In November 2019, Disney+ made its mark on streaming by premiering the first season of The Mandalorian. A new chapter in the Star Wars franchise, The Mandalorian introduced the new titular antihero as he collected bounties around the galaxy — with more than a little help from an adorable green child that would steal the internet’s heart. What could be better than the wise, kind and powerful Yoda? The wise, kind, powerful and ridiculously adorable Baby Yoda, of course.e
The first season of The Mandalorian centered around a hardened bounty hunter finding his heart softened by ‘The Child,’ the tiny green Baby Yoda who appeared to possess incredible power. Demand for Baby Yoda gifts and toys was instant. With season two arriving on October 30th on Disney+ and seasons three and four confirmed, the demand for these gifts is only going to increase over time.
Need a Baby Yoda gift for the Star Wars fan in your life? We’ve got you covered. Side note, that fan can also be you. Treat yourself.
1. Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition
BEST SOUND EFFECTS
Just in time for the release of season two and for the holidays, a new and exciting Baby Yoda toy for fans is set to be released in December. This animatronic version of The Child comes with 25 sound and motion combinations, including giggles, babbles and other happy sounds. The Child’s noises are matched by its eyes opening and closing, head moving side to side and ears twitching. Tapping on The Child’s head encourages the figurine to raise its arms and sigh. Laying Baby Yoda on its side will cause it to close its eyes and go to sleep. So yeah, it’s both super cute and really cool.
2. LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian & The Child
BEST FOR BUILDERS
What’s better than Star Wars and Lego? Star Wars and Lego together. That’s why we love The Mandalorian and The Child Lego 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 ‘hoverpram’ 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. Star Wars The Child Toy
BEST POSABLE OPTION
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 posed by fans and 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.
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 the bobbles.
5. Mattel Star Wars The Child Plush Toy
Are you a fully grown adult who still enjoys the comfort of a stuffie 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. Recently named one of Amazon’s hottest toys of 2020, this adorable little guy is undoubtedly going to be one of the best Christmas 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 stocking stuffer 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. Mandalorian: The Child, Stand for Amazon Echo Dot
BEST FOR ADULTS
Few franchises have celebrated robots more than Star Wars. From R2-D2 to C-3PO and most recently BB-8, robots and droids get a lot of respect in the galaxy far far away. Outfit your most useful robot assistant a.k.a. the Amazon Echo Dot with a stand in the shape of The Child. Featuring a precision fit and nonslip base, users will still enjoy all the benefits of their Amazon Echo Dot while also displaying love for Baby Yoda. For true fans, this is one of the best Baby Yoda gifts as they’ll use it day in and day out.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. Mattel Star Wars The Child Plush Toy
Are you a fully grown adult who still enjoys the comfort of a stuffie 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. 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.
12. Protect Attack Snack Ceramic Mug
BEST FOR STOCKING STUFFERS
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?
13. Star Wars Cloth Face Masks 4-Pack Set
BEST FOR PADIWANS
While this isn’t the most fun option on this list, these official Star Wars face masks from the Disney store are some of the best Baby Yoda gifts of the year. Each order comes with an assortment of four Star Wars-themed face masks. And, yes, they come in adult sizes too, although reviewers note that they come on the small side.
