The First Baby Yoda Toy Is Too Adorable For Words
All any Star Wars fan wants for Christmas is an adorable widdle Baby Yoda to call their own. Unfortunately, the cute little aliens are in high demand and low supply — or maybe non-existent supply. Desperate to keep the identity of Baby Yoda and his role in The Mandalorian a secret, Disney held off on their usual marketing and merchandising blitz, meaning this holiday season you are going to have a hard time tracking down Baby Yoda chachkies.
Luckily, a new hope is on the horizon. Funko announced on their website they are putting the finishing touches on the first two Baby Yoda Pops. One is your standard Pop size, and the other is a “near-lifesize” 10-inch version. The site says:
Embrace the cuteness of the newest Star Wars character by pre-ordering Funko's "the Child" Pop! in both standard size AND a near-lifesize 10-inch version! He may look like a Baby Yoda, but this lovable creature is referred to as "the Child."
The standard Pop is above. Here is the “lifesize” one:
Again, these Pops are not expected to arrive this month. You’ll need to look elsewhere for holiday gifts. But if you can wait, Funko says these first two Baby Yoda Pops will be ready in “Early Spring.” It’s like an Ozu movie, only with a lot more Baby Yoda adorableness!
