Build-A-Bear to Debut a ‘Baby Yoda’ Stuffed Animal
Yep. We’ll be the first in line.
If you’re still obsessing over “Baby Yoda” (and honestly, who isn’t?), you’re gonna love the latest news to come from Build-A-Bear. On January 14, Build-A-Bear announced that an official Baby Yoda stuffed animal, also known as “The Child,” will be an option.
“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,” said Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John during a presentation at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Florida.
At the conference, John announced that the cute plush will be available at Build-A-Bear Workshops across the country. A specific release date has not been made public.
“It’s great, again, to be in business with best-in-class partners,” John added, stating that Build-A-Bear, Disney, and Lucasfilm worked as fast as possible to make the Baby Yoda character plush a reality. “We started this process almost with the first episode.”
Baby Yoda has taken the internet by storm since the tiny creature was first introduced in Disney+’s The Mandalorian, which was ranked as the “top in-demand television series in the world” upon its release, but The Witcher (Netflix) has since claimed that title. Between the toys and other merchandise that have been flooding the web, people really can’t seem to get enough of Baby Yoda—and we don’t blame them! Baby Yoda’s adorable.
