Even though the kids just want to play outside all day long, in the bright summer sunshine, sometimes they are going to be stuck in the house with you and that is when you need to have a special toy to call on. Something that will keep their little minds active, while they have a blast. Nothing with a screen attached to it either, oh no. You need a toy that is not only fun, but constructive. Recently, my kiddos had the chance to try out such a toy and let me tell you, I am hard pressed to get them away from it now. 🙂
Check out the new HEXBUG nano Nitro Slingshot! This multi-tiered playset lets your child decide how they want their indoor playground to look, with customizable track pieces that are straight, curved and spiral. The Slingshot your child creates can have multiple levels with twists and turns and even tunnels for their little nano Nitro to climb through. The set comes with two nano Nitros so they can race! And these babies are fast! In fact, they are the fastest nano ever created! My son was so excited when he heard that. 🙂
This set is recommended for ages 3 and up, but a young child might need a bit of help with the pieces. My William worked with his big sister to get the Slingshot set up and they had lots of fun. It was nice to see them working in harmony together on a project. Don’t let the cute little nano Nitro fool you either. This super-, high-octane micro robotic bug can skitter around like there is no tomorrow! Kids like them, but I prefer to watch from a distance. 🙂
The HEXBUG nano Nitro Slingshot is available at Toys R Us and Mastermind Toys and retails for $69.99. They have a great range of toys that will challenge your kiddo this summer and help them beat the boredom blues.
What nano Nitro bug is your favourite colour? I like (from a distance) the green one. 🙂
