“The entire family has enjoyed giving him various commands and in addition to the commands listed in the Command Guide, R2 has some advanced commands (sometimes known as Easter Eggs) built in that we found on the HASBRO website.”

“very well made, sophisticated toy”
By Dennis on November 24, 2005
“Voice activated R2 obeys over 40 commands. R2 dances, plays hide-n-seek. You hide, it seeks and can somehow distinguish between you and a lamp. There are even unexpected responses that will suprize you”
A note to consider…

“I learned one thing which is not written in the instructions. If there is more than one source of sound in the room (another person like grandma telling grandson how to make it work, TV, a playmate), R2D2 gets confused and won’t do anything.”
