Hasbro Unveils "Baby Yoda" Toy Line Arriving Next Spring
Hasbro on Thursday unveiled its line of "Baby Yoda" toys, and while fans will be elated, the arrival date of the toys may be a little deflating.
The breakout star of The Mandalorian on Disney+ has become a phenomenon and fans just cannot seem to get enough.

However, there has been a lack of toys and other items because Disney did not want to spoil the character's introduction before the series started last month on the new streaming service.
Toys are now on the way, but not in time for Christmas.
A new line of The Child figures will be available in May 2020, according to Hasbro, including a 1.12-inch Black Series figure retailing for $9.99, a talking plush toy retailing for $24.99, a series of 2.2-inch collectible figures retailing for $7.99 and a 6.5-inch figure retailing for $19.99.
Other fans who could no longer wait for toys, started making their own.
Disney CEO Bob Iger recently told Time that he knew the moment he saw the character, it would be a hit. And he also said it was his decision to hold off on toys.
