Disney Just Dropped New 'Mandalorian' Merch—Including Baby Yoda Legos and a Monopoly Set
Season two of The Mandalorian is almost here on Disney+. I love the fatherhood-themed show, which Bryce Dallas Howard says takes inspiration from real dads. It launches Friday, October 30, giving us something fun to do the night before Halloween—and I’m ready. Or, I should say, almost ready. First, the merch!
Knowing how excited we are, the Star Wars universe has launched some great themed products. And there will be new reveals of sure-to-be-fan-fave merch every Monday after the show. So you’ll see a new episode each Friday, and new merch will appear on Monday: toys, collectibles, apparel, books, you name it. Mando Mondays will run right up until Christmas week with the last one on December 21. Here are some cool favorites already out on Amazon or at least available for preorder to kick things off.
Pop! Star Wars: The Mandalorian 10-Inch Mandalorian With Child Figure
For the first Mando Monday, Funko revealed a new 10-inch figure of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter with The Child. It’s a beauty for collectors or any fan who wants to mark the coming season by sitting this in a place of honor. It’s large for a Funko figure (nearly Barbie-size tall) and made of shiny chrome, so it’s definitely a showpiece. Every detail is spot on!

Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition
Here’s the ultimate toy. Hasbro’s animatronic The Child looks alive and wins your heart! His head and ears move, his eyes open and close, and he babbles, giggles, and gets sleepy (and needs to be put down for a nap). But this almost-alive Baby Yoda is not out until December 15. You’d best pre-order now if you want to keep him from dark forces and instead secure him in your home for the holidays. For ages 4 and up.

Lego BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian & Child Building Kit
I love the idea of building Mando and The Child out of Legos. The BrickHeadz series is fantastic for builders who want to then show off their creations, say on a bookshelf. It’s a challenging build for dedicated preteens, teens, and adults: Baby Yoda has 113 pieces and The Mandalorian has 114 pieces. And those pieces must be tiny considering these each only stand three-inches tall, so they take some dexterity to put together. An awesome afternoon activity that gets fans psyched for the show! For ages 10 and up.
Monopoly: Star Wars The Child Edition
The classic board game gets a very Star Wars spin with this edition. It’s for two to four players and, good news, everyone gets to be Baby Yoda. Only the character’s pose and background color change on the four tokens. The money looks straight from outer space. Players stake down hideouts instead of houses and snap up properties like Razor Crest Storage Bay. For ages 8 and up.
Polaroid Now i-Type Camera - The Mandalorian Edition
Is there a Mandalorian superfan in your family? Get this holiday gift now, and you’re done. It’s the ultimate in instant gratification: Point, shoot, and have an image to keep. In this newest generation of Poloroid cameras, you control the flash and have the option of doing a double exposure. The fact that it’s in the colors of the show just gives it extra oomph and makes it look like gear straight from a space station.

Mandalorian Kids Baby Yoda Backpack
If in-person learning is starting up and your own child still needs a backpack, this 16-inch one has to be the cutest option and a standout in the crowd. Love the froggy zipper pull! It’s sturdy enough to hold all their precious cargo, and padded straps ensure your kid won’t get overtired on their school-day expedition.
