As far as hubby and the kids are concerned, no holiday gift guide would ever be complete without a selection of Star Wars toys. Hubby still gets Star Wars figures for Christmas every year, and the kids have inherited his love for the 38-year-old franchise. This year in particular demands a Star Wars mini toy guide! We’re all excited for the release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens (some of us more than others), and hubby has our tickets ready for opening night. In celebration, here’s a look at the coolest Star Wars toys from Hasbro this holiday season, just in time for the event of the year!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Battle Action Millennium Falcon
Imagine recreating epic battles from Star Wars: The Force Awakens with this Battle Action Millennium Falcon vehicle! Trust me, this is the ultimate toy for any young Star Wars fan. It’s an impressive size yet still light enough for the kids to fly around. It comes with lots of play features like a pop-up Nerf cannon, pop-up gun turrets, secret storage compartments, and cool light up and sound effects (requires 2 AA batteries). There’s even a switch on the bottom that automatically triggers take off sounds when you lift the ship off the ground.
The top panel lifts off and transforms into a playset for your standard size 3.75″ Star Wars figures. The Millenium Falcon comes with Chewbacca, Finn, and BB-8, and the figures fit nicely into both the cockpit and the playset.
For those who are sticklers for these kinds of things, this version has a rectangular radar dish to make it accurate to The Force Awakens movie (the round radar dish having been broken off in Return of the Jedi).
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Remote Control BB-8
BB-8 is the spherical, loyal Astromech Droid of the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, and this season’s most popular toy! The Star Wars: The Force Awaken Remote Control BB-8 figure rolls in any direction and makes expressive droid sounds as you direct him to your next adventure with the remote.
Give him a shake to wake him up, and his ingratiating whistles and chirps invite everyone to play. BB-8 rolls in whatever direction he’s looking. One pad on the remote control moves him forwards and backwards, and the other turns his head. BB-8 himself takes 4 AA batteries, and the remote needs 2 AAA batteries (not included).
My girls, Tee in particular, have been enamoured with BB-8 (or Snowman Droid, as Tee has dubbed him) since their first glimpse of this cute robot. I know they will be over the moon to discover this little guy under the tree this year!

Star Wars The Black Series Kylo Ren Force FX Deluxe Lightsaber
