What It Is

The Helix 180 is designed to work with the Hexbug Nano V2s that can climb vertically. One Hexbug Nano V2 is included. This 40-piece set can be configured any way you like. We built it as shown on the package. Set it up and set your Hexbug Nano going. The Hexbug Nano V2 will move around in a seemingly lifelike, random, and buggy manner, climbing through the tubes and exploring the world. Add other Hexbugs and pieces, sold separately, to create an entire Hexbug Nano V2 environment.

Is It Fun?

We found this as fascinating as all the Hexbugs products, and there's lots of creative and entertaining play for kids who are new or established fans of these amazing robots.

Who It’s For

The Hexbug Nano V2 Helix 180 is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The Hexbug Nano V2 includes one button cell battery.

When building this, you'll want to ensure that the pieces line up correctly and snap together solidly for best results.

When the Hexbugs tip over, they are supposed to right themselves. And they do, but if you're impatient like us, there's no harm in giving them a little poke or assistance in getting them upright.
