    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and kinda cute. Very well made gadget. Software works flawlessly with my phone. Audio comes from phone but almost seems like it comes from BB8 directly. I also have the bluetooth command wristband which I recommend because that works independent from the phone. I like the charger design and always keep BB8 in it when not using. Make sure you clean the wheels after use especially if you have carpet because it will pick up dirt and go underneath the wheels. Very easy to use, fun and cute. A must buy for any BB8 fan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is an Excellent toy to play with I got BB-8 for Christmas from my dad. I really enjoyed how BB-8 stays awake when he is charging on his dock. I love the voice command because he will respond to me when I talk to him.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware- No Speakers on the Droid!! WHY WOULD THE SOUND NOT COME FROM THE ROBOT??! Seriously, this has to be a design oversight- the sound comes from your phone speakers, not the droid (kinda defeats the purpose of having a decent range from the phone). I would also highly suggest adding an option to purchase a remote for those who don't want to control it with their phone. Might also be nice to offer a larger model for more money for those that want a larger scale version (maybe it could even have a tiny tray compartment like in the movie?)! Best things are the charging base and high quality details/feel. The controls navigate well and are precise, but again would like to see a remote control option that doesn't require use of a smartphone, even if it's an additionally purchased accessory created later. Great start, I can't wait to see what improvements Gen 2 will bring!! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and fun!!! This is such a fun thing to have and it is amazing the way it functions. Just remember that all the sounds and other functions BB-8 makes comes from the app on your tablet or phone not from the bot directly.. The bot is so cute and funny as it moves around my home. It seems to be made of high quality materials although I would be hesitant to let kids play around with it unsupervised. It is packaged really well and exhibits quality care and crafting. I have no gripes with it. The free app works really well on my ipod 6th gen device. It is all connected through bluetooth and syncing was very easy. You must download the app for BB-8 to function otherwise it is a statue. The charger ads as a nice display piece with BB-8 resting on it. Any Star Wars fan or gadget fan should really enjoy this. 10/10 from me.
