Star Wars Friends Of The Force Activity Book

So this isn’t actually a toy but it is something kids would have fun with, probably more so than a toy. This is a book I got from the no longer around Dollar Bazaar.

The Star Wars Friends of the Force Activity Book

This is the Star Wars coloring and activity book with 400 pages of coloring fun and it includes galactic-size activities. The Friends of the Force subtitle of the book sounds like something Disney might call the Star Wars Episode 7 movie they plan to make out after buying LucasFilm from George Lucas. Usually books go with the heroes prominently on the cover, but this time they went with Darth Vader, arguably the baddest character in the Star Wars universe.

The book focuses on Star Wars Episodes 1 and 4 with a few references to 6. The book has no flow whatsoever and is in almost no chronological order. Early on you get to color the ending scene from Episode 4 with them getting their medals only to find you have to do some activity to beat the death star in the first place several pages later. After that you move on to Episode 1 which I guess isn’t too far from what happened in real life.

Maybe they started working on an Episode 4 book, put it aside and then when Episode 1 came out, they slapped it all together with relevant Episode 1 material to sell it.

None of the pages in the book are colored, leaving that fun to the kids, including the activities on some pages. Activities include simple drawing exercises like finishing a picture or drawing a character from scratch using a grid to word games like word searches, crosswords and making words to fun activities like mazes and dot games.

There are also plenty of multiple choice activities which include picking who the character is to picking the “square” that fits the picture and the solutions to pretty much everything, except the mazes, are at the bottom of the page upside down.

It also mentions having tear and share pages, but who would want to tear them out of the book?

Overall, this is likely to keep kids busy for a while if they like coloring. Just make sure they have plenty of crayons or pencil crayons to color with.
