The toy company is going to start selling a stuffed animal version of our fave fifty-year-old baby alien. Build-a-Bear CEO Sharon Price John broke the news at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Florida, where she revealed the new addition to the audience.
"I'm excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide a digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all presidential candidates combined," she said during the presentation. "We now will have The Child, also known as Baby Yoda."
Since the first introduction to Baby Yoda, there has been a high demand for toys of the popular character. According to Business Insider, Funko introduced a Baby Yoda figurine in December and it became the top-selling action figure (even though customers can’t receive it until May of this year).
The bear-building store is known for their toys involving Disney franchises like Frozen, Marvel and other popular Star Wars characters. The toy will be available at Build-a-Bear workshops in a few months, but currently, there are no details on the price or when fans can start preordering it online.
Regardless of the wait, we can’t wait to build our Baby Yoda.
