I remember the first time I watched Star Wars™. I was 16 years old and an ex-boyfriend convinced me that they were “the best films EVER!” As a
dedicated obsessive Lord of the Rings fan, I thought this was quite the statement, and agreed to watch the original three films with him.
What did I think?
I absolutely LOVED them! The action, the awesomeness of Princess Leia, young Harrison Ford, space, explosions, insane creatures! What more can you want from a film series really?!
Our two munchkins are still too little to watch Star Wars™, but I can’t wait for the time that we can sit down as a family and have a Star Wars™ Marathon. Especially as there will be even more of the films by then!
And their littleness didn’t stop me dressing H-Bear up as an Ewok when he was teeny… (too much cute!)
If you live in a family of Star Wars™ fans, and are desperately looking for exciting Star Wars™ toys for Christmas then pop over to the Thinkway Toys website. They have an awesome collection!
I love the look of the U-Command Interactive BB-8 (from Episode VII – The Force Awakens) toy:
It comes with a dual-joystick infrared remote control to command BB-8 to move in all directions – forward, reverse, turn left or turn right, plus rolling and spinning action.
BB-8 has over 20 original droid-speak phrases, plus special preprogrammed actions with different moods. What’s more, BB-8 makes different sound effects while has head moves, and a voice activated feature allows you to interact with him via a built-in microphone.
The R2D2 toy also looks pretty amazing. It responds to pre-programmed instructions via the remote control, walking in all directions. Not only that but it has original movie sound effects and moves its head! I want one for myself…!
