Build-A-Bear showed off the adorable toy during a Tuesday presentation at an investors' conference in Orlando, according to Business Insider. "I'm excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined," said Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John at the event.
In an email to TV Guide, a representative for Build-A-Bear confirmed plans for The Child plush, which will be available to purchase in Build-A-Bear stores and online this spring. The build-your-own-toy store already offers such Star Wars characters as Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Rey, Ewoks, and Porgs.
Since Baby Yoda made his surprise debut at the end of the first episode of The Mandalorian — a Star Wars show about a bounty hunter who impulsively rescues his diminutive bounty from his Imperial clients and winds up on the run — merchandise featuring The Child has been in high demand.

The Mandalorian Season 2 will return to Disney+ this fall.
