Hexbug launches new additions to STEM toy range

Published on: 29th September 2021

The new releases include expansions to the Hexbug Mobots, Junkbots, Nano Real Bugs and Circuit Smash Robots ranges.

This month sees Hexbug launch new additions to its Mobots and Micro Robotics Creates ranges, as well as upgrades to the collectible Junkbots range.

Hexbug first launched in 2007 and quickly developed in popularity with kids of all ages. The company expects the new releases will prove just as popular this Christmas.

Mobot Speed Shot is the newest addition to the Mobots range. Mobots are interactive robotic sidekicks which can record and play back children’s voices at different speeds. Children can use the voice effects to make themselves sound like a robot and change the pitch from low to high. With Mobot Speed Shot, each shot on target moves the Mobot towards the finish line and closer to victory.

Wasp is the newest addition to Hexbug’s growing legion of robotic creepy crawlers. Children can race friends and watch as Wasp drifts around corners and towards the finish line. The Wasp is powered by a remote control and comes with adjustable wings and a flexible tail moving from side to side. The Hexbug range also includes Dragon, Spider, Beetle, Ant, Scorpion, Scarab and Fire Ant, available in an assortment of colours.

Junkbots is another growing range and with the Junkbots Trash Bin, children can use trash to build and collect Junkbots. With a modular design, they can follow the instructions or create their own collectible character.

The Junkbots Dumpster contains a pair of special bots hiding inside. Kids can attach and reattach, add light and motion modules, and see how many different bots they can discover. There is also the Junkbots Large Dumpster containing four unique bots, simulated junk and motion and light modules.

The Junkbots Research Lab is a play set with which kids can build a pair of robots, then deconstruct them to make even more bots or rearrange the set however they want, while the new Junkbots Sewer System Playset contains 280 plus pieces and four all-new Junkbots to uncover. Kids can adapt the playset to create what they want or add power modules to give their bots a boost.

Other new releases include Nano Real Bugs 3 Pack and 5 Pack, which contain lookalike insects which scurry over hard surfaces and Circuit Smash Robots – little warriors which can fight in the portable ring.
