Last month, Hasbro unveiled a new Animatronic Baby Yoda toy that will be released ahead of the holidays this year, and the internet went crazy for it.
The adorable little doll was made available for pre-order on Amazon shortly after it was first announced, but a rush of demand resulted in the toy’s disappearance just a few days later.
Now, the new Baby Yoda toy has somehow reappeared on Amazon and is available for pre-order once again, but there’s no telling how long it will remain on the site.

If ever there was a time when we needed some good news, that time is now. And when it comes to new product releases that are destined to be among the most popular gift purchases ahead of the holidays this year, the news doesn’t get any better than this: the Animatronic Baby Yoda that Hasbro unveiled late last month is back on Amazon and available for pre-order once again! (Yes, February might seem like it was a lifetime ago at this point, but Animatronic Baby Yoda was unveiled less than four weeks ago.)
Whether or not you’ve seen The Mandalorian series on Disney+, you have undoubtedly seen Baby Yoda. The character’s actual name in the show is “The Child,” but he uses the force and he looks just like Yoda as a baby, so that’s obviously what everyone was going to call him. Disney clearly had no idea just how obsessed people were going to be with Baby Yoda, so the company didn’t have any Baby Yoda merch or toys available for sale when the series premiered. That led to all sorts of bootlegging on sites like eBay and Etsy, but an official Animatronic Baby Yoda toy is now on the way and it’s awesome. See it in action in the video below.
Animatronic Baby Yoda disappeared from Amazon just a few short days after the toy was first made available for pre-order, and that’s not exactly a surprise considering the reception it got when Hasbro unveiled it. Somehow it’s back on Amazon today though, and it’s the first time it has been made available for pre-order again since it vanished in February.
This is definitely going to be the hottest toy of the holidays this year, so definitely pre-order it now if you want to have any chance at all of getting your hands on one before Christmas and Chanukah. Note that the Amazon page says the release date for Animatronic Baby Yoda is on December 15th, but that’s just a placeholder. Hasbro hasn’t yet announced a first release date, but it’ll definitely be before the holidays.
Heres the full description from Amazon’s Animatronic Baby Yoda product page:
From Hasbro’s Star Wars Collection: The Child Animatronic Edition with sounds and motorized sequences.
He may look like “Baby Yoda,” but this lovable creature is called The Child – and now you can become his protector with this animatronic toy from Star Wars. Touching the top of The Child Animatronic Edition’s head activates over 25 sound and motion combinations, including happy and excited sounds, giggles, babbles, and more, all while the figure’s head moves up and down, ears move back and forth, and eyes open and close. Boys and girls ages 4 and up can pretend to harness the power of the Force as The Child toy closes its eyes, raises its arm, and sighs as if exerting a great amount of energy.
