fun gadget for kids, adults and pets
very durable and we can't wait to use in the water with the retrievers
Great toy for all ages. The app is simple to grasp and the toy definitely has it's own personality. The only downside is that the ball is super slippery, so the grip on it is not ideal. I ordered the nubby cover to see if it makes this ball easier to control.
Installation: The sphero is easy to set up. I have the app on my android phone and my ipad and they were both easy to download and set up.
The only suggestion for improvement is that there is an extra step that there isn't with the Ollie. Maybe that will be fixed with later upgrades.
Play value: It's great fun! Even my 4-yr old nephew can use it, not very well yet but he's getting the hang of it. Needs the nubby covers to be more effective on smooth or uneven terrain.
Battery usage: It takes 3 hrs to charge to give one hour of play. Hopefully this will improve with later versions. Love that it's induction charging and that makes it waterproof.
Durability: Top marks here. Having a 4-yr old and under-2 yr old twins playing with it, it certainly gets a workout. It's been thrown across the room, dropped numerous times and used to bash things. And still it keeps on ticking...
Highly recommended for adults and kids alike.
I bought this rugged little ball for a friend's daughter and liked it so much I went and bought one for myself. It does everything they say it will do and then some! The 1 and only problem I encountered is that, even though it worked with my htc one smart phone with the latest android, it did not work well. The app for android is far from accurate, and makes "driving" very difficult. However, I've found that it works flawlessly with iOS devices and is best played on my ipad mini. Best rc toy I've ever owned, hopefully they work out the "bugs" for use with android platforms in the future.
I bought the Ollie and Sphero for my niece and nephews. (2,2 and 4). They're great fun for both adults and kiddies. It's been over 2 weeks and we're still playing with them.
This is a short review but, a little story is my kid has an iPod 4th generation (ios 6) so he was complaining other toys like anki drive only work on ios 7 and later but sphero 2.0 works on ios 6! so he is very happy with it! Sphero 2.0 is worth the money.
I bought two of these little orbs so my daughter and I could play together. Completely addicitve fun! The dog loves them and with two of them it creates more of a challenge for them. We have been levelling up for some time and always have fun with them. I would highly recommend purchasing if you're tired of any of the other short-lived RC alternatives.
Great way to keep the dog entertained. I relax and have fun driving Sphero and she has fun chasing it around. Sphero is really tough and can take any abuse the dog is able to dish out. My only complaints are that it can take a while for Sphero to connect to my iPhone, and it can be hard to keep Sphero aligned with the phone and rolling in the right direction.
I got this on sale for [price] and it's a pretty great remote control toy. Was looking for something to replace the remote control vehicles my son gets for xmas and within weeks the batterys in the remote need changing and the axles get hair and debris in them so I am constantly cleaning them out. No cleaning the sphereo, just wipe it with a rag and done. Alot of good apps for it as well. Very happy here
Should have looked up more info from the manufacturers website beforehand, as this site lacks some important details...
It's cited as being compatible with android and iphone, which is only partly true: my sons tablet has android(4.0 ice cream sandwich), but it neglected to mention that the apps for the ball must be downloaded from googleplay. As it happens his tablet is one that I have discovered does not have that. I have a windows phone, with which i got a basic app that allowed me some basic control of it, so he got to play a bit with it on Christmas, but still not impressed.
Which brings me to my second issue with it. The Sphero ball comes with 2 ramps to jump with, as demonstrated in the video displayed here on this website. I tried myself for like half an hour and could not get it to go over the ramp...it just spun and rolled back. In the video it shows a few clips with the nubby cover on it, which might help with that, is not included and not offered for sale from here.
I did have someone with an android phone download a few of the games and tried it out, and I will say that it does work as well as advertised. It charges quickly, lasts well over the 1 hour play time it was described as having, and really is a remarkable little unit.
The friend with the cell phone that tried the Sphero is ordering one for himself, and I've ordered a nubby cover and am looking for a different tablet. Know what you're getting b4 you order I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Good luck and happy shopping :)
My son loved it Christmas morning great toy. Lots of apps
