There are so many games you can play with Sphero 2.0. One of my favorite is golf. Just set up the “hole” in your house by using a cup, bowl or just about anything and Sphero 2.0 will be the golf ball you “hit.” It is so much fun that even a non-golfer like me loves it, but even those golfing dads will undoubtedly have a blast with this game.
The most innovative golf game now has better accuracy, improved course creation, and a new practice mode. Using simple, intuitive controls, you create a “hole” and then “hit” Sphero with a flick of a finger or a swing of your smartphone. Adjust your aim with simple 2-finger gestures. All that’s missing now is a caddy.
Kids will undoubtedly love the Sphero Pet App/Game.
It’s easy to play with your pet using the Sphero robotic ball. With Sphero Pet, drive Sphero with joystick or tilt mode. Sphero can change colors, spin wildly, shake, flip, and move in any direction you want, making it the ultimate pet toy that you control.
Choose different interface themes that include Dog and Cat styles!
Another awesome game is Color Grab. What I love about Color Grab is that you can play it with your friends or family as it is a multiplayer game.
Get ready to test your speed with the first multiplayer tabletop game for Sphero. Sphero flashes different colors and you must pick him up at the right time to earn points. Set point goals, select levels of difficulty, and compete against friends and the clock to see who has the best reflexes. Did we mention there’s a crazy rabbit?
I love how Sphero 2.0 is easy to customize with a Nubby, which is a cover for Sphero 2.0 so it can “4 x 4” or by simply choosing your favorite color for your Sphero. You also name your Sphero and we have two in our house, one is named Blinky and the other is Firework.
Orbotix, the maker of Sphero, also has an awesome SPRK Education Program designed for kids that teaches the basics of programming.
We create connected toys – but that’s not all. By fusing technology with robotics, our toys are teaching and inspiring tomorrow’s inventors and innovators.

We created the SPRK program because we believe play is a powerful teacher. Whether you’re an educator or a parent, SPRK lessons will teach kids the basic concepts of programming, robotics, and math.
