What a great little gadget
I bought this for my grandson - always moans about not getting much for his birthday being so close to Christmas so saw this and got it for him and its great. Runs with his iPad and has a patrol mode where BB-8 goes off and does his own thing around the house - the cat thinks its most curious. It just fires up when you star the app and shuts down when you close it. Hours of fund don't think I'll give it to my grandson -well maybe I will I know he will enjoy it too.
