Not only does Baby Yoda have incredible powers, but now he also has a green thumb! Unveiled to the masses at the New York Toy Fair last week, "The Child" Chia Pets are on the way.
As reported by Cosmopolitan, attendees at the fair snapped pics of the adorable item by entertainment collectibles company NECA, which you can see below. As expected, fans are absolutely obsessed with this product. On a post by The Pop Insider via Instagram, people wrote comments such as, "Baby Yoda is about to take all my money...," "Okay, I absolutely want this when it becomes available," and "Must have!"
In the first episode of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, the titular character is tasked with capturing and delivering a 50-year-old target to a client with sinister connections. However, the bounty hunter finds Baby Yoda, a.k.a. "The Child"—the absolute cutest 50-year-old in the galaxy—and decides to protect him instead.
Baby Yoda took the world by storm after the Star Wars show debuted this past November, far surpassing Porgs in terms of cuteness. It is no surprise, then, that themed merchandise is in demand. The Chia Pet features the adorable green guy sitting in a decorative planter with a smile on his face. Although there's no official word when the product will be available, "The Child" Chia Pet should work just like any other from the brand.
The second season of The Mandalorian is set to premiere in Oct. 2020.
