What Are Hex Bugs?

HEXBUG is a line of micro robotic toy bugs, also commonly referred to as "Hex Bug" or "HexBug." They are created and distributed by the toy company Innovation First.

HEXBUG creatures are simple robots that can move independently and react to certain stimuli, such as loud noises or contact with one of their legs. The first HEXBUGs were released in 2007 in a form that somewhat resembled a cockroach. The line has since expanded to different creature types like inchworms, crabs, spiders, ants, scarabs and Aquabots, a line of miniature fish that can sense when they are immersed in liquid.
