Everyone's excited about the upcoming new Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There's Google keeping the Force alive--until the movie premieres in December 18--by adopting special executions on their programs and apps (you could have C-3PO give you directions on Waze).
And since LucasFilm was bought by Disney, every possible kind of merchandise has been popping up here and there. Heck, even kids who haven't seen the previous six films are thrilled to see and play with Star Wars toys. (Thanks, too, to Disney XD's animated series Star Wars Rebels!)
The latest addition to the Star Wars collectibles are these awesome limited-editon children’s beddings. SNURK, an Amsterdam-based bedding label (and also a Dutch term which means "to snore" in English), has come up with two sets of kids’ beddings that turn your little Padawan into Darth Vader or Chewbacca every time he or she snuggles up in bed. That, or they could just be content sleeping beside them. Made in collaboration with J.Crew and LucasFilm (yes, they are official merch!), these ensure that "The Force Awakens" in your child every morning.
Designer and co-founder of SNURK Peggy van Neer, who is also a mom of two, details her design process via BoredPanda.com: “It was an honor to work with their images and legendary characters. But it was also a lot of work to do. After selecting the right photograph from the LucasFilm image bank (what a treat for a fan to browse through this!!), we had to get the resolution high enough to use on a duvet cover.” Peggy is proud of the final outcome, saying “Hope people will like them… May the force be with us!”
The bedding sets are made of cotton and include a twin-size duvet cover and a pillowcase with the hi-res full-body images of Darth Vader and Chewbacca. Too bad there isn't a C-3PO or a Princess General Leia version. (And thank God Jar Jar Binks will never be within reach of your sleeping kids!) And it looks like the manufacturers would need a lot more convincing to make these in adult-size beddings. (We feel you, Dads.)
Time to choose a side: the Dark Side or the Light Side. Either way, we bet the kiddos won’t be waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
Kids’ SNURK™ Star Wars™ Beddings are exclusively available on J.Crew. Click here for Darth Vader and here for Chewie. Just in case you're wondering, yes, they ship to the Philippines but they do come at a hefty price.
