Bring Star Wars into Your Home with this Voice-Controlled R2-D2 Droid!


If you’re doing your best to raise your geeky children the right way, odds are that you’ve gotten them invested in Star Wars from a young age. After all, Star Wars is one of the most iconic geeky movie franchises of all time, and it is perfectly suitable for your young’ns.

If you have kids that want the force to be with them at all times, then one of the coolest toys you can get them from a galaxy far, far away is this new responsive, voice-commanded R2-D2 droid from Think Geek, one of the best companies selling officially licensed Star Wars Products!

R2-D2 Interactive Astromech Droid

We can’t guarantee that this R2-D2 droid will have the ability to escape from the Death Star or survive a bunch of explosions and Stormtrooper fire, but this little droid can do a lot of the things the R2-D2 in the movies can do.

This R2-D2 will follow your voice commands – over 40 of them, including a few hidden ones you have to figure out – and will flicker lights, make beeping noises, rotate his head, and move about in response to your commands. If you ask this intelligent little droid questions, he’ll respond in the appropriate manner (given it’s a programmed command) through beeps and movements. Ask him about certain Star Wars characters, and he will have varied, hilarious reactions.

As far as Star Wars toys go, you can’t get anything much closer to the real deal than this R2-D2, since it is much easier to have a real-life droid in your home as opposed to, say, a real-life Luke Skywalker. This R2-D2 can do things straight out of the movie too; for example, if you ask nicely, he might even project a message from everyone’s favorite galactic princess up on the wall of your home.

In addition to the Star Wars-specific stuff this droid can do, he will also take part in more mundane activities you might want a robot to handle. For example, you can program set routes for your R2-D2 to travel, and then watch as he navigates his way through your kitchen and living room. You can also program him to keep watch over your room, making sure Jawas and Stormtroopers alike stay out. R2-D2 has got you covered no matter what you need.

If you want to make your kid’s next birthday a memorable one, you can’t get him or her anything much cooler than a fully functional R2-D2 droid.

So head over to Think Geek and find the droid you ARE looking for right now!
