star wars toys

With Star Wars catching on in our house so much these days, it was brought to my attention that we don't have enough Star Wars toys in our house.  Despite the fact that we have more toys than we really know what to do with sometimes, I couldn't help but agree.  I told Jimmy that he could surely ask for some for his birthday or Christmas, but in the meantime we made some of our own. I got out some old Playmobil figures, switched some hair colors, added a little paint, marker, and electrical tape, and we had our own versions of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo:
   I think Han's gun is actually a gas pump handle... not sure.
While doing this, I suddenly remembered I had these giant clear-green tooth pick things I had held onto for some unknown reason and realized they would make perfect light sabers.
Jimmy had also been begging he to make this egg carton vehicle.  He said ours turned out cooler.  We did have a droid to help drive it.
This space ship is, of course, our own design, but it is Star Wars inspired.  It is already breaking so I don't know how long it will last, but at least we eat a lot of eggs so we can always make more.  Jimmy loved all of it, but he wanted me to keep going and make Darth Vader and all the rest.  We shall see.  Don't hold your breath.


  1. I am SO impressed with your excellent creativity! You are definitely an Awesome Mom.

  2. Love it! These are so cute.

  3. Han Solo's gun is awesome! He looks like he should be in a paintball episode of Community.
