I loved The Mandalorian. It was a badass space western, a nice diversion from the Skywalker Saga, and proof that the Star Wars Universe needs to expand. One of the best parts, of course, was The Child, aka Baby Yoda.

Honestly one of the best things about all the focus on Baby Yoda memes was that no one was even sharing spoilers about the show itself, everyone was just obsessed with this lil fella sipping soup or eating frogs or wiggling his little fingers.

The word was that no official merch was released because the show creators didn't want to reveal the character too early, but now that Season 1 is over, the floodgates are open!

In the near future, Build-A-Bear Workshops will feature a Baby Yoda stuffed animal! The company shared a prototype at a conference in Orlando, where CEO Sharon Price John said they were "excited to...be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined."
