Got this for my husband. Big fan of Star Wars and has had his eye on this for awhile. Also bought force band. He is currently obsessed and it like a little kid again. You can wear band to control bb-8 and also play game on phone/iPad device. He is obsessed with finding all the holocrons with force band and is determined to master controlling BB8 with the force band as well. Controlling BB8 with the iPad or phone is pretty easy but remembering all the movements to control BB8 with the force band takes some practice. Overall he lives it and has no complaints.

We read the reviews and for the most part they lead us to believe this would be a great purchase for our son's birthday. We'd read it was ideal fun for all ages and decided to get it. What we found is small things come in big packages. Our daughter was laughing because she knew our dog would chase it and suggested the warranty. A day before his birthday our friend let the cat out of the bag. She thought we'd already given it to him. So we did. The unveiling moment. Yes it rolled fine on our short carpet...but our daughter was right....our poodle terrier tried to chomp it apart. The actual product was way smaller than expected...I guess we should've checked at the store. However the toy was a gift and our son seems to like it. Would we buy it again? Possibly not...for the size and dollar would possible look at other options, but we were able to buy what was asked for this time. We've only had it about 2 weeks so maybe time and more opportunities without the dog will prove size doesn't matter as is the fact with so many other lessons in life.

What a fun interactive toy! My boys love all starwars movies and this little robot really comes alive especially when watching the force awakens! BB8 is now a part of our family and we all enjoy watching him explore on his own. His reactions are priceless! And his personality really comes alive.

My daughter love this Sphero. They have a basic sphero @ her library in school and she enjoys playing w/it there so in BB8 form it's even better. With the app on her phone it is also a great learning tool.

        Comments about Orbotix Star Wars: The Force Awakens Sphero App-Enabled Droid - BB-8:

        I was looking for that one toy that would would have the "Wow Factor" to really grab our grandson's attention and imagination. Well despite it's smallish size, BB8 really hit the mark, he was over joyed when he opened it, and once the initial charging and set-up was accomplished (wasn't too bad, but instructions could have been clearer) the thing was whizzing all over the house, controlled by his iPad. He loves BB8, and plays with it often. I'd call that a winner.
