BB8 Wobbly Toy

Introduction: BB8 Wobbly Toy

About: I am a hobist with lots of hobies from carpentry to mechanics. There is hardly any thing that i am not interested in.

Many BB8 are available on the net. I made this simplest one that really works. By work what I really mean is stand by itself.

Step 1: Materials

Materials needed

Foam balls for the body and the head

Nut from an old spare

Paint brush


Colors to make the BB8 classy

2 part polymer clay

Step 2: Make the Head

Cut the smaller foam ball to make the head.

Cut a section and carve the corner to a tilt.

Step 3: Attach the Head to the Body

Glue the head to the body. You may have to cut a small section on the body to get a flat surface. Let it dry.

Step 4: Add Magic to Make Him Stand

Find the center at the bottom. Mark a circle which can hold the nut. Carve the place for the nut to adjust properly. Flush in the nut. use some glue if the hole is large and the nut tries to fall over.

Step 5: Cove Up

Mis small amount if the polymer clay and fill the hole and cover the nut and let it dry. Sand the place to make it look even if required.

Step 6: Make the Antenna

Find something to make the antenna. I used the bottom of the paint brush for the antenna. Poke the antenna in place and glue it properly.

Step 7: You Are Done

Your desktop BB8 wobbly toy is ready. Let everything dry properly. Color it as you like and enjoy.
