“Baby Yoda” is OFFICIALLY coming to Build-A-Bear Workshop. With a high demand for “Baby Yoda” inspired toys, clothes...everything.. from the new Disney+ series "The Mandalorian", its not a huge shock that Disney and Lucasfilm have come to a deal with Build-A-Bear Workshop to offer what is soon to be the hottest plush toy of 2020. Disney and Build-A-Bear Workshop are no strangers. In fact, my daughter had quite a few Disney inspired BABs. Needless to say, these will fly off the shelves! Expect long lines and most likely "out of stock" signs! No news yet if there will be any special sound effects or additional accessories associated with the character but I hope it just makes weird little noises and doesn't really speak..as to stay true to the little guy in the series.
“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,” Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John said during a presentation on Tuesday at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Florida, “We now will have 'The Child', also known as 'Baby Yoda',” John added.
“Disney was nice enough to hold back the secret and the designs of the Baby Yoda character, which means that there weren’t toys available immediately. However, there are shirts and cool things like that that are available,” creator Jon Favreau told USA TODAY. “But I’ve seen the designs on the Baby Yoda dolls and toys and they’re really cool.”
