Gets reaaaallllyyyy boring in a matter of time

There's nothing much to do with this overpriced bouncy ball besides play the same games over and over again and make it spin around on your floor and flash a couple of lights, im not saying it's a bad product in any way, I just don't like spending a hundred bucks on a rc ball. I will say though, this thing can go through ALOT, I've dropped this thing on pretty much every surface from pretty much every height possible and it still works to this very day (I watched a video of some dudes giving the Sphero a direct hit from a shotgun and it maintained perfectly, a small scratch and that was all), also it's waterproof, so that's good! I feel like the guys behind Sphero are trying to milk their idea, however. For instance, the BB-8 Sphero that was a big hit not to long back, but I have yet to hear anyway talk about how fun their Sphero is, Star Wars themed or not. In short this thing is pretty cool for about five second but then it just gets repetitive and time consuming, you'd occupy your kids more by spending 12$ on a disc of PeeWees Big Adventure and a couple of lollipops, let along spending 100$ on a remote controlled wheel.



I honestly think this is garbage, I mean it’s not bad but could do better, my opinion is that tickle me Elmo first generation was 9000% better then this rolling garbage. I would have got cozmo if I knew what this junk did. My kid really wanted this I bought it, he seemed happy at first, but he stopped playing after not even 1 hour. And know it’s sitting around like furniture!!!!!! Please add new update or something, just don’t make me waste 100$ on something that’s broken. Or what did I just say broken, let me tell you guys of a story, so my son took it outside and after two seconds he came back with a Brocken Sphero, he said it rolled down one step and the case just cracked!! So he begged me for a new one and I said yes. I should have said no because he hasn’t even touched his!! Anyways it’s garbage and stuff.

P.s. jk!!! It’s just a prank, I love this toy and love the app keep up the good work!!


Great product, terrible app

First of all I do like the Sphero product. It is a great remote controlled ball, but that's all I want (and paid for): a remote controlled ball. I don't want a over complicated flashy app with missions and unlocks, I just want locomotion and light controls. The old 'Drive' app was exactly that. It allowed for the device to excel at what it is: an rc ball. Now that the drive app is no longer available (and if you do still have it, it will no longer function if you update the firmware) this 'Sphero' app is the next best, but it hinders and obstructs the main purpose of the product which is to be a remote controlled ball.
Other thought: the app cannot change orientation. It is landscape with left side of the screen being the bottom and cannot flip. It is annoying for me because I like my landscape apps right side to be the bottom, but all in all not a big deal.

Final suggestion: bring back the Drive app. It's great that Sphero with its many apps can be more than just an rc ball, but don't impede the main function of the product.

Thank you for your comment. If you're looking for a simple drive interface, we recommend you take a look at our Sphero Edu Application.
