Thanks to The Force Awakens, Star Wars fever is sweeping the universe, and since you can’t go to the theater every day, you might be interested in some other Star Wars diversions. To help fill the Star Wars void during your free time, take a look at the free Star Wars games available at Poki.com.
Poki has lots of browser-based games for a wide range of age groups. The Star Wars games feature LEGO and Phineas and Ferb characters, to name a few.
Take a few minutes and play some games. Train with Yoda, running through the swamps of Dagobah, or build your own droid in the Jawa Junkyard. Feel like thinking a bit? Try a puzzle game like Sith Assault.
But, wait! You’re not into Star Wars? (INCONCEIVABLE!) That’s okay, I guess. Try one of the Frozen, SpongeBob, Pokemon, or other LEGO games.
Whatever type of game you enjoy, you’ll find something you like at Poki. Just don’t forget to let the kids have a turn.
I’m getting quite excited about the upcoming premier of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII THE FORCE AWAKENS. From the video clips, news releases, production photos, and general buzz, it sounds like it will be amazing! The movie will be in US theaters December 18, 2015.
Until then, I’m reading all about it, and looking for other Star Wars related stuff to share. Here are some unofficial, sometimes non-traditional/non-canon pieces of Star Wars fan art that I want to feature.
These belong to the artists who created them, and they are simply adorable. Click to view larger images, and enjoy!
This short film is adorable! It’s a story about our favorite little droid, R2-D2, looking for love in San Francisco and Berkeley. He falls hard for a quiet mailbox and tries to woo her… Watch to find out how the story ends.

Happy Halloween, everybody! This year, our family has one bleeding-Scream-face teenager, a homemade 5th grade Viking, and a 2nd grade kitty cat. Does your family need some last-minute Halloween help? Here are some free printable Star Wars masks. Click for the pdf, print it out, and you’re ready to party!
My kids have been playing their new Kinect Star Wars game, having lots of fun with light sabers and podracing and such. I got a nice Star Wars Day (May the fourth be with you…) message from the Xbox e-mail robot today.
It included a free gift that you might enjoy, so I’ll share it here! It’s a booklet on the proper care and feeding of your pet Rancor, which could come in handy if you get a new pet Rancor for Star Wars Day. You can view and download the printable booklet here. Enjoy!
I love these! I know I say that a lot, but I really do love these. I found this set of 5 droid “shampoo” dispensers at strapya. For $89.95 USD, you can get the lot, and put one in each bathroom. How cute would that be? Good-bye, fuzzy toilet lid cover. Farewell, traditional bathroom decor. Hello, droids! From the product description: Limited Star Wars R2D2 & All-Star Astromech Droids: R4-P17, R2-R9, R2-D2, R2-Q5 & R2-A6
Shapoo Bottle Droids for use of your bath time.
Some heavy Star Wars fanatics wouldn’t use them
as shampoo bottles for collectible purpose.
Each Droid comes in a perfect Star Wars Package.
From what I understand, these are a limited edition, in connection with the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars movie debut in Japan. I think my kids would wash their hands more frequently if the soap came out of a droid.
Every time I read a FoxTrot that references Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or blogging, I become a bigger fan of the strip. Here is one I loved from January, 2008. Please click the picture to see a larger version, and then go support the author. Enjoy!
