My daughter loves this! It’s pretty adorable.

Got it for a gift and my son loves it. Had to upgrade his phone in order to use the app.

Bought this as a birthday gift for my son-in-law who’s an IT guy. Works well – plusBB-8 responds to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens DVD. So cute to watch it.

Gave this to our adult son for his birthday and he was totally happy to receive it. It was in play within minutes of being out of the box.

This thing is awesome is my dog’s best friend he likes to guard it and when I put it away he watches it.

Awesome BB-8. Loves how it watches the Force Awakens and interacts.

Summing up the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid

Sphero Star Wars BB-8 DroidRegardless of age, if your Star Wars fan can use a smartphone and an app, then this is the gift they have been longing for this year.

You just cannot go wrong with the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid and if you want to go one step further with the Force – check out the Special Edition BB-8 that comes with a JEDI BAND to control your Droid.

The only possible CON is that you might become bored over time rolling the BB-8 Drone around the floor, so the long term entertainment value might wane.

One improvement for the future would be for the Droid to talk to you, even a few phrases would be nice. Otherwise,  Christmas is definitely coming early this year with the BB-8 on the shelves 🙂
