The Hexbug family has expanded! I was first introduced to them last year and now there are Hexbug Warrior Battling Robots.

I've been sending out Christmas cards for years now. It started with handmade cards for a few family members and friends, but my list has grown over the years and unfortunately I just can't find the time for crafting these days.
