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 have heard of them. The worldwide recognition we gained from the partnership helped us reach millions of kids, but as we grew, we discovered an important place for our robots in classrooms around the world.

Several years ago, we transitioned our business to STEM education so we could refocus on our mission to inspire the creators of tomorrow through play-based learning. Through this process, we discontinued all of our licensed products and introduced our own collection of Sphero programmable robots and design-and-build systems to encourage exploration, imagination, and perseverance through STEAM, robotics, and computer science.

As of October 1, 2021 the compatible apps for these legacy products are no longer be available for download. Purchases made from any third-party retailers are not covered by Sphero’s warranty.

Sphero BB-8 Star Wars coding robot.

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 R2D2 coding robot for kids.

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.
