Our family celebrated a late Christmas with friends of ours at the beginning of the year. Of course we had a gift exchange and each of our children got a container with this weird thing in it. I had only seen these once before and didn’t give them a second thought.
Our kids on the other hand knew exactly what they were and ripped the container open as quickly as they could. While these electronic creatures were twirling on the floor our friends informed us that these creatures(hexbugs) have their own little habitats that they can interact with. That of course peaked all of our attention and got the kids thinking about what they can do with their Christmas money.
So the following day guess what we did… yup, we went to the store to purchase a habitat for each of the children. So far I have seen these hexbugs at Target and Wal-Mart and online at amazon. The ones that seem to be most popular are the nano hexbugs which are the ones our kids got plus they have little habitats unlike the other hexbugs. They run on little watch batteries and may last a while but in our house the poor guys were dead the first day (they are mildly entertaining to watch).
-They are safe for ages 3 and up
-Some of them glow in the dark
-They capture your attention like watching fire burn
-You can purchase cool little habitats that all link together
-You can watch them battle
-Its the only bug I will allow in this house
The kids bought 2 of these:
One of this set:
And one of this set:
They put them all together and made this track:
There is also a really cool zip line:
Guess what on my kids birthday wish list…

This is my daughters homework. She was supposed to create a magazine for her POW (paragraph of the week) all about mother’s day. She has shown interest in working with Photoshop. So for this pow and last pow she has prepared them using Photoshop. This animation is short and simple, but it is a start. Enjoy the artwork of a tween baby.
I can not escape it, it is inevitable, every time dad leaves us in the car to get gas, check the tire pressure, go into the store to pick up an item, talk to someone outside the car, I have to endure this!! Such a daddy’s boy… seriously, I do not know how this happened. Wasn’t I the one who carried him for nine months and nurtured him, gave him life!! I feel so unloved!
Don’t get me wrong though, as much as I love my kid, I love that he loves dad even more… who do you think he goes to when his diaper weighs 10 pounds??
