Hey Star Wars fans, we found a way you can secretly have your very own astromech droid without actually buying one for yourself (not that there's anything wrong with that). Buy this littleBits Droid Inventor Kit for your kids, and pretend like it's totally for them and not you.

The Droid Inventor Kit lets kids build and control their very own R2-D2 droid. The kit, which is recommended for kids ages eight and up, comes with an app that provides assembly instructions, tutorials, and over 16 missions.
With the simple wave of a hand, kids can guide the droid as if they're a Jedi using the Force. And using self navigation, the droid can detect obstacles and change course all on its own. Also, covert messages can be recorded then sent off to be securely delivered.
The kit comes with custom stickers to help personalize the droid, as well as the option to use household items and craft materials to customize it even more so.
Add an additional droid part, which is included in the kit, and watch R2-D2 draw secret messages or maps.
The R2-D2 Droid Inventor Kit is available on Amazon for $99.95. It'll make the perfect beginning of school gift for your kids (or for you).
