Last year, my brother gave my eight-year-old son a fabulous museum-quality light saber for his birthday. The light saber came with its own display stand. This special light sword makes authentic sounds and lights up. My son treats it like Excaliber, with the utmost of care. It is NOT used for ordinary battling. Last night, my pesky teenager grabbed the special saber to battle.
My eight-year-old was indignant. He was so flustered that he was speechless. After a few seconds, he screamed at his brother to put down the special weapon finishing up with... "It is very valuable, an antique!" The antique line worked and the light saber was put back in its place of honor. Given the light saber was most likely made just a year ago, I am not sure how it qualifies as an antique; however, if you are only eight, it probably is an antique!If your boys are like mine and love the Star Wars movies, click here to see CWDkids' entire line of themed t-shirts. Your kids can battle in style with these super comfy Junk Food tees!

This year, we are eyeing this adorable peace-signed nightgown and these monkey-covered pj's. My daughter LOVES anything with a peace sign on it so I know this gown will be a hit with her! We love pj's and gowns made by Sara's Prints as they are made with the softest cotton and really hold their color after many washings.
