Did you grow up watching Star Wars? With the revival of the Star Wars saga, many of us have become excited to share the fandom with our children. This means that not only do we have adults collecting memorabilia from their favorite films, but we also have kids wanting to have toys they can actively play with from the same films.
This gives us a lot of room for overlap, where the entire family may want to play with and enjoy merchandise from the Star Wars franchise. We’ve taken a look at what’s available and these are our top eleven picks for family-friendly Star Wars toys.
Star Wars Drone Toys By Propel
I think we’ve all fantasized about how cool it would be to fly an X-Wing, or a TIE Fighter, or perhaps the Millennium Falcon as we watch these iconic movies. Now they’ve been brought to life in the form of miniature sized drones. Propel’s high-flying lineup consists of three Star Wars Battle Drones, the Star Wars 74-Z Speeder Bike, the Star Wars TIE Advanced X1, and the Star Wars T-65 X-Wing Starfighter.
They are controlled with a 2.4Ghz remote control which also pairs with your smartphone over Bluetooth. With the free Propel Star Wars Battle Drones app (iOS/Android), you can run both training simulations and live battle tracking. They have both infrared and visible light emitters and receivers, for use when battling with friends or family.

Revell SnapTite Build & Play Imperial Star Destroyer Building Kit
Another kit the family can enjoy. This kit allows teens and adults in the family to build their very own imperial star destroyer from scratch. The end result is highly playable and very attractive, although not really recommended for children that are very young, due to its small parts.
