My son has enjoyed playing with HEXBUG Nanos for ages and I thought he’d have fun trying out the new HEXBUG Nano Flash Orbit set which is just being launched. This range of playsets also includes the fastest miniature robotic HEXBUG yet.
The HEXBUG Nano Flash Orbit set is aimed at children aged 3 years and over and contains 1 Nano, 1 Flash Nano, 6 flexible rubber walls, and 6 connectors. Both Nanos come with LR44 batteries already so children can play with the set as soon as it’s unboxed.
The idea of the HEXBUG Nano Flash Orbit set is for children to be able to build their own habitat to contain the nano whilst having fun creating new designs. The flexible rubber walls slide over the connectors easily, meaning that even younger children should be able to put their layout together on their own.
The nano and flash nano can be turned on and off with a black switch on their undersides, and the newly designed flash nano has in-built LED lights which will flash away as you play.
You will need a smooth surface to play with the HEXBUG Nano Flash Orbit set as the nano won’t move on carpet.
Once you set the nanos going they will keep moving around their new habitat using the HEXBUG vibration technology. Even if the flip over you’ll find that they will manage to turn themselves back over with their vibrations. It’s all very clever.
The flexible rubber walls mean that it’s easy to create new habitat designs and offer new obstacles for the nano to navigate through.
As well as the HEXBUG Nano Flash Orbit set you can also buy the single pack HEXBUG nano flash which comes in five different colours. There are three other playsets in this new range including the HEXBUG nano Flash Starter Set which includes 3 rubber walls, 3 connectors and a HEXBUG nano Flash. The HEXBUG nano Flash Playground set comes with 8 neon coloured rubber walls and connectors along with two ramps and two merry-go-rounds. This set comes with a nano Flash and two original HEXBUG nanos. The largest set is the HEXBUG nano Flash nanoplex which includes 9 rubber walls, 7 connectors, 7 tracks and 6 curved track, 3 merry-go-rounds and 4 aches as well as 2 nano flash and 2 original nano, providing hours of fun.
