Smyths picks hot toy for Christmas
Wow! Stuff's Jedi Training Remote drone is "the flying toy that's flying off the shelves" at Smyths
A miniature droid from Star Wars has been hailed as the Star Wars toy of the season by buyers at Smyths Toys, ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi film on 14 December.
The Jedi Training Remote from Wow! Stuff encourages fans to use the power of the Force to control the propeller-powered droid and train for combat.
Laura Molloy, Buyer at Smyths Toys Superstores said: “The flying toy that’s flying off the shelves is the Star Wars Jedi Training Remote from toy inventors Wow! Stuff. It has proven to be a really fantastic way for fans of all ages to recreate iconic scenes from the films. It uses simulated sting beams and ‘Force' control to operate and sales are tremendous. We have stock for now but we know that hot lines have a habit of selling out quickly before Christmas, so we will do everything we can to ensure we don’t disappoint anyone coming through our door in finding one!”
Since its launch last month, Jedi Training Remote sales have been off to a flying start. The droid has also been listed by The Independent as a ‘top Star Wars: The Last Jedi product’. Based on the original device seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Jedi Training Remote is suitable for all Star Wars fans. The device darts up and down while firing simulated sting beams at its opponent, making it a great combat training aid.
