Chewbacca Mom Making Headlines Again

Candace Payne, who broke a Facebook Live record simply by donning a Chewbacca mask, was presented with a custom-made action figure doll by Hasbro when she and her family visited the company’s Rhode Island headquarters last Friday.

The doll features Payne in a Wookie outfit and a removable Chewbacca mask. It has 13 phrases, including, “That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask,” “I am such a happy Chewbacca,” and, of course, Payne’s signature laugh, a Hasbro spokeswoman said.

Payne is known for her facebook video that received more than 141 million views. She filmed herself wearing an electronic Chewbacca mask while parked in her car.

Sometimes all it takes is someone being silly to make others laugh, and in the world we live in that is a nice break from the realities of the everyday struggles. I am happy that Candace was able to bring smiles to so many people. Free
