It’s never too early to introduce your baby to the wonders of Star Wars, even if they are way too young to sit through the movies with you. (Maybe.) So on today’s Star Wars Day, May the Fourth be with you while you check out these fantastic Star Wars baby gifts we’ve gathered for the youngest fans-to-be. Hey, we started ours young, too.
Little Sapling Toys’ limited-edition Darth Vader teether toy is only available through today, so order yours now so that your little one can gum the Dark Lord of the Sith. Fortunately this Darth Vader teether isn’t a threat to the galaxy, or to your kid, as it’s made from non-splintering Hard Rock Maple which is naturally anti-bacterial, non-allergenic, and non-toxic. ($18 with personalization available; order today!)
Introduce your future Jedi to the wonder of Star Wars through three adorable new board books that are written just for them. Star Wars’ Epic Yarns, by brothers Jack & Holman Wang, cover the original trilogy, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, told in a simple one-word format per page like any good reading primer. But instead of cat and dog, words include Lightsaber, Trouble, and of course, Father. Gorgeously recreated scenes are handcrafted in felt to such amazing detail, even us older fans will enjoy turning the pages of these board books. (from $8 at our affiliate Amazon)
Want to make your impossibly cute baby even cuter? Slip him or her into The Wishing Elephant’s handmade R2D2 baby onesie with hat. Even if your baby can’t spin in place, we’ll all think of our favorite droid whenever we see it. ($48)
Let your baby gaze up to a galaxy far, far away — or, really, just above her head — with Sheep Creek Studio’s detailed, felted Star Wars mobile. With planets, an (unexploded) Death Star, and various flying ships like the most incredible X-Wing fighter, this is a serious work of art that true fans will want to keep and display long past the baby mobile stage. ($270 with customization available, by Sheep Creek Studio)
Created by Jan Skácelík for handz, this trilogy of posters that we discovered a while back, includes illustrations from the three original movies. The artist will even recreate them in colors to suit your nursery decor. Aren’t they amazing? ($55 for set of three unframed posters)
We’d never recommend sticking a lightsaber in your mouth, unless it’s this sweet natural cotton yarn baby rattle. Grab it in green, blue, purple, red, and pink. Though you may want to read up on the red lightsaber so you know what you’re getting yourself into before you should hand that over to your babe. ($25 at Handmade Monster)
Bed Hog Shop’s generous 36″x48″ handmade cotton patchwork quilt makes a very special baby shower or new baby gift. When your little one is young, this quilt would make a big impact hanging on the nursery wall or draped over the rocker. That is, until baby is old enough to snuggle with his or her very own droid. Way more comfortable than trying to sleep with R2D2 himself. ($280)
