Iconic, he is. Yoda has long been a fan favorite in the Star Wars universe, so it makes sense that The Mandalorian’s “Baby Yoda,” a.k.a. The Child or Grogu, has been an equal if not bigger hit. How could he not be, what with those oversized eyes, his powerful inner force and an insatiable hunger for frogs (not to mention a controversial penchant for their eggs)? There’s no doubt about it, when it comes to pop culture favorites, Baby Yoda rules them all.
If you’re looking for a Baby Yoda gift for the Star Wars fan in your life to celebrate the annual Star Wars holiday (May the Fourth be with you all!) check out these awesome Baby Yoda gifts.
Or, since it will be a while before the already-ordered third and fourth seasons of The Mandalorian hit Disney+, maybe grab yourself a little swag while you’re at it. After all, in the words of Mando himself, this is the way.
1. Star Wars The Child Toy
For an authentic action figure that fans of The Child can display and pose, we recommend the 6.5-inch figurine from Disney. The lifelike figurine can be made to look as though Baby Yoda is using the force to complete almost any task, including turning on the TV, reaching for a drink or washing dishes. The poseable action figure makes a great addition to any bedroom, TV room, or desk that belongs to a Star Wars fan.
2. LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian & The Child
BEST FOR BUILDERS
What’s better than Star Wars or LEGO? Star Wars and LEGO together. That’s why we love The Mandalorian and The Child set that comes with all the pieces users need to build the two characters from the Disney series. The Mandalorian comes with a blaster rifle and a blaster pistol and Baby Yoda has a floating ‘hover pram’ for a safe journey away from the clutches of the evil Empire. The 295-piece Lego set includes a stand for both characters and is appropriate for users ages 10 and up.
3. Disney+ Subscription
BEST FOR FANS WHO HAVEN’T ACTUALLY SEEN THE SHOW
Do they love Baby Yoda, but don’t actually have a way to watch him in action? Gift them a Disney+. subscription, which will get them access to everything Star Wars, including The Mandalorian, of course. Plus, there are tons of great non-Star Wars content to be had on Disney+.
4. The Mandalorian and The Child Vinyl Bobblehead
Desks, bookshelves, TV stands and countertops are boring. They only become interesting when you put things on them. That’s why Funko Pop! has seen an explosion in business since they began creating collectible figurines of people’s favorite things a.k.a. the Mandalorian and The Child. Make your space less boring with a collectible that includes the always cute Baby Yoda and a bobblehead version of The Mandalorian, which is still cool and intimidating even when it bobbles.
5. Mattel Star Wars The Child Plush Toy
Are you a fully grown adult who still enjoys the comfort of a stuffed doll and doesn’t want to make it weird? We have good news. Mattel’s Star Wars The Child Plush Toy is 11 inches of pure cuteness, comfort and cuddly-ness that is totally appropriate for living in the bedroom of Star Wars fans of any age. Named one of Amazon’s hottest toys of 2020, this adorable little guy is undoubtedly going to be one of the best gifts of the year. This Baby Yoda toy has a soft body and a sturdy base filled with beans, which makes this a great toy for cuddling or for standing on its own and looking cool as a collectible. Ages are a mystery for the most part in Star Wars, so enjoy a stuffy no matter what the date is on your driver’s license.
6. Baby Yoda Funko! Pop
Back when The Mandalorian first hit the streaming airwaves in 2019, there was a sudden scramble for Baby Yoda merchandise. This Baby Yoda bobblehead from Funko Pop! was the first official piece of merchandise to be released. However, if you don’t already have this toy in your Funko Pop! collection, then you’ll want to order the original Baby Yoda toy. Shopping for someone else? This small gift makes for the perfect gift for men, women and children.
7. 3D Illusion Star Wars Night Light
BEST DECOR OPTION
For young Star Wars fans who don’t like sleeping without their lightsaber, or even grown-up Star Wars fans who appreciate some light as they navigate through their galaxy (ie. getting to the bathroom without tripping at night), there is the 3-D Star Wars nightlight. Users can choose from three acrylic plates that give the sense of a floating 3-D vision of Baby Yoda, Darth Vader or Chewbacca. Using the included remote control, users can scroll through 16 colors and three modes. The nightlight can also take AA batteries, making it easy to bring Baby Yoda on any journey.
8. Star Wars Mandalorian Baby Yoda Design A Planter
BEST FOR ARTISTS
Few things are more synonymous with the color green than plants and Baby Yoda, so bring the two together with a decorative planter. The vinyl planter comes in the shape of The Child and includes one sticker sheet and four markers. Users can let their creativity flow and complete their new project with an included piece of greenery. The succulent is fake, but others will think you have the force when it comes to keeping plants alive.
