Baby Yoda is #1 Best Selling Plush Toy on Amazon


The Mandalorian on Disney+ is bringing Star Wars fans back together and it has also given us one of the cutest characters in the franchise, The Child, aka Baby Yoda.

But, there is a downside. Disney did not have merchandise ready to go for Baby Yoda at the launch of the show, even though they had Mandalorian toys ready and out a month before, so all the Baby Yoda toys are only available via pre-order right now. I’m not buying the lack of Baby Yoda merchandise was  for “secrecy” story, but that’s another article.

Currently Mattel’s Baby Yoda plush is the #1 best selling plush toy on Amazon. Although he isn’t physically available yet, he can be per-ordered for $24.99 with a scheduled release on May 25, 2020.

Also coming out next year on pre-order are a bunch of other Baby Yoda, “The Child,” items coming from Hasbro, including a “Talking” Baby Yoda figure. You can read more about those HERE.

So a toy that isn’t even out yet is the #1 best selling plush (they call it a “soft toy”) on Amazon right before Christmas. That’s actually quite impressive!

No matter how you slice it, Baby Yoda is incredibly popular, but he isn’t coming home for Christmas. However, that does not mean you can’t give the gift of a Baby Yoda pre-order. In that spirit and the spirit of the original trilogy and the Early Bird certificate we have made a special, printable “early bird” certificate for Baby Yoda that you can print out and give as a gift. You can find a PDF HERE. Or you can simply click on the image and enlarge to print.

The good news about this being a pre-order, is that you can purchase it clear up to Christmas and not have to worry about shipping!
