Chill out like a Jedi this Father’s Day

BB8 Droid

In case it had escaped your notice, it is Father’s Day this weekend (17th June).

What do you get the dad that has everything?

Meet BB-8™ – the app-enabled Droid™ whose movements and personality are as authentic as they are advanced.

Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and perk up when you give voice commands.


BB-8 is more than a toy – it will be Dad’s companion and is perfect to sit next to him at his desk as can be charged using a USB port.


BB8’s head sits on top of his body and is held in place with a strong magnet. When charged, his head moves around the top of his body, just like his movements in the film.

After an initial three-hour charge on the induction base – a charging unit that looks like a display stand – the BB-8 is ready for a pairing with your iOS or Android controller of choice.

You control BB-8 using a simple on-screen joystick on your smart phone or tablet. This lets you steer the droid by moving the button within a circle and there is a speed boost button for temporary acceleration.

You can also watch your Droid explore autonomously or by voice command and for avid Star Wars fans, create and view holographic recordings – Hubby has made it say “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope“. BB8 even reacts to Star Wars films when they come on.

This is a really fun toy for Star Wars fan and Hubby loves playing with all it’s quirky features.

For the ultimate Star Wars fan, they can now channel their inner Obi Wan-Kenobi whilst controlling BB8 whilst chilling in their lounge wear with the Star WarsJedi Robe.

Made from super soft fleece material, this robe features oversized hood and sleeves and comes complete with belt and two handy front pockets. Available in the classic Jedi shade of brown, there is also detailing on the chest so you too can feel the force and learn the ways of the Jedi!

If Dad is more at home on the dark side, he can also get comfy with the Star WarsGalactic Robe. 

Made from super soft black fleece material, those wishing to align themselves with the Empire can do so in comfort and style!  An oversized hood and sleeves adds extra authenticity and the two front pockets are ideal for storing snacks, phones or light sabres!


Both robes are available now at Argos:

  4. I love the look of bb8 but I’m not sure my hubby would get near him with our son around. The robes look great too. I’d consider one for my hubby if we were still in the UK.
