Jennifer Watts

2nd November 2017

By Jennifer Watts

Mum, Wife, Gadget Lover & Foodie


I recently became interested in Sphero thanks to their Marvel and Pixar tie-ins, but the Sphero Mini is the first non-themed Sphero I’ve purchased. It’s so affordable that I figured it didn’t matter too much whether it was good or not, but I’m pleased to say it’s been excellent and the whole family has already had hours of fun with this. I think Sphero have got the mix of games and coding absolutely spot on.

Appearance & Features

The Sphero Mini is so cute! It’s tiny, probably about the size of a ping pong ball and it weighs less than 50 grams! It’s a bit like a smaller, opaque version of the SPRK+ (ie. you can’t see the robotics inside). When I came to purchase the Mini I actually hesitated because I wasn’t sure between the Mini and the SPRK+. Technically, the SPRK+ is better — it’s got better range (30m compared to the Mini’s 10), it’s faster (travels at 4.5 mph compared to the Mini’s 2.2 mph), and it works on carpet (the Mini says it can but in my experience it doesn’t!), but the SPRK+ is a bit too coding-focused for me. With the Sphero Mini you get the best of both games and coding, and the kids absolutely love it because there are so many games to play. It’s the perfect blend of fun and education. I think I definitely made the right decision.

Playing with the Sphero Mini

As with most robotic toys, you need to download the free app to start playing. The app works on both iOS and Android, but doesn’t work on Kindle or Chrome which is a shame because the more advanced app, the Sphero Edu which is used for the coding aspect, does work on all four operating systems. Once you have the app installed there are loads to things to do. My kids love setting up the traffic cones and bowling pins that are included in the kit and tilting their heads to move the ball around and try to either knock over the obstacles or navigate around them. I like using the ball as a controller to play the in-app games (there’s one that’s a bit like the old Space Invaders), and my husband likes the Javascript coding.

Any Downsides?

I think the Sphero Mini is excellent so I don’t really have too many negative things to say. However, I will say that the battery isn’t as good as I hoped. I get that such a small robot needs a small battery, but 45 minutes of play isn’t really enough unfortunately. Also, bluetooth is the only connectivity option. I probably would have paid more for a WiFi option which would have given us a much better range.

Worth It?/

Completely worth it. For such a low price you get an absolute tonne for your money and I think this is probably the kids’ favourite toy at the moment, they use it all the time. Deciding to buy this is the easy part, deciding what colour is the hard part! There’s 5 different colours to choose from (blue, green, orange, pink, and white), but the good news is you can buy the shells separately so if you can’t decide you can just buy all 5! We have two of the shells and they are very quick and easy to change as desired.

    LEGO Fantastic Beasts 75952

    As with any LEGO toy, the LEGO Fantastic Beasts Newt's Case of Magical Creatures set has been made to the utmost quality. Whoever designed this is clearly a fan. Every detail is magnificent. I especially love the Muggle Worthy button and the golden hinges.
