Being a fan of something – and showing that fandom – has many outlets these days. As well as toys, there are clothes, accessories, and homewares.
My daughter is easily identifiable as a Star Wars fan, and was lucky enough to be sent this great Stormtrooper set from Character World.
The classic stormtrooper look has always been a favourite of mine, and now it’s one of my daughter’s too. Their distinctive black & white design lends itself well to reproduction, as these items show.
The classic Stormtrooper rug (ok, among other items) has added an eye catching Star Wars look to my daughter’s room.
The trooper cushion has become more of a toy to cuddle, though other times she likes to pretend it’s a mask!
The trooper look has been updated for the forthcoming The Force Awakens.
It is this design that features on the single pillow and duvet set. These new troopers also look pretty good when reproduced, although I think the duvet isn’t as visually striking as the classic trooper items. It is also reversible with a fabric design that matches the pillow on the reverse.
As with many of these things, the stated target market is young boys, but don’t let that make you think for a second that these are not for girls too.
My daughter loves this set, and her favourite is definitely the cushion. As she currently favours the classic Stormtrooper look (that may change once she has a chance to check out the new movie) this was always going to be a hit, plus it’s a good size for her to play with.
She also calls it Stormy (who is a ‘she’ in case you were wondering – take that Captain Phasma).
The use of the stormtrooper design on all these items is nicely realised (although as mentioned I favour old trooper over new). All items are made of artificial materials if that’s something you look out for.
