Probably the best thing (and only thing) to come out of the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was the introduction of the dual blade lightsaber. With that said, what little boy (or big boy in my case) is not going to love falling asleep to the warm glow of a lightsaber, it is just too perfect. Uncle Milton really did me a favor, not only does it make me a hero to my son to help him build his lightsaber night light but I get to further introduce him to the Star Wars lore. Check out my assessment and assembly of the room light below:
Also included as part of the instructions, is a color poster with various cool Star Wars facts about Darth Maul (the bad guy who wields the double lightsaber) as well as a brief history of the character. In addition, the poster breaks out some real science information regarding electricity and how some of the technology in real life can relate to lightsabers.
Rock loves the lightsaber, I have had to put it pretty high in his room so he couldn’t get his hands on it. Thankfully, the light automatically turns itself off after a certain period of time, so the battery life is extended. In addition, what you can’t really tell from the video is the size of the lightsaber, it is almost three feet long.
The Uncle Milton Star Wars Science Darth Maul Lightsaber room light retails for $40 and can be found in most major retailers.
Disclaimer: I received the Darth Maul Lightsaber night light for review. This post is my unbiased opinion.
