Star Wars design is well worth the money.
The Sphero is not a new device, there have been earlier generations for he Sphero ball. Those who have reviewed the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 droid edition have mentioned it is well worth the price for the Star Wars design, head, and app sounds.
Although the price is somewhat expensive, Star Wars fanatics would happily pay even more for a simple action figure.
Your cat will love you forever!
My cat loves the BB-8 toy! He stalks it, sniffs it, jumps on it. We play a game together, if the Sphero BB8 droids head come off, I could it as a +1 for the cat J.
Learned how to control the Droid bb-8 in less than 10 minutes.
This toy is great! Even an adult can learn to use this bb8 toy in minutes, although I would recommend using it on a flat surface or tight knit carpet. Patrol mode on the Droid BB-8 is really cool!
Star Wars Fans WILL and DO L.O.V.E. this product.
This bb8 toy has everything a Star Wars Droid lover could want. It moves just like a little Droid, head bobbles around, lights blink on and off, can roam out and about on its own, show holographic videos on your phone, and respond to voice activated commands.
Less known “Tickle App”
Yes, the bb8 is programmed by the manufacturer, although… with a little work you can program your droid yourself! Check out the tickle app and learn something new with your kids, program the Sphero Droid BB-8 to do the Macarena, or dance to your favorite song.
Having a lot of fin with Patrol Mode!
You may read reviews where others are disappointed… if you’re expecting an app-enabled droid who can clean your room, do the dishes, and go to school for you then you will be disappointed. If you’re looking for a fin toy, that can learn about its surroundings after bumping into things, makes funny noises, and is just a blast to play with. You can’t go wrong purchasing this bb8 toy, you will not be disappointed.
Voice control is Awesome!
In order to activate the voice command, you need to initialize with the command “OK, BB8”… after speaking this phrase you can tell him to:
“Go to sleep.”
“How do you feel?”
“It’s a trap!”
“What do you think?”
If you’re considering purchasing one, JUST DO IT.
If you are a Star Wars fan, it’s a no brainer.
If you’re a technology fan, it’s a no brainer.
If you’re between 6-14 years old, it’s a no brainer.
Works just as advertised, great value for the fun you can have with it… I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
This is the Droid Your Looking For!
Packaging is awesome! Just take him out, charge him up, download app and turn on Bluetooth, and your up and running with the Droid bb-8. Don’t forget to take the tutorial when you’re getting started!
The Sphero BB-8 toy is way smaller than a Pineapple, and just about the size of an apple.
I wasn’t expecting the controls to be so easy.
This little droid is so easy to control, at first I didn’t know what I was doing and crashed him into many walls. All of a sudden I got the hang of it and I was able to make precision turns with the controls. He’s reaaaalllyyy easy to drive!!!!!
One of the best remote control toys ever made!
Designed is awesome, the Bluetooth app-enabled toy is so easy a 5 year old can figure it out. Endless fun, lots of features to learn and try.
The 3rd party Apps really make this product shine
My 6 year old loves the app allowing him to change the bb-8 colors, voice commands, and reactions.
The Sphero BB-8 Droid is soooo cute. The battery life is strong, he’s durable, contols are easy to use, and compatible with third party apps.
