The arrival of the annual May the 4th Star Wars celebration means a lot of new Star Wars news and merchandise. Like, a whole lot. But each year always has some standouts. For example, as far as news, The Bad Batchdebuts today on Disney+. And when it comes to merchandise, an adorable little Grogu waver caught my eye this year. I mean, it’s Grogu, a.k.a. Baby Yoda, from The Mandalorian. I am not even a little surprised to find this dashboard waver charming. It fills a hole in the expansive line of Grogu collectibles, and we didn’t even know that line had any holes. This Grogu solar-powered dashboard waver comes courtesy of FanWraps. It’s ready for your dashboard or any other smooth surface screaming for a little Grogu.
Since sunlight powers the waver, you won’t have to hunt for batteries. Just place this little one in a spot where sunlight will hit his left hand. Then Grogu will automatically wave and greet you over and over. Who doesn’t need that kind of joy in their lives?
Please observe that hand-waving action. A very important uplifting sight when you’re sitting in traffic.
You can pre-order this little Grogu cutie now for $24.99 from FanWraps. He comes with everything you need to set him up. The wavers are expected to ship later this spring. And while you’re browsing FanWraps’ offerings, please note that you can get a window graphic for your car depicting Grogu eating the infamous blue space macarons from season two of The Mandalorian. The decal makes it look like the cutest green bean is hitching a ride in your car. And bonus: it’s a sticker so it won’t, uh, have any cookie spewing incidents.
