Chewbacca’s Activity Book

Completely forgot this existed, and I totally had one. We definitely made the cookies. I don’t remember if they were good.

I made that Tie Fighter for sure, but that was FAR from my only paper & cardboard spaceship.

I made cardboard ships with multiple levels, wings, and rectractable landing gear. These things had control rooms with panels and chairs, and some rooms had sliding doors for privacy. For years, even long after I got out of the action figure game (before rejoining it as an adult), I saw any cardboard box that entered my sight as a potential ship, with designs popping into my head as soon as I saw it.

And somehow not a whisper, not even a photograph, of any of those things survive.

Which makes me really want to build some now.
