Buy it, you must.
The force is strong with the Child — or Baby Yoda, as the creature is more affectionately known.
Dolls based off of the popular character from the Disney+ series The Mandalorian were announced yesterday, including an 11-inch plush toy ($24.99; amazon.com), and two Funko Pops, in normal-sized and “super-sized” versions. Shortly after landing on Amazon, the smaller $9 Funko Pop was unavailable for a while due to high traffic — but luckily, it’s been restocked. Even though the figurine isn’t expected to ship until May 15, 2020, you’ll want to pre-order it as soon as possible, before it inevitably sells out.

The figurine has already climbed to the top of Amazon’s best-selling action figures chart, and is making its way up the overall toys and games charts. Funko also released a bigger, 10-inch figurine, which is also available for pre-order and currently on sale for 25 percent off.

Ever since the Child made its debut in the premiere episode of The Mandalorian, the internet has been in a frenzy over the baby-like character that resembles Yoda but is not actually his offspring, as far as viewers currently know. All that is known about the creature is that it’s wanted by a remnant of the Galactic Empire for reasons that have yet to be revealed.
