A whole host of cuddly, frog-eating and talking (and, of course, giggling) toys of "The Child" (better known as "Baby Yoda" from the "Star Wars" series "The Mandalorian") have been revealed just in time for the 2020 Toyfair in New York City.
This morning (Feb. 20) on Good Morning America, these new toys were put on display so you can see how they move and look on camera in the video below or in the video from Hasbro above.

Recently, Hasbro revealed a slew of "Star Wars" products and toys that will go on sale and be available for preorder starting in May, 2020. With the announcement, the company has released a crop of positively enchanting new toys.
Animatronic Baby Yoda
The most eye- (and ear) catching of all these toys is an animatronic toy that looks, sounds and even moves like Baby Yoda. By touching the top of The Child's head, you activate its over 25 sounds and movement combinations, which include happy, excited sounds like giggling and babbling, head movements, eye blinking and ear wiggling. Yes, it is beyond adorable.
The animatronic toy will even try to harness the power of the force, raising its little arms, closing its eyes and sighing from the "incredible energy it's exerting." To take the lifelike nature of this animatronic up just another notch, if you lay this Baby Yoda down, it will close its eyes and take a "Force nap." This figure will be available at most major retailers beginning Fall, 2020 and will retail for about $59.99.
One of the other Baby Yoda toys that has been generating buzz is Hasbro's "Star Wars The Child talking plush toy." This toy, revealed earlier this year to hit shelves this Spring, 2020, this talking plush has a soft body which, when squeezed, emits character sounds. And, of course, this Baby Yoda plush comes with body a Sorgan frog and a bone broth bowl.

The bigger of these figurines has its hand stretched out, trying to harness the power of the Force, while the tiniest of these figures comes in six different configurations. This includes versions of Baby Yoda sipping soup, eating a frog, stretching out to use the Force and wrapped in a blanket. Both of these figures are set to hit shelves this Spring, 2020.

Baby Yoda isn't the only "Star Wars" character getting all of the attention with this new toy release. In addition to the above figures, plushes animatronics and games, Hasbro is coming out with a 5-inch-scale Ahsoka Tano figure. The figure is incredibly detailed and includes two blue lightsabers.
