(Inside: Snarky, smart, beautiful and tough all in one breath. Totally a great icon for our little girls to look up to. Makes sense that we need a little Rey in our life for those little gals out there just learning their connection to the force. These 29 Rey Gift Ideas from Star Wars are your thought-starters for just that.)
She’s more than just the newest female lead in the oldest, most epic space opera of all time.
She’s a humble, torn, strong, beautiful and tough-as-nails heroin that will stand tall in the hearts and minds of all our little girls growing up with Rey in the spotlight.
I say this in all seriousness.
When I was little, I pretended to be Princess Leia and sometimes Han Solo.
Because, frankly, Leia was a little, I don’t know, kind of princess-ey.
And I needed a break from that–because princesses are nice and all, but no one wants to be treated like that all the time.
Sometimes you just want to be a badass girl all in your own right.
Rey lets our little girls do that.
They don’t have to wear white and beg others for rescue (“Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”)
And though Leia always seemed to do as much rescuing herself as she was rescued, Rey has a different kind of freedom.
She allows our girls to pretend to be the badass–and leave all the pomp behind.
Plus, she’s awfully cool and snarky–which makes her all the more enjoyable.
So, is it any wonder that I gathered up these 29 Rey Gift Ideas to fuel my two girls’ imagination?
No question as to why.
Now, get your pin on and make sure you have these 29 Rey Gift Ideas on hand when it’s time for the next movie to hit…because you’re going to need them.
