If you are as obsessed with Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian as the rest of us, you have probably been wondering why there's been little to no merchandise available featuring the adorable little creature. It turns out that there is a legitimate reason for the delay.

CNBC reports that showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni held off on releasing any goods of the character, called “The Child” on the Disney+ series, because they didn’t want to spoil his surprise appearance. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to pick up loads of items featuring of the teeny green Jedi in just a few days.

Clothes, toys, and accessories are already in the works, and will be available for purchase and pre-order through Amazon, Zazzle, Target, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Hot Topic and Box Lunch. In addition, other products featuring Baby Yoda will be available at the Disney Store, ShopDisney and at the Disney Parks, just in time for the holidays.

Though The Mandalorian has only released three episodes thus far, fans are obsessed with the tiny character, especially because the Yoda’s species or his home planet were never explained. It was also revealed recently that the character actually does have a name and backstory, and we will know more as the weeks progress.

This holiday season, be sure to pick up your favorite Baby Yoda swag for the Star Wars diehard fan in your life.
