I have a small dog that could easily snatch sphero and refuse to share this wonderful toy. How tough is the exoskeleton? I wouldn't want Sphero to suffer an imminent end.
Hi Steve and Sandra,
Sphero has a tough, high-impact polycarbonate shell. That said, we don't encourage allowing the family pooch to chew on him as he is a complex electronic device. Most of our team at Orbotix are pet owners and have found, whether dog or cat, that the pets absolutely love Sphero and have a blast. We are, however, careful to rescue him from overly rough play, or from a good chewing.
Thanks for your question!
My Chihuahua can't get his mouth around it but is having a blast trying to figure this strange ball out. He gets confused/intrigued since it doesn't work like a ball is 'supposed" to work. Only downside I noticed is that I think he manages to confuse sphero enough so the aim is off.
