“May the Fourth be with You,” the punny riff on the famous
Star Wars saying, traces its start to 1979, according to so called geek holiday experts. But even after 44 years, it remains relevant to super Star Wars fans. So what better time than May 4 to share your love of Luke and Leia with your child with a Star Wars toy or gift?
The galaxy of
Star Wars toys is never-ending, so there’s truly something for everyone, from the newbie fan to the veteran aficionado. And with the recent arrival of Disney+’s , there’s even more deep space swag to snag. If you haven’t succumbed to a Mandalorian series Baby Yoda purchase yet, now is the time. Not to mention the seemingly hundreds of thousands of action figures, LEGO sets, light sabers, plush Ewoks, playing cards, scooters, and even Darth Vader shaped stereos available.
Which is to say, “
May the Fourth be with...” might take on new meaning this year. It might instead be used as an insider Jedi mind trick used to stop parents from overindulging their own childhood Star Wars passions to prevent them from purchasing a whole AT-TE Walker filled with Galactic Republic collectibles.
