Star Wars Wins Five Toy of the Year Awards
The winners of the Toy of the Year Awards have been recently announced and is it any surprise that Baby Yoda came out tops!? StarWars.com is reporting that several Star Wars-focused toys as well as The Mandalorian license itself have been honored with five awards. Let’s take a look at those delightful toys that took top honors!
WINNER: Toy of the Year & Innovative Toy of the Year — The Child Animatronic Edition (Hasbro)
Own a piece of an alien species with this Hasbro Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition figure. The motorized movements let your favorite character perform different actions, while a touch to the top of the head activates a variety of sound effects. This Hasbro Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition figure takes inspiration from the movie to satisfy fans.
- SERIES-INSPIRED SOUNDS: Touch the top of The Child Animatronic Edition’s head to activate sound effects inspired by The Mandalorian, including happy and excited, giggles and babbles, tired and sleeping, and Force effects sounds
- ANIMATED TOY: Features motorized movements, including a head that moves up and down, ears that move back and forth, eyes that open and close, and more
- FORCE ACTIVATION: Boys and girls ages 4 and up will love patting The Child Animatronic Edition’s head 3 times for Force activation, in which the animatronic toy will raise its arm, close its eyes, and sigh, as if using the Force
- FORCE NAP: Pretending to channel the Force takes a whole lot of energy and requires a lot of rest. Lay The Child toy down and it will close its eyes and take a “Force nap”
- STYLED AFTER THE DISNEY PLUS SERIES: Inspired by the fan-favorite character from The Mandalorian, this 7.2-inch-tall Star Wars toy by Hasbro includes a removable Mandalorian pendant necklace and premium soft goods robe
