He protects. He attacks. But also, he snacks. In The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2, it seems like Grogu’s biggest strength wasn’t just his ability to use the Force — but his ability to eat too. And because of this quirk that the little guy has, Hasbro is releasing a Grogu toy that lets you bring the snacking Child into your home!
The toy is cleverly called Galactic Snackin’ Grogu, and it’s based on Grogu’s adventures from season 2 of The Mandalorian. It’s perfect for children (and Baby Yoda fans in general) for many reasons. One of those being — this Grogu toy is actually motorized, meaning he moves and even interacts with the accessories he comes with!
One of the accessories included with this Grogu is one of the famous blue cookies that he acquired from his classmate on Nevarro. Next, this Baby Yoda comes with that delicious (we’re assuming) squid soup that he had when he and Mando were on the search for another Mandalorian. And last but not least, included in this is Grogu’s favorite toy: the knob from one of the Razor Crest’s shifters. Plus, when you give these to him, you may even hear him coo or squeal in excitement!
How to buy Galactic Snackin’ Grogu.
The Star Wars Galactic Snackin’ Grogu is currently available for pre-order now at Amazon and other online retailers. It will begin shipping out as early as October 1. The price for this before tax is $79.99.
Over on StarWars.com, Hasbro design director Vickie Stratford revealed what she loved most about getting to create this toy. It’s similar to the other motorized Grogu toy that Hasbro created, which won the Toy of the Year award as well as the Innovative Toy of the Year award.
“We saw Grogu eating his way through the galaxy in season 2 of The Mandalorian on Disney+ and we couldn’t resist the opportunity to bring those memorable moments to life.” Stratford said to StarWars.com. “We looked at a lot of different ways to interact with the character and the concept of snacking opened up many fun ideas for our design and development team to create an all-new interactive experience.”
