Sphero BB-8 Droid – What is it?
Trying to find an impartial review for this new and, shall we say, expensive toy is a bit of a minefield. You will find a ton of reviews where the Sphero BB-8 Droid hasn’t even been tested, let alone bought, so the review will be just hearsay.
Well, I had a good look around and probably the best one I’ve found is from Stuff.com where they go into great detail showing you the pro’s and cons before forking out a considerable amount of moolah as a Christmas present for little Timmy.
For what I can see it’s controlled by your phone using the free Sphero BB-8 Droid App and, by all accounts, it’s pretty simple.
One thing I do like about the little Robot though is the fact that it features in the new Star Wars film “The Force Awakens”…only a bit smaller in scale. I’m a big fan of the Star Wars movies and would personally love to own it, if only as a paperweight!
Sphero BB-8 Droid How It Works
I could spend the next two hours babbling on how I think the Sphero BB-8 Droid Robot works…but I still have no idea! Better then to hand you over to the official website where there is everything you will want to know about our BB Droid friend and even more to blow your mind! Just click the link below:

Sphero BB-8 Droid Where To Buy?
The Sphero BB-8 Droid is available to buy on Amazon and it’s available now. Will the shops sell out before Christmas? Will the Sphero BB8 Droid be the Christmas gift parents will be fighting over come December 24th? Will it be the most purchaced toy on Black Friday?
Who knows? But keep an keen eye on it just in case and if you’re worried you may miss out (or forget!), pop it in your Amazon basket as this helps as a reminder in the ever stressful game of picking Christmas presents and then forgetting exactly what they were!
