Recently we were provided the VEX Explorers Discovery Command By HEXBUG for review as part of our holiday gift guide coverage of awesome STEM toys. This toy is a lot of fun and it’s also really easy to put together. It’s perfect for imaginative play in that you can take your team of astronauts into uncharted territories with the VEX Explorers Discovery Command by HEXBUG. There are three astronaut figurines with this snap together set and it’s an adventure waiting to unfold. All you have to do is add imagination, and kids have plenty of that (you just need to tap into it!)
For kids who are interested in STEM, this is a great toy to role play engaging in space science and exploration. Stumped for what to talk about with your budding science enthusiast? It can also be a way to connect and can serve as a conversation starter for chats about careers in the science field. This toy is great for independent play or to entertain kids on a play date. Kids can play pretend science fiction scenarios and imagine possible applications of drone technology.
What’s inside the box? This entertaining play set includes a toy drone, a command base, a mech loader and 3 astronauts. It’s a STEM based construction kit made up of 225+ snap together pieces. That might sound like a lot of pieces to put together, but it’s actually really manageable to assemble. It’s perfect for boys and girls ages 6 years and up and the VEX Explorers Discovery Command By HEXBUG is a great choice for Christmas for the STEM loving kid who is on your shopping list. You don’t have to check this one twice!
