Hexbug launches Hexmods in the UK

Published on: 15th July 2022

The fully customisable Hexmods RC tuner cars allow children to create their own dream machines with many modification combinations.

STEM toy brand Hexbug says it has reinvented the RC tuner car with the launch of the fully customisable Hexmods range in the UK. Designed to be authentic and engaging, children can experiment with different modifications to create a car of their own design.

The new collection features two sets: Pro Series Elite and Pro Series Elite Raceway.

With the Pro Series Elite set, children can enhance their creativity and engineering skills as they design their dream car. ‘Falcon’ comes with a selection of body styles, hoods, side skirts, bumpers, engine covers, spoilers and alternate rims for children to choose from. The Hexmods tuner car is also equipped with LED powered underflow for lighting up any circuit or track, and a choice of decals add the finishing touch.

The car’s performance can be enhanced with upgrades such as swappable suspensions, tyres with different grip levels and gear configurations, so kids can ramp up the car’s speed to 13mph. Hexmods’ Pro Series Kits come with a hobby-grade 2.4 GHz remote which can be personalised for top level steering and play.

Designed to spark imaginations, the Pro Series Elite Raceway has thousands of modification combinations, creating endless possibilities as children design their dream car. Containing all the features of the Pro Series Elite Set, this set includes more body styles, hoods, side skirts, bumpers, roof options, engine covers, spoilers and alternate rims.

The Pro Series Elite Raceway also includes more performance upgrades, such as all-wheel drive and a selection of swappable suspensions, steering, linkages, tyres of varying grip strength, and different gear configurations and motors to control the car’s speed. A choice of motor can ramp up the car’s speed to 18mph.

Alison Ferguson, marketing manager at Hexbug, said: “The launch of the Hexmods range has been a long time coming here in the UK, and it was our most popular toy by far at London Toy Fair earlier in the year. The launch will be supported by a range of PR, social media and influencer relations. The range is designed to be authentic and engaging, and children will love experimenting with the modifications to create their own dream machine.”

Hexmods are suitable for children aged eight and over. For more information, visit www.hexbug.com
