Sphero is commemorating Cyber Monday in the same manner in which it celebrated Black Friday – by discounting one of its most popular offerings on Amazon. On this occasion, the company slashed the price of its flagship product, the R2-D2 toy droid from Star Wars. As of today, you're able to purchase the Sphero R2-D2 for $119.99, nearly $60 down its original price tag. Needless to say, this is the lowest price that was ever attached to the toy droid and is unlikely to be beaten anytime soon.
As for what you're getting for your money, the Sphero R2-D2 is a tiny replica of the "real" Star Wars droid that acts and sounds like the same iconic robot that you remember from your childhood. Being a contemporary toy, it comes with a dedicated companion app for Android and iOS devices that you can use to control it and watch exclusive Star Wars videos, in addition to learning more about the sci-fi universe envisioned by George Lucas many decades ago. In overall, this is a toy that every kid will love and one that also comes with a fairly large dose of nostalgia attached to it.
Sphero's R2-D2 is compatible with other toys from the company's lineup and can interact with them in an authentic manner, which is something you'd want to keep in mind if you're planning on starting a new Star Wars droid collection. Unsurprisingly, now would be a pretty good time to do so, with Sphero's BB-9E also being treated to an even bigger discount from the company last week, with that particular offer still being valid as of Monday afternoon PST. Sphero didn't specify how long will its new sale last but don't count on it being live for more than a few days tops, especially since the firm's stock may not even survive Cyber Week.
