Star Wars The Force Awakens BB-8 Gifts

BB-8 Droid

I'll start by saying that I am totally amazed at how popular this new Star Wars character, BB-8, is even before the new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is released. 

The idea that people dressed as BB-8 for Halloween and that toys were flying off the shelves even before the release of the movie is really quite remarkable and a testament to the popularity of the Star Wars franchise with all generations. 

If you like the franchise yourself, I know you will enjoy these BB-8 gift ideas all of which feature, the new and very popular astromech droid. I have chosen ten interesting items. They are all items that I would like to own. They vary in price from quite affordable to budget stretchers. There is definitely something available for everyone whether you are looking for a really special toy that will be treasured forever or for something that is more affordable and practical.

BB-8 Coffee Keeps Me Rolling Coffee Mug

I'm a big coffee mug fan and collector so it seems natural that I'll start my list with a mug and yes, there are a number of BB-8 mugs available. Shown above is Hallmark's mug, Coffee Keeps Me Rolling. It's a handsome piece, available on Amazon by clicking here.

BB-8 Reversible Winter Scarf

There's an attractive knitted reversible scarf featuring the image of BB-8. You will find it on Amazon by clicking right here.

BB-8 Plans T-Shirt

Another of my favorite finds is this BB-8 t-shirt, which features the plans used for building the droid. It's available on Amazon by clicking right here

BB-8 Night Light

This item had me scratching my head until I read more about it. It's a night light that mounts on the wall. The decal makes it look like BB-8 is crashing through the wall and into your room. It runs on batteries so there is no cord to ruin the effect. You can find it on Amazon by clicking here. There's also an alarm clock available that looks much the same without the decal. You can find it by clicking here.

BB-8 Lego

If you are a Lego fan, you will find BB-8 as a minifigure in two Lego sets, the new version of the Millenium Falcon, set 75105 and Poe's X-Wing Fighter, set 75102.

Of course, it is also possible just to buy the minifigures from the new movie.  I have found the four of them available here on Amazon or you can find BB-8 on his own on Amazon by clicking here. They would make great and unexpected stocking stuffers for any fan though you have to pay a premium to buy them separately from the big sets.

BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

Finally, here's the coolest BB-8 toy in town. It's the sought after BB-8 app-enabled droid.

Watch him in action in this two-minute video but watch with this warning in mind. Watching will make you want to own this droid.

What did you think? I think BB-8 is a whole lot of fun and I know that I am not alone. He's the cutest little droid out there and he is one of this Christmas' hottest toys. You can find the BB-8 App-Enabled Droid here on Amazon.
