Thomas M. Via is the CEO of Brookstone and I got to chat with him about why BB-8 will be one of the most looked after toys this holiday season. For those of you that don’t know, BB-8 is the new droid in the upcoming Star Wars movie. This new toy from Sphero recreates the droid in afunway by giving fans the power to control it with their phones (Android and iOS). This is a must have for any Star Wars fan ofanyage. You can get your Sphero BB-8 now at Brookstone.com or Brookstone stores.
