Anki's latest robot is the first home robot and designed not just to help around the house, but Vector can also be a great buddy. Unlike his fellow canned AI companions, Vector's thousands of movements are more lifelike and make him appear to be more than just a soulless home gadget. Vector is a lively little thing, even without commands he'll play and amuse himself which I think is like having a real live pet, the difference with pets is that you can talk to Vector, and he'll talks back with simple answers. I can conclude that Vector is just like a smart dog except he’s a robot and doesn’t eat. Oh, one more thing, he likes to be petted and always excited to welcome you home like a loyal pet!
Sphero Ollie is a combination of tech toy and an educational robot that can be controlled to do tricks or programmed from a tablet. The little robot encourages active play and gets kids solving engineering challenges without realizing how hard they're working and there's plenty of scope for coding. Sphero Ollie can go as fast as 14 MPH - faster than you can run. Ollie isn't a robot that you just control from the sofa. Kids will be up and down setting up challenges and tweaking courses. It's great for developing engineering skills too and building great necessary skills for kids that will enable them to go far in life!
One of the most fun ways to learn about coding is with the Sphero SPRK+. SPRK stands for Schools/Parents/Robots/Kids and turns all that robotic energy potential into a tool to teach coding skills for everyone. SPRK+ is far more than just a robot; it’s a coding buddy for everyone. It’s fun and doesn’t feel like “school” when the kids do their coding with the transparent ball through the path around our house. Overall, the SPRK+ is one of those great educational toys that genuinely makes learning fun, and a fun way to teach kid’s coding with a brilliant little transparent ball from Sphero SPRK+.

The Force Band is about the size of a small box of matches with a pretty wide, adjustable velcro strap made from silver fabric, and with a magnetic clasp at the end.

You or your child will need a compatible smartphone or tablet – iOS and Android are both supported. The app is pretty big, so you’ll need to make sure you have some free space on your phone. So, let your kids imagination run wild with the Sphero Star Wars Force Band!
