With the highly anticipated release of the newest installment in the widely loved Star Wars franchise coinciding right around the holidays, the market is flooded with awesome Star Wars themed toys and games, which is great for kids, but definitely makes it tough on us grownups.
How does a parent know which one is the right one?! Do you get the one that lights up or maybe the one that makes noise or what about the one that moves on its own... Or what about the one that does all of those things and more?! Say "Hello" to Legendary Yoda.
This is the lifelike Jedi master that trains young Padawans to fully embrace The Force. With all the realism of the iconic Star Wars character, including 115 spoken phrases (“Ready to train, are you?”), a convincing latex body and fabric robe, and an illuminated lightsaber, this interactive 17 1/2"-tall Yoda assumes three roles for interactive play. As a warrior, Yoda demonstrates his lightsaber technique with lifelike 360° spins, strikes, and parries, granted by seven built-in micro-motors. Yoda trains students how to use The Force to push him backward—a motion sensor detects your movement and hidden wheels roll him away—and his left palm glows when he detects the dark side of The Force. When holding his cane, Yoda’s built-in voice recognition technology responds to six key phrases, to which he will answer yes or no questions to impart wisdom—your interactions reveal to him whether your intentions are good or evil. Requires six C batteries. Ages 6 and up. 16" H x 13" W x 11 1/2" D.
Imagine how surprised your little Padawan will be when they wake up to see Master Yoda sitting under the tree. I admit, I am even a little bit "wow'd" by this thing. With over 115 spoken phrases, this is not your mama's electronic toy from back in the day.
The force is strong with this awesome toy, but what if you are already a level 12 Jedi master or maybe you can't train due to an old football injury? No worries, Hammacher Schlemmer still has you covered. With the nation's longest running catalog in existence, there's bound to be something for every name on your "nice" list this year.

Trust me people, no one likes to receive nuts for a gift... no one.
