On the one hand, you could spend $ 375 on a full-size Baby Yoda who doesn’t even move his arms. You wouldn’t regret it (I don’t regret it). But if you want to spend less and get something that moves and makes noise, take a look at this Animatronic The Child, in variations with and without carrier. It’s adorable.
At 7.2 inches, this Baby Yoda (or the Kid or, Spoiler Alert, Grogru) is half the height of the actual puppet, but if you’re thinking of buying the kid for a kid, this could be perfect. . After all, if you pay extra, it includes a carry bag that hangs over the chest like a Baby Bjorn or over the shoulder (like a real Mandalorian).
But a carrying case is not the toy’s strong point. The children’s toy moves! Do not walk, mind you, but the child will turn their head, close their eyes, raise their hands and react when you pat them on the head. He will make noises, and yes, he will “use the Force”. He even wags his ears, which is almost reason enough to buy it.
According to Hasbro, it has 25 combinations of sounds and movements, and if you lay it down it will “take a Force nap.” Did we mention this toy is adorable? It even comes with a removable Mandalorian pendant.
You can pick up the Animatronic Child without a carry case from Amazon or get it with a carry case from Hasbro. Just be forewarned, Amazon says it won’t arrive until Christmas, and Hasbro isn’t saying it anyway.
