If you watched the Obi-Wan Kenobi show and thought your little galactic prince or princess could do with a companion like Lo-La, you’re in luck. Not only does this figurine light up and make noise when you touch it, you can also set it to react to the sounds it hears. This allows it to greet you when you get home from a busy day of evading bounty hunters – or work, if your life is boring. Who doesn’t want a happy metallic face waiting for them when they get home?

If you’re sitting down for your annual rewatch of the Star Wars films, you’ll need some snackage to keep you going. Harness the incredible destructive power of the Death Star to complete your movie night experience. The fact that the top of the Death Star becomes a serving bowl makes this our favorite planet-destroying kitchen accessory.

Galactic Snackin’ Grogu

Honestly, we could have filled this whole list with just Grogu merchandise. There’s more than enough of it out there. Commonly called Baby Yoda or simply The Child, Grogu became the breakout star of The Mandalorian. Aside from his incredibly cute face and powerful Force abilities, his defining characteristic is clearly his appetite. Now you can feed your own Grogu with this interactive 9-inch figure that comes with four different accessories. Each one evokes a different response from the little guy, which is both very cute and way more responsibility than we’re looking for from a toy.
