To celebrate this holiday season, The Toy Wall is helping Playground Dads everywhere find the coolest toys for their families in this 12 Days of Christmas Toys series!
It’s amazing how quickly our brains are rewired after watching Star Wars. From that moment on, any long object (i.e. stick, broom, whiffle-ball bat) triggers a synaptic charge, which then equates it to a lightsaber. If two such objects are present in the presence of another person, a duel must immediately take place.
Back in the day, we had to make the “whoosh” sounds with each swing while at least one person did their best Darth Vader voice as you battled. But with the new STAR WARS ULTIMATE FX LIGHTSABER your kids can concentrate more on their swordsmanship and style as the innovative sensor-controlled effects will take care of the rest.
Unlike the more expensive and hyper-realistic lightsabers that older geeks hang on their walls for display, this new version is affordable and finally built durable enough to withstand punishment from younger Jedis in training.
Power up the 36” plastic blade by pushing the single working button on the hilt, and watch in amazement as the glowing power with the ominous humming sound is unleashed. The best part of this toy is the motion sensor-controlled effects, so as the lightsaber makes contact, the familiar crackling sounds and flickering lights emit just like in the movies!
Only two versions are available for the holidays, Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker, so you’ll have to choose between the dark side of the Force or for good/pre-dark side. I’d get both since duels are meant for two, and you’ll technically be able to fight yourself!
