September 4 was Force Friday, the day that hundreds of all-new Star Wars toys were introduced around the world. Sure, there were plenty of blasters, lightsabers, costumes, action figures and epic Lego sets, but my pick for best toy is the BB-8 app-enabled droid.
Who’s BB-8? The newest member of the Star Wars family, BB-8 will make his big-screen debut on Dec. 17 in Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens.
We got the chance to test out one of the BB-8 toys, and made some videos of the process.
