Just pair it with a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and enjoy a brand new gaming experience. Over 30 apps allow you to discover virtual-real world gaming. The games can be played in a single-player or in multiplayer mode. But that’s not all. The creators of Sphero made this robotic ball not only as a toy but also as a learning tool for children. Already successfully used by teachers in primary schools, the Sphero ball allows kids to learn principles of computer programming, math and science through free SPRK lessons.
One of the most amazing features about this toy is that it is pet proof. You can use it with your dogs and cats safely giving them and yourself a great time of fun. Your pets will most likely try to chase it or catch it. Though we should mention that some cats are a bit amused by this ball and not sure what to do with it.
This robotic ball is waterproof which means you can have lots of fun with it not only indoors but outside in the water as well. However although it can swim, its maneuverability in water is reduced so we would recommend to buy the nubby cover for it.
