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 got this thing with high expectations. In reality, it doesn't do very much at all. You can roll it, and that's about it. It is marginally better than a tennis ball, although the 45 minute battery life makes it useless pretty quickly.

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

        I purchased version one of Sphero for gift when it was first available and the kids loved it. Version 2.0 comes full circle with the brighter, faster, and smarter Sphero 2.0. More than 25 apps allow for table top gaming like color grab, joystick gaming where Sphero is the controller, driving games and augmented reality gameplay with Sharkey and Zombies. I like the driving best as you can hit speeds of up to 6 feet per second, which is faster than my chihuahua can run. Good for pranks too, place Sphero under a coffee cup and watch people freak out. Great fun and limitless potential of play that awaits with the apps.

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

        I purchased the Sphero after playing with one in the store. There's a speed option in the driving app and they had it at a lower setting to make it more manageable. On the smooth floor in the store, with its crowded displays, too fast made it a wrecking ball, slamming into every little thing. Slower and it was absolutely a matter of precision driving, which I found enjoyable. They assured me that with a bit of open space to really run it at full speed and take advantage of the far bluetooth range it'd be a much more enjoyable experience for my speed-loving side and they were absolutely correct! I've seen other reviews mention that the controls are hard or it doesn't run well and I'm left to believe that's user error because this thing, handled properly, can do some amazing things. I like to sit it under a chair and drive it in figure-8s, swerving between the legs without touching. If they were right, I wouldn't be able to do it but I can. It's how I relieve stress, even! But at full-speed I absolutely wouldn't be able to do it. It's like driving a car; go at an appropriate speed for what you want to do and you won't go sliding off the road.

        Our animals love this thing. The dog can't break it because it's a hard plastic (I wouldn't have let him have it if I were there that first time but he found it, tried to chew on it, and couldn't make a dent). I chase the dog with it. Now that I think about it, maybe he doesn't love it but I just love chasing him with it. Either way, he can't hurt it and it won't hurt him so we have fun. It's also completely waterproof so if he ever tries to drown it he'll be sorely disappointed.

        Now I want more apps for this. I've got a couple I enjoy playing but not one that I'm addicted to just yet. That's my one thing about Sphero that could be improved but complaining about not having my addictive app is silly. What I bought this for works great and the apps aren't even the icing on the cake, they're a 2nd cake. What have I really got to complain about? Fingers crossed there are more apps on the way, though, just because I like getting addicted to quick games.

              We bought Sphero because it looked like a fun toy for our son. However the ball is really hard to control. It never drives straight or turns the way it should. It crashes around the house like a pinball, nicking furniture and damaging walls along the way.

                  This is a very cool toy to play with and has a lot of potential to become an everyday toy, but the novelty wears off very quickly, and for me it was on the first day. Even though there are really more than 20 apps, only 3-4 apps are good.

                  I was very excited to buy the original Sphero and when this came out, I was even more excited and was keen to get one for myself. Don't get me wrong, this is an amazing toy but I don't think there are enough apps to keep you playing with it. I would not really recommend this to anyone, no matter what age, because you will get bored quickly and it will then become an expensive toy on a nice stand on your desk.

                    I bought this for my 10 year old for Christmas. It came with 30.00 worth of bonus items such as a nubby cover, ramps, travel pouch, etc. the whole family has had a blast with this robotic ball of fun! We are considering getting a second one! It was easy to connect to bluetooth and the apps were easy and quickly loaded. It has bounced down our stairs several times and no harm was done. It is very durable and I would recommend it for children and adults.
