Hasbro’s new Star Wars themed toy dominated at this year’s Toyfair when they revealed their STAR WARS THE CHILD ANIMATRONIC EDITION Toy.
Disney weren’t prepared for the overwhelming fan excitement for the adorable child, fondly referred to as “Baby Yoda” including the lack of merchandise that fans desperately craved. Since then, they have been making up for it with a steady flow of products including clothing, dolls, kitchenware and more! Unfortunately, or not, the other characters from the Disney+ hit series, The Mandalorian, has had to take a back-seat to this tiny Force wielding toddler.
I know what you’re thinking, “ANOTHER Baby Yoda toy?” Well, yes but, Hasbro has gone to another level with this incredibly realistic and cute little guy! I can hear all the Mandalorian cosplayers “squealing” for joy around the globe!
“From HASBRO’S STAR WARS Collection comes THE CHILD ANIMATRONIC EDITION toy with sounds and motorized sequences! He may look like “BABY YODA,” but this lovable creature is called THE CHILD – and now you can become his protector with this animatronic toy from STAR WARS. Touching the top of THE CHILD’S head activates over 25 sound and motion combinations, including happy and excited sounds, giggles, babbles, and more, all while the toy’s head moves up and down, ears move back and forth, and eyes open and close. Boys and girls can pretend to harness the power of the Force as THE CHILD toy closes its eyes, raises its arm, and sighs as if exerting a great amount of energy. Lay THE CHILD toy down and it will close its eyes and take a “Force nap.” Includes figure and Mandalorian pendant. Requires 2 AAA batteries, included. Available at most major retailers.”
STAR WARS THE CHILD ANIMATRONIC EDITION Toy will retail for $59.99 and will be available in stores in the Fall 2020.
The Mandalorian Season 2 will premiere October 2020 on Disney+.
