8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Strandbeast, young innovators start by constructing each half of the base and attaching a motor to both sides. Once the base system and the eight legs are in place, it’s time to bring the strandbeast to life by wiring the brain to the LED module, distance sensors, and motors using snap connectors, and then attaching the brain to the body. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright blue leg pieces that illustrate this complex robot’s graceful, smooth-walking stride.

To program the robotic strandbeast, kids 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. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous mode that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Built product measures approximately 12.5” long, 14” wide, and 10” tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).

With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Scarab, young Hexbug engineers start by constructing the base chassis and assembling the six green legs. Once the chassis is in place, the brain and motors are connected to the bottom of the base, and the legs are attached. Next steps include building the outer body shell and then wiring the brain to the sensors and motors using snap connectors.

To program the robotic scarab, kids 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. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 250 snap together pieces.

Build product measures approximately 16” long, 15 wide and 7” tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).

Hexbug Warriors Transformers are the ultimate battling bots in the age old conflict between Autobot and Decepticon. Each Hexbug Warriors Transformers has a hidden pop-up door, revealing whether the character is Autobot or Decepticon. Each Warrior’s Indicator Light is shaped to represent the Transformers character’s Allspark.

The Hexbug Warriors Transformers Battle Stadium is the ultimate battleground for the Hexbug Warriors and comes with two Hexbug Warriors Transformers, six characters of armor, and an interactive air-locked battle platform.

Kids can operate their Hexbug Warriors Transformers in Training Mode, with unlimited health, for scrimmages and testing purposes. Once the Warriors are ready for battle, they can be powered into Match Mode and are set to enter into competition, where they crash, jab and jostle with their opponents until they win or lose by running out of health, at which point they deactivate. In Match Mode, each robot’s Shock Sensor activates its Damage Indicator Light which changes colors from green to red and blinks more rapidly as its health decreases.

Requires 4 AG13 batteries (Included).

Introducing an all new breed of gravity defying Hexbug Nanos! These Nano V2 bugs can now climb up vertically, horizontally, around corners, through loops and tubes, to the tip top of any Nano V2 habitat set. The Hexbug Nano V2 Bridge Battle features an evolved Nano, sporting a new look, with three rubber spikes on its back, as well as a new system of tubular tracks that highlight the Nano V2’s unique multi-level climbing abilities.

The Hexbug Nano V2 is a tiny, micro robotic creature that uses the physics of vibration to scurry around and explore its environment. The quick little critter possesses an uncanny sense of balance, capable of crawling through tubes on its feet or on its back, and can pass another bug in a single tube to avoid a traffic jam! The Nano V2 will even flip to its feet when landing on its back on a flat, open surface.

The Nano V2 Bridge Battle set allows kids to create the ultimate battleground for the Nano V2 bugs. Nano V2 bugs will pirouette up through the black tubes to either side of the elevated arena, scurrying over the orange bridge, through one-way gates, to meet in the center battle platform. Once there, Nano V2 bugs knock their competitor around until only one bug is left standing. Builders have even more control over how to construct the set, and can customize the flow of traffic by filling the attachment points on the HEX cell base with accessories such as fixed pegs and rotating flags that help direct where the explorative micro robot roams.

Includes: 2 Nano V2 bug, 2 curved tubes, 1 bridge battle platform, 6 connectors, 2 HEX cell bases plus removable walls and gates 2 curved tracks 8 fixed pegs, and 4 rotating flags.

From the creators of HEXBUG micro robotic creatures, Tagamoto motorized vehicles read and react to codes you place on the road, with movement and lights.

You've never had a car like this! Your Tagamoto motorized vehicle has a sensor to read Tagamoto Bar Codes then performs the corresponding action all by itself! You are in complete control as you determine how your Tagamoto car drives around!

There are 12 different vehicles to collect, all with working headlights and taillights (sold sepatately).

Tagamoto cars have 3 great ways to play!

  • Off Road: Press and hold "On" and your Tagamoto car will drive on most smooth surfaces!
  • Roads and Codes: Vehicles follow roads and react to codes!
  • Free Roll: The front wheels snap down for battery-free, non-motorized free-wheeling fun anytime!

Tagamoto motorized vehicles read and react to codes with lights and movement, making each driving experience different. Tagamoto gives kids the power to essentially engineer their own play environment, control where their vehicles go, and most importantly, how they interact within that environment – stopping at stop signs or toll booths, drag racing, or pulling into a parking lot at the end of the day.

Vehicle requires 2 AG13/LR44 button cell batteries (INCLUDED)

Each sold separately. Ships in randomly selected colours and styles according to availability.

Tagamoto sets sold separately.
