Girl 'Star Wars' Fan Bests Bullies With Support From Online Geeks Across the Galaxy

Katie Goldman is a 7-year-old with a very big fan club. A first grader in Evanston, Ill., Katie carried a "Star Wars" water bottle to school every day, until a few weeks ago, when, out of the blue, she asked her mom if she could take an ol...The Force is with a little girl who dared to carry a "Star Wars" water bottle to school.

Hungry for breakfast are you, hmm? Yeesssss. Sure, the Force is what gives a Jedi Knight his power, but even Yoda knows how important a good breakfast is for you...

Old Enough For Star Wars?

My husband and I both feel there are a lot of shows aimed at our 8-year-old that are not necessarily appropriate. The boyfriend/girlfriend story lines on the popular tween shows make us cringe and we both dislike the bad behavior many of the charact...

Man has Britain's largest Legos collection

When Britain Darren Smith started collecting Legos at the tender age of five, he (and his parents) probably had no idea it would turn into an obsession. Smith, now thirty-two, has amassed what is being claimed as Britain's largest Lego collection. ...

Legos go Hollywood (again)

OK, celebrities appearing as Legos is AWESOME. Well, at the very least it's humorous. I don't know if you played with Legos as a kid, or if your children enjoy them, but Legos have withstood the test of time.
Legos were first created in 1932. T...

Movies for geek kids (or kids of geeks)

Wired Magazine is offering up a list of ten films that will help you raise your kids as geeks. First on the list is Star Wars, one of the most significant space movies in history. What geek in the seventies didn't dream of being Luke Skywalker and sa...

When are they old enough to watch Star Wars?

Over the past few months, my daughter has become obsessed with Star Wars. Whenever she gets bored in the car, at home, or on a walk, she asks me to tell her about Princess Leia and her Rebel friends in their fight against Darth Vader and the Empire. ...

Get more Halloween candy with the Dark Side of The Force

Sure, pillowcases, grocery bags, and little plastic pumpkins will all do just fine as receptacles for the loot your kid's going to score this Halloween. But why be ordinary? Especially when they could use this Darth Vader helmet, and spend the night ...

May The Force be with you

It's finally getting colder in Austin. Yesterday Edan and I got out of the car and strolled through some random neighborhood, just to be outside in it. She kept complaining about the wind, but didn't want to go inside -- the gusts of chilly air...

How to make lightsabers from stuff you have lying around the house

After watching Star Wars as a kid, I desperately wanted to whip Imperial butt. I thought it'd be so cool to fight with lightsabers instead of Nerf guns, water balloons, or whatever else my friends and I used to pelt each other with. Sadly, that drea...

Back to school shopping? Try this Star Wars Chewbacca backpack

I was a total nerd in school. And, like most nerdy kids, I made the mistake of trying to be cool -- when, let's be honest, it was never going to happen. What I should've done was embrace my geekiness, proudly declaring to both the popular kids and th...

Back to school awesomeness: Darth Vader backpack

If you're thinking of getting your son or daughter some lame old Eddie Bauer backpack or glitzy Trapper Keeper like all the other kids -- think again. Why would let your child carry something so bland when he or she could, in fact, be the coolest kid...

Star Wars stroller update

Remember last month when I wrote about the Star Wars stroller that was all the buzz around the Internets? At the time, nobody knew who'd made that truly impressive piece of baby gear, but -- thanks to the endless searching by The Official Star War...

Diaper Wars: the best Star Wars parody ever

It appears that combining babies and Star Wars is all the rage these days. Just yesterday I discovered this guy, who tricked out his kid's stroller to look like an Imperial Walker, and today, Diaper Wars, a flash animation spoof of the first movie ...

Star Wars stroller: may The Force be with your baby

This is a work of genius. In an homage to the classic Star Wars films of yore, some guy tricked-out his kids' stroller to make it look like an ATAT Imperial Walker. Awesome, right? The problem is, no one knows who the guy is, or how he made it. Th...
