While Build-A-Bear Workshop has always offered a variety of Star Wars-inspired bears and even a few droids as part of their mix-and-match plush collection, soon guests at the popular stuffed toy workshop can create and cradle their very own child from “The Mandalorian”: Baby Yoda.
Announced back in early January, we now have a first look at the new plush design:
Known as The Child, this lovable alien is sure to bring bountiful hugs for fans who can’t get enough of this mysterious species. This officially-licensed plush is inspired by The Mandalorian.
The company collaborated in partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm to develop the plush after the premiere of “The Mandalorian” in order to meet the growing demand for more adorable Baby Yoda merch. Their customer demographic is slowly seeing an increased trend of older consumers as more and more adult fans crave licensed merchandise and collectibles.
The new Baby Yoda plush is expected to hit Build-A-Bear Workshop locations nationwide in the coming months. Sign-ups are now open so you can be among the first to know when The Child is available for purchase!
