MiP Robot Review Video


>>> Click here to see today’s price at Amazon.com <<<

WowWee MiP Robot Features

* Choose MiP Robot white or black/silver colors
* Approx 8 inches tall
* 7 modes of play
* Comes with balancing tray
* Control with hand gestures or smart device
* App works with latest Apple iOS and Android devices
* Takes 4 AAA batteries (not supplied)
* Age 8+

MiP Balancing Robot Review

Owning your own robot is no longer just the stuff of science fiction. For some time now, robots have been available as toys, although the technology hasn’t advanced to the point where their actions could encompass serving our every need, like in some science fiction movies.

However, the WowWee MiP robot comes very close to reaching that ideal and it does so in a fun way. Although he’s only 8 in. all, it can accomplish a lot of things, like stacking things on its tray, has a personality, and can even dance, or more correctly, gyrate on its wheels as though it were dancing.

MiP Robots 2The MiP personal robot can be controlled by either hand gestures, or a smart phone, so there’s no remote control for you to lose. Apps can be downloaded from the Apple Store, or Google Play and it will work with both Apple and Android (check http://www.wowwee.com/mip/compatibility for a list of compatible smart device models).

Even without a smart phone, you can have a lot of fun with your WowWee robot. The motion sensor technology built into the MiP balancing robot allows you to control the robot with the movement of your hands. However, there is a range limit for receiving the hand signals, so you need to stay within a few feet for them to work. And as far as his personality goes, you can alter his responses so that they are either positive or negative. This way, if you do something to make him angry, he’ll be able to let you know.

The MiP robot toy doesn’t really talk, at least not like humans, but he does make audible sounds that will get your attention. He will even be able to sense obstacles in his path and go around them, while hand signals allows you to access seven modes of play programmed into his memory, including dancing, roaming, stacking, tricks, and cage. Using a smart phone or tablet to control the MiP robot gives you even more game options.

The WowWee MiP robot comes complete with tray, sticker sheet, stand and operator’s manual. It’s powered by 4 AAA batteries, which are not included, but be careful operating it on carpeted floors, as that tends to shorten battery life.

Naturally, bare, or tiled, floors are better, but make sure they are cleaned, as pet and human hair can get tangled in the wheels and hamper operation. Or, you could always operate the MiP balancing robot on a table top.

Final, the MiP robot is a fun gift for the whole family to enjoy and, for this level of technology, it is amazingly affordable. With its own unique personality, and its ability to interpret hand signals, it is sure to bring joy to your family for years to come.

There can be no better surprise for a small girl than to see her very favorite Disney princess as a doll that is actually her own size. Frozen My Size dolls from Disney are 38 inches tall and any little girl will think herself really lucky to have Anna or Elsa around as a friend of her own height.

And what do parents think? Let’s take a look at some of the customer reviews.

Frozen My Size Doll Review Video

Disney Frozen My Size Doll Features

* Choose from Elsa or Anna
* Dolls are over 3 feet tall
* Portable and light weight
* Posable – will stand, or can sit
* Clothes and accessories to suit the movie characters
* Age 3+

Frozen My Size Dolls Review

The Frozen My Size Elsa and Anna dolls are only available as a limited edition. There are of course many smaller dolls available of these two Disney characters, and most girls who love the movie and the characters will probably own at least one. However, anyone who gets to own one or both Frozen characters in her own size will have something that is really special that will give more pleasure than any other doll.

Both characters look really good in My Size. They are wearing their familiar outfits in the right colors, looking just as they do in the movie. Elsa is wearing her beautiful glittery turquoise dress and Anna’s costume from the movie has been designed to look its best. Both dolls come with extra accessories. Anna has her slippers and Elsa has her own jewelry.

Frozen My Size dolls collageAnother detail that girls absolutely love is the removable clip that is shaped like a flower. This is featured on the clothing of each Frozen My Size doll. The brooch, which lights up, can be worn by any child who wants to have it on her own clothing.

Where there are negative reviews they are usually because the price of these dolls varies, and since they are limited edition, you may see them on sale at a lot more than the regular price of around $60-$70. Check the current price at Amazon through our link below, or shop around.

Because of their size, pre-school girls really love these dolls and think of them as being best friends. My Size dolls make ideal companions to be played with all day long. These dolls don’t make a sound, but children can enjoy having imaginary conversations with their new friend.

Frozen My Size dolls are just the two latest dolls to become available in a range of Disney Princesses standing at the height of an average four-year-old child. Rapunzel, Cinderella, Ariel and others Disney princesses in the My Size range have already proved to be very popular.

There is of course a huge demand for the Disney Frozen My Size Anna and Elsa dolls right now and if you want one, you will need to grab them as soon as you are able to find a retailer with these 38-inch Disney princesses in stock.

