I don’t know about you but I love it when my kids go against the grain, when they like things simply because they like them, not because everyone else does. My eldest girl LOVES superhero films and Star Wars (especially Star Wars), only one other girl in her friendship group vaguely likes Star Wars, the rest aren’t bothered at all. My nine year old couldn’t care less that she’s different to her friends, to be honest, I think it makes her like it even more! I love that about her and think it’s a great quality to have even if it’s just in something small like this.
When we went to Disneyland Paris at half term she couldn’t wait to get in line for Jedi Warrior training, and honestly you should have seen her face when Darth Vader came on stage and she realised she’d get the chance to fight him! It was priceless.
Of course with obsessions like this come the toys to match, like her sister she loves collecting things, though it’s not shopkins and tiny toys for her, she’s just started with Funko Pop (Harry Potter) and for Star Wars it’s Tsum Tsums.
Though if she got her way then the following toys would be her ultimate dream!
Remote control R2D2
This Star Wars™ interactive R2-D2™ Command R2-D2 responds to pre-programmed instructions via the remote control, moving in all directions as it makes original movie sound effects and moves its head.
And look there’s a BB8 one as well!
You can bring the adoroble astromech droid from Star Wars™ Episode VII – The Force Awakens to life with the U-Command Interactive BB-8. Use the dual-joystick infrared remote control to command BB-8 to move in all directions – forward, reverse, turn left or turn right, plus rolling and spinning action. BB-8 has over 20 original droid-speak phrases, plus special preprogrammed actions with different moods – happy, sad, excited, worried, scared and frustrated. What’s more, BB-8 makes different sound effects while has head moves, and a voice activated feature allows you to interact with him via a built-in microphone.
The U-Command Interactive BB-8 measures approximately 16-inches tall and comes with an instruction manual to help you get started on your Star Wars™ adventure.

My daughter has watched this ad countless times!
I can definitely see why she wants one (well, both of them really!) I guess we’ll have to wait and see what Father Christmas brings her.. 😉

What’s on the top of your kids’ dream Christmas list?
Would they love a BB8 or R2D2 of their very own?
This is a commissioned post BUT all opinions are our own and the toys are definitely at the top of my eldest daughter’s wishlist. You know me, I wouldn’t say it or promote it if it wasn’t true.
