It’s robot-fighting time! Directly from the TV series BattleBots, comes VEX Robotics Minotaur by HEXBUG. Build your own version of this fan favorite bot, with easy snap-together pieces!
Includes VEX Robotics Minotaur
345+ snap together pieces
Encourages STEM based problem solving skills
Ages 9 years and up
Here is what Minotaur looks like…
There are over 345 pieces of the Minotaur to put together. Some of these pieces are small so this product definitely presents a choking hazard for younger kids. Having said that, the Minotaur’s targeted audience is for kids ages 8 to 16. Kids in the upper range of the recommended age bracket will probably be able to follow the instructions and put the Minotaur together. Kids in the lower recommended age ranking will probably need an older sibling or parent to help them build the Minotaur.
The nice thing is that the over 345 pieces that you need to put together to build the Minotaur snap together. Just make sure you have the right pieces before committing to snapping them together. It is always a pain when you realize it is the wrong piece and you need to get them apart.
Once together the user pushes to activate Minotaur.

The great thing about the HEXBUG Battlebots is that it gets kids following instructions and building. Building sets like these also are good as family projects so siblings can enjoy working together to build or a parent and child can have building time together.
Once together, the Minotaur can take on anything your imagination allows. There is no need to have another Battlebots but you can get additional Battlebots separately if you want your Battlebot to take on another Battlebot.
The Minotaur is a great size once put together.
It is a realistic representation of the real Minotaur from the Battlebots TV series.
If you have a Battlebots fan, they will probably really love the HEXBUG Battlebots. To find out more about them including all the Battlebots in the HEXBUG series, make sure to check them out here…
