Little Jedi: I want a lightsaber.

Me: We can get you a toy lightsaber.

LJ: I need two lightsabers.

Joun (the husband): What color?  Qui-Gonn has Green and Darth Vader has red…

LJ: I want two blue lightsabers.

Joun: This is all you.

She wants to be just like mommy. Awww.

We ended up with one purple lightsaber due to selection (no blue) and the fact that there’s no way for a 4-year-old to actually hold up two at a time.

Two Hours Later…

Little Jedi’s Lightsaber — 8 Comments

  1. There are light saber suckers you can get for her that are blue. After the candy part is gone you can still use the hilt and case as a light saber. Dirty it up a bit so the light reflects within the case, glue it on top for safety, and she can easily dual wield those little suckers. /pun

    • Well they did have blue lightsabers at the store that did NOT light up. To me, this is unacceptable and lame. I mean… they HAVE to glow!

  2. We have a blue and a purple so that we can fight each other. My daughter has some sweet moves, like the one where she holds it out straight and spins towards me like a windmill.

    Definitely get a second one so duels can happen, otherwise she will need to beat on stuff to make the crashing noise, and that can only lead to bad. I tried to have her use the cat’s scratching post as a training dummy, but that was not enough for her, so the second lightsaber was purchased.

    • OMG she cracks me up all the time. The problem is stifling the laugh when laughing would be completely inappropriate or encourage inappropriate behavior… I lose parent cred in a big way when I can’t hold in the giggles.
