Ever since the first appearance of Baby Yoda in “The Mandalorian” series on Disney+, the internet has been buzzing like a very busy beehive.

One "Star Wars" item folks exchanging holiday gifts this year won't find under the wrapping paper is any Baby Yoda merchandise (at least, not officially released Baby Yoda merchandise). And as it turns out, despite the obvious appeal of having Baby Yoda toys on shelves for the holiday shopping season, choosing to maintain the surprise of the character's reveal instead was a calculated gamble on the part of "The Mandalorian" executive producer Jon Favreau.

To that end, earlier this week Forbes reported that one piece of official Baby Yoda merchandise - a plush toy - is now available for pre-order through Amazon, with the toy itself planned for a June 2020 release. Amazon also has a Funko Pop! version of Baby Yoda available for pre-order, too.

Fully embrace the cuteness of the 50-year-old Yoda species with this adorable 11-inch plush toy. He may look like a Baby Yoda, but this lovable creature is referred to as The Child. Inspired by the Disney+ live-action series The Mandalorian, this sweet Star Wars plush toy makes a Force-sensitive addition to your collection.

There's hope yet though - "The Mandalorian" season 2 is underway, with Favreau directing an episode this time around. And what's more, the Mandalorian creator says there's a possibility some of the show's characters (perhaps even Baby Yoda?) could make the jump to "Star Wars" movies from the Disney Plus series, all of which means there may be relevant merch and toy opportunities for some time to come.
