The Child (commonly referred to as Baby Yoda) has become one of the biggest internet sensations of the past few years — and for good reason, just look at him!
The little guy appeared in the new Disney+ Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, and instantly won over our hearts with his wide-eyed stare, and big floppy ears. Contrary to popular belief, ‘Baby Yoda’ is actually not a young version of the Jedi sage, but a separate character of the same alien species. Along with the show’s lead, the Mandalorian, The Child is the only character to appear in all eight episodes of the show’s much-loved first season.
Since his reveal in the series premiere, the internet has fallen in love with The Child and dubbed him Baby Yoda. Since then, he’s been used in countless memes and traveled to nearly every part of the internet thanks to his undeniable cuteness. Fun fact: The Child is a puppet — not CGI — thanks to film legend and Mandalorian guest-star Werner Herzog. He insisted on Baby Yoda being a puppet and even called the showrunners “cowards” for thinking otherwise.
And if you’ve been a fan of Baby Yoda and all of his impossible cuteness for the past year, you’ll be happy to know he and the rest of the cast of The Mandalorian are set to return soon! That’s right, The Mandalorian Season Two hits Disney+ October 30th.
Ahead of the release, Disney dropped us all a little teaser trailer. As you can see from the clip below, you’ll get your fill of tense man-to-man showdowns, fast-paced space flights, and (of course) Baby Yoda doing cute Baby Yoda things. The trailer also does a good job giving us an idea of what to expect from the next season, with the Mandalorian responsible for delivering Baby Yoda to the Jedi.
We don’t know much else, but hey, Baby Yoda standing in the snow looking all cute was really all it took to get us excited. So bring it on! But, if you’re looking to satisfy your Baby Yoda fix leading up to the Season Two premiere, read on for the best Baby Yoda merch this side of the galaxy.
This is the way . . . to some truly epic merch.
LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian & The Child
Funko POPs are awesome, especially Baby Yoda Funko POPs. LEGOs are also awesome, especially Star Wars LEGOs. But put the two together and you get the beautiful, magical, adorable creation that is somehow better than both.
Featuring the cuteness of Baby Yoda and the coolness of the Mandalorian (in brick form, of course) this Brick Headz set is a must-have for all Baby Yoda fans. And even if you’re on the older side, you can appreciate this duo and set them up on your desk, for the entire office to see and admire.
The Child PopSockets PopGrip
Let Baby Yoda give you a (tiny) helping hand with this PopSocket. If you’re unfamiliar with these devices, they stick to the back of your smartphone and give some much-needed grip, plus a quick stand when you’re streaming The Mandalorian at your desk. And when you put your phone away, the grip collapses to be nearly flush with the back of your phone. This one takes things up a notch with a swappable PopTop depicting the most adorable alien in the galaxy.
Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child T-Shirt
Rep The Child wherever you go with this official Mandalorian T-shirt. It features a graphic of Baby Yoda in his signature floating crib, and the show’s title printed below. The shirt is made of 100% cotton (that reviewers say is very cozy) and comes in several colors to match your style. Rock it on the weekends while running errands for some guaranteed compliments, or wear it while you kick back and catch up on the show.
Baby on Board The Child
Upgrade the typical baby on board sicker with this funny Baby Yoda rendition. The decal shows The Child in his floating crib with the “baby on board” sign written in Star Wars font. Obviously it’s great for your car or truck (even if you don’t actually have a baby on board), but it also works on laptops, walls and fridges.
Star Wars The Child Mug
We could all use the calming cuteness of Baby Yoda with our morning cup of coffee. This mug lets you do just that with an image of The Child on the front. As with the tote bag, this mug is totally customizable and comes in a variety of colors to suit any coffee or tea-drinker’s desires. Also, if you know a grown-up Mandalorian fan, this makes a fantastic gift.
The Child iPhone Xs Max/11 Pro Max Case
Need a great case for your new iPhone 11? Here’s a good option. The case has a Mandalorian print with Baby Yoda (and his frogs), as well as a durable textured rubber bumper to keep your device safe. We like it because you can’t really tell that it’s Baby Yoda from far away, so anyone who gets close enough will be pleasantly surprised.
Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition
The force is (literally) strong with this adorable Baby Yoda doll. Not only is it a pretty lifelike rendition of the on-screen character, but this Baby Yoda doll is also animatronic, and easily one of the best toys out right now. Great for kids ages four and up, this doll will respond to movement and can even use the force (after you tap it three times on the head). But, don’t forget to put him down for a nap after using his force powers, lifting bad guys is heavy work for this little guy!
Featured on Amazon’s Toy’s We Love list, this is sure to get a smile from any Baby Yoda fan you give it to.
Note: This adorable little guy doesn’t ship until December 15, 2020.
Star Wars Cloth Face Masks 4-Pack Set
At this point in time, we all know we’re supposed to wear a mask when out in public. However, the type of mask you wear is completely up to you. And if you’re like us, you want to rep your love for BY (Baby Yoda) wherever you go. Thankfully, Disney saw this coming and whipped up a pack of four masks (for kids and adults) featuring none other than The Child.
