May The Plush Be With You!

I get absolutely ecstatic when people have baby showers, and those people are way into something as nerdy as I am. Necessity gifts are fine, but a stuffed lightsaber lasts forever! *bzzz!*

The "Baby Lightsaber" is made of dove gray broadcloth adorned with sheer black ribbon for the handle, with hand-embroidered texture details. The laser is a snuggably soft pale blue flannel, doubled up for stronger seams as I imagine in time this toy may receive some brutal sessions of playtime haha.

I'd love to sell this in the shop, but I'm not sure if it would offend Mr. George Lucas. I've seen lightsabers, lightsaber knock-offs and "lazer swords" all over Etsy. Anyone know anything about copyright laws with this stuff? If there are, a lot of people apparently don't know about it, and as far as I can tell, Etsy is fine with it.



  1. I would think that if you sold it as a plush movie inspired baby toy- not licensed in any way, and used copyrighted names like "Jedi", "lightsaber", and "Star Wars" as your "tags" then people would find the product easily and Lucasfilms would PROBABLY not send you a cease and desist letter.

  2. Oh, but if you find out the real answer, do tell! I have thought about selling some book and video game inspired items on Etsy.

  3. I have no idea the answer to your question, but feel compelled to point out that that's more than a little awesome. Very nicely done!!
