I may be swearing slightly here, but I am one of the very few people on the planet that has never really watched Star Wars. My boys on the other hand like anything related it to it. They were therefore more than happy to review some of the latest Star Wars releases from Egmont, and educate me a bit on the way.
The boys were extremely excited by Star Wars Starfighter Workshop: Make Your Own X-wing and Tie Fighter, This contained large cardboard pieces to construct. There is also an activity book with puzzles contained within this book.
I would love to say that building the fighters was as easy as this video. Infact, watching the video helps a lot. I am clearly a visual learner.
Luckily the pieces are strong so all is not lost of you do make a mistake. The boys have really enjoyed playing with these models, although I think they are more for look at once made. There is an option to add wire to hang the X wing.
Star Wars Treasury: The Original Trilogy is just the type of book that big man loves. Full of highlights from the original films, it is a book that he stays up reading, way past his bedtime. The illustrations are beautiful and Star Wars fans are bound to enjoy this book.
Middle man on the other hand has been taken by Escape From Darth Vader: A Star Wars Saga Reader (Young Readers Level 1). The young readers stories are simple but really nicely illustrated. Middle man was so excited by them, he took them into school for show and tell.
Middle man is quite a confident reader but he did struggle a little with some of the words, due to the nature of the stories. He was fine after a couple of reads though.
My boys have really enjoyed all of these books in different ways. The Starfighter Workshop is hard for a child to complete the models by themselves but by watching the video and some adult help it can be done.
We have made a little video reviewing the books too if you would like to take a look.
