The Millennium Falcon: Smuggler Run will take "Star Wars" lovers on a mission to hyperspace while controlling the most famous ship in the galaxy and placing guests in three different crew roles.

Rhea Wahlberg is an international fashion model, a mother of four, wife of a-list actor Mark Wahlberg, and now she can add entrepreneur to that list.

Rhea has created a line of handbags that are both stunning and affordable. The line is called "Ella Grace by Rhea Wahlberg."

"I literally sit down at my breakfast table and design everything. I do it by pencil,” she said. “The bucket bag is the 'Rhea bag' and that’s probably my favorite one. I really love the red one with the gold studs."

The line is named after her two daughters, and it’s designed with a mom's busy life in mind. Many of the bags are crossbody versions, specifically made to be hands-free.

When asked what it’s like to be a member of the Wahlberg family, she says, "It's fun! Everyone supports everyone so much in Mark’s family, which is one of the things I love."

Rhea says people may be surprised to learn she’s a die-hard Patriots fan. In fact, she calls Robert Kraft her "secret boyfriend."

"He's amazing. I love him. He's just so charming, and such a sweet man," she said.

When asked what Mark thinks about that, she said, “he thinks it’s hilarious because they are very close.”

Mark recently gushed about his beloved wife on the red carpet of the Boston premiere of his new movie “Instant Family,” saying of Rhea, “She’s my hero. She does it all. The kids aren’t as grateful as they should be but they will be later on. I make sure she knows how much I appreciate her, and how grateful I am that she is the machine she is.”

So what does he think of her bags?

"I don't have one myself, but they’re fantastic," Mark said.

The Seaport district is growing rapidly. So what’s inside those huge towers overlooking some of Boston’s best views? NBC10 Boston got an inside look at “The Benjamin,” “Via,” and the soon to be completed “EchelonSeaport."

“The Benjamin” and “Via” are sister properties in the heart of the Seaport. Both offer easy access to a variety of businesses and restaurants. Their penthouse levels have a private elevator. Penthouses in both properties have a rental range from $9,000 to $10,000 a month. They offer views of the city and the water.

“EchelonSeaport” is currently being constructed. The first tower is expected to be completed next year. Its penthouses are only available for purchase.

<![CDATA[Carnegie Deli to Return for 1 Week With 99¢ Sandwiches]]> Mon, 03 Dec 2018 21:55:53 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/205*120/020609+Carnegie+Deli.jpg

The iconic Carnegie Delicatessen is reopening for one week in December, and it'll be serving up 99¢ sandwiches and sides for even less.

The Jewish deli on Seventh Avenue in Midtown closed in 2016, after 79 years of serving up heaps of cured meat to tourists, theater patrons and workaday New Yorkers. 

But from December 1 to 8, the makers of that ridiculously oversized sandwich will be back with an eight-day popup at 201 Lafayette Street to promote the second season of Amazon Prime Video's period comedy-drama "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." The show is about a 1958 Manhattan housewife who decides to try her hand at standup comedy.

Playing to the theme, the Carnegie Deli pop-up promises to transport patrons back to the 50s. "While it may be 2018 on the outside, it's 1958 on the inside -- the decor, the jukebox, the photobooth and even the menu," the pop-up's website says.

On the menu -- two sandwiches, each 99¢, iconic black-and-white cookies for 50¢ each, cheesecake, pickles and more.

The Carnegie opened in 1937, drawing its name from Carnegie Hall just a block up 7th Avenue.

Fans lined up all week in December 2016 for a last bite at Carnegie Deli when it closed. The restaurant got a star turn in Woody Allen's 1984 film "Broadway Danny Rose" and remained a stop until the end for out-of-towners looking for the classic New York deli experience.

The place, with its walls lined with photos of celebrities who had eaten there, screamed old New York, from its vintage neon sign, to the items on the menu: slices of cheesecake, knishes, tongue and chopped liver and $30 Reuben sandwiches.

The latest edition of the deli is considerably cheaper, so get in quick. Seating is first come, first served, but reservations can be made for parties up to 4 on the website.

<![CDATA[5 Fun Things to Try at the New FAO Schwarz Store in NYC]]> Fri, 16 Nov 2018 16:38:30 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/Ribbon_Cutting_FAO_Schwarz_1280x720_1372732483987.jpg

The holiday season is officially kicking off in NYC with the relaunch of iconic toy store FAO Schwarz, which reopened its doors early Friday morning.

