Welcome To The Future
This is the latest Star Wars toy but it is also the greatest Star Wars toy ever, thanks to today’s technology! A perfect gift idea for the techie in your life, especially the Star Wars-obsessed techie; this BB-8 droid is a must-have.
The BB-8 droid can explore by itself or be remote controlled by an app that is downloadable to your mobile device or laptop. You can steer it using the app and you can also communicate with it by asking it questions.
The latest version of this toy comes with a SmartBand which you wear on your wrist and control BB-8 using the force. It also comes sporting the “wear and tear” of Resistance missions. I personally like the original model best, all shiny and new. Plus, it is considerably less expensive.
The Sphero BB-8 droid has emotion-like responses and I am thoroughly impressed with the authentic look, sounds, and reactions. Maybe in the future, the BB-8 droid will be life-sized!
