Review & Giveaway: Nano HEXBUGs....one of the coolest toys! - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for visiting!
We had the opportunity to host a Nano HEXBUG party recently and the kids and adults had a wonderful time!  We started with the Nano HEXBUG Bridge Battle Habitat Set for the HEXBUGs to play in and the kids were mesmerized (adults too)! 
Eventually, with a little creative thinking and some help from the kids, we expanded our HEXBUG habitat with the extra pieces we were sent to fill the entire coffee table. 
From the moment we set up our Nano HEXBUGs (a little over two weeks ago), our kids have played with them non-stop and I have to admit that these are pretty fun toys for grown-ups too!  The environments are easy to build and hold up well to the demands of two small boys (toys are designed for ages 3 and up, but easily ideal for teens too)!  In fact, if you have a large range of ages in your home, this would be a perfect combined gift!  The sets are easy to clean too if you have a young child that loves to color everything!  The HEXBUGs come in cool test tubes with online codes to expand your play online and learn about real science.  There are a variety of designs, and limited edition designs (mutations as termed by HEXBUGs) as well.  We also love that these are small toys, so you can fit a lot of pieces and HEXBUGs in a small storage container!

You can buy Nano HEXBUGs and their habitats online, but I've also recently seen them at stores like Target and Toys 'R Us!  You should really pick these up now because I think these will be on kids wish lists this year for the holidays!

We had a few extra Nano HEXBUGs left from our party that I'd like to share with my readers, so hopefully you'll like them as much as we did!  You don't need the habitat to play - you'll just need to be creative with your containment :)

Giveaway Details
The winner will receive a set of three NanoHEXBUGs as pictured below ($25 value).  This giveaway will end on October 8th at 10:00PM Central.  I'll email the winner who will have 48 hours to respond (winners notified within 5 days of ending).

I learned that the HEXBUG Crab will continue to use its battery in dark places, as it is continuously sensing light conditions. To conserve battery, be sure to turn off your HEXBUG when you are finished using it.

Thank you,

I like the Nano Raceway Habitat Set. It reminds me of a Hot Wheels Race Track.

Totally rad. I follow you through GFC... Also wanted to thank you a bunch for linking up to my very first Friend Finding Fridays. Thanks again.

Also I wanted to invite you to join my kick off to Memory Making Mondays. It is just a fun new meme I have created to remind others to take picture to create memories. I hope you will join in.

I like Echo because it looks like a ladybug. I'll admit that Delta looks a little too much like a roach for me to enjoy it.
