You’re supposed to use them for lazily floating around a pool on a hot summer’s day, but in no time at all those long foam noodles quickly become a sword you can safely swing around like a samurai, ninja and now a Jedi, thanks to Swim Ways.

These Star Wars Noodle Lightsabers are nothing more than long tubes of hollow foam with graphics wrapped around one end, but that’s all a Star Wars fan really needs to shell out $US20 ($26) for a three-pack.
