Ten years ago when we were planning my wedding my husband was fairly insistent on one thing that he wanted something from his favourite movie in our wedding plans. By favourite movie, I mean one that we have 6 copies of the same one in different formats because according to him they have slight variations. This movie was Star Wars and we did indeed have something from the movie in our wedding. I walked back down the aisle to one of the fabulous arrangements from The Empire Strikes Back.
When the kids arrived his one hope was that he would have someone to enjoy this experience with him. At first, it looked highly unlikely! J cried the whole way through the first time we sat down on a Sunday afternoon to watch it. However, now 7 years later he is just as keen on them as my husband.
Star Wars toys are something that both of them love – my husband still has his 1980’s originals which have been passed down to J. And, we have added to it with bits from the new movies, cartoon series. Thinkway toys have got two that both of them are itching to add to their collections.
Star Wars U-Command BB8
If there was a droid that stole our hearts last Christmas it was BB8 – in fact it’s the thing I’m most looking forward to seeing in 2018 is this little guy returning in Episode IX. The Star Wars U-Command BB8 is interactive, can be programmed and controlled.
It measures 16” high and rolls, speaks and looks just like the original BB8 from the movie. Combined with the fact that is has different temperaments and noises it’s just like having your own BB8 at home.
Star Wars Interactive R2D2 Robotic Droid
Whereas my son loves BB8, my husband is old school and of all of the droids throughout R2D2 is his favourite. The Star Wars Interactive R2D2 Robotic Droid is just like the original, it has the same sound effects that you will instantly recognise and with a remote control you can programme him to do over 1000 different actions.
Standing at 40cm tall you actually get a feel for having a real R2D2 with you and you with a projection facility you can even see Princess Leia™ I your own home (my favourite character from the whole series).
