This motorized replica of the headstrong little "droid" from the iconic Star Wars films responds to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways, and makes any home feel like it has been transported to a galaxy far, far away. R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands ("Turn around!," "Move forward two units!") and he plays games like tag, using an infrared sensor to search for people in a room. His sensor helps him follow behind you, or it can be set to detect motion, turning R2 into a room sentry that sounds an alarm when a secured area is invaded. R2's lights, swiveling dome top, and distinctive happy and sad sounds faithfully mimic the real thing, right down to his occasional "bad mood." (A simple command of, "R2, behave yourself!" snaps him out of it.) R2 can also replay sounds and dialog from Star Wars movies, answer yes-or-no questions, and dance while playing the famed cantina music. Requires four AA batteries and four D batteries. Minor assembly required. Ages 8 and up. 15" H x 7 1/2" W x 10 1/2" L. (6 lbs.)

I have a new Playmate!
By Feel like a kid again
from Rockaway, NJ
Well packed item. (It must have taken me 15 minutes to get him out of his little carton.). He comes pretty much fully assembled. There is a very thin, hard to see band around the torso of R2 that keeps the cargo doors closed for shipping purposes. Be sure to remove this or you will have difficulty removing the screw anchored battery door.My R2 operates like a dream. (I was concerned after reading some of the negative reviews.). His "maiden" voyage lasted about 30 minutes, during which he operated flawlessly. (I am so looking forward to "introducing" him to my new puppy.)Luckily the store near me was having an outstanding sale on batteries, so boy did I stock up. I must also confess that I am "fifty-something" and, having wanted an R2 for, like, FOREVER, bought him for myself. My inner-child is ecstatic!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The kid loves it
from Colorado Springs, CO
This droid is exciting to any Star Wars fan. It does everything as advertised. Kept the 10-11 year old entertained and says the best part is the "Do you remember" commands.

A Good Guard Sentry.
from Greensboro, N.C.
Use to Room Guard for Intruders while you are there or away. I would like to put a cameraon him. I need Electronic Diagram. He needs bumpersensors on him or proximity sensors so he will notbump into objects. I know this is a toy but ithas the ability to be so much more. I would pay twice as much for a new design like this. I lovethis little robot anyway.

Bought for 11 year old Star Wars fan and he loves it! Turns out his 7 year old sister loves it too and can't stop telling people about the amazing things R2-D2 dose. The entire family, mom, dad, and grandparents are amazed by it and all having fun with it.

What an incredible robot

My son has always wanted this robot. It took a long time to get and he is very happy with it. R2D2 does everything he is told to do. Very cute

By MIke the Photographer
from Hamilton, Ontario
The product quality is pretty good. It does as advertised. The major con of it is that when it is moving or if there is other noise, then Artoo won't hear the commands or mishears them and does something else.

Returning for exchange
from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I am returning my first purchase for an exchange because my first voice activated R2D2 was not responding to commands properly and always like I saw on youtube videos.
