What parent testers had to say:
The Sphero is an amazing, interactive product that can be enjoy by kids ages 8 and up. Who would have thought a round ball with build in technology could be so much fun? The Sphero is just that, it's fun and entertaining. The apps that you can get at the Google Store or App Store are super cool. There's apps like Sphero Cam where you can record or take still shots of your Sphero while driving it, and Zombies come alive in a virtual real to life game called "Rolling Dead" that even this mom has to admit is quite addictive! The Sphero is easy to use, built well and can even entertain your pets with Cat-Sphere app. Overall the Sphero gets kids up off the couch, allowing them to engage, play and have fun with this interactive toy that produces hours and hours of endless fun!
Sphero is a fun, interactive toy that in my family, both kids and adults love. It takes only minutes to get Sphero up and running. The APP is very easy to download and use. There are great explanations/tips for the APP and all that it does. Whether you want to just drive Sphero, take on challenges or play the games, Sphero provides hours of fun and entertainment. I love in driving mode that you can choose to use joy stick mode or tilt mode with your iPod, iPad or Android device. The games are pretty awesome and we are still discovering all of them. It is pretty awesome to use the Sphero itself as a joystick for a game. I would recommend the Sphero. The only problem with Sphero is having to share it because everyone that sees it thinks it is sooooooo cool.
Tons of hi-tech rolling amusement with a revolution in mobile game play! The Sphero is fun for all ages and offers tons of great apps that make it enjoyable for the whole family. On top of play, it has also taught my daughter better coordination and most importantly, patience!
