EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Before you set off on your intergalactic adventures, you need a co-pilot. And the best one in the galaxy is Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie, based on the Wookiee character Chewbacca from the Star Wars movies. This interactive toy uses Hasbro's FurReal technology to give it more than 100 sound and motion combinations, including facial expressions, head motions, and arm movements, all activated by touch, sound, and motion.

Kids can pat Chewie's head, press his tummy, or speak into the microphone on the front of the toy for different responses. You should even see what he does when you play music. (Spoiler: It kind of looks like he's dancing.) For an arm-raising roar, press and hold his tummy for a few seconds. If you press his tummy a few times in a row, you'll unlock a hidden surprise. (Spoiler: it's a burp.) 

Moving Chewie around and giving him a shake will also elicit more sounds and reactions. And when it's time for Chewie to take a rest, lie him on his back, and he'll close his eyes and go to sleep after a few minutes. 

This furry friend looks just like the character from the movies, complete with bandolier. It stands 16 inches tall, but you can pose the Wookiee's legs to make him sit.

Is It Fun?

Watching this toy's facial movements as it makes its signature Wookiee sounds is really cool, and kids who are Star Wars fans will like having their own Chewbacca to play with in their own Star Wars universe. It's easy to interact with Chewie, and we think kids are going to have a blast defending the galaxy with their sidekick friend and seeing everything Chewie can do.

Who It’s For

The Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie is for ages 4 and up. This will be a fun and interactive toy for young Star Wars fans.

What To Be Aware Of

The toy comes with four AA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before you play for best results. You also want to make sure you switch the toy from Try-Me to On for its full features.
