Building your version of The Child, otherwise known as Baby Yoda by fans, will soon be possible at Build-A-Bear.

Build-A-Bear announced at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Fl., that it will be adding Baby Yoda to its ever-growing list of licensed plush toys.

"I'm excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon which is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined,” says Sharon Price, chief executive officer, Build-A-Bear.

No official launch date has been announced by the plush company quite yet, but it scheduled to hit Build-A-Bear shelves within the next few months. Another Baby Yoda plush by Disney will be available for shipment on Apr. 20.

Baby Yoda may not yet be available from Build-A-Bear, but other “Star Wars” characters have already hit the market. Plush for Chewbacca, BB-8, an Ewok and more are currently available at Build-A-Bear. Bear forms of Darth Vader, Rey, Kylo Ren and Lando Calrissian are also available.

In addition to Build-A-Bear, other brands such as Trends International have announced merchandise inspired by Baby Yoda.
