HEXBUG Nano Robotic Cat Toy-Video and Giveaway

I came across a cool little toy at Target the other day. I had never seen it before and hadn't heard the brand name either. It's the HEXBUG Nano Robotic Cat Toy.


It was on clearance, so I thought, "What the heck? It's not like the cats got any toys for Christmas." (I'm still trying to cull the current toy collection to make room for the new stuff.)

I brought it home, took it out of the package, turned it on, and let it go on the kitchen floor. It was an instant hit! All 3 of the boys were entranced. They played nicely together and took turns batting at the buzzing bug.




Even after Lowenstein picked it up and carried off his kill the fun continued.

I decided to check into the brand and found that these little critters didn't start as cat toys. However, we cat owners are a smart bunch. I found many instances of people who bought the toy (which didn't have the attached feather) and let their kitties have at it. You can search for cats and HEXBUGS on YouTube and see lots of videos of the encounters. They put them in boxes and bathtubs, or released several at a time and the cats loved them! 

I couldn't keep this great find to myself! I went back to Target and bought the last two they had. Now one of them could be yours! I'm giving away a HEXBUG Nano Robotic Cat Toy to two readers. The giveaway isn't sponsored by HEXBUG, nor do they have anything to do with this post. I just loved the toy so much that I wanted to share it. You can always buy your own-they sell for $4.99 on the HEXBUG website. That was the same regular price at Target.


If you already know about this great little toy, let me know what you think.

  6. Hmmm, I think it is super cute but I would be afraid that Cody would try to eat that furry bug and chew the string ...yeah, I know, supervise them, but if he grabs it and runs under the bed with it, I would be screwed. Good luck to all who enter!
