FREE Larva with 2 HexBug purchases
Ages 8 and up

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).

To program the robots, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine which behaviors make most sense for each robot. There are a total of 64 possible programming variations 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!

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).
