  • A Mighty Girl's top picks of books, toys, clothing, and room decor featuring Rey!

    For decades, many girls have loved the exciting stories of the Star Wars universe. But whether they were fans of the original rebel princess, Princess Leia, or eagerly followed the adventures of other Star Wars characters, like Padme Amidala, Ahsoka Tano, or Sabine Wren, it's often been challenging to find merchandise that celebrated the characters that they loved.

    With the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — and the revelation that the film's star, Rey, was female — excitement began to build. But despite Rey's prominence in the film, fans were dismayed to discover that products featuring her were few and far between. This led to a hashtag campaign, #WheresRey, dedicated to seeking better representation of female characters — in particular Rey — in Star Wars merchandise. Fortunately, companies began to respond to the demand and provide more options for Rey fans.

    In advance of the highly anticipated sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in this blog post, we're showcasing a variety of books, toys, clothing, and decor featuring Rey, as she is shown in both films. Whether you're seeking a storybook for a young fan, an action figure depicting Rey during her Jedi training, or artwork featuring Rey, there are many more options for all ages. Now, fans of this courageous and determined Mighty Girl character can read stories, play with toys, dress up, and decorate the walls — all with Rey! Continue reading Continue reading

    To celebrate Wonder Woman's rise, we've put together a blog post showcasing our favorite Wonder Woman-themed books, toys, costumes, and clothing for both children and adults.

  • A Mighty Girl's top picks of games for children and teens where you work together to win!

    Most people associate board games with competition: players who work against one another in hopes of being the ultimate winner. And while these games can teach important skills — including how to be a good winner or loser — there's one skill they don't teach: cooperation. Working together as a team is an equally important lesson to learn, and it's also a great way to play when you've got a mixed group of different ages and abilities playing together!

    Cooperative board games are becoming increasingly common, and they provide a totally different flavor for a family or classroom game session. To introduce you to fun twist on the classic board game, in this blog post, we've featured 40 of favorite cooperative games for all ages! From simple games that encourage preschoolers to cooperate in order to achieve a common goal to complex games in which teens and adults have to strategize together and collaborate to complete a mission, these games do more than provide an evening's entertainment: they create a sense of teamwork and unity that players will love.

    For a wide variety of logic and strategy games, single-player games, competitive party games, and more, visit our extensive Games Collection. Continue reading Continue reading
