(KGW) - According to Business Insider, Build-A-Bear is going to debut a build-your-own Baby Yoda (AKA The Child from the hit Disney+ show The Mandalorian).
And Build-A-Bear knows exactly what it's doing. Business Insider said that even though Build-A-Bear was traditionally for children, it has seen almost half of its sales from adults shopping online for partnered products from its collaborations with businesses like LucasFilms, Disney, and Warner Bros.
Unless you've been living under a proverbial internet rock, you cannot escape the Baby Yoda memes. It is hard to deny the cuteness of the toddling, frog-eating, force-using 50-year-old baby that has stolen the show from his bounty hunter companion The Mandalorian.
He has tiny feet and little hands and honestly is just very good. Despite the fact that his puppet body cost a reported $5 million.
And in case you weren't up to date, this is NOT actual Yoda as a child. The Mandalorian takes place after Yoda's death. This is another being of the same species as Yoda. If you remember, there was another named Yaddle who also sat on the Jedi Council with Yoda. The species is unnamed as is The Child.
