Create Your Own Star Wars Droid

Christmas is coming, and so is a period of droid-inspired mania, with the soon-to-be released Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in theaters December 15.

The robotic characters in the Star Wars franchise are among the most beloved film characters ever. So why not welcome one into your home…one you build yourself. 

This robotics kit uses STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) curriculum to help even a child as young as 8 create a custom R2 unit. This unique gift comes with over 30 components that bring your very own droid creation to life. A free iOS/Android app lets you control the droid’s direction, program its movements, and engage in 16 interactive missions. You can even get creative with household objects to construct a customized droid of your own. 

Looking for another unique gift to bring Star Wars into your home? This kitchen timer, modeled after BB-8, imparts intergalactic whimsy onto your countertops. It keeps up to 60-minutes of time in one-minute intervals  with a simple twist of the astromech droid’s head.

In Star Wars, “The Force” is a source of energy in the universe. We appreciate caffeine as another universal source of energy. Get “The Force” on your side every morning with this coffee press modeled after R2-D2. It brews 32 oz. of flavorful coffee inside a durable borosilicate glass body. Unlike his film counterpart, this R2 unit doesn’t conceal stolen Death Star plans, but instead houses a stainless steel plunger and filter to create a Jedi-worthy cup of joe.
