SPHERO BB-8

 

Bought as a present for my son (20) who thought it was great. Travels well over carpet and it really is very cute (my opinion).

You really need an iPhone for the app to function properly.

I love how I can use my phone or force band. I love it when it goes on patrol. It gets excited when the movie is playing too.

It was hard to get up and running. This is not the bb8 fault or products though. It was the Bluetooth on my phone that I had to upgrade. This was simple to do when I figured out how to. If you have problems (phone doesn't work with bb8) then try to...

The design on the BB-8 is very good.

I think for the price you pay it's ridiculous, it's been used about twice since Christmas, would never buy this product again.

Very fun hologram picture and emotion noises, the programming app has a lot of features and it was cool computer programming. It charges quickly and lasts for a long time.

It did not start to drive when it was showing it was driving. Did not come with instructions.

Bought this for my 8yr granddaughter for christmas & she loves it - no problems with overall usage as she has a tablet

None that I'm aware of except it was a little smaller than expected.

It moves very quickly and is a realistic version of the real thing!

It is FAR TOO SMALL for the price, had I have realised just how tiny it is, I wouldn't have purchased it. It would have been far more entertaining if it were larger and could make the noises that it made in the film!

Good fun, for a while

Once the novelty has worn off, which took about a morning, this will be unused forever.

Has kept the person it was bought for entertained for ages. Love the interaction with the film

Doesn't always right itself so head unit on top, needs a little human help - but it's a very minor negative far outweighed by the fun!
