For generations, the lightsaber has been know across the galaxies as the weapon of heroes.  Elegant, swift, lightweight and very effective in the right hands.  One could assume such a design would never be improved upon.  However, with version 2.0 we have added an amazing new feature!  Now you do not have to cry if it gets wet from a spilled Banta milk, or wipe off all that Tauntaun spit.  It is perfectly safe if you plan on visiting Otoh Gunga.  The new and improved Lightsaber 2.0 is waterproof and, it floats!

Glow Stick Lightsabers: an Elegant Weapon for a more Civilized Age

At last count our family had about a dozen or so of various inexpensive lightsabers, 1 of the mid-grade, and 3 of the high-end ones (OK, full disclosure, those last 3 are not the kids’…).  You wouldn’t think we needed more.  However, none of them worked for the General Grievous Halloween costume we did last year (instructions to come soon!).  We needed smaller, lighter, and continually glowing – so we had to get creative.  These are kid-sized, inexpensive, glow in the dark, AND they are pretty whackable (won’t break, or hurt you too badly when you get hit in the knees).  That’s a pretty hard combo to beat!  Top that off with being super simple to make, so the kids can do most of the work.
