National Insect Week with HEXBUG

This week was National Insect Week and when we were asked if we'd like to help celebrate it by racing our very own HexBug ants I knew we couldn't say no.


With the assistance of my Other Half, Meg and Eli set to work creating their track.  Meg designed the start and finishing posts and they worked together using coloured bricks to lay out the track.



With the spectators ready and the HexBug ants raring to go, it was time for the race.


Who will win?  Pink or Green?



Not sure the green one actually wanted to join in with that race!

Excitingly, we are also able to offer the chance to win your very own HexBug Nano V2 Habitat/Hurricane set. We had lots of fun playing with our HexBugs and now you can too! Just complete the rafflecopter below to be in with a chance of winning.

UK entrants only please.  The giveaway will end on Friday 25 July.
