I don’t care if you’re driving, eating a meal, spending quality time with a loved one, or performing surgery. Whatever you’re doing is far less important than making sure you’re among the people who get their hands on the insanely adorable new Baby Yoda animatronic toy that Hasbro just unveiled this week.
The Mandalorian is without question the best content that has come out of the Star Wars universe since the original trilogy all the way back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In fact, it was one of the best new shows that came out all year last year. Mando himself is a terrific character and the action was fantastic, but everyone knows that the best thing about The Mandalorian was Baby Yoda.
Okay, fine, so his name isn’t really “Baby Yoda.” The Child is nothing short of a pop culture phenomenon though, and people tripped over themselves buying bootleg plush Baby Yoda toys late last year. Forget the plush toys though, because something so much better was just unveiled. It’s technically called The Child Animatronic Edition toy from Hasbro, and it might be the greatest thing ever! Check out this YouTube video to see it in action:
Animatronic Baby Yoda packs more than 25 different sound and motion combinations, and I think I could probably just sit there and stare at him for hours. Unfortunately, there’s some bad news: The Child Animatronic Edition toy won’t be released by Hasbro until sometime this fall. Amazon has December 15th listed as the release date, but that’s likely just a placeholder and we can expect this awesome Hasbro toy to hit physical and virtual store shelves long before the holidays. It’ll be impossible to find unless you want to pay hundreds on eBay though, so pre-order one now on Amazon for just $60!
Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition Toy From The Mandalorian
