We’ve got something BIG happening this #ForceFriday for your little Padawan™ (that’s a Jedi-in-training). To celebrate the coming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ and our own excitement in sharing the films with the next generation of Jedis™, we’re taking the Pottery Barn Kids Star Wars™ collection to the next level. There are new talking backpacks, Death Star™ beanbags, and sleeping bags that may never be put away, but the piece that’s spinning us into light speed? It’s our take on Han Solo™’s heroic ship — the Millennium Falcon™ BED!
That iconic cockpit shape front and center of the bed is actually a play area with a reproduction of the flight control panel, the kids (or the kid in you!) can hop in and get right to battling the Empire. Because we can’t get enough of the bed, we had the ship’s lead designer takes us behind the scenes on how he carefully crafted this collector’s item piece.
After modeling a bed on the most legendary spacecraft in the galaxy, making gear kids could move from room to room and outside the home too was essential. First on our list: backpacks. The rebels and the Empire are both represented in the Darth Vader™, R2-D2™, and Chewbacca™ backpacks. With a press of a button each backpack plays sound clips of its character. Did we mention they can also be personalized with your little Jedi™’s name?
Selecting the perfect sounds was our designer’s favorite part of creating the backpack line, which she gave us a peek into below. Best. Job. Ever.
The matching sleeping bags are a must, right?
Ready for the icing on this galactic cake? We’re giving away the ultimate Star Wars Prize Pack! From now through September 30 head over to our contest page to enter.
And be sure to tell us which PBK Star Wars gear you’re snapping up this Force Friday by tagging us in your social media postings with #MyLittleJedi and @potterybarnkids.
May the Force be with you™!
