My son got this droid for his birthday and I'm happy to say it did NOT disappoint!! It's so much fun to drive around and not all that difficult to do (my son has very little patience, so he would have given up long ago if it took a lot of practice). Besides, if you don't want to control it yourself, you can always put it on patrol and just watch him go on his own. It's as if he calculates where he's going and whether or not he'll fit (we watched him slide his head down the side of his body so that he could perfectly fit under the leg of a chair and slide his head back up as he came out the other side). Then there is the force band. It is SO cool with the force band. You can control it with a wave of your hand! We haven't come close to figuring out everything the force band can do and we're still looking forward to using the option that allows you to watch Star Wars movies with your droid. We can't wait to see what that's like! He's so enamored with it that he now considers it a member of the family! He actually puts it to bed at night with a makeshift pillow and blanket, calls it his brother and once made me read it a bedtime story!!!

This app has truly changed the way I look at robotics! I love playing with bb-8 and sharing the Star Wars universe with my family! The new update is so so amazing! It was what I wanted to happen! Bb-8's reactions to force awakens are the best! Thank you sphero! Keep up the great work! I can't wait to see more awesome updates in the future! In addition to my post I would love to see more things added to the app. For example , maybe some more virtual reality experiences with BB-8. I loved that the force band has that and I would love to see that with new updates once the last Jedi comes out! :) This app is still amazing as always!

Really love my BB8, app is great but I hate that it has to be running for the little guy to do anything! I feel like the BB8 itself should have enough memory / processing power to take a command from the app and roll with it (haha). Even if this isn't how every function works, I would hope that you guys could allow a few of the functions to run without the app running. At the same time, even if the app isn't running on the phone (or running in the background) it would be great if the phone could still make the BB8 sounds. To summarize - great gadget, definitely happy with it but the shortcomings are that it relies on your cell phone's mic and speaker and the app must be running. I paid $160 with force-band (pretty cool) but would gladly pay another $50 to upgrade my BB-8 for one with a mic, speaker and a bigger microprocessor inside. More powerful motors would be nice for going over carpet but I won't be greedy! Keep the improvements coming!

I love this toy, it works Really well. However, I haven't touched him in months, & now, after he's done charging, the app's option to drive him around myself isn't working. Before, I'd be asked to point the phone at BB-8 to sync, then I'd turn a blue light to tell BB-8 where I am in relation to him. I didn't get either of those. I'd move the joystick, but nothing would happen. The other options on the app work fine, but the whole point of the app is to drive him myself, & That's the one that isn't working! Is it an update issue? Cause this is Kind of a big problem!

As a Star Wars fan, the droids have always been my favorite characters. This little guy is a lot of fun to play with, but there are a few bugs. First and foremost, with all the pets I have, the wheels on his head get wrapped up with fur really easily, and they are rather hard to clean. Second, he struggles to run on carpet, and while he runs well on hardwood/tile it's kinda noisy. I also wish there were a few more voice commands. That being said, I don't regret a penny, and I'm looking forward to when the R2D2 gets released.
