You’ve seen the memes. You’ve binged the show. And now, thanks to Build-A-Bear, you can finally get your hands on some Baby Yoda merch.
According to Business Insider, Build-A-Bear is responding to the worldwide craze by developing their own line of Baby Yoda plush toys said to be available in the next couple of months.
Holding up a Baby Yoda stuffed toy, Build-A-Bear’s CEO said, “I’m excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined.”
The breakout star of the hit Disney+ show “The Mandalorian” took the Internet by storm when he debuted in November, and fans have been clamoring ever since to get their hands on anything Baby Yoda.
It’s so bad that a “black market” of sorts has sprang up on sites like Amazon and Etsy with savvy artisans trying their best to cash in on the craze.
Seriously, Google it. Some knock-off items seem worth the money…
Still, it seems as if Build-A-Bear is the first corporation to throw their hat into the world of Baby Yoda merchandise.
But we’ve got a hunch they won’t be the last.
No official word yet on an exact release date, but more announcements are sure to come soon.
