    Lower Priced Sphero

    The biggest plus of this product is that it charges quickly (about 20 minutes) while other Sphero products take about 2 hours. It's far less expensive so I appreciate that Sphero tried to create something more affordable. It's not very responsive and it clatters as it moves because the tech rolls inside the outer shell. But because of its small size kids are able to do fun things with it such a put it under a plastic cup and make the cup move across a smooth floor. I give this a "yes" recommendation based on being more affordable for some families who want to offer their children a code-capable toy.

    A very good gift, it is elegant and resistant. The larger size is better, but it is very good for this price

    I love that it fits easily in my purse. As a school librarian who teachers robotics this is very handy to have. Students can run it through an obstacle course or program it using my phone.

    My son always wanted something like this but was unsure if he'll like it. This product was not expensive and the craft is tough. Needless to say, he enjoys it and it has a pretty long charge life compared to other similar toys.

    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.

    Bought it as a gift for my 9-year-old niece. She saw it at her class in school and wanted to get one. It's a good way for kids who are interested in robotics and programming. The sphero mini is about the size of a ball and is programmable with any iOS or android device. So far she hasn't gotten over it and I'm hoping she'll enjoy it for at least a little while before she moves on to something else.

    Larger Sphero devices tend to run from $100 and up. This Mini device can use the same Edu App as all other devices so a child can continue to hone their Coding skills. Big plus is that is charges quickly (about 30 minutes compared to an 1 1/2 hr charge time for larger ones. @@@@@@@ Downside is it doesn't run a true path, so that can prove somewhat frustrating. As one who works with kids, I have recommended this product to parents as a more financially feasible means to gift their children one of the coveted Sphero products.

    My son loves to play with this, and he is developing good skills from interacting with it. It is intuitive so he figured it out pretty quickly. I expected the app to have more features and complexity though. I hope it keeps developing/improving over time. Otherwise, I am very happy with this purchase. Price point seems reasonable too.
