Sometimes raising boys can be a little challenging, especially when you're a mom who isn't big on all the little creatures that boys seem to be attracted to. We have been home to a number of lizards over the last few years, which means we have to keep crickets and mealworms for the lizards to eat. I really HATE having these icky things in my house. I've found the boys poking at beetles, grasshoppers and even a scorpion once, albeit from a distance, with a VERY long stick. That one about gave me a heart attack!
A few weeks ago, we got a package from the UPS man FILLED with bugs! Lucky for me, they are of a robotic/electronic nature, so they were very welcome inside our living room. HEXBUGS are swarming the country and I gotta say, for little tiny toys, they are pretty interesting.
Thanks to HEXBUGS and MomSelect, we had the chance to invite some of the boys' friends over to try out the HEXBUG Nanos on their Habitat set. Boys and girls both loved the little creatures and spent 3 hours at our little bug party racing them in the habitat and all over the house.
