The 411: We are completely in love with our little Spero. The kids and I have gotten pretty good at controlling Sphero and take him everywhere. It is like having a toy, a game and a pet with you wherever you go.
This is my favorite Goddess and Sphero video. Goddess thinks it is hysterical.
What we love most:
- Sphero is a robot
- Sphero is fun and easy to use
- There are so many games to play alone or with friends
- Everywhere we go, it's like we are the Pied Piper. Kids follow the ball, laughing. It is so funny to watch how they gravitate to it.
- Cats and dogs will love playing with Sphero. I can't wait until I can try this out with someone who has a cat.
- You can change Sphero to whatever color you want.
- My kids LOVE it.
- In an electronic world kids aren't playing with toys as long as when I was a kid. This combines two of kids favorite toys. Your cell phone and a toy. All you need is a Blue Tooth connection.
- The apps are easy and fun.
- Charging doesn't take long and you get about an hour of fun time.
- Controlling Sphero is easy to learn. You can have him moving within 1 minute of setting him up.
- This is a great gift for techie fans, robot fans, gadget fans and electronic fans.
You can get Sphero right now on Amazon for under $100.00.
