HEXBUG Nano Bug Vertical Climber Playset with 2 Nano Bugs
SAYS FOR OVER 3 BUT MY OLDER CHILDREN COULDNT PUT TOGETHER DUE TO NO INSTRUCTIONS WORTHY OF READING. PICTURES WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE PLAIN BROWN BOX IT CAME IN ISNT PRESENTABLE FOR GIFT GIVING. THE BUGS WERE CUTE AND WORKED TO RUN UNDER OVEN WHICH WAS A PAIN TO RETRIEVE. NEVER ORDER AGAIN AND RETURNING.
plain brown box package--can't give as gift
The toy itself is okay but the package was a plain brown box with no identifiers. I planned to wrap it and give it as a gift---definitely not possible as presented. I was disappointed. Also the bugs were smaller than expected.
My Boy Loves it :)
My son loves this toy, but I am only giving it 3 starts because it comes with little to no instructions to show you how to put it all together. I suppose that you could put it together several different ways and use your imagination...But directions for how it looks when you order it should be included step by step. I had to look at the website and then it was much easier to figure out how to put it together properly. Again my son loves this toy and is a big fan of the hexbug nano bugs.
We have had many Hexbug items that our children thoroughly enjoyed. This playset,however,is definitely not one of them. There are too many small pieces,no instructions and the bugs constantly get stuck. Whoever designed this must not have children or isn't around them very much. If you bought this as a Christmas gift,please open early and decide if it is suitable for you. Otherwise,I am afraid there will be disappointed children on Christmas morning. Also, there is always the annoying aspect of having to pay return postage for an inferior item.
I bought this early for Christmas for my 14 year old who loves bugs, and also to entertain the cat! LOL
I had read the reviews and almost didn't purchase this due to all the negative remarks, BUT then I decided I would like to form MY OWN OPINION !!
I'M GLAD I BOUGHT THIS!!
I will admit that the instructions...if you can call them that are awful, and that a picture would have been nice. I went to QVC and found the pic and zoomed in on it, and PUT IT TOGETHER IN UNDER 2 MINUTES!
I'm going to place it fully assembled into another box for wrapping that way - instantaneous playing at Christmas!
AND my bugs work just fine. Apparently there must have been a few bad batches.
Do Not Purchase
This product should come with a disclaimer that reads objects appear smaller than pictured. Very difficult to put together. Very tiny directions, difficult to read and understand. Do not waste your money. I had to return this and had to shell out the shipping and handling fees to return. Terrible value.
TOO many pieces to put together
Many many small pieces required to put together. This nannie didn't even want to try, I also was afraid the little nano bugs were too small to keep up with and could maybe be a danger to my 4 year old. Sorry, but I returned it!
Fun toy but needs improvement
I purchased this for our three year old grandson. My husband was frustrated to find no instructions on how to assemble it. We needed to log on to QVC to watch the video to figure out how to put it together. Also one of the hexbug needed a new battery when we first started to use it. The bugs also get stuck in the tube and you need to tap it to get them going again. I think QVC should send everyone who purchased this toy new batteries since it's been a common complaint. Overall my grandson likes his new toy. I would've given it a higher rating if it wasn't for the batteries and the lack of instructions.
Son loves this
I have to admit that because there are no directions, my 8 year old had difficulties putting it together, but after looking at the picture we figured it out together. He absolutely loves this set and wants to take it to show his other friends. They do get struck in the tunnel going up to the top sometimes, but a little tapping and they make it up. We have other sets of Hex bugs that had great instructions and he put it together no problem, I think if you would fix that the kids wouldn't be so frustrated and could do it themselves and would make a great gift.
Hard to put together
The directions is so bad , I just Put all the pieces back in the box and called customer service and told them about it .they are paying for my return postage .Don't save it for Christmas the little ones will be disappointed ! Just send it back like I did.Your thank me for this advice !
No pictures or directions
I gave the set to my two grandsons today. When we opened it there was no pictures or directions of how to put it together. The boys have other sets of Nano Bugs and are great at putting those sets together and changing them up to make new ones. This set needs some examples as to how to put it together. Then children can change it up. If we can't get it together soon it will be going back. If it worked it would be great for children but right now I have two very sad boys and several adults who have tried for hours to get it together. Battery didn't work in one of them when we opened it.
