I have been a big Star Wars fan all of my life. It was the first big cinema memory I had and it took place during the summer of 1977. I was 6 years old and, as a special treat, my father took me and my younger sister and brother to London to see Star Wars: A New Hope whilst my mum went shopping. I have followed the story ever since.
When Hallmark asked me if I would like some Star Wars merchandise, how in the world could I say no?!
May the Month of Star Wars Be With You
This isn’t the first time I have written about my favourite sci-fi adventure. When I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in December 2015, I had to share my thoughts. Then, when Carrie Fisher, one of my favourites actors of all time died back December 2016, the Star Wars theme graced my blog once again.
Like all fellow Jedi’s across the galaxy, Hallmark are celebrating Star Wars Month with a bang! Whether you’re a Skywalker or a Solo, a Leia or an Obi-Wan, they are ready to celebrate one of the all-time favourite franchises.
Star Wars Cards and Gift Bags
Hallmark have a perfect range of cards and gifts, to suit Star Wars fans of any age. There are an array of cards to suit all occasions which include birthday cards, funny occasion cards and pop up feature cards too.
There are these arty style cards, one depicting the unfinished Death Star from Return of the Jedi and the rebel forces starting to fight the empire. The line inside reads ‘ May your birthday be epic in every way’. Then, there is the close up of Yoda with his lightsaber which is blank inside for your own message.
There is this set of more general cards:
Two cards which will be right up Grace’s street are the dogs dressed as Darth Vader and an Ewok!
Finally, I was sent this C3-PO pop up card:
I have always found gift bags useful – and these would be great for a gift for any occasion:
I have to say that I loved this Darth Vader bottle shroud. Sure to be a talking point of any table, the top fits over the neck of the bottle and then the cloak opens out behind it:
The Star Wars Itty Bitty Range
I have had my eye on the adorable collection of Star Wars itty bitty’s for some time now. These cute plush characters are a must have for collectors, perfect for kids – big or little! There are old favouriters like Yoda, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper, together with newer characters such as Rey, BB-8 and Kylo Ren. I also received Han Solo, Princess Leia, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and the Ewoks, Chief Chirpa and Wicket. The only one missing? Luke Skywalker! I bet he is off skulking on an island somewhere!
