Sphero Legacy Products
Sphero made innovative robots for Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar.
We partnered with Disney in 2015 to create licensed robots for their properties including Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar. You may’ve heard of them. The worldwide recognition we gained from the partnership helped us reach millions of kids, but as we grew, we made the call to refocus on our main goal of learning through play. So, we discontinued our licensed products and introduced our Sphero educational robots.
Beginning October 1, 2021 the compatible apps for these legacy products will no longer be available for download. Purchases made from any third-party retailers are not covered by Sphero’s warranty.
Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Robot
Over one million sold! The Sphero BB-8 Droid was the first app-enabled Star Wars robot toy coming from our partnership with Disney. A replica of the BB-8 droid that appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its sequels, Sphero BB-8 could explore on its own, show a range of expressions, and display holographic recordings. Though we no longer support this product, Sphero BB-8 still rolls on in our hearts. You can keep the fun going with Sphero BOLT. Spark your creativity!
While BB-8 is a legacy product, users can use our Sphero Edu app to program Sphero BB-8 robot and expand its capabilities.
Sphero Star Wars R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid
This is the droid you’re looking for. Users could connect the iconic Star Wars droid to their smart device, using Sphero R2-D2 to navigate the real world and explore holographic environments like the Millennium Falcon. Equipped with an integrated speaker system and colorful LEDs, Sphero R2-D2 reacted to Star Wars films, too. While we no longer offer Sphero R2-D2, Sphero RVR is a mobile robot that you can still drive to a galaxy far, far away.
While R2-D2 is a legacy product, users can use our Sphero Edu app to program Sphero R2-D2 robot and expand its capabilities.
