The HEXBUG Nano micro robotic creature behaves like a real bug, skittering across the floor, flipping over on its back and then righting itself. It can even find its way out of mazes and other obstacles. Created in an extensive development process, the Nano features a distinctive closed nose shape, a low center of gravity and an unusual internal and external chassis design.

Features


How it works


A counterweight inside the Nano forces the creature up and down, causing the legs to bend and the Nano to move forward. The upward force causes the creature to lift its legs off the ground and unbend, propelling the Nano forward.


Swarm


When Nano creatures come together they swarm like real insects. They might seem chaotic at first, but some observers see intelligence, cooperation and competition amongst the Nanos.


Look inside


The Nano's distinctive design features a closed nose shape and a transparent panel that displays the specimen’s inner workings.


Enhanced play


Register and track your HEXBUG Nano online, play games and learn about real science.


Habitats and more


Whether you have 2 or 200 specimens, the HEXBUG Nano Habitat Set and other accessories (sold separately) allow you to create custom obstacles and dwellings for your Nano creatures.


Collect them all!


Explore the Orbit, Gravity, Motion, Calculus and Refraction series for other unique Nanos in an exotic array of colors, markings and distinctive body shapes.

The bug is a nice little toy. It has a life of it's own and is fun to watch. My son followed it around for an hour and the cat spent an hour with it afterward. It only works on hard surfaces and mostly just runs in circles but it's fun to watch it work its way under and around a table.

My son was so excited to get his hexbug nano. The toy fell apart within a few minutes of him playing with it. The screw on the underside of the bug would not stay screwed exposing the batteries, which made the toy unsafe in my opinion. When I wrote the company explaining my issue with the product and telling them that I felt it was a serious problem and could be a choking hazard, they were not very interested. Instead of offering to replace the defective product, they just told me they would make note of my complaint. I would think twice before waisting money on this product.

      Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® Nano - Green:

      The nanobugs were a group Christmas gift for my four children. They range in age from 2 to 9 years old. I also bought a hexbug habitat to use with the bugs, and all the children really enjoyed checking out the bugs and letting them run around the habitat pathways. They only thing that is a problem is that since the bugs are so small, they are easy to lose, and some children don't remember where they put them. However, we have managed to find them all after a while.

      Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® Nano - Green:

      The Hex Bug product was excellent, but the reason I ordered online was because I needed three (3) Hexbugs in different colors for identical triplet boys in order for them to tell them apart. I could find their favorite colors of blue and black, but could not find the green bug so I ordered online and specifically ordered the green bug which was listed online and on my confirmation order. I already purchased the blue and black one and finally received my order three days before Christmas....but to my disappointment it was a black one which I could have purchased anywhere [...]..so it was too late to send back so I painted it green and put clear nail polish over it and wrapped it. In other words you do not always get what you order. Needless to say, I was very disappointed and will never order a specific color online again. It sure didn't do my any good. How can you not tell black from green?

            This thing worked for a while, then it broke down. We replaced the batteries, and it still didn't work! We have other colored Hexbug nanos and we don't have a problem with them! Advice: buy other colors of Hexbug nanos.

              Purchased this for the kids stockings. The kids were entertained. The ages of children are 8,6,3. The 3 year old seemed to enjoy it the most, following it around. Not very expensive and kind of novel so was a cute little extra at Christmas but don't know if you need more than one.
