Have a Star Wars fan? Are they ready to battle stormtroopers and Darth Vader but still scared of the dark?
Much to my boys’ delight this past Halloween, the Switch Witch left this great gift behind when she made off with all their Halloween candy.
It’s the Star Wars Lightsaber Room Light. What a cool and relatively inexpensive accent to your jedi’s room.
You can’t tell from the front of the packaging, but the lightsaber light needs to be assembled. Not a problem, once out of the box we had it up on the wall within 10 – 15 minutes. Assembly is pretty easy. The toy comes with your basic black and white directions. But it also includes a colorful poster identifying each part of the lightsaber and explaining it’s significance. There is also mention of how young padawans must create their own lightsaber in the final phases of their jedi training.
If that wasn’t cool enough. The room light is dim. It’s the perfect nightlight. Left alone, the lightsaber will cycle through 8 colors before eventually turning itself off after 15 minutes. If you want to turn it off sooner just manually change the color until it automatically shuts off. Should your child want to change the colors from his bed, a remote control is included. (The only flaw, and it’s very minor, is you can’t use the remote control to turn on the light, only to change the color.) Another plus the boys seem to enjoy is the sound effects. There’s a machine like sound when you manually turn off the lightsaber.
Now while the Lightsaber roomlight is probably not completely indestructible it has held up to some abuse. On the second night, my husband had informed me the lighsaber had been damaged. I went into find the lightsaber rod bent over, perpendicular to it’s base. Thankfully, it had not cracked. A little gentle squeezing on the tubing and it was standing upright again. Slightly damaged but still standing and more importantly working.
My boys have enjoyed it so much. As they watch the colors change they drift off to sleep with visions of Star Wars battles in their heads. ;) So may the force be with you…
you get this for your child you will. (Yoda speak)
