Product Description

Move over R2-D2 and C3-PO, there’s a new droid in town and it goes by the name of BB-8! This adorably cute astromech droid is set to star in the new Star Wars movie ‘The Force Awakens’ and it’s got everyone at RED5 well and truly hy-spherical with excitement!

This rolling ball of personality is the latest creation from Sphero, and just like the V2 and the Ollie, it’s completely controllable from a smartphone or tablet. Not only that but you can also control BB-8 with various voice commands or it can roam autonomously exploring its environment, hopefully avoiding Kylo Ren and the First Order in the process.

No astromech droid is complete without the ability to create and view holographic recordings (help me Obi Wan you’re my only hope) and you’ll be pleased to know the BB-8 also has this ability programmed into its circuitry (with the help of the clever app).

We can’t emphasize enough just how cool this little droid is and we’re sure you’ll love getting to know your new companion and its range of expressions. 

Update! The coolest toy in the galaxy just got cooler! Control your BB8 droid with a flick of your hand with the new Force Band or check out the special edition Battleworn BB8.

Please note: Unfortunately the Star Wars BB8 Droid is excluded from all our coupon code offers.

The best gift - Review by saima

The mission to get one completed. I'm over the moon with it. It works fantastically well, likes to go on its own mini adventure sometimes and also really easy to command using my voice/mobile phone. Red5 also offer it at the best price I've found. Overall my favourite buy of the year in terms of gadgets!!!!

Cool droid - Review by Andrew

Well made and works great. Very happy with bb8 sphero droid, it does what it's advertised to do,and seems to have a mind of its own. I recommend this product.

Now this is fantastic. - Review by Robin

This BB-8 Droid is absolutely brilliant, works better on harder flat surfaces rather than carpet. Well worth the money spent and can't wait to get hold of an Ollie to go with him

Top present this year - Review by Emma


The best thing you can ever have - Review by Nishanth

Gyroscopic rolling movement with a energised shield holding the head is just the droid of the future.
Though gets little tweakish after some time, just need to clean the wheels under the head and it gets back to somewhat normal.
Performance gets lagging after sometime but still movement will not be compromised.
Response is pretty quick and few available voice commands are just plus to the fun one can have.
After sometime anyone can become master of it. Not recommended for outdoor use as the ball can easily get damaged as it's made of plastic.

Use the force! - Review by Barry

This is awesome! Very cool, especially when bb8 goes wondering by itself!
