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:

    This is the best iPhone accessory I have ever seen. It connects fine to my iPhone 5, and is easy to get used to and works great. I generally drive it around in the living room, but there are so many other ways to. It entertains toddlers and cats really well, is waterproof, and is good outside (not in grass or steep places).

    But be cautious, because it is not as durable as you might think. If it falls too far down (ex: a flight of staris) it will slowly stop working on the inside. Brookstone is really good with warranty though, and I have gotten it replaced for such accidents by giving them a call.

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

    I am a gadget lover, and think this is an imaginative, fun, durable toy for people (and animals) of all ages. It can't really offroad. No grass, no mud, no sticky surfaces, but the sand or the beach is a cool place (as long as it isn't in the sticky sand) to "play" with Sphero 2.0. It does get a little boring after awhile though. It runs for an hour, then charges for 3 hours. I find that quite appealing in an RC toy. I would recommend it to kids and adults, but it does take some getting used to. It has tons of apps and games that give it a twist. They include :Sphero; Sphero Drive; Sphero Pet, and many more.

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

      The Sphero 2.0 is an awesome RC toy that you can use anywhere.
      Our skittish cat loves it; chasing after it, running from it, and seeking it out to jump over it.
      The 'driver learning curve' is simple and the iPhone / iPad remote control is convenient and easy to master.. The more you use the Sphero, the better you become with it and the more tricks you 'earn'.
      The battery life is very good and the charge time is very reasonable.
      The Nubby Cover is great for using the Sphero outside.
      I'm retired and the Sphero unleashes the child trapped inside. Try it, you'll like it. It is "a ball of fun" !!!

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

      The product is solid and well designed. It's a lot of fun, especially when using for pets, youngsters, and showing to co-workers. However, it does not work well with Android 2.x devices, even though the website states that it is compatible. You need a fairly modern Android device for this to work, otherwise the control software may crash a lot.

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

              This robot is great and comes with many downloadable apps from the Itunes or Google Play store. Most apps are free with only a couple third party apps that cost money. It's great for stimulating creative thinking with programming for kids or adults who've never played around with robotics before but it is very basic in that department. There are many fun and quirky things you can do with sphero including using it as a controller for app games and making sphero do odd little tricks and such. You can even "level up" sphero as if it was a video game character using the main sphero app and it will gain abilities as its level increases. Kids and teens will probably get the most fun out of this but I'm 27 and I love it. It can even swim in a pool and is extremely durable. The only downside (and this could just be an issue with my own tablet pc) is that sometimes it becomes difficult to pair it up using bluetooth and many times it has lost the connection or can suddenly do something unexpected. My tablet is a bit dated though so that may be the real issue. Overall I recommend this to people who are looking for a quirky little robot!
