There’s one thing my husband and the boys do together that is their special time. Build things. It can be furniture to building blocks to other things. I love watching them build together. We received the HexBug Robotic Arm and I knew they would enjoy this build together. The hubs has been in and out a lot so this was special time building the Hexbug Robotic Arm together, you are going to be really impressed with this toy.
This guy loves to build so I knew the Hexbug Robotic Arm would be challenging and very interesting. We love watching shows on television that build different things and we always see robotic arms play a part in the building processes. Aramis was very excited to receive the box and couldn’t wait to pull everything out. We were all impressed with the pieces it was going to take to build.
Pretty impressive right?
Unfortunately there were a few steps that took a little longer so they have been taking their time with this build. I’m going to say it’s not for the faint of heart. LOL They are due to finish it this weekend and I’m so excited for them. I imagine I’ll have an “extra hand” around the house. haha
The important thing about these activities is that they are doing something special together. I’ll update the post when they finish up the arm this weekend but for the mean time here’s the image of what it will look like when they are done.
