In case you live on another planet and were unaware, there is a new Star Wars film coming out towards the end of the month.
Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is released on May 25th 2018, is (as the name might suggest) the story of a young Han Solo. The story centres on him meeting his Wookiee sidekick Chewbacca, and the pair meeting the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in the days before Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia.
As Disney now own the rights to all Star Wars movies, the new ones have been very family friendly which has been great for my husband and his early indoctrination of our children into his Star Wars cult.
This means that Star Wars toys are ever so popular.
With the smallest’s birthday on the horizon I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to review the new Chewbacca collection from Posh Paws which are being released to celebrate the new film.
If there’s one thing you know about Wookiees, apart from the noise they make, it is the fact that they are covered in fur. This makes them the perfect choice for soft toy friends!
Let’s take a closer look at the range.
10-inch Chewbacca plush toys
He has an RRP of £14.99 and is a perfect bed time friend, being soft all over with no hard plastic parts.
His label says he is suitable from birth however personally I’d say because he sheds a little, which is to be expected really, he isn’t suitable for very young babies. It’s not like they can appreciate Star Wars anyway… I’m sure however that he will be perfect for my son… If he gets to play with him!
You can purchase the 10-inch Chewbacca plush from Amazon here.
8-inch Chewbacca and Yoda plush toys
Of course it’s not just Chewbacca who makes a great soft toy, and this 8 inch Yoda (RRP £9.99) is a great fun squashy friend. They are suitable from birth and I have found this Chewie to moult less than his bigger counterpart.

Star Wars bag clips
We received one Chewbacca and one R2D2. Rather than furry, they have a soft material finish and to be honest I prefer the fluffy Chewbaccas, but I do like the little R2D2 very much. They are suitable from one year old.
Not a Chewbacca fan? Each of the new Posh Paws Star Wars collection items are available as other star wars characters including Stormtrooper, Yoda, Porgs and Darth Vader.

We received these Posh Paws Star Wars Chewbacca Plush Toys free for the purposes of this review but words and pictures are my own.