One thing you can be sure of about Disney is that they know exactly what pre-school kids like. By introducing Anna and Elsa as Frozen My Size dolls they have created the sort of toy that little girls dream of – a favorite Disney character that appears to be much more real than any small doll. Girls of a pre-school age can now have Elsa and Anna living with them in their own home, as a lifelike companion that is the same height as themselves.

Kurio Xtreme Android Tablet Review Video

Kurio Extreme Features

* Use with Bluetooth or WiFi
* 16 GB of memory built in
* Front and rear cameras for video and still photos
* Uses Android 4.4 KitKat operating system
* Games and apps are preloaded, ready for use out of the box

Kurio Xtreme Kids Tablet Review

The consumer’s market and technology is booming with tablets and other personal devices for work, reading, and pleasure. Although these devices may be too expensive and too delicate to hand to a child or toddler, there is a solution – tablets designed for kids. We’ve reviewed the LeapPad and Innotab kids’ tablets in the past, and today we’re looking at the latest Kurio kids tablet, the Kurio Xtreme.

The Xtreme Kurio tablet is Bluetooth accessible and works with Netflix, Youtube, and Skype, along with dual cameras and a motion sensing gaming ability. Parents can manage what kids do, for how long, and block applications for as many as eight users.

It also comes with a brightly colored silicone bumper case to help compensate for the bumps, oops, and drops. The case can also be removed to have a more sophisticated look that may be preferred by older children.

The tablet has an Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB or Ram, and a 7 inch display, weighing 4 pounds shipping weight, and runs on Android OS. Things like Cut the Rope and Spotify are preloaded for instant play and use when first taken out of the box.

Kurio Xtreme collageThe Kurio Xtreme is also designed to keep its users moving with interactive single or multiplayer games like running, swimming, skiing, and other active games. A stand is also included to help with motion dedicated games and to allow for there to be no need for controllers.

It comes with a Genius Internet Filter System, which scans through potentially harmful websites, and anything that is not age appropriate – constantly protecting your child while they access the internet. You can also manage and control how much time each user profile is allowed to access the internet! Great for those who did their chores (longer time), and those who just need to finish their homework (perhaps an hour or two).

You can purchase unique exercise and learning applications through the online Kurio Store, or you can even download from Google Play Store. On the negative side, some tablets were reported to run at a slow pace. This may just have been a few faulty tablets and if you have this problem, it’s best to return it.

Another bonus, is that you get many applications and games for free, thus making the device worth its slightly larger price tag and a fabulous gift for children and the parents because they aren’t making a ton of extra purchases.

The tablet is intended for children ages 5-12. However, it is safety approved for children as young as 3 years old. The high quality and duo cameras allow optimum camera use for chatting, photos, and recordings.

The Kurio Xtreme device is a premium options for children to learn, exercise, and explore while remaining safe. If you want to give your kids what they really want and need right now, but want it also to grow with them and last more than a couple years, then the Kurio Xtreme could be your device!

Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Review

For decades Crayola has been bringing artistic children everything they could possibly need to express themselves in the most creative way possible. This year, with the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection, they may have finally outdone themselves.

For children with fashion design aspirations, this design kit is nothing short of amazing. Using the 20 page design book, stencils, colored pencils, and Super Tip markers, your child can gain a fashion designer’s real world experience while brainstorming and creating their own unique creations.

Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion openAfter her design is complete, she can see her creations being “worn” by virtual models as they walk the runway using her Android or Apple tablet and smartphone. Included with the application are additional templates for female and male fashion designs that can be printed for free. Your child even has the ability to choose from various international fashion hub locations to stage an amazing virtual fashion show.

This is the exact process that professional designers use to design their own creations. From idea to print form, and finally electronic interface, your child will love knowing they are working just like their favorite designers.

The Crayola Virtual Design Pro series also offers a Cars Collection, seen in the video above. Any creative child with a love of cars is sure to love designing their car using the “drawing board” of the sketch book. He or she can, then, upload their design using the app and watch them race on screen.

One of the features of the Crayola Virtual Design Fashion Collection that your child will love is the ability to immediately share her creations with the rest of the world using her email. After your child has designed her creation on paper, she can scan the results, decide on a skin tone and hairstyle, and accessorize with the perfect jewelry and shoes. Using the fashion show application, she can now share the electronic version of her work.

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a child or young adult who loves fashion, this is it. The Virtual Design fashion set is designed for easy portability. When your child is done for the day, she can simply fold it over and snap it shut. Using the convenient carrying handle, your young designer can easily take it with them anywhere they want to go.

If your child likes Project Runway, enjoys creative arts or is obsessed with fashion and design, this Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection is definitely a gift worth giving. Not only is it cost effective, but it encourages self-expression and imagination. Who knows – you may just start the world’s next top fashion designer on the path to stardom!

Our rating: 4 stars

The LeapFrog LeapBand is an activity tracker, and what is unique about this product is that kids simply wear it on their wrists. It’s the first of its kind and the idea is to be able to play physical games using this wrist sensor, getting your child off the couch and moving to play these games in a totally interactive way.

