As such it has been neglected a bit by the makers of Sphero, who seem to favour it's bigger, beefier cousins ie Bolt, SPRK and Sphero 1 and 2.
If you have hard floors and marble like we do. The thin exterior shell will break with worrying ease. Exposing the more delicate robotic interior ball.
The shell is not screwed securely. It's held together by a sort of magnetic connection.
Thankfully as of writing, we haven't yet suffered a catastrophic failure. Though I am stuck between the figurative rock and a hard place.
On the plus side, You have access to the entire online App based platform that all the Spheros balls do. Except for the LED lights coding program, that the Sphero BOLT does, as this ball isn't compatible with it being somewhat limited by the absence of said lights.
Though it does have a more of all over internal 'glow' light that you can control - impressively: throughout the entire spectrum of the colour wheel.
At the time of writing, there are no rubberised covers designed for the Sphero Mini - which is essentially what this one is. So in essence, as of writing, my job is to urge our young, enthused, tech savvy recipients to avoid, by aid of virtually programming, flinging this between a rock. And a hard place.
Kids had hours of fun programming the ball to move around the house without hitting objects scattered around the floor.
It's hard to say anything about its durability, as I've only had it a month, however I doubt it would last long after a few drops.
Great product and suitable for both young and old.
