Mattel’s remote-operated Baby Yoda follows you around, which is really all we want from both a toy and a little green alien. But as great as that toy is, it doesn’t capture one of Grogu’s most endearing traits. The tiny tyke loves holding stuff. Whether it’s a metal ball from Din Djarin’s ship, or food he probably shouldn’t be eating, the kid can’t help himself. Now you can watch him enjoy a tasty treat anytime you want, with Hasbro‘s new animatronic Star Wars Galactic Snackin’ Grogu.
But remember, you definitely don’t want to give him too many macarons before going on a trip.
The newest Baby Yoda merch is ready to do what The Child does best—eat. This animatronic collectible features sounds, motions, and interactive accessories. Grogu will taste all of the accompanying extras you can put in his hands. He’ll then let you know if he likes it or not with an appropriate noise. That includes a blue space macaron, a big ol’ bowl of squid with the tentacles hanging over the ledge, a spoon, and the tiny silver ball from Din’s ship that Baby Yoda loves.
But that’s not all this toy will do. Grogu will let you know when he wants you to pick him up. He’ll reach up to you with both of his little arms. And thanks to his “Force activation,” he will also perform a “two-handed Force move” inspired by The Mandalorian‘s second season. He comes with “series-inspired sound effects, a premium soft goods robe, moving head, ears, arms, and blinking eyes.”
Snackin’ Grogu requires four 1.5V AA batteries and is appropriate for kids four and up. You can preorder it now ($79.99) at most major retailers. That includes Hasbro Pulse, Amazon, Walmart, shopDisney, and Target. It will be available this fall.
That’s plenty of time to cook up something tasty that Baby Yoda will love. We’re thinking fish egg-flavored cookies. Just not too many of them.
