Halloween HexBug Party....Boo!


For the past 6 months or so my house house been infested....with Hexbugs!! A&W each own a couple of HEXBUGS and they are so much fun.  These little robotic bugs are so realistic that they have definitely creeped me out on a number of occasions!  They scurry and scatter through the house just like real creepy crawlies and the kids just love them.  When I was selected to host a HEXBUG Nano Halloween party and this arrived the kids just about collapsed in excitement....

This was so incredibly cool and raised my mommy cool factor to never seen before heights!  Included in the package were three sets of the habitats (2 glow in the dark habitats and 1 elevation habitat set) which included a bunch of track to make some very exciting structures as well as rare HEXBUGS inside.  There were also a variety of 15 Galileo Glow in the Dark HEXBUGS and 12 glow in the dark Halloween Zombie HEXBUGS (these are so fun...the come in a little coffin and have a skeleton on their backs!). The kids just went wild. 

Over the weekend we made up goodie bags for the kids at our annual family pumpkin party.  The kids and I had so much fun making the goodie bags up with candy, and 2 HEXBUGS...

The kids and I also made extra special creepy, crawly cookies in honor of the HEXBUGS (stay tuned for my recipe later this week)...

Before the HEXBUGS descended on the guests we all got buys decorating our pumpkins (a big tradition) and filing up on some frightfully good food....

When I presented the kids with the goodie bags they were just SO excited.  These buzzing critters were a huge hit and the kids all had a great time chasing them around the yard, having them race and watching them maneuver around pine needle piles....

Some of the kids at the party had never seen or owned a HEXBUG before the party and I would definitely say they are now big fans like we are in our house.  I really like HEXBUGS because they encourage creative play.  We love the tracks and habitats but the kids and I also really like to see how they get themselves out of different homemade mazes (shoe boxes and Little R's doll house are current favorites and later today we are going to see what happens when we blow them up into a balloon!).  I also really like how HEXBUGS appeal to such a broad range of ages.  Little R loves them at just 2 and the older kids (over 10) loved them just as much.  Even the grownups had fun playing with them!

Thanks so much to HEXBUGS and MomSelect for providing the goods to host this party.  All views are 100% my own!
