Best Black Friday Deals for Sphero
Looking for a good deal on a Sphero this Black Friday? We are keeping our eyes out for you this 2020 holiday season for the best deals.
Spheros are my favorite toy for getting started with programming!
Rather you are looking at one of the classic Spheros or a BB-8 Droid; this is the coding robot for kids that we recommend this 2020 holiday season. It’s fun, engaging, and a great way to start learning to code with their Sphero Edu.
Sphero activities for the kids are endless. This is a toy that doesn’t get old, which is why I love it so much.
STEM Education Guide is keeping you updated in real-time with the best deals for Black Friday STEM toys.
Now, the next question is, which Sphero should you buy?
We’ll review each Sphero, so you know exactly which to purchase this Black Friday (and snag the best deal.)
Okay, let’s check them out!
Best Deals for the Classic Sphero Products
The Sphero Mini is the best Sphero on a budget, but it gets even better this Black Friday.
The Sphero Mini + Activity Kit is one of Amazon’s flash deals for the 2020 Black Friday week.
You get the same educational benefits with the Sphero Mini – it’s simply “fun-sized” and a fun price! The Sphero Mini is over half the price of the SPRK+ model.
The Sphero Mini also has a “Face Drive” mode. You use your phone to drive your Sphero with your head. A nod to turn, an expression for braking. It’s certainly a fun one to watch!
The activity kit includes 55 pieces, including bowling pins, cones, construction sets, and activity cards. (And of course, the Sphero Mini is included in this deal as well.)
Sphero Bolt is the most expensive of these three classics.
Program this rollable robot. And as an extra bonus, program the LED matrix too.
You can do same games and programming activities, but this might be an extra special gift for a student curious about the digital arts.
Sphero has also discounted the RVR for Black Friday this year. You can get the RVR on Amazon during Black Friday week.
The RVR is the most customizable Sphero available. If you’re also interested in learning more about robotics hardware, this is the bot for you.
RVR’s customizable expansion plate is built to work with other hardware, including Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and Sphero’s own littleBits. The battery pack on RVR will get this guy moving, plus provide enough juice to any customizable components you add.
The best part? You can drive this guy just about anywhere.
Next up, let’s look at the classics. While these aren’t discounted as much for Black Friday, I want to make sure you know your options for the different Sphero’s available.
The Sphero SPRK+ is an upgrade from the original. But it’s the same size and classic shape. The focus of this model is certainly on the educational side of a Sphero. (However, remember every Sphero can be programmed!)
Sphero’s are great ways to introduce your children to programming. Through the app, you can program your Sphero to complete e obstacle courses, program them to dance, hide them under a hat for a fun prank, and a LOT more.
Plus, over 30 apps work with the Sphero, so if you look at the Sphero and think that it is a remote control toy that is going to get boring after a few days, that is a mistake!
Oh, the Sphero SPRK+ is also scratch proof, waterproof, and shockproof. So if you are looking at a Sphero, the games and educational side, get the SPRK+ model. It is going to be the most versatile for all of the programs you can write for it.
Black Friday Deals for the Star War’s Series Sphero
Last year, you were looking at paying more for Sphero’s fun Star Wars model. This year, they are cutting the cost – big time! This is the big Black Friday Deal for Sphero this year!
This was a new addition last year to the Sphero family line up two years ago. But the R2-D2 Sphero Droid is a hot STEM toy to have this year, too – especially for the Star Wars fans out there.
This droid is programmable and adventure-packed.
