That idea evolved into Hasbro’s The Child Animatronic Edition, which captures the imagination and truly brings the character into our galaxy. It’s about the same size as the screen-used puppet. It moves its ears, blinks its eyes, and tilts its head. It makes impossibly cute cooing sounds, right from the show. You can even lay it down for a Force nap. To paraphrase Darth Vader, it is pointless to resist being charmed.
“For this toy we pulled in a Hasbro team of experts with experience on various brands that utilize animatronic technology. One of the biggest challenges we faced was incorporating as much lifelike motion as possible, all while using simple mechanics in order to keep the toy at an affordable price point,” says Stratford. “Our team explored many different materials in order to make The Child Animatronic Edition look and feel like it does on The Mandalorian series.”
Hold up. Check out this video of the new toy:

Set your wallets to spend! This Animatronic Edition “The Child” from The Mandalorian is like nothing your toy collection has seen before. A fully animatronic figure that has over 25 sound and motion combinations, it’s an incredible little piece of technology that just feels alive.
I mean, there are going to be a whole lot of children expecting this little dude to take a Force nap with them in december.
But I digress.

Magic, really, is what toymakers do. Through play and collecting we get to experience fantastical things that would otherwise be impossible to reach out and touch. And The Child Animatronic Edition is a wonder of toymaking.
