Interactive Star Wars droids

The release of ‘The Force Awakens’ back in 2015, brought BB-8 to the big screen. Little more than a ball with a small dome on top, BB-8 was full of character and a big fan favourite. Tech-toy-favourites Sphero have created this miniature recreation of the droid that is remote controlled via smartphone or the bundled force-band controller! It will roll around your house with all the magic of the movie models and even makes the right noises!

Since the BB-8 launch, Sphero have expanded their selection of droids to include BB-9E as well as the classic R2-D2 droid. Both have similar functionalities, remote control via smartphone app and simply oodles of character. Sadly at over £100 these do not come cheap and as such these are only for die-hard fans or those with deep pockets.
