Product Description

The build-it-yourself line of HEXBUG VEX Robotics fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing kids to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. The Ant kit has over 150 snap together pieces, 6 wheels, dual bump sensors and interlocking gears. Once built, it will roll around and respond with every hit of the bump sensor. The Ant's large wheels allow it to climb over obstacles in its path. There are two drive modes, manual driver controlled via remote control or autonomous. Autonomous drive mode is customizable with 64 different programming variations. To program, simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated.

It was fun putting it together but then it automatically was "on" only way to shut it off was to remove the batteries. For the second play we put the batteries back in and it never turned on. I have used VEX in the classroom for years and their higher line is a lot more expensive but at least it doesn't break. This was very disappointing to only get one play out of it. It is like the power button is on an always off location now.

We have been trying to buy just the micocontroller (brain) but haven't had luck since it so cheap for a robotics toy.

          Th robot was hard to assemble, pieces did not fit very well, and fell apart even with slightest pressure on them. However, the worse part was the robot never moved even after I tried two sets of new batteries. I had to return this. Not happy at all.

                Great working with grandson to put together, but much too fragile for anything more than putting on shelf. Perhaps if we had glued every piece it would have stayed together. I put it back together 4 times and then said this is it. Age limit should be increased to 10 or 12.
