More than a toy – the BB-8 Droid is your personal companion. 

With the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App-Enabled Droid, bring the magic of Star Wars: The Force Awakens into your home.

The BB-8 Droid works with Smartphones and Tablets and is as authentic as it is advanced. With an adaptive personality that changes as you play, the BB-8 is unlike any other robot. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. Set the BB-8 to 'patrol' and watch it explore autonomously, all on it's own.
