Back when Jack was a baby, Charles bought a miniature lightsaber. Just the hilt, but it was made of metal, heavy, and basically a legit weapon. Which I suppose is the point, but remember…it was miniature. Maybe 5 inches long.
So when Jack was actually old enough to hold it (and he was drawn to it from a very young age…in fact, we would use it to entice him to crawl), it quickly became apparent that all he was going to do with it was hit himself in the head. Today, it sits on our mantel, and we’ve learned our lesson. Buy age-appropriate toys.
And that’s what I’m going to help you out with today. I have a list of the best Star Wars toys for pre-schoolers, and trust me when I say none of these are made of metal or have sharp edges!
- Hasbro sent us a Play-Doh Star Wars Millenium Falcon and I had to put it at the top of the list, becase you guys – each can of Play-Doh is the head of a Star Wars character. My four-year-old and my six-year-old have played with this toy, but it’s really for the younger crowd…your toddler will love it. PLAY-DOH!
- Star Wars Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon and Figures – R2D2, Chewie and Han Solo are all included in this fun playset, which also includes a Millennium Falcon. This has also been approved by both of my kids!
- Star Wars Phonics Boxed Set – These books are perfect for new readers or kids you’re trying to get interested in reading. We own these, and I was surprised at how educationally sound they are (sometimes “readers” like this are actually not very well-written or appropriate for a new reader, but these are great). They also include two workbooks.
- Lego Star Wars: The Yoga Chronicles DVD – The Yoda Chronicles are smart, funny, and super entertaining. And the kids love them too. 😉
- Disney Chewbacca Plush Toy – Need I say more?
- Darth Vader Cape and Mask – Because some pre-schoolers are definitely on the Dark Side.
- Talking R2D2 Plush Toy – Imagine how cute his little beeps must be!
- Hot Wheels Death Star Portable Playset – Hot Wheels AND the Death Star.
- Star Wars ABC Workbook – This is another book we own, and it’s another one that is way better than expected! You will love this!
- 12″ The Force Awakens Stormtrooper – This toy is nice and big…totally easy for little ones to play with!
We have so many favorite Star Wars toys, I’ll probably have to continue this post with a part two…but for now, this should get you started!
