We are really big fans of HEXBUG products in our house. So it’s not surprise we really like the VEX Snap shot from HEXBUG. Jordan and Jayden get a real kick out of all the bedbug products. Not only do kids often spend most of their time inside now on electronics, or stuck in front of a television I like to make sure my boys get out and about as much as possible!
With products from HEXBUG they get out a lot more and have fun together. Jordan is 13 and Jayden is 7 so they often don’t hang out together, but having something like this gets them out in the backyard and having some brother bonding time!

If you are looking for a great gift to pick up for the holidays, this would be a great option for the preteen, and teens in your life. Jordan liked how the pieces snapped together, and it wasn’t all too difficult for them to figure out. I really liked how simple gear ratios and spring energy send projectiles flying over ten feet for long-range attacks. The boys thought this was fabulous and had a lot of fun with it, we will now be purchasing another for Jayden at Christmas time!
Be warned though there are TONS of pieces, and if your kids are like mine and want to take it apart so they can keep building it over and over again there are a lot of pieces so don’t lose any!
Do you think anyone in your life would enjoy the Vex Snap Shot?
