Publisher's Summary:
R2-D2 has a mission to get Princess Leia's distress message to Alderaan. Join him as he escapes a starship, hurtles through space, navigates a desert, gets kidnapped by Jawas and much more.
Features a book with fun activities including mazes, word games, puzzles and lots of creative fun. Also includes press-out pieces which slot together to make a R2-D2 model perfect for recreating scenes, playing games and displaying to all your friends.


While the activities in the attached story book primarily consist of puzzles, wordsearches, spot-the-difference etc, may feel like filler in what appears to be a rather expensive children's book, it is the enjoyment of the construction of the paper kit, especially when shared with your child - some adult assistance may be required for younger children, such as when assembling the trickier droid legs - that makes the price tag more appealing. Witnessing their delight during and after construction is sheer pleasure. And it should be noted that while this may be described as a "paper kit", it is actually formed from several millimetre thick card. So when R2 is completed, the 26cm high kit is of a sturdy construction.
This is a fun activity book that will appeal to Star Wars fans of all ages - especially those of R2-D2, but the greatest pleasure to begotten from this book is to share those activities with your child.

R2-D2's Droid Workshop: Make Your Own R2-D2 from Egmont Books is available now in the UK.
