Bought this as a birthday gift after my son had so much with a similar set at his cousin's house. Yes, the bugs do get stuck, but you simply tap on the maze and it usually always corrects it's self... My son has fun with doing that as well. He likes the randomness/unexpected movement and speed of the bugs. Great busy toy! I would rather him have hexbug time than TV time. As for flimsy construction others are complaining about, there may be a few parts that don't seem sturdy together, but I don't view it as an issue.

Your child will quickly get tired of constantly needing to correct the bugs once they leave the tunnels. The box clearly states that the bugs are self righting, but they are not! The YouTube video says that "there are a few times" that they will not self right, but even in the video you can see how often he has to help. I wrote to Hexbugs about this, and they told me to change the batteries, and to ensure the track is put together correctly. I noticed this issue on day one out of the box. How much newer do the batteries need to be? They got my money for this set, but they saved me a fortune by turning my son off of their product before I bought the rest of the sets.

I regret buying it

Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® Nano V2 Black Hole:
My son wanted this for his 4th Birthday. He had a smaller track that he loves and works great. Once we finally got it installed properly the bugs were constantly getting stuck in the tubes. My son got so frustrated he cried. Not a fun gift. I had to dismantle it and take a couple of the curved pieces off and make my own design for it to work a little better. Notice I said a little better as the bug stills get stuck just not as much
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Kid Who Plays With It
I love hexbug and think that they are a very fun company. This is a very fun toy to play with. You can move the tubes around to make your own habitat or you can put it together the way that they do on the box. The bugs get stuck sometimes but its mostly tighter spots and if then bugs have little battery left. The bugs get stuck in the "Y Tubes" alot because the flap inside doesn't leave enough room for the bug to fit. Y Tubes are a type of tubes that come in the kit that the bugs can go through. The tubes are pretty hard to snap together and snap apart. I hope this review is helpful to you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bugs get stuck at junctions constantly
from Toronto, ON
Bugs are fun but the V2 climbing bugs ALWAYS GET STUCK in the tubes at the junctions. It's very frustrating. Stick with the V1 non-climbing bugs...they are actually fun!

See all my reviews
love that this is bigger and definitely bigger then the rest only flaw is that the bugs seem to get stuck in the tubes and you got to bang on the tube lightly to get it to go down or up depending on witch way they go. My son likes it and does enjoying playing with it and laughs when the bugs climb and stuff so i would buy it and recommend it

Always gets stuck
About Me Educator
From the first time we played this activity the bugs got stuck in the tubes. Especially the ones that have the flaps. I tried several different configurations and finally just removed those 3 tubes. It still gets stuck in places, but my son (4) seems to be able to correct them by tapping the area they are stuck. Not worth the investment. Frustrating for the parents as well as the child.
Tunnels for Hexbugs
I wasn't sure what I was buying but it looked interesting. It is well made and I'm pretty sure it will give my nephew a lot of playing time. There seems to be several ways it can be set up.

The bugs that came with this get stuck on the right side every time. My boys played for 35 min. and every time we had to bang on the outside tube and then unlock the tube to push the bug up. The game is horrible and not worth the money at all. Don't buy
from Rochester, NY
So sorry I bought this. Bugs constantly get stuck in the tubes and when you try to free them, the tubes come apart. Right now the whole thing is apart and in a bag. Very disappointed great-grandson!

You spend more time getting the bugs unstuck. It is flimsy and so painfully not fun.
