Play with Edward

Didn’t know your teen could read until she devoured the entire Twilight series in a week? The phenomenon of Stephenie Meyer’s sexy vampire romances continues, with the latest movie New Moon sure to stoke those passions.

If perhaps you have not entered a bookshop, teen bedroom or movie house this year (how’s that going for you?), Twilight is the titillating tale of a mortal girl, Bella, who becomes involved in the world’s greatest romance with an exquisite immortal vampire called Edward Cullen. There’s also a tormented werewolf called Jacob, who nearly makes everything go bear-shaped for Bella.

Transport your teen (or mom!) with Twilight-inspired gifts for those kids of all ages who just yearn to join the Cullen family.

Wishes she could curl up with Edward on her pillow? Now she can with an Edward action figure that would make any Barbie’s heart melt. And if she prefers something more beefy, there’s a Jacob figure too.

If there’s a space of her wall not yet covered by posters of Edward looking moony or Jacob taking his shirt off, there’s a wide selection of them on

You can even buy the boyfriend a pair of Twilight cufflinks, and if you look at him in a certain light maybe he’ll look just a little bit Edwardish. You might have to sweet talk him into a cheap set of plastic vampire teeth and a vial of fake blood to get the full picture.

And if you have a tween who is just moving into the Twilight phase, stun her with a full set of the books, or an illustrated companion book to New Moon, the movie.
