Cutest Star Wars Gadget Yet: R2-D2 Measuring Set (Clever Video Too!)
Still the most memorable robot in film history, R2-D2 has also become a popular embodiment for a variety of toys and gadgets. This set of R2-D2 Measuring Cups and Spoons pays tribute to the movie star in its likeness and adds a surprise element to your kitchen counter. This Lucasfim licensed charmer makes a super gift for a fan too!
Made of food grade ABS plastic, the R2-D2 body is composed of 4 measuring cups - 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 cup - and its arms are measuring spoons - 1/4 and 1/2 tsp and 1/3 tbsp (ha!). There's a full tablespoon nestled in its dome along with a 1/2 cup. Virtually every part of the old boy has a useful purpose, even his frame, which, of course, becomes a storage area for the measuring utensils. He'd be proud to know that.
Now, watch how you can put R2-D2 to use....
Of course you would never put R2-D2 in a microwave or dishwasher, and likewise, his Measuring Set likeness doesn't belong in them either. Worth a bit of pampering, don't you think? ThinkGeek, exclusively.
