Some parents hide candy from their kids. Others place parental controls on web pages, television channels and app privileges. Some parents even enjoy a glass (or three) of wine when the kids have retired for the night.
Every morning, after we’ve dropped our children off to school, my husband and I creep downstairs to the basement… clear a path in our storage room… and pull out our Star Wars deluxe animatronic figures from Thinkway Toys.
Exclusive to Toys R Us, these completely interactive, animatronic figures speak to the Star Wars fan in all of us. With dozens of points of articulation plus training and battle modes, they provide hours of role play fun (trust me, I’ve been there) and are eerily accurate thanks to digital data based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Introducing Kylo Ren. Hold his Lightsaber and wave it for incredible real time interaction with light and stereo battle sound effects. Raise his left arm and watch him come alive with voice and animated actions. Or, press his chest button to activate Battle or Training mode; the Lightsaber will illuminate with amazing sound effects! Kylo Ren will know how you move the Lightsaber and will coach you to join him on the dark side.
Watch this video to see Kylo Ren in action.
Thinkway Toys also offers other beloved Star Wars characters, including Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca and even an AT-AT U-Command. See all of their available figures here.
Because of the quality, functionality and patent-pending design, these toys are offered at a higher price point than you may be accustomed to; they retail for $159.99 to $199.99. However, after having experienced the toys for myself, I think they’re PERFECT for the adult Star Wars enthusiast on your holiday list, or even a special boy or girl who’s been *very good* this year.
Now, although I have equal love for both Kylo Ren and Darth Vader, easily two of the most popular villains known to geekdom, I am particularly in love with the R2-D2 Interactive Robotic Droid.
This gutsy Droid comes to life like never before! Send instant or pre-programmed commands via remote control, or use the 10 buttons to program over 1000 action combinations. The unit is voice activated, which means you can talk to R2 and he’ll respond to you! R2’s body tilts forward for walking while his head spins, just like the character you know and love.
And the piece de resistance? He even projects a holographic image of Princess Leia on a wall. Enjoy over 20 sound effects, lights and actions!
This holiday season and beyond, Star Wars deluxe animatronic figures from Thinkway Toys are a must-have for any Jedi Master in your life. Hurry! There’s still time left to order in time for Christmas. Click here to shop.
