All You Need to Know about the Creature Stall at SWGE

Are you a pet lover like myself?  Looking to adopt a galactic creature?   
Then look no further than the Creature Stall! 

At this exotic shop, located on Merchant Row, you’re able to take a look at various cargo and crates that are holding some of the rarest creatures that were acquired from across the galaxy – just waiting to be adopted!

Some of the animals looking for adoption include:
-       Kowakian Monkey-Lizards
-       Porg
-       Rathar
-       Tauntaun
-       Wampa
-       Puffer Pig
-       Neebray
-       Loth-Cat
-       Mynock
-       Krynka
-       Dewback
-       Worrt
-       Bantha

Each creature comes with a Tag showing their Name, Type, Home Planet and Diet.  These animals are from a planet in the Star Wars Universe and are important to the Star Wars story in some way.  All are interactive and most require batteries.  You can touch and feel each animal before you buy.  

So what did I decide to adopt?

Well, I chose a Loth-Cat!  The Loth-Cat was seen in the Disney Animated show Star Wars Rebels.  I really liked this particular animated series, and the Loth-Cats were apart of the story in many ways.  Since I love cats anyway, it was a natural attraction for me!  

You can see more on how the Loth-Cat interacts with its owner in the video at this link:

The price for the Loth-Cat was $44.99 with tax, the total was $48.48.  He was one of the more pricer pets, with the prices for all pets ranging from $16.00 to $69.99.

The cardboard cage was easily taken apart, and I transported him back home in my checked luggage.  Not all pets are this big-some are small, so definitely easy to pack!

The Creature Stall is really a great shop for the whole family, and I know you will find the perfect galactic pet to adopt!

Avoid the Candy and Get Moving

Trick or Treat - Move Your Feet

It's time for Fall Challenges! And I've been getting requests for challenges to get up and move AND to avoid the Halloween Candy!  So - Here you go!  Starting October 15th, we will Move Our Feet until Planksgiving!

The days are broken into White, Yellow or Orange Workout Days.

White:  We Do Squats and Walk/Run
Yellow:  We Do Push Ups and Walk/Run
Orange:  We do Crunches and Walk/Run

Most challenges are written by Fitness Gurus whose job is working out every day.  So, many of the challenges can be super intense and people fall off because of difficulty.   This Challenge is DIFFERENT.  You set your goals.  

1st you must Walk/Run every single day.  So, set your goal to be realistic.  Something that you know you can do every day.  

2nd, set your goal for Squats, Push UPs and Crunches that CHALLENGE you.  You don't have to do these every day, so pick a number that will stretch your abilities.

3rd, to avoid candy, we have a Bonus exercise, repeated 10 times, that you pick.  Pick something that you hate.

My Goals:

Run/Walk 2 Miles Every Day:   Even if it is raining, I can suffer 2 miles on the elliptical.

Squats:  100 Squats

Push Ups:  30 Push Ups.  

Crunches:  100 Crunches.

Bonus:  10 Burpees for every piece of candy I eat.  I HATE Burpees, so I will not be eating any candy.

That's it !  Pretty Simple!
