The coolest Star Wars toy ever?

They BB-8'in, we be rollin'...

We all saw the adorable BB-8 Drone in the trailer for upcoming Star Wars film The Force Awakens (it's above if you haven't) and we’re sure the whole world will fall in love with the cheeky little chappy once the film hits our screens in December. 

But if you can’t wait that long for your Star Wars fix, how about this nifty mini version of BB-8, which can be controlled via an app on your iOS or Android smartphone.

Made by robot specialists Sphero, BB-8 listens and reacts to your voice; has an adaptive personality that evolves the more you interact with it; can record, send and display holographic videos; and even has a mind of its own.

At just 11cm tall, the little droid isn’t much of an all-terrain vehicle, however its high-grade polycarbonate body means that it can, at least, withstand some pretty heavy collisions.

Just three hours spent charging on the wireless dock is enough for an hour of fun-filled drive time, and you can send it up to 30 metres away before it loses signal. The force is strong with this one.

Details: AED 550. Visit
