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.
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.
