The Skywalker Saga

Must-have pick

Get the entire Skywalker saga in one gorgeous box set, complete with behind the scenes features and extras.

Now that one of cinema’s greatest and longest-running sagas is complete, it’s the perfect time to get your hands on a complete set of the films on Blu-ray – or 4K Blu-ray, if you’re happy to splash out a significantly higher price.

It’ll net you some of the most exciting films ever made, with oodles of bonus material to peruse, as well.

Sphero BB-8

Classic pick

Sphero’s droids are basically toy royalty, and its BB-8 is as fun to play with as ever, years later.

The Sphero BB-8 is a must-have toy for any Star Wars fan, and they’re practically an institution at this point. The dinky robot companion is one of the big stars of the Star Wars franchise, and now you can control your very own robot sidekick.

You can get a BB-8 either on its own, where you use an app on your smartphone to control it, or with a Force Band, which lets you use the force to move him in different directions.

Sphero also launched a range of app-enabled droids including R2-D2, R2-Q5, and BB9-E. As with BB-8, you can watch the Star Wars films with any of the droids and they will react to various scenes. They will even interact with each other if you have them all rolling around your floor at home.

Now, Sphero has actually stopped making these droids, but there’s still stock to be found all over the place, so don’t despair.

Star Wars Monopoly: The Force Awakens Edition

Superb crossover

Perhaps the most classic family board game gets a Star Wars makeover, and is sure to fuel gaming sessions for years.

You can choose whether to play on the Empire or Rebels’ side in this novelty version of Monopoly, based on Star Wars. It’s capitalism, but not as you know it – hotels are replaced by bases, and addresses by planets. As any family knows, though, don’t blame Monopoly when you start to lose patience with each others’ ruthless business decisions.
