The Sphero 2.0 is FANTASTIC! It is fast and fun to control! It is 100% waterproof so you can drive it in a pool or through puddles with no problem!

My kids love Sphero!
My cats love Sphero!
I love Sphero :)

It is really enjoyable to drive this clever little robot. I definitely recommend this.

It does take a bit to get used to the controls, but if you are struggling, just bring down the speed until you get used to it! You will be going on walks and hitting ramps in no time.

DO buy this version with the white nubby cover and cary bag. The cover protects Sphero and make him a better swimmer! The cover is great and looks cool too!

I bought this thinking it was better than sliced bread. But when I started using it, I noticed it was not very fast as claimed, also controling it is a challange in itself (you have to constantly be reseting the steering). Apps are not reliable at all; many do not connect with ball.

First time users will be very amused, but after a short while it will be an expensive paper weight.

Comments about Sphero? 2.0 App-Controlled Wireless Robotic Ball:

We have 2 older 9 and 11 year old mini schnauzers who love Sphero. They are both healthy and vigorous . They are natural clowns. The younger dog treats it as someting alive and if he gets it tries to bury it in the couch covers. Merriment ensues.

        Comments about Sphero? 2.0 App-Controlled Wireless Robotic Ball:

        Sphero is an awful product. At first, it's fun and exciting, until you've used it for an hour. Sphero is useless, and therefore after 30-45 minutes of play, you've seen it all! The only functions this thing has is moving around on the floor and changing color, which often doesn't work. Not only is it not a good product, but the price is absolutely ridiculous for what little use it has. Also, most of the apps that you can download for it are expensive, boring, and faulty. The sphero was not AT ALL the product for me!

            I just got Sphero for my 8th birthday. I love the color changing. You can earn points with Sphero with some of the apps. I only gave it four stars because it takes 3 hours to charge for only one hour of play time!

              Comments about Sphero? 2.0 App-Controlled Wireless Robotic Ball:

              Great gift! Sphero was a big hit and provided fun for many different ages of visiting children over the holidays. The toddlers followed it around (incessantly) and the teenagers made it do tricks and then used it in gaming. Brookstone's combo pack was just what we needed, and the price was excellent. With a coupon code and free shipping, it was even better.

              I bought two of these; one for my son and one for my nephew. They play with them for hours at a time. The battery lasts! They have taken their Spheros to a nursing home to play while visiting a relative and two of the residents joined in the fun and chased the Spheros around from their wheelchairs. The kids of course allow them to catch the Spheros. The nursing home staff was surprised when one of the residents, who never smiles, was laughing, giggling, and smiling nonstop. This resident even commented that she could not remember when she had so much fun. This is a great toy and an even better rehabilitator!

                          Made from a slick plastic material that gives it bad traction on smooth surfaces.
