The BB-8 Star Wars Toy is Definitely the Droid You're Looking For

When the trailer for Episode VII: The Force Awakens was finally unveiled, everyone immediately took notice of—and fell in love with—the soccer ball-shaped BB-8 robot. It seems like the little droid has arrived to give R2-D2 a roll for his money (yeah, that’s right, roll), especially now that there’s already a miniature toy version out there.

Though a lot of Star Wars gadgets and toys (including a Millennium Falcon drone) have been made officially available today (which is known as Force Friday), this little fella is without a doubt the winner. Designed by robotics company Sphero, the BB-8 is—let’s face it—adorable. Controlled by an app, the droid’s head balances on the top of a rotating ball so it can zoom all over the place without tipping over.
