Some users build the R2D2 together as a family.
Users also love the customization factor: children are proud of themselves once they’ve built their droid, and they become curious about how electronics work in other items around the house. So be prepared for questions!

Hasbro Gaming Star Wars Retro Game. Click the photo to see the price on Amazon.
This game combines the fun of a board game with interactive digital content, so there’s something for everyone. The game is based on the original retro board game Star Wars Escape from Death Star that was released by Kenner in 1977, and comes with a Retro Collection Grand Moff Tarkin action figure that is exclusive to the game.
Players help their favorite characters escape the Death Star trash compactor and escape to freedom. Characters Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca are helped to choose the right passageways, with players deciding if they’ll take shortcuts that may risk encounters with the Force.
The winner is the first player to fight their way through the TIE fighters and get to the Rebel Base.
Users really like the retro action figure (the game is the only way to purchase one), and that the entire family can play together, even with younger children (5-7 year olds).
They also like that the game is great for display, either the figure or the box, and that the game is a lot like the old game that many remember.

The workbook has thousands of original illustrations from all 6 Star Wars movies and the Star Wars universe. Featured characters are Luke Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, plus Jedi and Sith monsters, and other creatures.
