Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

Best Christmas Gift for Collectors

Why people love it
  • A perfect toy for a grown-up man-child (and for kids, of course)
  • Awesome for a Star Wars memorabilia collector
  • Hours of fun playing with this remote controlled droid
Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

Not pet-friendly and doesn't work on carpets.


Features: Do we really have to get into why this would make the PERFECT Christmas gift for your Star Wars-loving husband?

This little droid is designed to run on hardwood and concrete floors (though it's not great with carpets), and he can control it using Bluetooth-enabled voice commands. He talks into his phone (Android and iOS both work) to get it to move around, and he can set it to follow, patrol, or even customize its movement.

Not only will the droid recognize his voice, but it responds in its classic whistles and beeps. He'll get 60 minutes of play time before the droid needs to be recharged. The gyroscopic propulsion keeps it moving around as he play with it—and we're sure your children will want to get in on the fun too.

Price: The toy is pricey at over $110. However, it's something that he will love to add to his Star Wars collection. Isn't that a small price to pay to see that goofy grin on his face?
