It was announced that Build-A-Bear will be getting a “Baby Yoda” option in the near future.
The announcement was made by Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John at the IRC Conference in Orlando, Florida.
“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. We now will have The Child, also known as Baby Yoda”
She said that Build-A-Bear has been working with Disney and Lucasfilms on this project since The Mandalorian and Disney+ debuted in November. “We started this process almost with the first episode.”
Which goes along with what we have been saying, that the merchandise wasn’t lined up till Disney saw that it was popular.
Here’s a look at the Build-A-Bear CEO holding the plush:
No word on the exact release date, but it will be coming in the near future!
This one is going to be incredibly popular.
