Hexbug Gladiators Battling Robots Arena Review (Hexbug)

Hexbug Gladiators Battling Robots Arena
What It Is

Send your Hexbugs into head-to-head battles with the Hexbug Gladiators Battling Robots Arena. This comes with a neon green platform arena and two Gladiator Hexbugs with customizable armor. You get Medoom, a gray and green Hexbug, and Spartera, a gray, orange, and blue Hexbug. 

Some of the 13 battle accessories just look cool, while others have moving pieces. But all of them easily snap onto the Hexbugs, which makes swapping out the accessories each round really easy, too.

When you're ready to battle, just turn on the Hexbugs and let them loose on the arena. The last bug left standing is the winner.

Is It Fun?

Watching the robotic Hexbugs vibrate and move around with their realistic bug-like movements is really cool whether on or off the arena platform, but the whole Gladiators theme does add a bit more fun. We do wish the sides of the arena were a bit higher because sometimes the bugs didn't even "fight". They just went right past each other and off the arena. But perhaps that's how real bugs battle? We still think kids will enjoy trying to create winning combinations of battle armor and watching their bugs battle.

Who It’s For

The Gladiators Battling Robots Arena is for ages 3 to 8, but we think that older kids will have the most fun mixing and matching the battle accessories and sending the Hexbugs into battle.
