Vintage Jabba the Hutt Children’s Bathrobe by Wilker Bros

August 20, 2010

This doesn’t actually have the manufacturer on it anywhere, but it looks identical to this Ewok robe listed on the Star Wars Collectors Archive (with the exception of the color), so I’m assuming it was made by Wilker Bros. Before this cropped up on eBay, I didn’t even know it existed. I can’t seem to find any references to it online, or even in Gus and Duncan’s Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles, so I think I may contact them about adding it.

In any case, it’s a blue and navy kids’ bathrobe with a picture of Jabba the Hutt on the left breast. I got this used from the original owner and the decoration looks a little faded. I don’t know if that’s just the way it always looked, or if it faded after use and washing.

One thing I love about this robe is that it has no other characters other than Jabba. They obviously felt that Jabba had enough “star power” to make kids want to buy it. Of course, when you consider how unusual this item seems to be, it may be that it didn’t sell particularly well.

Finding this makes me want to find the matching pajamas even more…
