You Can Pre-Order an Animatronic Baby Yoda Doll That Coos, Moves, and Uses the Force
With his giant eyes, pointy ears, and oversized robes, The Child—more affectionately known as Baby Yoda—managed to dominate popular culture the instant he made his debut in The Mandalorian. And if you've been wishing you could give this pint-sized green creature a hug, now you can with Hasbro’s animatronic Baby Yoda doll, which is available for pre-order at GameStop for $60.
But this doll does more than just sit on your shelf and look adorable (though he does that, too). Just by tapping Baby Yoda’s head, you’ll activate the doll’s series of movements and sounds inspired by the show, which include his signature happy giggles, babbling, and ear wiggles.
And when you tap the head three times, the toy raises its arm, closes its eyes, and attempts to use the Force, just like on the show. When the doll is done, you can lay it down and it will close its eyes for a quick “Force nap.”
Unfortunately, the doll won’t ship until December. But you can still get your Baby Yoda merch fix after you pre-order the Hasbro toy with this Baby Yoda Funko, which is set to arrive in the spring.
LEGO is also getting in on The Mandalorian action, with a set that allows you to recreate the show’s Razer Crest ship. The 1023-piece ship is available for pre-order on Amazon for $130. The ship comes with two spring-loaded shooters, a cargo hold, access ramps, and much more. The set also includes four mini figures of the Mandalorian, Greef Karga, a Scout Trooper, and (a very mini) Baby Yoda. The set won’t ship until September, but you can check out this LEGO Yoda ($100) in the meantime.
