Build-A-Bear Is Releasing A Baby Yoda “Mandalorian” Toy

If you’re a fan of “The Mandalorian” then you no doubt have been oo-ing and ah-ing over every single scene that includes ‘Baby Yoda’ (who isn’t actually Yoda as a baby, but whatever—we can all pretend). With this raging obsession over Baby Yoda—Baby Yoda cookies! Baby Yoda Sims! Baby Yoda fan cams!—comes a serious demand for merch. Mostly from fully-grown human beings. 

The only issue? There wasn’t exactly much merch to sell people at first—specifically so that people wouldn’t start leaking plotline information. Here’s a video of the show’s director explaining why they held off on merch for so long:

The good news? The time has come for Baby Yoda merch—and who better to create a stuffed plush force-wielding Yoda than Build-A-Bear?

Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John told the ICR Conference, “I’m excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined.”

The toy, which will be called The Child, will be available in the next few months. Jedis, get ready. 

Fans don’t need to use the force to bust those Build-A-Bear doors down. They’re lined up and ready. 

And Build-A-Bear seems prepared as well (we hope):

And let’s face it—there is an OVERWHELMING number of grown adults who are ready to build themselves The Child.

Parents, it might even be UNSAFE for you to bring your child to Build-A-Bear. Think Walmart on Black Friday.

Some parents might even ditch their kids to go it alone. (No judgment).

People are VERY serious about this. The Internet is NOT ashamed.

And just to whet your appetite, here’s Build-A-Bear’s CEO holding The Child. *Cries out in excitement.*
