  • Overview

    Bringing a new part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens into your home, BB-8 is the app-enabled Droid whose authentic movements are at your control with iPhone or iPad.

    BB-8 relates to your interactions, showing a range of expressions and actually perking up at the sound of your voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously. Or make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself. Even create and view holographic recordings. It’s now possible to explore the galaxy with your own trusty Astromech Droid by your side. BB-8 is more than a toy—it’s your companion.

    Rather than using the Force, BB-8 is powered by induction charging and connects via Bluetooth Smart BLE with your iPhone, iPad, or other device. Its tough polycarbonate shell keeps it safe from water and the dark side.

    Highlights

    Authentic movement that you guide with your iPhone or iPad

    Listening and response capabilities let BB-8 recognize and react to your voice

    Autonomous behavior gives BB-8 a mind of its own as you explore the Star Wars galaxy together

    Adaptive personality means BB-8’s attitude and actions evolve as you interact

    Did You Notice?

    BB-8's unique personality is adaptive, changing as you play.

      Fun and Invincible.

I have had it for over a week now, and it's fallen of a 3 foot table numerous times, and it still works. I was driving it one time, without the head on just to be fun, a girl thought it was a ball, kicked it across a large room, the thing has no scratch, and it still works like new. I highly recommend buying this droid, I still discover new features everyday. This is the droid your looking for!

      The cutest Sphero

      This is my first Sphero droid and I love it. I saw the BB-8 and immediately wanted it just because it's so cute, but I was on the fence about apps. I did a bunc This is my first Sphero droid and I love it. I saw the BB-8 and immediately wanted it just because it's so cute, but I was on the fence about apps. I did a bunch of research comparing to the SPRK and Ollie, and was worried I'd get bored with just the BB-8 app... However, just recently other apps have started supporting the BB-8, including Sphere Lighting Lab and the Tickle app. So then it was a no brainer! It's a lot of fun!

      SAME AS THE MOVIE

      This droid is amazing. Literally the best toy I have ever owned. I love how all you need is an iPhone to control this thing, and as a Star Wars fan, this is alm This droid is amazing. Literally the best toy I have ever owned. I love how all you need is an iPhone to control this thing, and as a Star Wars fan, this is almost identical to the BB-8 droid in the movie, besides the size. I was very surprised how to head actually stayed in place when the body is rolling very fast. This is the droid you are looking for!

      Awesome Toy and Very Well Built!

      I got my BB-8 as a gift for Christmas, and it has kept up ever since. The app is easy to use and the toy is cool and well built. I have rammed my BB-8 into wall I got my BB-8 as a gift for Christmas, and it has kept up ever since. The app is easy to use and the toy is cool and well built. I have rammed my BB-8 into walls multiple times and in patrol mode it was flying everywhere. With this being said, I am happy to say my BB-8 is still in perfect condition.

      BB-8 droid is a piece of garbage

      Hours spent trying to connect it for my 8 yr old. Don't buy this until they iron out the kinks
