Things We Saw Today: Baby Yoda Merch Is Coming

Recommended Videos

It’s happening, people! Just in time for the holidays, we have it confirmed through CNBC that merchandise featuring our favorite tiny force user of green skin, big ears, and a still-unnamed species will be available very soon. Start your shopping now … or, soon, when the merch is actually around.

According to CNBC, merchandise featuring “The Child” will soon hit online retailers and stores including Amazon, Kohl’s. Macy’s, and Hot Topic as well as official Disney stores. “The Child” – who we will be calling Baby Yoda until we have a better name –  was not included in the initial marketing and merch push of The Mandalorian, since their existence was a closely guarded secret. But given the rapturous reaction to the little green guy, of course, they’re cashing in. And why not? Baby Yoda is the cutest thing on this or any other planet?

Disney isn’t the only one trying to make more green of this sweet fifty-year-old bundle of joy. Counterfeit and unauthorizes merch are already all over and making it hard to find the real stuff in online searches. The few I’ve seen so far were quickly taken down, and I’m sure Disney lawyers are working hard to shut down “entrepreneurs.” We’re keeping our eyes peeled for the good stuff to go on sale in the meantime. I’m hoping for a little plush to play with my talking Porg, personally.
