What is the top toy for this Christmas?

Star Wars toy tops Christmas wish lists

A miniature droid that resembles a Jedi training device from the Star Wars™ film collection has been hailed as the toy of the season by buyers at Smyths Toys.

The Jedi Training Remote, made by the award-winning British inventors at Wow! Stuff, encourages fans to use the ‘power of the Force’ to control the propeller-powered droid and train for combat.

Laura Molloy, Buyer at Smyths Toys Superstores said: “The flying toy that’s flying off the shelves is the Star Wars Jedi Training Remote from toy inventors Wow! Stuff. It has proven to be a really fantastic way for fans of all ages to recreate iconic scenes from the films. It uses simulated sting beams and ‘Force’ control to operate and sales are tremendous.

“We have stock for now but we know that hot lines have a habit of selling out quickly before Christmas, so we will do everything we can to ensure we don’t disappoint anyone coming through our door in finding one!”

Since its launch last month, Jedi Training Remote sales have been off to a flying start. The droid has even been listed by The Independent as a ‘top Star Wars: The Last Jedi product’.

Based on the original device seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Jedi Training Remote is suitable for all Star Wars fans.

The device darts up and down whilst firing simulated ‘sting beams’ at its opponent, making it a great combat training aid.

Suitable for adults and children aged 8 years and over, the Jedi Training Remote has an RRP of £29.99 and is available from Smyths Toys and all good retailers.
