Amazon currently offers the Kano Star Wars Force Coding Kit for $28.24 shipped. Having originally sold for $80, it’s been dropping in price since the holidays and is now down to a new Amazon low. Beating our previous mention from December by $2, today’s offer saves you up to 65% overall. Much like other releases from Kano, the company’s Force Coding Kit has you assemble a Bluetooth-enabled device that lets you get started with programming. In this case, it’s a motion-sensing beacon which allows you write code to amplify your Force powers. There are a variety of guided coding challenges here, which let you interact with lovable characters like BB-8, Porgs, and more. Rated 3.8/5 stars from over 110 customers and you can learn more in our announcement coverage. Head below for more.

If you’re looking for a more basic way to have your little one start tinkering, Kano’s Motion Sensor Kit is a more affordable alternative at $16. You’ll of course ditch the Star Wars theming here, but will get a similar overall programming experience.
