We were so lucky to receive Angry Birds Star Wars products for review! My son is way into the Angry Birds apps on the phone, I also let him play with my parents and friends on Facebook. He has several sets of the Angry Birds game sets, and absolutely LOVES them. The Millennium Falcon Bounce Game is a little different, but actually very fun and entertaining. It says on the box foe Ages 8+, however, it was easily played by all the kids, they are ages: 4, 6, 7 (will be 8 very soon). I even had a blast playing with the kids. Below I have listed 3 new items that are out.

Toss around these 3.5-inch soft foam, iconic characters for a new way to play ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS! Available in LUKE SKYWALKER, CHEWBACCA, DARTH VADER and STORMTROOPER. Each sold separately.
Now the Millennium Falcon Bounce Game is totally awesome! I actually liked it a little better than the other ones because of the simplicity, and that we all could play it very easily. It only took minutes to assemble the ship, place the decals, and put together the pigs to knock down. It is easily set back up for each person to take their turn. We played in the kitchen on the floor where there was definitely enough room but I know it could easily be played at the table, or even on a coffee table. The balls are similar to ping pong balls (a little sturdier), and they bounce nicely. We played this for a couple hours after dinner. I really liked that it could be played by everyone, you don't find that very often with games. I also kind of applied some skills that we are trying to teach our little foster girl, taking turns, following rules, and being a good sport. The only thing I had to do was glue the bases to the pigs because every once in a while they would fall out...but that is just thinking ahead, if I am doing something and don't want to have to fix them a hundred times, you know kids, mom has to fix everything!
It was also easily disassembled and put away in the box with no over flow like some games, those are the ones we usually lose the parts to! If you find the specially marked packages, there is a little paper inside that gives you a code to enter on the app. That is little paper in the photos.
The foam flyer was a big hit too. Our little foster girl is learning to catch so we played with this for a while sitting in a circle in the kitchen as well. It bounces, flies, and is soft and squishy, while firm at the same time. Again we used this for some skills, taking turns, going in order, trying to hit stuffed animals set out on the floor (my son has tons of angry birds, so this time the Vader Piggy took out the birds! Lots of fun! The flyer also may be marked with app content as well, ours had a code also.
Everything is of great quality and definitely worth the retail price. I was skeptical about the flyer but it holds up to a lot of throwing and bouncing.