9. Monopoly: Star Wars The Child Edition
BEST FOR GAME NIGHT
When it’s time to take your love of Star Wars and The Child off-screen for the night, we recommend the Baby Yoda-themed Monopoly game. This special edition features references to the TV show, including Hideouts, Common Houses, the Cup of Broth, a Tracking FOB and the Razor Crest Storage Bag. Each player gets a token featuring The Child in a different pose, meaning everyone gets to use the force. But of course, no sneaky stuff. Don’t be a Moff Gideon.
10. Protect Attack Snack Ceramic Mug
BEST FOR COFFEE AND TEA DRINKERS
Whether the Star Wars fan in your life is having their morning coffee at home or sipping on an afternoon tea at the office, the Silver Buffalo ‘Protect, Snack, Attack’ mug offers an easy way to show their love for The Child. The 20-ounce ceramic mug is BPA and toxin-free and features three images of Baby Yoda. It’s also safe for the microwave and the top rack of the dishwasher, just in case you don’t have enough ‘force’ to clean the mug simply by staring at it. How cool would that be?
11. LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child Building Kit
BEST FOR CREATIVE KIDS
For any Baby Yoda fan who is a budding DIYer, consider getting them this LEGO kit that will scratch their creative itch. The kit has an impressive 1,073 pieces, meaning they’ll be kept occupied for a long time as they assemble it. The figure even has a poseable head.
12. Chia Pet Star Wars “The Child”
BEST FOR GREEN THUMBS
For any Star Wars-loving green-thumb, consider getting this Chia pet that features The Child comfortably seated in his little floating pod. The chia seeds grow around him in the pod. There are also other Star Wars-themed Chia Pets to collect, including Chewbacca and grown-up Yoda.
13. Tervis Star Wars-The Mandalorian Insulated Tumbler
BEST FOR MANDALORIAN FANS ON THE GO
Star Wars fans on the go will appreciate this tumbler. It’s insulated, allowing them to carry their favorite hot beverage wherever they go. While you drink your favorite beverage, Baby Yoda will enjoy his; the mug features Baby Yoda sipping on a cup of hot bone broth.
14. Star Wars The Child LED Night Light
BEST FOR THE KIDS ROOM
For any kid (or adult) who’s afraid of the dark, get them this adorable night light and let Baby Yoda keep them safe. Sure, he may be a child, but it’s well-established that Baby Yoda has extremely formidable force powers. In this case, he’s using his force powers to illuminate a dark room. It’s a small option, so it won’t be too bright, but it does provide a pleasant glow. The light can be plugged in using either a micro USB cord or powered with batteries.
15. Innovative Designs Baby Yoda Coloring & Sticker Activity Set
BEST FOR CREATIVE MINDS
Kids will get a kick out of this coloring set, which comes with stickers, markers, gel pens, an ink pad and a roller stamper. The best part is that everything tucks into the adorable Baby Yoda carrying case, making this one a great buy for road trips, bored kids or even as favors at a Star Wars-themed birthday party.
16. The Big One Star Wars Mandalorian Baby Yoda Blanket
BEST FOR SNUGGLING
How many times have you just wanted to give Baby Yoda a big old snuggle? Now you can with this plush blanket, which comes with a space-like design and prints of Grogu in various poses. According to reviewers, the blanket is definitely plush and lightweight, making it the perfect thing to snuggle up with the next time you get a Star Wars marathon going.
17. The Child ”Protects, Attacks & Takes Naps” T-Shirt for Adults
BEST WEARABLE MERCH
Have you ever noticed that Baby Yoda takes a notable number of naps? It makes sense, considering how much effort it takes to use the Force and all. Still, we love that this shirt celebrates the character trait, while maybe also giving your gift recipient an excuse to get a little more shuteye (all while wearing comfy new gear, of course).
18. Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Baby Yoda Kids Headphones
BEST CARRIAGE INTEGRATION
Listen up Star Wars fans. Is there anything more adorable for younger fans than a set of Baby Yoda headphones? This set features Grogu in his carriage pod, making it a fun addition to any collection. The headphones are also great for homeschooling or tablet time thanks to the adjustable headband and high-quality stereo sound, but the set also happens to give tired parents everywhere a bit of a sound break.
19. Loungefly Star Wars Baby Yoda Coin Bag
This Baby Yoda imprinted pouch is marketed as a cosmetics bag, but it’s actually perfect for all kinds of fans. Throw snacks in it, use it as a pencil case, a change purse or as a catch-all for organizing smaller objects. The design is universal and fun, which makes it a sweet but very useful gift.
20. babyGap | Star Wars Hat
BEST FOR ACTUAL BABIES
Look, you don’t even have to be a Baby Yoda fan to appreciate how adorable an actual baby wearing a Yoda hat can be. Whether you know a new parent or want to gift a growing baby something to keep his or her head warm, this soft knit cap seems like a pretty stellar bet.
