When Daisy Ridley opened the R2-D2 suitcase that Disney sent her, the star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens couldn’t have known what was about to happen.

Out spilled a massive haul of the new Star Wars toys that go on sale at midnight as part of Disney’s Force Friday event—and many of them featured Ridley, in character as the desert scavenger Rey, front and center.

Ridley shared her excitement at receiving the toys in two adorable Instagram videos. Her dog might not have thought much of the whole experience, but she positively squealed when she picked up a Rey figure.

Ridley and her The Force Awakens costar John Boyega have been lighting up the Internet with their behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars stardom in the social-media age. We’re not sure what’s better: seeing the new trailers, or seeing them freak out about the trailers just like the rest of us.
