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…
Today is the day I chose to open a wordpress account. I imported my posts from blogger, so if you read anything prior to this post there may be some technical verbiage. Seems as though some of the HTML transferred into the post.
I will be cleaning it out soon so hang in there.
Thank you for checking this blog out!!
This one I took while driving to school!! Meaning… I could have swerved right into the person beside me, flipped repeatedly 5 times over and over then landing in the middle of the main highway just to be slammed into by the oncoming traffic, but photography is worth it, am I right? 😀
