Especially designed so they’re easy to use and easy to carry, just show them how it works, and watch as your child figures out a fun way to play with these handheld radio transceivers. Like a real walkie-talkie, these are nearly the exact same. Simply match the channels, and hold onto the “Talk” button to chat. All it takes is 2 AAA batteries.

7. STAR WARS LIGHTSABER WITH LIGHT & SOUND EFFECTS
May the force be with you — not with just one lightsaber, but with two!
Whether you want to wield one in each hand (Jar’Kai method) like Ahsoka Tona did, or combine them to form a double-bladed lightsaber (also known as a saberstaff), created and used by Darth Maul himself, you might want to get this set!
With handles modeled similarly to Obi Wan Kenobi’s own lightsaber, these are as close as you’ll get to the real thing. Not to mention, they also light up in all the same colors you see in the movie (plus more). And even make the same sound effects when you swing your saber around!
To create a saberstaff, all you have to do is push the bottom ends of both sabers into the included connector, until it locks into place. And with a push of a button on the saber’s hilt, you instantly illuminate and power it on!
