Illuminate your desk with a little help from the light side of the force with this R2-D2 mini light. Simply push down on the lovable astromech droid’s head to make the cylinder light up and brighten up the area immediately around it. This portable light is handy in the dark, but also looks cool throughout the day thanks to its iconic Star Wars design. Not only that, but it makes official sounds from the movie every time you switch it on...

Hmmm, I may have a bit of an R2-D2 problem. I don't know how, but over the year's I've managed to acquire quite a lot of R2-D2 memorabilia some cool, some not so good. I even managed to get suckered into buying a full-size R2-D2 lamp/table for the office last year. So pretty much anything made to resemble R2-D2 I almost instantly love (because I still haven't grown up yet).

When this R2-D2 light arrived for review I was already won over before I got it out of the box. It's 12cm tall and takes 3xAAA batteries. It's more of a mood lamp than an actual light to brighten up a dark corner. But it looks cool at night or in the day. But the highlight is that when you switch it on (by pushing down on it) it makes a series of R2-D2 beeps and whistles.

It's the perfect stocking filler for that Star Wars fan who has everything, and it creates a romantic, ambient light in any room.
