Baby Yoda has incredible powers, and a green thumb (of the non-literal kind) just might be one of them. Last week, New York Toy Fair attendees were thrilled to get a sneak peek at the latest piece of Baby Yoda merchandise: "The Child" Chia Pets.

As reported by Cosmopolitan, onlookers snapped plenty of photos of the adorable item by entertainment collectibles company NECA, which you can see below.

In the first episode of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, the titular character is tasked with capturing and delivering a 50-year-old target to a client with sinister connections. However, the bounty hunter finds Baby Yoda, a.k.a. "The Child"—the absolute cutest quinquagenarian in the galaxy—and decides to protect him instead.

Baby Yoda took the world by storm after the Star Wars series debuted this past November, far surpassing Porgs in terms of cuteness. The Chia Pet features the adorable green guy sitting in a decorative planter with a smile on his face. Although there's no official word on when the product will be available, it's pretty safe to assume that it will be in serious demand.

The second season of The Mandalorian is set to premiere in October 2020.
