    Default Okay, another Star Wars toy question

    Okay, another Star Wars toy question: Light Sabers? On Amazon they all look kinda the same, with only dramatic difference in price and maybe color. Looking at this one because L would love the color. Only it says "not intended for battle." Are they all like that? Does that mean if she tried to have a sword fight the "blade" part would snap?

    the one you liked is from a costume they are usually more cheaply made You can find them as cheep as $5 but they last about that long too!

    ones like these tend to hold up better with regular play

    The ones PP linked above are good. They sell them at target for $20. We have three and only one has broken (but you can snap it back together and it works just fine), and that's after over a year of hard core play from a 5 year old boy.

    This may not be something you are interested in at all, but google "pool noodle light saber." A friend made these for her DS's 6th birthday & what a hit! The cheap dollar store pool noodle are flimsy enough that they don't hurt at all (although they sound as if they would hurt). The kids had a ball & the kids and noodles were no worse for the wear!

    These should be good. We have a similar one that we got a Disneyland and my kids love it.

    Pay attention to the color. Don't get a red one if your kid doesn't like Darth Vader.
