Itty Bittys came to the UK, in Hallmark stores, last year but the Star Wars additions are only just making their way over here, amidst Star Wars fever and, my goodness, I'm so pleased they're here/coming.
The range consists of the four that you see above, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Yoda and Chewbacca, as well as Storm Troopers, C3PO, R2D2 and Rey. The majority come straight from the original movies, but Kylo and Rey are fantastic additions to help celebrate the newest instalment, 'The Force Awakens'.
Chewbacca - The ultimate in cuteness.
Darth Vader - If even Vader can be cute then you know you're on to something.
Kylo Ren - A really impressive representation of the character, with added cute.
Yoda - I can't, yet, decide if Yoda or Chewie is my favourite.
I was, originally, only expecting to be sent two of these so to be sent all four of our possible choices was incredibly exciting, especially as these are as cute in person as I expected them to be. They're only small, but that makes them perfect for smaller hands (though no bad size for big hands too) and also sets them up nicely for collecting, it'll take much much longer to use up all of your space, which means you can get more!
These little guys are £6, each, or 2 for £10 for in Gold Crown stores. which is a real bargain - You can check where your closest Hallmark store is here. I, genuinely. didn't think we had a Hallmark store, here, but it seems we do. It's in a part of the town that I just couldn't get to (what with the fact that I rarely leave the house), so I'm still incredibly grateful for having been sent these, but it's well worth checking your closest as they might not be in an obvious place.
As if getting four, instead of two, Star Wars Ittys wasn't enough. the lovely PR team for Hallmark were incredibly kind and sent us some of the super hero range too! So if Star Wars isn't your thing, but the cuteness has captured you, it's well worth checking these out to see if the other ranges are more your sort of thing. I think we'll be saving Superman for Oliver, and I'm also planning buying him a Storm Trooper and a Yoda (plus I may need a few for myself, oh dear!)
