      Product information
      Get your very own droid companion with the authentic Sphero BB-8 Droid.

      This is the Droid™ you're looking for


      The Sphero BB8 is your personal robot companion that moves just like the lovable droid first seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. BB-8 can explore your home autonomously, or you can take the lead and control him from your smartphone or tablet.

      Simply download the app to an Android or iOS mobile device to get started. The app includes a quick guide to get you up and rolling in seconds, so don't worry if BB-8 is the first droid you've owned.

      The app gives you plenty of options to keep your new companion occupied: you can guide BB-8 around your home, send it out on patrol and ask it to hide in case of danger.

      Authentic personality


      BB-8's personality and actions evolve as it spends more time with you. As BB-8 patrols your home it makes a map of its route, noting dangers it comes across (a chair leg, the cat's bed, storm troopers etc) and avoids them in the future.

      BB-8 perks up and shows a range of emotions and expressions when you give voice commands - it gets scared when you ask it to hide and shows excitement when you wake it up from charge.

      Holographic messaging


      What's a droid without a holoprojector? BB-8 can play holographic messages recorded using the front-facing camera on your smartphone or tablet. When you press play, just point the camera at BB-8 to see your message as a hologram on your device's screen.

      Control your very own Droid with Star Wars Sphero BB-8.

      Availability checker

      How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
      • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
      To use our Availability Checker, simply:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass

      Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

      Order online and collect in store

      Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
      Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

      Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket
