Originally designed for the classroom, VEX Robotics provides educators with the tools they need to teach the principles of STEM while maintaining an engaging and hands-on experience for their students. With Hexbug and VEX Robotics combined, kids get to bring this exciting educational experience right to their own home!
Build a massive, seventeen-inch, autonomous robot with over 150 snap-together building pieces!
Large claw-like wheels roll like an other-worldly tank over all kinds of terrain.
Snap all the pieces together easily - There are no tools required! - Fit the gears together, connect the motors, and hook up the brain.
All the while, kids are learning all about mechanical engineering, circuitry, and robot brain technology!
Once the ant is finished, grab the controller and give it a test run - It easily moves in all directions! - Forward, backward, left, right, and all around!
Already it's nothing but amazing fun, but this is only the beginning.
Switch the Ant to autonomous mode and watch as it comes to life, moving, crawling, and exploring all on it's own, just like a real living creature!
A high-tech brain gets the wheels rolling while antennae mounted on the front and back feel out the surroundings, searching for obstacles.
Once the antennae are bumped, vibrations are sent to the brain and the motors quickly change directions!
Wondering how it all really works? Start experimenting with the brain by flipping the six control switches for all kinds of different response modes.
There are sixty-four possible program options, each one causing the Ant to move in a totally different way!
Get your little engineering building and learning all about technology, science, robotics, physics, and EVERYTHING with the Hexbug VEX Robotics Ant Kit.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
