Embrace the Force this Fathers Day



No longer are the days when the popularity of Stars Wars was mainly among adults who were old enough to see the original trilogy or the tail end of it. Of course the films have a massive cult status and have always appeal to fans of all ages but never has there been such an influx and renewed excitement with younger children as there is now with Disney taking the reins of the new films. My is now versed in all things Star Wars and has been teaching me all about At-AT's, storm troopers and the force. Star Wars has always been the exception to the rule but even so its great to see it's enthusiasm and love cross so many generations which is why something Star Wars related makes the perfect Fathers Day present, especially one that can be done together as a family.





My 5yr old loves to build lego's and models so I knew these Star Wars activity book and cardboard models from Egmont would be the perfect thing to give his Dad this Fathers Day as this would provide a fun activity for both of them to do. We thought in the run up we would put one of the kits to the test see just how doable it was for a 5yr old and with my help we really enjoyed putting the At-At together as well as going through the puzzles and activities in the book.




He did need some assistance although not too much to make the At-At which is surprisingly durable and very well designed. It took us around half an hour to build and was a great family activity to do together and we have kept the Millennium Falcon to gift to John so that they have something they can do together on Fathers Day.  John being a Star Wars fan and the Falcon being from the original trilogy I know this is going to be something that can really bond over.





The great thing about these activity book and model is they are not super expensive which can be the case with some Star Wars related gifts, coming in at £8.99 and best of all I have one Smuggles Starship activity books to giveaway to one of my readers. It's super easy to enter and the giveaway ends on the 26th of June

  10. Elis LOVES Star Wars. It's lovely to re-live the old episodes through him - and get to know the new ones with him. Elis is also going through a major lego phase. I don't buy any kits - but he just loves fashioning his own x-wings out of his lego piles. Hope you are all well :) x
