Fans of the breakout character from the Disney Plus series "The Mandalorian" have been surprised that there was no merchandise pegged to the character available upon the launch of the show, given that the Christmas shopping season is rapidly approaching. Yet that nickname has irked some fans because The Child is technically not a baby version of Yoda given that the Jedi Master passed away and became one with the Force five years before the events of The Mandalorian.

"Baby Yoda", as it is being called, is no exception; his giant eyes and tiny stature are irresistible. Obviously it will take some time to stock shelves for retail stores, but other retailers such as Amazon, have already started to featured merchandise centered around "Baby Yoda".
Though the creature was kept out of early marketing, Disney must have anticipated how popular the character would be among fans.
But, as a cursory glance at Twitter suggests, Baby Yoda is no mere television character. Here's a look at what Baby Yoda tells us about our cultural moment - and where he might fit into the sprawling, endlessly debated "Star Wars" mythology. They likely belong to the same species, although much of Baby Yoda's backstory remains a mystery for now.
