The best-selling Funko Pop preorder of all time is a wrinkly, 50-year-old toddler. Funko Pop recently announced a Baby Yoda figurine that has fans hitting checkout in advance. And it just might be the cutest Pop figurine of all time, if you can believe it.
The Child figurine stands a little under four inches tall and sells for between $8 to $13, depending on the retailer and whether it comes with a protective case. Some retailers have been carrying the figurine for preorder since mid-February, and more retailers are putting up their preorders each week. Notably, the figurine is up for preorder on the official Disney shop right now.

According to Funko, the figurine is the best-selling Pop preorder of all time. But that doesn’t mean the sale is going off without a hitch.
Baby Yoda merchandise has experienced a slow rollout because Disney decided to keep the character, technically named “The Child,” a secret until “The Mandalorian” premiered on Disney Plus in late 2019 — hoping to break the internet with the tiny emerald cutie.
And it worked. But brands have been scrambling to design and produce Baby Yoda products a timely manner since to capitalize on the unexpected Baby Yoda hype.
However, Baby Yoda merchandise could be further delayed due to coronavirus, according to CNN, as many of the companies producing the products use Chinese factories.
The Funko Pop Baby Yoda figurine was originally slated to drop in March, but delays now have the Baby Yoda Funko Pop toys estimated to ship in April or May.
Even with all the production trouble, you have to admit this tiny green cutie is worth the wait. Wait until you pinch those round, wrinkly plastic cheeks.
