Over 40 years after the release of A New Hope, Star Wars remains as popular as ever. Only part of this is due to the incredible success of The Mandalorian -- but it's a big part. Before looking ahead to all of the awesome new Star Wars content we have to look forward to in 2021 and beyond, here's a look back at our best-selling Star Wars merch from last year.
This awesome LEGO building set is perfect for young creative and engaged Star Wars fans. Instructions for building three droids is included in this massive 1177-piece set: R2-D2; a Mouse Droid (MSE); and a Gonk Droid (GNK).
This STEM-style play and learning set includes an interchangeable BOOST unit to power the droids for motion and authentic Star Wars sounds. Use the free LEGO BOOST Star Wars app to program your droids. You can build different tools and weapons and program each droid to follow missions provided by the app. Learning how to code is easy using prompts from the app and drag-and-drop pieces of code.
This Star Wars LEGO Droid building set is a perfect gift idea for curious kids interested in toys that provide fun challenges!
This is a sturdy and multi-functional piece of wall decor for Star Wars fans. The piece features an epic compilation image of Darth Vader along with an X-Wing and a Star Destroyer. This functional wall decor includes five metal hooks at the bottom and would be extremely handy in a variety of locations in your home.
Use this Star Wars wall hook rack to hang up your keys, jackets, your pet's leashes, umbrellas, purses or bags, or other items your family would want to keep handy. It's also great for hanging up face masks and keeping them ready to use when needed.
Boys who love Star Wars will be happy to get this set of four t-shirts inspired by the space saga. This is a nice variety of tees for any young fan; the unisex cut makes them perfect for boys and girls.
With this 4-pack of Star Wars tees purchase, you'll get the following: a light blue tee with R2-D2 with the slogan BEEP BEEP; a red collegiate-style shirt featuring Darth Vader with text COME TO THE DARK SIDE over the iconic mask; a green-gray shirt with a minimalist illustration of two lightsabers clashing; and a heather grey shirt with the familiar Star Wars logo in red, accompanied by cartoon-style images of a Stormtrooper helmet, Darth Vader's helmet, and Yoda's face.
Planning on a Mandalorian party this season? Get your cake decoration out of the way with an easy cake topper like this insanely cute cartoon version of The Child that we all call Baby Yoda. The youngster has a typical smile on its face yet holds up one hand in a force-move kind of way.
This is a non-edible plastic Baby Yoda cake topper, meaning you can keep the cute character as a memento of your party long after the event has passed. The Child looks great against a plain background or have your bakery frost your cake with a strange planet landscape.
You've probably heard by now that a very special little plush toy likeness of The Child from The Mandalorian made an appearance on the recent successful joint mission to send astronauts to the International Space Station from U.S. soil. The toy figure was used as the Crew-1 flight team's "zero G indicator".
Any small object will do for this purpose, but using a cultural icon makes it more fun.
Earlier this year, the crew of Demo-2, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, used a plush dragon chosen by their sons to be their zero G indicator.
We're not sure which Baby Yoda toy the crew used in the latest mission, but we think it looks a lot like this popular 8" plush from Mattel. This plush toy is lightweight with a bean-filled base for stability. It's also hand-sized, making it the right size for the job as zero G indicator.
Back here on Earth, this is an incredibly highly rated Star Wars toy, with over 2100 ratings at time of this writing, and an overall score of 5/5 stars. This toy figure of The Child was first released in May 2020.
It's hard not to smile when you see this little guy, whether floating in space or perched on your bookshelf. He's also fun to place on your car's dashboard (where he hopefully won't be doing any zero G indicator work), next to your biggest brown mug in your kitchen, suspended from your ceiling zero-G-style, or sitting next to you on the couch as you watch the newest episode of The Mandalorian.
The crew talked about Baby Yoda briefly during a recent press conference. The entire video is interesting to watch, but you can skip to the Baby Yoda portion which starts at about 11:40.
This is a fun old-school gift idea for fans of Star Wars. The wooden music box plays the main Star Wars theme when you crank the hand lever.
This is a miniature music box made for Star Wars fans. The wooden box reads STAR WARS on the top of the lid and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU inside the lid. Star Wars characters are etched on the sides of the box. This Star Wars music box needs no batteries -- you make the music yourself when you turn the hand crank.
This is a cute switch plate cover for Star Wars fans. It's made for a single toggle switch and shows a silhouette of Yoda on the top, along with text that reads JOIN THE LIGHT SIDE. The bottom of the cover has a Darth Vader helmet and text that reads JOIN THE DARK SIDE.
The printed Star Wars switch plate cover is white with black images and text, making it a neutral piece that will go in virtually any room. It's fun for a fan's bedroom, your family tv room or den, or the office light switch of a Star Wars superfan.
Play the classic family card game in old school Star Wars style with this officially licensed game set. UNO is a fast-paced card game for the whole family and can be played with 2 to 10 players.
