Star Wars for preschoolers

Introducing our children to the films that have influenced our lives can be both a hugely rewarding and terrifying experience. Let over-enthusiasm get the better of us by introducing a film too early and the child could be put off for life – disaster. We decided it was time to introduce three-year-old Tilly to Star Wars. Picking through the films carefully we put the DVD on and got a reaction we never expected.

The speech of two-year olds is the stuff of adorably cute memories that, if your family is anything like mine, are repeated for decades. Take bizarre names for people and objects, add a dash of accidental comedy genius and combine with an infant’s uniquely surreal take on the universe and you’ve got the recipe for an abundance of special moments.

Not since Tilly finally got around to walking have I anticipated a stage in her development quite so much as her starting preschool. She’ll be socialising with peers, playing, learning and giving me some much needed time to get on top of everything else. After a tough year, I’m counting on it being the change I need to claw back some control from a toddler-led life.
