Hasbro BB8

The Hasbro Remote Control BB8 is none of that.  It is a simple remote control device.  But you can steer it around the house and move the head independently.

Here is a really cool video of what went into the design of the Hasbro BB-8

Which should you buy?  It depends.  For me, in my office its the Spyro BB8, 100%.  But at home I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old that will be the people playing with it most of the time. For that reason my pick has to be the Hasbro BB8.  It’s bigger, it will roll around multiple surfaces better.  And it doesn’t require an app to use.

You can find either of them on Amazon at this point.
