Hasbro, which holds the master toy license for Star Wars-branded toys, has finally revealed its first collection of figures based on everyone’s favorite character from “The Mandalorian” — Baby Yoda.
While the cute creature has been dubbed Baby Yoda, because of his resemblance to the iconic “Star Wars” character, retailers, manufacturers and Disney itself call the character “The Child.”
Starting Thursday, fans will be able to preorder four new Baby Yoda toys. The toys are expected to arrive in spring 2020. The Child has become a social media sensation since debuting on Disney+ a month ago.
Keeping “Baby Yoda” a secret has meant that toys, plush and other items haven’t been available to purchase right away, disappointing eager holiday shoppers. It’s why most of the products currently available are from apparel companies or are made with the same, simplistic photo from the show.
As part of Hasbro’s Black Series collection, high-quality collectibles, there will be a 1.12-inch figure of The Child with multiple points of articulation. It will come with a small bone broth cup, ball toy and Sorgan frog.
There is a series of 2.2-inch collectible figures that have The Child in a variety of poses, including eating a Sorgan frog, sleeping and playing with the silver knob from the Mandalorian’s ship.
A 6.5-inch figure will also be available.
Hasbro has also created a talking plush toy that can be squeezed to activate several cooing sounds.
