Interactive R2D2 – the Star Wars Astromech Droid

The interactive R2D2 robot from Hasbro is a really popular toy or collectors item for Star Wars fans and robot fans in their own right.

R2D2 stands around 15 inches tall and has a lot of functions to explore – some are even secret and you can spend hours trying to work them out.

A voice-activated robot? Or a drinks holder?  How about both?!



I’m not even a Star Wars fan but the more I see of this guy the more I want one!

After much research it would seem there is the opinon that R2D2 doesn’t always recognise some of the voice commands, but this actually adds to his character.  Somehow this guy manages to exude personality, and we all have our off days where we just don’t want to do anything right?!  He will work on carpet but probably is most reliable on a hard surface.

See him dance! He’s so cute!

Can we buy it on another site than Amazon and ebay or is it too late?

I’ve had a look and don’t see any better options than Amazon or Ebay, sorry.
