Baby Yoda is the gift that keeps on giving, especially around the holidays. He's adorable and intelligent--and you can't go wrong with an adorable animatronic version of The Child. Your child can use a joystick to make the little guy walk, spin around, move his ears, head and arms and even play hide and seek. He can also "talk," which is essentially just some babbling sounds that will thrill your little one.

Star Wars Monopoly
Every holiday season deserves a good new board game. This season, why not give the gift of Star Wars Monopoly, which lets you play as a character from one of the movies, working to collect "properties" around the board, including planets and droids. Once you've got a set, you can start building Tie fighters and X-wings, but watch out for players landing on a light speed space!
They can fly ahead, and could snap up that property you want. The game has received nearly 3,000 rave reviews, with many calling it a "great gift." Get Star Wars Monopoly from Amazon for £19.99

Let your little one journey into deep space each night with a Star Wars Chewbacca Pillow Pet. It's both a pillow and a stuffie. During the day, your kid can keep it folded up and take it on adventures galore.
At night, when things get a little snoozy, they can unfasten Chewy's belly, and he becomes the perfect little pillow. Get the Chewbacca Pillow Pet from Kohl's for £29.99
7. Lego Millennium Falcon Starship Building Kit
A classic Star Wars fan item, the Millennium Falcon Lego set is practically a rite of passage for any young Jedi.

Got a kid in need of a good new friend?
Think about picking them up a mini plush Baby Yoda that, through a Jedi power and/or magnets, can hang out on their shoulder. It's soft, fuzzy and only about five inches tall, so it's great for hanging out at home or taking to Grandma's for the holidays. Get The Child Magnetic Shoulder Plush from ShopDisney for £19.99
Kylo Ren Lightsaber Toy
No list of Star Wars toys would be complete without a lightsaber. There's one out there for practically every Jedi and Sith of note, but this Kylo Ren model from ShopDisney is extra special because of its cross-hilt blades. All of the blades are detachable, too, so your kiddo can wear it on their belt, just like a real Jedi.
10. R2-D2 Sleeptime Lite
A cute and colorful night light by Pillow Pets, this R2-D2 version projects rainbow stars, meaning your little one can go to sleep every night thinking about a galaxy far, far away. It doesn't bleep or bloop like a real R2-D2, but it's just as adorable.
11. Lego Mos Eisley Cantina Building Kit
There are already a couple of great Lego sets on here, but here's one more. The Mos Eisley Cantina set is 3,187 pieces of smuggling, bounty hunting fun. Now, your little one--or not so little one--can recreate the legendary Tatooine watering hole, complete with a removable roof to allow access to different booths.
The set comes with 21 minifigures, including Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ponda Baba, Garindan, Labria, R2-D2 and Dewback, as well as blocks to make both extra outbuildings and two Landspeeders. Get the Lego Star Wars: A New Hope Mos Eisley Cantina 75290 Building Kit from Amazon for £349.95

Walmart buyers note that it's great for smaller hands, with one writing in their review that the gun is "not too complicated or hard to shoot," adding, "this is perfect for a little Star Wars lover in your life!" Get the Nerf Poe Dameron Blaster from Walmart for £34.99
13. Star Wars UNO
A fun stocking stuffer for any competitive kiddo, Star Wars UNO is a twist on the classic card game.
Each card features an image from the Star Wars franchise, and, like in original UNO, players race to get rid of all their cards before everyone else. Watch out for a player with a wild "Force" card, though: That card will force you to draw more cards, making winning that much harder. Get Star Wars UNO from Amazon for £7.23
Funko Pop! Mandalorian and The Child Bobblehead
If your kid is a Funko fan--and who's not, really--they might dig a bobblehead scene featuring the Mandalorian and The Child. The Mandalorian is able to bobble along, and Amazon buyers love the scene's "gorgeous detail and layout," with one even writing in their review that it's "one of the most detailed and painted Pop figures I've seen."
Potato Head Han Spud-Lo
Help start their Star Wars fandom young with Hasbro's Han Solo Mr. Potato Head. The set comes with one blank potato body, a boot-clad base and 10 different Han-like accessories, from swoopy hair to a blaster.
When he's all put together, he can either look as handsome as a young Harrison Ford or as goofy as Greedo depending on how you mix and match, but that's part of the fun of Mr. Potato Head. Get the Mr.
Potato Head Han Spud-Lo from Amazon for £20.30
