Our family was invited to view the new Star Wars toys that were released in conjuction with the movie, The Force Awakens during the Global Day of Play this past weekend. I have to say I was so impressed with these new toys and I think you will be too!
I think it is fair to say the favorite of the day was the STAR WARS BLADEBUILDERS JEDI MASTER LIGHTSABER( Approx. Retail Price: $49.99)The definitive LIGHTSABER of the BLADEBUILDERS system provides kids with the unique components needed to create 100+ combinations from their imagination. The JEDI MASTER LIGHTSABER comes with a main LIGHTSABER featuring lights and sounds, two independently-lit lightdaggers, expansion hilt, two elbow connectors, dual connector, and cross connector.
The kids had a blast battling with each other and making many combinations. ALthough the recommended age is 4 and up, my three year old hit her groove playing with this toy too.
Another version of an old classic Monopoly is perfect for family game night and will get the kids away from their electronic devices for a while too.
MONOPOLY: STAR WARS Edition Game (Ages 8 years & up/Players: 2-4/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/Available: September 2015) The classic buying, selling, and trading MONOPOLY game is headed to space just in time for the release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
