When Father And Daughter Love Star Wars.

At the time I met my husband I was acquainted with Star Wars. I had watched several episodes growing up and seen a Star Wars movie with friends at the age of 18 but I never really knew much about Star Wars.

Then along came my husband John. He is the biggest Star Wars Geek I know and loves the movies, the characters and the merchandise.

I honestly cannot recall how many times Star Wars has been played in our home. I am sure my husband watches at least one of the movies each week and I now feel I know a lot more than I used to.

In fact, my daughter has spent the past four years being surrounded by StarWars. John has star wars movies, books, memorabilia and Lego characters and I’m really not surprised that Sylvia naturally loves Star Wars too.

They say you can raise a child and I’ve often heard of nature versus nurture. Star Wars is certainly something Sylvia has been nurtured and taught to love.

I really don’t mind too much. In fact, I encourage my daughter to share a passion with her dad. It’s great to see them watching movies together and enjoying something fun. John is so excited about the up and coming film at the end of the year.

So in keeping with the Star Wars spirit, we went out a few weeks ago and did a star wars themed photoshoot. We even got the dogs Yoda and Casper involved. Can you tell we love Star Wars? Our dog is named after Master Yoda.

Well, I worked with a fancy dress company several months ago and I was given a voucher to choose some costumes. I chose a star wars costume for Sylvia and a Star Wars costume for Yoda. I put these away for my daughter’s birthday in May and got them out last month. Yes, we took the photos a while ago but I’ve not had a chance to share them up until now.

We were also sent a fabulous Star Wars Bladebuilders LightSaber system which is quite amazing. The set features the main lightsaber which has lights and sounds. It has two independently lit light daggers, expansion hilt, two elbow connectors, a dual connector a cross connector.

Sylvia loved her lightsaber and loved having her photos taken. My husband enjoyed this too and was having so much fun showing Sylvia the correct way to use a Light Saber. It was really fun to watch them having so much fun.

The light sabre from Hasbro looks like the ones which appear in the movies. It simulates classic lights and sounds and is highly customisable with accessories.

My daughter and husband had so much fun playing with their new lightsaber, (I say their) because my hubby is kind of sharing it with my daughter. They sure had fun and this was a fun item to review given how much my family love Star Wars.

  1. hehehe! This sounds exactly like my fella and my teen….Many people will hate me for saying this but I don’t like Star Wars. My fella and girl will sit and watch the films all day given the chance….
    Fab photos. Sylvia really looks the part x

  2. Aww this is cute. I can imagine my partner will be like this when we have children of our own. We are both Star Wars fans too. If your partner hasn’t already, recommend the Star Wars miniatures game – your partner and daughter may enjoy playing it together 🙂

  3. What an awesome costume! I managed to go 32 years without ever seeing a Star Wars movie, but then Nathan watched one of them with Oscar and now he’s obsessed! I’ve seen 3 different ones now, I think. And sadly know the names of all the characters. I’m definitely not a fan, but I love it’s something that Oscar and his daddy can enjoy together 🙂

  5. My husband and daughters love Star Wars too – it’s nice that they have something to enjoy together

  6. Master Yoda made me smile .. what a sweetie! She’s such a natural with the lightsaber. I remember when my son was little, he loved them too and would walk about having imaginary sword fights. Fun to think back ..

  7. This might be the BEST thing that I have seen all day. I love these photos. Your daughter is my hero! I hope my son loves Star Wars as much as her. 😛
