Star Wars fans everywhere (and pretty much the rest of us) know that today is #ForceFriday –the day a whole bunch of new Star Wars gifts and toys goes on sale to help build excitement for the December release of Episode VII The Force Awakens. Also known as The One Where Luke, Leia, and Han are Old.
But, you know, not everything new is better. So I have my eye on this super cool new gift that harkens back to the original Star Wars movie that we parents grew up watching. You know, the one when everyone was young.
Some lucky kids will be thrilled to score Pottery Barn Kids’ Star Wars bed, which is modeled after the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit, replacing seats with room for a twin mattress and box spring.
Crafted of solid hardwood, I love the sleek, clean look that isn’t cluttered up with logos or images all over it. And the painted controls on the inside of the headboard will make this bed a great toy for imaginative play, comfy hours of sleep, and lots of showing off.
Yes, it’s crazy expensive, so my own kids will have to do with a picture of it on their wall at best. But we know some lucky little Jedis out there will be zooming off to dreamland in hyperdrive. Just get ready to tell them to get off the controls at bedtime and put their head on their pillow. Hey, even Jedis need their zzzz’s.
The Pottery Barn Kids’ Star Wars bed is available for preorder for $3,999. It will be ready to ship around October 11, 2015. CMP is an rstyle affiliate.
