The love of all things Star Wars is almost a rite of passage for boys. As the mother of a nearly six year old entrenched in the Star Wars phase, I offer these gift ideas for the young Star Wars fan on your (or Santa’s) Christmas list.
This frog habitat would be an interesting gift for a young padawan-nabe! Watch tadpoles become a frogs with this fun aquarium featuring Yoda on his home planet. This aquatic gift is appropriate for children 6 and older and retails for approximately $30.00 at Amazon.com.
Mimobots: Their Favorite Character As a Flash Drive
Whether their favorite character is Han Solo from the old Star Wars movies or Captain Rex from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Mimobot has a flash drive for just about anyone. These designer flash drives are collectible and some are part of a limited run of 500. Priced at about $40-$45, these would make a great stocking stuffer for a young Star Wars fan (or a big one, for that matter.)
Star Wars Lego Watch
For about $25, your young Star Wars fan can have the best of both worlds: a Star Wars Lego toy in the form of a watch. Zappos has several models, including a Darth Vader, C3PO, Luke, R2D2 and more. Better yet, these watches are not digital, but instead have a face and hands. Any of these would be great for stockings or for wrapping as a gift for under the tree.
Trick out their DS with Star Wars accessories
If your young Star Wars fan already owns a DS, consider getting him or her a packet of light saber styluses. These are a cheap gift and can be found at Best Buy, Game Stop and other retailers for under $10. The pack of 3 contains a red, blue and green styluses. Toys R Us sells Star Wars: The Clone Wars sleeves fitting a DS/DSi for about $15, which would complete the themed look of their DS.
Star Wars Trouble
Play Trouble with a twist and buy your little one a Star Wars Trouble game from Think Geek. Race around the board game as a Star Wars: The Clone Wars character to win. Priced at $23, this game is a bit more expensive than the standard board game, but the pop-o-matic will make R2D2 noises, making the game a fun and quirky gift.
What I love most about these gifts are their affordability, with the Mimobot being the most expensive item on this Star Wars gift idea list. The smaller sized gifts would be perfect for a Star Wars themed stocking. Order now to ensure delivery before Christmas.
