Hot Holiday Picks - HEXBUG Warriors Battle Arena Review

I have been very busy at home lately as many of you know.  First occupied by pregnancy, now with my newborn and toddler, my days have no end and have been very much taken over.  The holiday season is upon us, and I am finally getting decorations up at home and getting into our Holiday Hot Picks to share with you all this year. 

First up, Hexbug Warriors!  You are probably familiar with Hexbugs, but have you heard of Hexbug Warriors yet?  My son already loved the bugs, the Nano Hexbug, but his new favorite are the warriors.  We got to try out the Hexbug Warriors Battle Arena recently, and all the kids in the family can't get enough.  A huge hit for all ages around here, all the parents want to check them out, and kids can't get stop having little battles as they customize each little robot to their liking.

Small enough that my son just grabs and takes it everywhere to have mini battles with his cousins, and a perfect toy that keeps me happy as it doesn't take up much space at home.  The arena fits right in my purse, a great toy on the go as well.  The Battle Arena comes with two warriors, two expandable arena pieces that are compatible with battle stadiums, and three standoffs that hold the arena in place.  The warriors come with little pieces- mechanical weapons and armor that are interchangeable so every child can customize to their liking.  Kids seem to love friendly competition and being able to make things their own, the Hexbug Warriors feeds both those cravings! 
The warriors have two modes, one training mode where they never stop unless you stop them, and the match mode.  During match mode each warrior has a shock sensor that shows colors from green to yellow to red and blinks more rapidly as its health decreases, and whichever little robot turns off first loses.  My son and his cousin played with it nonstop the day they first tried it out, only reason they momentarily stopped was because the  batteries needed replacing surprisingly quickly.  You can collect more warriors, as well as expand your arena into a stadium, as I said everyone loves it here in our home, specially my son- which is why we recommend the HEXBUG Warriors Battle Arena as one of our Holiday Hot Picks this year!  My son will be getting another little warrior or two in his stocking this year for being such a great big brother..shhhhh!!  Is there someone in your life that might love this?  :)
