Last December was rough for Star Wars fans when it was discovered that official Baby Yoda toys would not be available until the Spring of 2020. Now, the wait is finally over and Hasbro is going even further than plush toys.
Hasbro has announced the latest addition to their Star Wars Collection, The Child Animatronic Edition. In other words, an animatronic Baby Yoda that moves, makes sounds, and reacts to touch. Here's what the toy company has to say about their newest product:
"He may look like "Baby Yoda" but this lovable creature is called THE CHILD - and now you can become his protector with this animatronic toy from STAR WARS. Touching the top of THE CHILD'S head activates over 25 sound and motion combinations, including happy and excited sounds, giggles, babbles, and more, all while the toy's head moves up and down, ears move back and forth, and eyes open and close. Boys and girls can pretend to harness the power of the Force as THE CHILD toy closes its eyes, raises its arms, and sighs as if exerting a great amount of energy. Lay THE CHILD toy down and it will close its eyes and take a "Force nap."
For as advanced as the toy seems, the retail price is only $60. It will be available starting in the Fall of 2020 but you can pre order one for yourself here!
