sphero 2.0 arrived to our house at a great time. We had some pressing issues happening in our household. My husband and myself had our plates full and we simply could not entertained our kids entertained while we were busy making phone calls to insurance companies or addressing some issues that we needed to deal with right away. Frankly, the kids are starting to get tired of playing on their tablets. So, the sphero 2.0 was a fun new toy for them to check out.
As a family, we tried ColorGrab and SpaceParty! and we thought that the SpaceParty was a lot of fun. Although we could have played the game without the sphero, but we thought that using it made it more entertaining. The only problem with us using it as for family game night is that our 3 year isn't ready to play most of the games, so there was a lot of frustration on his part. On the other hand, when our daughter had her friends over for a sleepover, she played some games using the sphero with her friends, and the girls just loved it.
After playing and testing out sphero for a few days, the kids are in love with their new toy. I will have to admit that there was some fighting between my kids on who should be able to play first and if every person got to play with it as long as the other person does. To make things easier on us, we have allowed our little guy to practice/play on his own (right before he goes to bed) so that he will be ready for our next family game night.
