The BEST Baby Yoda is Hasbro’s animatronic cutie

The Child, affectionately known as Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian, is getting an epic set of toys and merchandise. During a Disney event Thursday in New York ahead of Toy Fair 2020, toys and more debuted for the newest Star Wars icon.

Themed items shown off Thursday include an animatronic Baby Yoda that naps in his sleeping pod, a Build A Bear edition of The Child and a Funko figure (which is not due to ship until April 20) — along with clothing, costumes and jewelry.

Meanwhile, Hasbro’s animatronic edition, all but certain to be the most in-demand holiday gift item of 2020, will arrive in the fall for $60 but is available for preorder now from major retailers.

In addition to the little creature himself, sets based on the Disney Plus show revealed Thursday include a Lego construction set of the Razor Crest ship and Lego BrickHeadz of both The Mandalorian and The Child. Themed versions of the board games Operation and Trouble were also shown off.

The Baby Yoda toy wave comes after a holiday season that didn’t have much ready for the character, due to the creative choice to keep him secret until the show aired in mid-November. Show creator Jon Favreau said in a release that while it led to a limited amount of possible merchandise in November and December, it allowed for something different in an age of internet spoilers.

The Star Wars event is among several early announcements leading into Toy Fair 2020, which officially kicks off Saturday at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.
