Baby Yoda merchandise started out slow, but plushies and puzzles are coming

Soon, Star Wars fans can cuddle up with The Child from The Mandalorian.

Move over, Hatchimals. Freeze, Frozen dolls. The new hot merchandise for the 2019 holiday season just might be anything featuring Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. In the lead-up to Black Friday, online stores were mostly carrying only T-shirts (so many T-shirts), and those shirts were as boring as Luke's life on Tatooine. The same photo of Baby Yoda's sweet face was plastered on everything from shirts to phone cases, and while he's still cute, the shirts feel rushed and almost homemade.

To recap: Star Wars fans call this creature Baby Yoda, but its official name right now is The Child. (It's 50 years old, but that's a baby in Yoda's species -- remember, Yoda was 900 in Return of the Jedi.) It's super adorable, so much so that when it looks like GIFs of it were being banned, Twitter users got upset

If you want to pore over everything that's out there, settle in for a long surf, because there are numerous websites offering merchandise. Online stores are your best shot for now, and physical retail stores should get it soon. Check Amazon, Walmart, Hot Topic, Target, Kohl's, BoxLunch, eBay, SuperHeroStuff, Macy's, Shop Disney and Design By Humans.

Shop Disney

It's not complicated. It's a phone case with Baby Yoda on it. And it's not cheap. But since you take your phone everywhere, it means you get to have the cutie pie in your pocket, too.

Discuss your morning schedule with a caffeinated Baby Yoda.

There are many puzzling elements in the Star Wars universe, so this 500-piece jigsaw seems appropriate. It won't ship until Dec. 30, so it's a little late for Christmas.

Funko

Bobble, he does. Sit on your coffee table or mantel, he will. A much smaller 3.75-inch version that would work well on an office desk or shelf goes for $12.99. 

Mattel

A stuffed toy is a natural product for such a cute little character, because it's just so snuggly. Mattel is making an 11-inch plushie of The Child, and it can be preordered at shopDisney and at other retailers. Orders won't ship until February 2020.

Design By Humans

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Baby Yoda in his so-cool carriage. Applause to this shirt for using a different, and better, Baby Yoda photo.

Fifth Sun/Walmart

If you like your stuff basic, here's Baby Yoda, and only Baby Yoda, on a simple white T-shirt. 

Box Lunch

No headline, no background, no cute slogans. If that's your style, this is for you. And it's already marked down. 

Shop Disney

The baseball jersey style of this shirt adds some sass to the same Baby Yoda photo we're seeing absolutely everywhere.

Shop Disney

Same image we're seeing everywhere, but the colored lid and straw add some pizazz to this Baby Yoda tumbler. It has a reusable straw because Baby Yoda believes in saving the turtles.

Ha. The full-body picture on this shirt reminds us that Baby Yoda has a Muppet heritage. Still cute, though.

Hot Topic

Come on, Disney, Baby Yoda is a WAY better name than "The Child." Decent shirt, but you will need to explain why the creature is called that. Why is it called that?
