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.

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.

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.