Pick up a set and give your friends or family the other masks which are cool, but obviously nowhere near as awesome as the one you’ll keep for yourself.
AnvFlik Baby Yoda Stickers Pack
There’s nothing wrong with having Baby Yodas on every surface you own. This pack of stickers lets you do just that. It’s for the true Baby Yoda fan, with 50 unique stickers showing The Child in different forms and poses. Despite the low price tag of $10, the stickers are actually high quality as well. They’re made from 100% vinyl with sun and water protection. This means you can put them on your car, water bottle, laptop, phone, and, well, everywhere else.
The Mandalorian: The Child, Stand for Amazon Echo Dot
So maybe you have decked out your entire apartment in Baby Yoda gear. Maybe you’ve bought the shirts, the cups and the dolls. But what if you’re not done just yet? Well, then Baby Yoda-ify your smart speaker!
That’s right — because though the world isn’t great, it’s not totally awful — you can now turn your Echo Dot into The Child with this nifty (and, honestly, hilarious) stand. Does it do anything to improve or impede the use of your speaker/assistant? No! It just, you know, looks cute. And, well, that’s good enough for us.
The Mandalorian – The Child – 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Have someone in your life who is both a puzzle person and a Baby Yoda fanatic? Well then, you now offically have the world’s best present to give them! Introducing this amazing 500-piece puzzle that shows off the single greatest part of The Mandalorian in one frame: Baby Yoda. Just look at those eyes!
Tervis The Child Insulated Tumbler
This insulated tumbler from Tervis features a large, aww-inducing image of Baby Yoda wrapped around the interior cup. The tumbler has a dual-layer construction to reduce condensation and keep drinks at their proper temperature (hot or cold). It’s made of a durable, dishwasher-safe plastic — but don’t worry; it’s BPA free. Use it for your morning cup of joe, an iced coffee in the afternoon or a cold lemonade in the summer.
The Mandalorian and the Child T-Shirt
Here’s another great T-shirt with everyone’s favorite little alien. It blends style and geekdom (which is rare) thanks to a minimal Mandalorian graphic depicting The Mandalorian and The Child. A soft jersey-knit cotton means you’ll want to wear it 24/7, and the colorway is great for mixing and matching with nearly everything in your wardrobe.
The Child Pop! Bobblehead
Funko Pop! is a go-to for any pop-culture character figurine. Their most anticipated release in a long time is this Baby Yoda bobble head, and it’s easy to see why. The little guy is captured perfectly — wide eyes and all. The bobblehead also comes on a Star Wars labeled stand for maximum effect on display. However, you’ll have to pre-order this one; it’s not due out for a couple months.
Integrity Bottles Baby Yoda Whiskey Glass
Baby Yoda likes to relax with a nice snack of Sorgan frogs, but some of us humans prefer a nice glass of whiskey. Luckily, you can rep The Child while sipping on some of the good stuff. This whiskey glass showcases a hand-etching of Baby Yoda with the words “Baby Yoda Whiskey.” It’s really the only way to enjoy a glass of whiskey or a cocktail while you binge The Mandalorian.
The Child Star Wars: The Mandalorian Socks
If you want to rep The Child in a more low-key manner, pick up a pair of these Baby Yoda socks. They’re covered in a print that shows The Child standing, in his floating pod crib and his favorite snack: Sorgan frogs. The socks boast a premium synthetic stretch-knit with a blend of cotton, spandex and nylon to ensure a snug fit and moisture-wicking abilities.
Star Wars The Black Series The Child Toy
If you’re willing to wait, better Baby Yoda merch is on the way. Later this year, Disney is releasing a swath of The Child dolls and toys. One of the pieces we’re already pre-ordering is this action figure in collaboration with The Black Series. Along with the fully-articulating action figure you get Baby Yoda’s bone broth bowl, toy ball and a Sorgan frog for him to snack on. It’s ideal for displaying, but at $10 it’s also a great piece for young Star Wars fans to play with.
Star Wars The Bounty Collection The Child Toys
Another Baby Yoda action figure we can’t wait to pre-order is this 2-pack of collectible toys. The pack comes with The Child sipping soup, and another figure looking unbelievably adorable as he peeks out from his blanket. We think these toys are some of the most realistic-looking, making them great for display.
Mattel Star Wars The Child
Animatronic toys are all good and fun, but sometimes you just want to hug and squeeze your Baby Yoda. With Mattel’s The Child doll, you can do just that. This 11-inch Baby Yoda doll is soft to the touch and darn cute. What’s more, this Baby Yoda doll is filled with beans under his squishy exterior, to make cuddling even easier.
Star Wars The Child Playmate Mini 4 Qt Cooler
Another fun and practical bit of Baby Yoda merch is this cooler from Igloo. Look, we love some good merch (see our EXTENSIVE Spider-Man merch list if you don’t believe us), but every now and then you want something a little more practical than a bobblehead or plushie. Thank the stars for Igloo, huh?
This cooler, while remaining cute, is very functional. Its four-quart size is big enough for a six-pack of brews or your lunch. And its design will keep all your fixins cool on whatever camping trip or hike you bring it on.
