The Force Awakens Introduces New Products For Kids
I’m sure at some point every parent who loves Star Wars wishes that they could use the Force to put their child to sleep. The Force Awakens premiered this week in our hometown of Los Angeles and the town was buzzing with excitement. The movie introduced new characters, plots and was the best present a Star Wars fan could ask this holiday season.
Take that Elf on The Shelf.
New Star Wars Products For Kids
On the Kinnecting App we saw new Star Wars products dominate the trending category. New characters meant new action figures, clocks, tableware – even sippy cups. Here is a short list of new Star Wars products that have parents talking.
The Force Awakens introduces a host of new characters, including the adventurous droid BB-8, Kylo Ren, Rey and Finn – this figurine play set which is suitable for kids and collectors is a must have. You can’t actually act out an entire Star Wars scene, by yourself, in the dark with a flash light if you don’t have these. Well, actually you could, but it wouldn’t be much fun.
The stars of this set have to be the Kylo Ren and the Captain Phasma…..excellent detail on them and Phasma really shines! If you love Star Wars this is a no brainer!
Who doesn’t want to eat on the face of a Storm Trooper. Peas, broccoli, string beans. It’s fight just getting them to eat – let alone trying to win against the Dark Side. This 3-piece mealtime set includes a plate, bowl and tumbler (and yes it’s BPA free!). If you can stop your little ones from using their fork as a light saber and their bowl as a mask, you’ll be good to go. Move over Elsa and Anna, the Force Awakens.
This is THE guide to the characters, droids, aliens, and creatures of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Beautiful photography and clear, authoritative text by Lucasfilm insider Pablo Hidalgo names and explains all the details of costumes, weapons, and accessories. Includes three exclusive, specially commissioned cutaway models. Which parent doesn’t want their kids to sit there, for hours, asking their them “Hey, hey, hey, hey, Dad, Mom, what’s this do? And this? Cool…. ”
That’s right, after they identified an new speeder in the guide above, they’re going to want LEGOs. But this LEGO is awesome – it’s a unique looking speeder, the likes of which we haven’t seen before. Specifically this kit has a beautiful dark red tone – which really pops against all those other gray ships synonymous with LEGO and spaceships. The kit itself requires a bit of The Force to help open up the sides of the speeder bike. It’s sturdy and a real beauty. Did we say beautful?
The set is really well built, well designed. I love the way design for the door and they way they open out. The color is so different from other Lego Star Wars, that’s another awesome detail.
By far the coolest product to come out of new Star Wars is this app enabled BB-8. When paired with your smart phone, BB-8 can be guided by you or recognize and react to your voice. When it’s feeling especially persnickety, it can even go off on it’s own to explore the the Star Wars galaxy. So, so, so very cool. It’s about the size of you hand, so as long as no Storm Troopers, in the form of a Roomba come around, there is fun to be had with this new product.
It’s super fun to direct and control BB-8 around your home for your friends, family, pets and other BB-8s! The downloadable app allows you to control BB-8 directly, listen to the cool sounds of BB-8, has a camera to record augmented reality messages and listens to voice commands.
