Take a peek at our Star Wars D-O Droid Remote Control Toy Review. While fans wait for the release of Baby Yoda toys, the new D-O Droid toys based on the droid, D-O, who stars in the new Rise of Skywalker movie, make great Star Wars themed holiday gifting options.
Should you buy the D-O Droid Remote Control Toy ?
D-O is super cute and is sure to be popular just like BB8 as D-O is part of the Resistance efforts in the Rise of Skywalker. For fans that want a tech gift and like remote control toys, the D-O Droid Remote Control Toy from Hasbro fits the bill.
If you can grab D-O on sale, it’s definitely worth it. Even when not using the remote control features, the D-O droid looks cool as part of your Star Wars toy collection on display in a bookshelf, on a table, etc.
Star Wars D-O Droid Remote Control Toy Review
The price of any remote control toy is always higher than a simple figure but for kids 5+ including your tweens, teens, or any adult Star Wars fans, the D-O Droid remote control toy is a more interactive and cool option.
Toddlers love to chase after remote toys! My pet cat, Stitch also adores remote control toys. Stitch our cat was captivated by this D-O droid remote control toy bopping around my kitchen.
- Bobble Head
- Droid like sounds
- Remote Control that’s easy to use
- D-O spins, makes circles, and can move left right or forward and backward
- D-O does full 360 spins too!
Here’s the other side of the droid. It’s basically the same but a bit different.
Star Wars D-O Droid Remote Control Toy Video Review
Here’s a full clip with a demo from my 12 year old son showing how easy it is to use the remote control. He describes how to easily control the remote with the triggers to do spins, circles and more!
Does the D-O Droid Remote Control need batteries?
Yes! You’ll need 4 AA batteries inside the Droid. The remote control takes 2 AAA batteries. Batteries are not included so if you are giving this as a holiday or birthday gift, consider also including batteries so your kiddo can immediately start playing with D-O.
Realistic Looking D-O Droid
You’ll notice D-O even has little “dents” intentionally in the produce along with some discoloration. This makes D-O look like the real thing from the Rise of the Skywalker movie. Smart!
Check out my D-O Remote Control Droid Toy Review photos above….. Next, you can compare it to the character poster from Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. You can see the toy looks pretty realistic to the droid in the film with the dents and dirt!

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER opens in U.S. theaters on December 20.
Looks like D-O and BB8 are definitely friendly with each other! I’m anxious to see what role both droids will play in helping the Resistance in the Rise of Skywalker.
Fans absolutely went nuts for BB8 so I wonder if people will find D-O just as adorable and appealing. What do you think?
Here’s an official scene photo from the Rise of Skywalker featuring both BB8 and D-O droids together hanging out.