So how does it perform in practice? Let’s see what reviewers thought.

* Parental controls allow you to set targets and time limits

LeapFrog LeapBand Review

Think back to when the Wii was first released with a hand held controller which didn’t work unless the person was standing up and prepared to move around. Sitting down to play was not an option. A lot of parents value the way this fun activity keeps kids moving.

The Leap Frog band is the next best thing, and way cheaper; it is innovative and more compact than any other game controllers. Encouraging kids to be active and to exercise to benefit their health is more important now than it ever was. This device tracks a child’s progress, much like the fitness trackers designed for adults.

Of course, an activity tracker designed for adults would be too complicated and delicate for kids to wear, so Leap Frog has developed the Leap Band. Suitable for kids from the age of four to seven years old, it has vibrant colors and is extremely strong and durable. Given how rough kids can be, this is a plus!

LeapBand collageThe LeapBand is also very easy to use and is reasonable priced – music to a parent’s ears. Children can choose from three different colors: green, blue, or pink.

It boasts many different activities that will encourage your child to move around. The simpler commands for younger children might include actions like rolling around on the floor, wrestling a lion, so if you happen to encounter your child doing this, it is likely the device told your child to do it.

The LeapBand also comes with advanced parental controls, but different than many other devices kids like to play with. With this device it is not about controlling what they can access, because the device is not connected to the Internet. Parents can choose games and challenges that will suit their child and they can put limits on time spent playing the game. One piece of good advice is for parents to mute the sound as – like so many toys – it can get annoying at times.

This device does more than allow your child to play games – it can teach them how to tell the time. One of the features that kids enjoy the most is the animal that appears on the screen and assists your child to complete the challenges. Your child is able to choose which animal they have set to their device, and your child has many choices from real to imaginary creatures – penguins, unicorns, dragons and many more.

The LeapFrog LeapBand is compatible with certain LeapFrog tablet devices as well as your own smart devices when you wish to store data and download more challenges. Because the LeapBand does not access the Internet, you will need to use an online device that is compatible and connect to it to transfer data. These extra games come at additional cost, and that can add up fast if you get a lot of them. However, the LeapBand does come with a reasonable number of games already loaded on its storage drive.

To get kids motivated, the system rewards your child with medals when they advance to certain levels or attain a special goal. All of this data is tracked via a motion tracking device, called an “accelerometer”. One of the negatives of this device is that it does not have a pedometer, which would track how far kids have traveled while playing the game. Some parents have commented that the device is a little too chunky for their child, but this will depend on the child and his or her age and size.

This is a good product for getting your child active, for those who don’t want to go with the Leap TV which has a lot more options included. The Leap Band however is much lower in price – and it’s also lower than the LeapBand’s direct competitor, the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch. This device gives parents the desired result of getting their child moving, so for the price and the amount of games and features you can add, it is probably your best choice.

Hexbug Vex Robotics Review

Hexbug Vex robotics all

Children who enjoy mechanical or robotic toys will be sure to love Hexbug Vex Robotics. These toys come in sets which contain hundreds of pieces. Putting the set together is just as much fun as playing with the finished toy. It can take two hours or more to complete, depending on your child’s age and skill. Younger children may require assistance.

If you were to compare the price of the Hexbug Vex Robotic toy to the prices of the other robotic toys you would find that it is actually quite affordable. There are several similar sets selling for far more. The Hexbug sets aren’t only affordable, they are also cooler than the rest. They are designed to appeal to children ages 8 and up. Even teenagers will love to get a Hexbug set under the tree this year.

Each kit contains a CPU “brain” which has a distance sensor, and approximately 300 hundred pieces that easily snap together. Your child will be able to create a robotic ant, spider, scarab, or strandbeast.

Each bug acts and moves differently. The ant can climb over things instead of going around them, and te spider is able to turn it’s head all the way around. The scarab moves along quickly, keeping its body close to the ground.

The pictures of the Hexbug Vex robots that are available online do not do them justice. The bugs are actually quite a bit larger than they appear to be in the pictures. You’ll get a better idea by watching the video at the top of the page.

The Hexbug Vex Robotic toys are actually intelligent. They are true robots. The completed bugs are smart enough to know when they are near an object. They will sense it and go around. How cool is that?

What’s even better is that each different kit is compatible with the other kits. You can never get your child too many kits because they can always keep their original bugs and then also can mix and match pieces from other sets to create their own unique bugs.

The Hexbug Vex Robotic kits all come with a remote. Your child will be able to control where their bug goes, or can switch the setting so that the bug can decide where it wants to go by itself. The kits come with absolutely everything your child will need to build the Hexbug. You will not have to make any additional purchases.

Each kit is a different color and size. It’s hard to choose which one to get because they are all so cool. This is definitely a toy worth checking out. Kids who love robots and insects will be overjoyed to receive the Hexbug Vex Robotics toy. You may even find yourself wanting to help build and play with your child’s Hexbug with them. They really are that much fun.
