At nearly 5 years of age, Mr TT has recently begun his Star Wars obsession. He loves building X-Wing fighters with LEGO, turns anything into a lightsaber and enthusiastically hums the Imperial March while deep in pretend play. He’s also a big fan of the “Mexican Falcon”. Millennium is a tough word for a 4 year old to grasp.
When it comes to ideas for Star Wars gifts, we’re spoilt for choice. However amongst the huge selection of LEGO sets, lightsabers and other plastic toys, I like to try and give gifts that are unique and practical – a quality gift that can be enjoyed by kids and appreciated by parents for years to come.
In celebration of International Star Wars Day on May 4 (as in “May the fourth be with you”), one of my favourite stores, Pottery Barn Kids, is offering 20% off their entire Star Wars collection for one week. I’m lucky to work in close proximity to a Pottery Barn Kids store. It’s lucky AND dangerous. Wandering through the selection of stunning children’s home furnishings and decorative accessories, I can easily shop up a storm.
Originally introduced in the USA in 1999 (and now in Australia – yay!), Pottery Barn Kids offers exclusive designs that create kid-friendly, stylish and innovative spaces for any nursery, bedroom or playroom. Furniture, bedding, bath accessories, window treatments, rugs, lighting, decorative accessories, toys, nursery essentials and gear such as backpacks and reusable lunch bags – there’s plenty of unique and practical gift goodness to be found.
I’ve rounded-up some of my favourite bargains from the Star Wars range. I’ve already bought a sheet set for Mr TT’s birthday in July…
