Product Description

In 100BC, Greek and Roman engineers changed the face of battle with the invention of the most powerful long-range weapon the world had ever seen. Now kids everywhere can experience the thrill of launching objects with the VEX® Robotics Catapult by Hexbug®! This machine teaches kids important lessons about variable shot power and how machines store kinetic energy.

Introducing Innovation First's Hexbug Creatures! These Micro Robotic pets behave like real bugs that react to touch, sound, and light. Collect all of the Hexbug creatures including the: original Hexbug, Inchworm, Crab, Ant, and Nano! The original Hexbug reacts to touch and sound, the crab reacts to light and sound and the Ant reacts to touch. You have the power to control the inchworm...the first full-range control robotic creature. The nano behaves like a real bug and can even flip itself over! Innovation First began producing electronics for unmanned mobile ground robots, and is now the industry leader. Innovation First also developed the VEX Robotics Design System, the leading classroom robotics platform, which won the prestigious Best of Innovation Award at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show.

I bought this as a gift for my nephew. He loved it! The whole series of VEX is great, I had picked out a different model for my other nephew and he has enjoyed it as well. They are both big into the Leto sets but legos are so expensive and they already have all the cheaper sets so I went this direction instead. Great Purchase and they will each be getting another set for Christmas!

CHALLENGING

SOMEWHAT CHALLENGING FOR YOUNGER KIDS, BUT DOABLE. FRUSTRATING THAT THE RUBBERBAND BROKE ON THE FIRST TRIAL AFTER SPENDING 2 HOURS ASSEMBLING IT.

    Comments about Innovation First Inc Hexbug® VEX® Robotics Catapult™:

    My 8yo son enjoyed building this catapult. The instructions were clear and. We used the toy to learn about levers and other STEM topics. That being said, it is also a lot of fun to play with. The ball does indeed travel around 10 feet. After 3 days of repeated use, the rubber and is still holding strong.

        My Jacob loves his Hexbug Catapult. He was able to put it together himself and it works really well. Its not easy to find a toy that keeps him occupied but he has played with it every day since Christmas. Thank you..

          Comments about Innovation First Inc Hexbug® VEX® Robotics Catapult™:

          My 11 yr old nephew was able to put it together with a little help from me (mainly helping organizing the pieces and encouraging him to refer back to the pictures). He loved it and then had a lot of fun experimenting with the catapult capabilities. He said he was excited about later rebuilding it as a car.

                  It was easy to do for my 14 year old, but he is pretty quick with building things anyway. They enjoyed the power the gun and catapult had! Would buy more Vex products.
