“This potato has long ears” – Mystery Science Theater 3000
The pop culture craze that is “The Child” aka, Baby Yoda from the smash series The Mandalorian knows no bounds. And while a series of toys have been announced (though not yet released) in the weeks since the end of Disney+’s eight episode first season, there was no way that this little dude wasn’t going to be the star of NY Toy Fair 2020.
Official release details:
From Hasbro’s Star Wars Collection: The Child Animatronic Edition with sounds and motorized sequences!
He may look like “Baby Yoda,” but this lovable creature is called The Child — and now you can become his protector with this animatronic toy from Star Wars. Touching the top of The Child Animatronic Edition’s head activates over 25 sound and motion combinations, including happy and excited sounds, giggles, babbles, and more, all while the figure’s head moves up and down, ears move back and forth, and eyes open and close. Boys and girls ages 4 and up can pretend to harness the power of the Force as The Child toy closes its eyes, raises its arm, and sighs as if exerting a great amount of energy. Includes The Mandalorian pendant.
