Every once in a while a toy comes along that is destined to be an instant hit. In my opinion the new Hexbug Warriors are that next big thing. As part of my new PTPA ambassadorship I was sent the HEXBUG Warriors Battle Stadium as well as a couple of HEXBUG Battle Robots Warriors to try out and I have to say the kids absolutely love them. Watch this video to see how much!
The HEXBUG Warriors Battle Stadium includes the arena as well as two battle robots and is fully expandable so you can add to your Battle Stadium and make one huge arena. Set up is a breeze and within minutes you and your kids can get down to the important task of having fun. Game play changes each time so any robots could win with each new start. Each HEXBUG Warriors Battling Robot comes with armour that you can remove or add onto the unit to change how the robot fights. Switch out pieces to see which ones are more successful at winning the fight. Each robot comes with a unique set of armour, collect all the robots than mix and match the pieces. Warrior robots have two settings, training and match mode, and includes sensors to tell you when your robot’s health is decreasing by going from green to yellow to red.
My kids were too focused on just battling it out with each other to pay much attention to the lights and in our house the battle was won by the last robot standing in the arena. It was a blast watching the kids cheer on their robots and groan when theirs fell off the stadium stage. The kids enjoyed the Hexbugs Warriors so much in fact that within days the batteries were drained from the constant use. I count that a win since I managed to get so much done while the kids were occupied. My son is already planning which one he wants to get next as he is determined to have a whole nest of HEXBUG Warriors Battling Robots to battle against his sisters bugs.
Individual Hexbug Warriors retail for around $8 and the Stadium for about $30 making them a reasonably priced gift giving item and perfect for stocking stuffers come Christmas. Will you be battling it out?
