Sphero R2D2 Review User Reviews
Roughly 80% of the reviews we found for this little guy were positive. While it may seem like a children’s toy, it seems that adult Star Wars fans find the little droid both fun and charming. Here and there, there are negative reviews, but people’s problems are not with the droid, but with the app that controls the droid. Some users found it wasn’t very easy to use or didn’t work quite the way they wanted. That said, these people are in the minority, and most users love Sphero’s R2D2.
Sphero R2D2 Review Summary
As a whole, we’d have to give this product a firm recommendation. There are two drawbacks that we should probably mention. One is the price tag. These little guys run for $75 on Amazon. The other is that they seem to be in high demand. It’s not just R2D2 that Sphero makes. They also make a BB-8 and BB-9E (the evil version of BB-8 from The Last Jedi) model. All three models are sold out on the Sphero website (when we checked). They’re still available on Amazon, but who knows how long the supplies will last. The bottom line is that we definitely recommend this little droid. There’s a reason supplies are running out.
