Star Wars fans geek out as Force Friday II begins

Star Wars fans geek out as Force Friday II begins

The whole pack comes with 6 Bits, 20 Droid Parts, sticker sheets and access to the free Droid Inventor app.

Along with all of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi reveals - including the LEGO sets, Funko Pop!

Some of the Droid features include Force Drive, which lets kids guide their creation with a wave of their hand, self navigation, wherein the Droid can maneuver itself around objects, and a draw mode that lets the Droid draw secret maps or messages. Littlebits is also advising they will continue to add more functionality to the app down the track as well.

When "The Force Awakens" landed in 2015, you'll recall - in a commercial rollout that now feels far, far away - the franchise's new female hero Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) got short shrift, being underrepresented or altogether absent on much of the merchandise, including in board games. But to keep people even more excited, they have released a ton of new toys and gadgets for Force Friday II.

The company is committed to bringing more girls into STEM/STEAM by designing products that are gender-inclusive and celebrating female inventors. littleBits products now see adoption by girls at around thirty-five percent-an industry high.

"The littleBits Droid Inventor Kit has the elements to be one of this year's hot toys", said Jim Silver, CEO and editor-in-chief of TTPM, a toy review site for parents, in the statement.

Music fans might prefer the Official Star Wars Levitating Death Star Speaker, which beams tunes from a gravity defying orb.

The company is dedicated to successfully bridging the gender gap with its gender-neutral platform, attracting an industry high thirty five percent of young girls to invent with littleBits.