And what better a place to let kids — and adults — have their imaginations run wild, with everything from cooking up gummies with candy-making kits, building personalized stuffed animals, creating science experiments, designing customized race cars, and of course playing on the oversized piano famously known for being played by Tom Hanks in the movie “Big.”

In a toy store like no other, there’s too much to do, so we picked the five best things to try in the new FAO Schwarz that you absolutely cannot miss. 

Discovery Science Lab

For the curious minds who can’t help be fascinated by science, the Discovery Science Lab is the place to see employees create cool experiments and chemical volcanic eruptions. The #MindBlown Discovery Lab demonstrates all the science kits FAO Schwarz sells round the clock, so customers can see exactly what all the science kits they sell do. Whether it’s building rockets, learning about rocks, or looking at some super interesting slides under a microscope, the Discovery Lab is a great place to interact with real-life science experiments that you can take home with you.

Alex Bath and Hair Spa

For the child who is all about beauty and self-care, the Alex Bath and Hair Spa lets you take control by allowing full customization to any of the nail, hair, bath, or skin products they sell. Take a seat for a manicure or a glittering hair do with the help of the FAO Schwarz beauty employees, who can help add hair chalk, dye, and glitter to help you get into the holiday spirit. Don’t worry! It’s all washable. If that’s not your thing, create your own DIY lotion or bath bomb by combining different colors and scents to create your one of a kind beauty product. Washable tattoos, body stencils, and body glitter are also available to take home with you. The best part? It’s all scented!

DIY Race Car

Have a need for speed? At the Race Track the FAO Schwarz pit crew will help you build your very own customizable racer, where details are decided by you. Choose the car, color, make, model, and all the little details in between to take home something specially designed for you. Before you go, the pit crew will add the final touch of a motor so that you can actually drive your car with a remote control once leaving the store. If you’re too eager to wait, take a try at the mini race tracks specifically set up so you can race against other customers in the store.

Marvin’s Magic Corner

Hoping to learn a few new tricks? Marvin’s Magic Corner is perfect for anyone interested in figuring out all the secrets of magicians. FAO Schwarz’s employees do round-the-clock demonstrations on how each trick works, so that you can learn a little bit even before you take the magic home! With kits on card tricks, disappearing rabbits, and mind reading games, you too can learn the in’s and outs’ of magic, and are sure to have something to show to your relatives this holiday season.

Adoption Center

The Baby Adoption Center takes interactive to another level. With the help of “nurses,” kids can choose and adopt a baby doll, to name and then take home. There’s a few steps they have to take first. With all new babies, interviews and adoption paperwork must be filled out, before a customer can select which baby they want. Not only do you get to leave the store with a brand new doll and carrier, but you also have the paper work to prove that you own her! Additional accessories like clothes, cribs, and beauty accessories are also sold so that customers can keep the fun coming even once they bring their new baby home.

<![CDATA[WATCH Releases 'Worst Toys' List for 2018 Holiday Season]]> Wed, 14 Nov 2018 10:54:54 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/219*120/111318+pillow+pet+thumb.jpg

Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, Pillow Pets and Nerf guns may seem like good holiday gifts for children, but one group is warning otherwise.

World Against Toys Causing Harm, also known as WATCH, released its 2018 top 10 list of "worst" holiday toys and featured all of the above. The nonprofit organization says the toys included in its list pose choking hazards, risk blunt injuries and have the potential to cause facial injuries.

[[500390751,C]]

For more than four decades, WATCH has released these lists to warn parents of the potential dangers that come with their children’s selection of toys on their holiday wish lists.

This year’s list includes:

  • Nickelodeon Nella Princess Knight Pillow Pets Sleeptime Lites for its "potential for ingestion and battery-related injuries"
  • Nerf Vortex VTX Praxis Blaster for its "potential for eye injuries"
  • Marvel Black Panther Slash Claw for its "potential for eye and facial injuries"
  • Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel Superstar Blade for its "potential for blunt force and eye injuries"
  • Cabbage Patch Kids Dance Time Doll for its "potential for choking injuries"
  • Zoo Jamz Xylophone for its "potential for ingestion and choking injuries"
  • Nici Wonderland Doll: Miniclara the Ballerina for its "potential for choking injuries"
  • Stomp Rocket Ultra Rocket for its "potential for eye, face and other impact injuries"
  • Cutting Fruit for its "potential for puncture and blunt force injuries"
  • Chien Á Promener Pull Along Dog for its "potential for entanglement and strangulation injuries"

WATCH presented its list on Tuesday at Franciscan Children’s Hospital in Boston.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports an estimated 240,000 toy-related injuries happened in the U.S. in 2016. Between January 2017 and October 2018, an estimated 3.5 million units of toys were recalled in the U.S. and in Canada, according to WATCH.

