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 colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Ant, young Hexbug engineers start by assembling the six red wheels and attaching the motors and the wheels to the ant’s core. Once the base is in place, the brain and sensors are connected and the bright red body pieces are attached to give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Ant! Final steps include wiring the brain to the dual bump sensors and the two motors using snap connectors.

To program the robotic ant, 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 variations from which to choose!

In Super Farmer, each player takes the role of the owner of an animal farm. The main goal is to breed, exchange and gather different animals (rabbits, sheep, pigs, cows, horses and dogs) and the winner is the person who can gather at least one of each kind. But, be careful! There are foxes around trying to snatch your rabbits, and a wolf which can eat almost all of your animals!

The game is based on strategy, and luck of the dice. Will you barter with your opponents to get the animals that you need? Or will you keep them close so that the other players can’t get them? Do you exchange your animals for dogs that will protect your animals from wolves and foxes, or take the risk in order to get more animals instead?

For 2 - 4 players.
