    My 8yr old plays with this, the outer shell is interchangeable but over time from opening it to charge it’s loosing grip. Apps for this needs a lot of work, at times it’s difficult to pair but there multiple apps to choose from. One app has coding and project to try out with steps and videos.

    My daughter has used Sphero in school and wanted her own. When they came out with the mini it was a perfect balance of fun and price. She only wanted to use it indoors and be able to easily take it with her. The mini is perfect for this and use can still use the Sphero education app for custom programming.

    My family had a blast. I downloaded the 2 apps to control my mini. Very cool Tech item. The joystick control would sometimes get stuck or seem to roll off my screen at times, But I persistently kept going with the fun. I really like this techno/robotic Toy. Should bring lots of entertainment.

    I originally got it because I have to try most "techy" things, and it ended up being a great toy for my cats! I put it in the floor and they chase it and try to get it constantly...Even my older cat that normals only plays with things that are within his reach was up chasing it!!

    Super easy to get started just driving the thing around the floor with the app, but if you dig deeper, there's lots of fun to be had with the programming. A great starter in the Spero world - it seems like the equivalent of the large 1.0 version a friend got years ago.

    Iv played with the big one but think it’s too pricy this one was perfect at 50$ I love goofing off with it and it’s my cats favorite thing. He’ll play for hours long past when the battery dies and then stare at it while it’s charging waiting for more A+ love this ghing

    Does everything it says it does.Easy to setup with my Note 8.One thing I will say is be careful with the plastic case its extremely fragile.My thumb got stuck when the the plastic snapped off.

    I ordered this for my son’s 8th birthday and he loves it! There are a lot of ways to get the Sphero mini to move and you can even practice coding with the regular sphero app (which I loved!). My son couldn’t wait to take this to the neighbors and play with it with the car!

    This was so cute, I bought it last minute when I saw it in the store. It has some cute games, where you use the Mini Sphero as a controller. I also thought my cats might get a kick out of it. All in all the product works well and you can change the color of the light inside.

    We already had the R2-D2 and BB-8 robots from Sphero, so this was a very cute little addition to the family. I love all the little mini games. Charge time is fast and battery life is pretty good. My only complaint is how often I have to re-connect for the best control & steering.

    Got these for my 5 and 6 year old. They loved it. Only down side is that it is hard for younger kids to calibrate, and you have to calibrate every time you use it. Other than that, it moves quick and the controls are easy and responsive.

    Kind of difficult to learn, but a blast once you get the hang of it. My sons school uses these in stem club and we thought since he liked it there so much he would love to have one at home. It didn’t disappoint. Lots of fun and educational.

    5 Year Old Liked It; Struggled with Orientation

    Five year old thought it was so cool. Problem was, you orientate the ball to where you are located so it knows which way is "forward", or "left", and 5 years old don't stay put, so the orientation was always off. Its a quick fix on the phone. But still.

    This toy is so fun. I highly reccomend if you are looking for a gift that is different and fun for the whole family. Use the app to control the ball and it will soon be zooming around the house. The games on the app are fun too.

    I am a developer, and got this mainly to test as a bluetooth peripheral with a hand gesture control app I am working on, but as a device by itself, it's a very fun and cute toy to use.

    The Sphero Mini line is great for beginner programmers. It works extremely well with Sphero Edu programming suite and allows young programmers, and those that are young at heart, to learn how to code while having fun.