[[465548833,C]]

The Toy Association disagrees with the non-profit's claims.

"Each year, WATCH's dangerous toys list needlessly frightens parents and caregivers," the Toy Association said in a statement. "By law, all toys sold in the United States must meet 100+ rigorous safety tests and standards."

Wicked Cool Toys, which manufactures the Cabbage Patch doll that was named in WATCH's list, said safety is their priority.

"We take safety very seriously, and all of the products we bring to market have been through and passed all required safety testing," their statement said. 

The manufacturer reminds consumers that all toys sold in the U.S. are required to exceed safety testing before hitting store shelves.

Hasbro, which manufactures the Nerf Vortex and the Black Panther claw, also said their top priority is safety.

"Our products comply with all applicable global safety laws, regulations and standards, including those enforced by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission," Hasbro said in a statement. 

PlayMonster manufactures the Cutting Fruit set and also said they take consumer safety seriously and that it is their priority.

As for the Miniclara the Ballerina doll, a NICI representative said the toy is safe for children.

"This plush kitten is fixed to a plush bag with a 5mm polyester woven tape," a NICI representative said in a statement. "Because the product passed the physical tests necessary to receive the allowance to be sold to consumers we are confident that the product is safe."

Vtech says WATCH's list unnecessarily inflicts concern onto guardians.

"This dangerous toys list, released annually before the holiday shopping season, is biased, inaccurate and greatly misinforms the public, needlessly frightening parents and caregivers," a Vtech spokesperson said in a statement.

"Toymakers and The Toy Association are committed to toy safety year-round," the Toy Association said. "These efforts include providing useful tips for families and caregivers to help them choose age-appropriate toys and ensure safe play."

Toy manufacturers CJ Products, D & L Company and Janod; Juratoys did not immediately comment on the list.

Toys that were featured in 2017’s list included a Wonder Woman sword, fidget spinners, a Spider-Man drone and more.

The 72-foot tall, 12-ton Norway Spruce that will be the 2018 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was cut down from its home in upstate New York Thursday and will head to the city for its new home in the Plaza. 

The tree, which is 45-feet in diameter, comes from the Wallkill home of Shirley Figueroa and Lissette Gutierrez, who gave the spruce a last hug before it was chopped down.

Crews then hoisted the tree on a flatbed to make its roughly 75-mile journey to midtown Manhattan, where it is expected to arrive on Saturday.

"After we bought the house, the previous owner told us, 'Hey, by the way, the tree in the yard? Rockefeller Center has been scouting it," Figueroa told News 4. "When she told me that, I was like, 'Oh, that would be cool,' but I [didn't] believe it. Until they came knocking on the door." 

About 50,000 LED lights and a new Swarovski crystal star designed by Daniel Libeskind will adorn the tree, which will be lit on Nov. 28. 

It will remain on display until Jan. 7.

Last year's tree, also a Norway Spruce, came from State College, Pennsylvania. 

The first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was put up in 1931 by workers building the complex during the Great Depression. The first official tree lighting there was in 1933.

Figueroa and Gutierrez said they plan to replace the tree with new ones. 

"I believe if you take something down, you gotta put something back, so we're definitely going to plant... a few more trees, because she took up a lot of space," Figueroa said. 

While the two homeowners said it was difficult to part with the tree, both were excited to see it in all its glory at Rockefeller Center. 

"It's been a little tougher for me," Gutierrez said. "But it's for a great cause — and everybody's going to see it," she said, noting that the tree will be donated to Habitat for Humanity and used for home-building lumber after the Christmas season.

"I grew up going to Rockefeller Center every year, and I've only missed a few years that I couldn't get down because of work," Figueroa added.

"It's going to be really amazing to be down there and know that the tree came from our yard."
