The RC BB-8 is from the latest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, and although this came out back in 2015, the hype is showing no signs of dying down, especially for me! I thought BB-8 was so cute that I’ve been wanting a droid toy for ages, but could never really decide between the remote control BB-8 and the Sphero. Finally decided on the RC version and luckily I’ve been pretty happy with it so far!

Nice Design

I’d seen pictures of the droid online before I bought this, but I hadn’t seen the remote control, so I was really surprised when I opened the box. It’s not just some standard black box that could have been attached to any RC toy, some thought has definitely gone into this to make sure the remote matches the droid, not just in colour but in shape. I know this doesn’t affect how the toy works, but it just feels as if the two parts really fit well together as a set. It’s a sort of level of detail that I really haven’t seen too much of in modern toys, and this shows just how well made and cool the Hasbro BB-8 really is.

Chirp Chirp

The sound effects on this little droid are so cute! The first time I played with this I had my back door open and I’m sure my neighbours must have been wondering what was going on, but it’s just too cute to stop. The sounds are actually pretty true to the film which is nice, and BB-8 warbles away as he moves about. It would have been nice if BB-8 had lights on him too like the Sphero BB-8 toy, but I suppose this Hasbro RC BB-8 is a lot cheaper that the Sphero version, so you’ve got to expect to compromise on a few things.

Great for Kids

I noticed that this toy was designed for 5 and up and I was wondering whether a child that young would be able to get to grips with navigating and controlling an RC toy, but the controls are actually really simple. There’s just 2 buttons: one turns the head, and the other moves the droid backwards and forwards, but BB-8 will always move forwards in the direction his head is facing, so it means he can do some pretty complex-looking movements without the need for a complicated control panel. I think the Hasbro RC BB-8 is a really good alternative for kids who might find the Sphero BB-8, which you control via an app, a little too in depth and complicated. If your kids love Star Wars, this is a great present.

Control

The Hasbro RC BB-8 is pretty similar to other RC-style toys in that it’s obviously better to control on wooden or laminate surfaces, and it’s not that great on carpet. It works pretty well on an old, flat carpet I have at home, but tends to get stuck a lot on the newer, fluffier carpet. It would have been nice to have a ‘carpet’ setting - I don’t even know if that’s possible with these toys. But anyway, as long as you’ve got some sort of wood, tile, or laminate in your house then you shouldn’t have any issues with control.

A Quick Tip

If you’re getting this present for a child, just note that you’ll need a screwdriver to open the battery compartment on the droid - just a little tip to make sure you avoid tears on birthdays or Christmas!
