   Hexbugs are colorful little robots that react to sound and have their own object sensors. They run on a tiny battery and can respond to handclaps and steers clear of objects all by itself. They are intelligent little insects.  When the bug bumps or touches something or hears a voice or sound, it stops or reverses direction. Besides being cute, the robotic insects were recipients of iParenting Media's Best Products of 2009.

    The HexBug Micro Robotic Creatures are available in different shapes and colors - red, pink, blue, green, black and orange.  Each one has six legs, hooked claws and antennas. The original HexBug, HexBug Crab, Nano, Ant and HexBug Inchworm are small enough to fit in your pocket or hand. Each runs on two batteries which are included. They are for children 8 and over.
   The HexBug Original moves forward until he comes to an obstacle. He detects this with his two antenna and then changes his direction. He will also change directions by clapping your hand. 
   The HexBug Crab reacts to light. He moves according to its internal movement pattern until he has found a dark place to hide. There he will stay until you wake him up by clapping your hand. He will then start to move again.

   The HexBug Inchworm comes with a remote control, which you can use to move him forward, backward or make him turn around. The remote control has two channels so that you can control two Inchworms simultaneously. 

   The HexBug Ant has a translucent plastic shell so you can see all the inner workings on top of a set of gears and motors. The Ant is propelled by six rapidly spinning wheels and gets its directional instructions from the dual antennae in front and the wire sensor in the rear. When the Ant senses an object at any of these sensors it reverses directions.

   The HexBug Nano vibrates it's way across surfaces and even has it's own Nano Habitat available separately. It comes with batteries installed and is ready to play with.
