I was really excited to recive this product in the mail. I had watched all the videos related to it and thought Sphero was a very cute toy. I opened it right away and started to hook it up to an iPad. Once the initial fun wore off I began to realize that Sphero seemed very fragile, completely unlike the adds specifily it as having an "opaque, high-impact polycarbonate shell on the outside". The shell which I thought was more murky, translucenty color felt very thin and the built in light inside only shone through to the outside in a few places. And to tell you the truth you had to realign Sphero's "tail-light" many times over the course of the time I played with it. Overall I am displeased with this little robot. This would be a pretty cool toy if only the price would come down ALOT, somewhere in the range of a lower-end, remote controlled helicopter. This item will be in the mail back tomorrow.
