Baby Yoda Plushie Revealed By Build-A-Bear Workshop
The Mandalorian has been a huge hit with fans, due in part to the show’s adorable Child; or “Baby Yoda” as fans have come to call him. While merchandise for the Star Wars series was deliberately held back as not to spoil anything in the show, there’s been a trickle of goods arriving in the weeks since, allowing fans to get their fix of the adorable creature as well as the rest of the show’s cast. Now, Baby Yoda is planned to be unleashed upon all of humanity as an incredibly soft Build-A-Bear plush.
During the ICR conference earlier this week, Build-A-Bear CEO, Sharon Price John explained that the company was excited to be one of the first to bring a Baby Yoda product to the market–all while holding a cute and cuddly-looking plushie of The Child. “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,” John announced via Business Insider. “We now will have The Child, also known as Baby Yoda.”
Build a Bear Baby Yoda will be coming in the next few months

According to John, the plush will be arriving sometime within the next few months, though, no specific date was mentioned. It’s not surprising to see Build-a-Bear partner with such a high-profile partner as Disney, as the company has built relationships with numerous major franchises to bring various adorable plushes to life.
While Baby Yoda would make for a great child’s toy, John additionally noted that recent years have seen more and more adults become the focus of the company’s products. This would seem to apply double for a popular character such as Baby Yoda, because honestly, who could resist such an innocent creature?
