Hasbro second animatronic toy will be Galactic Snackin’ Grogu, a new take on what most still call Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. It features a host of sound effects, animated motions, and interactive accessories, complete with several included items to munch on. These include a blue cookie from a school on Nevarro and a bowl of soup with a squid-like creature that can be fed with a spoon. Best of all, Grogu reacts to each one, and will let you know what he likes and what belongs in a trash compactor. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
Plus, he recognizes and responds to his favorite toy, even appearing to use the Force to interact with it. This toy was inspired by the events of The Mandalorian Season 2, and is a follow-up to last year’s award-winning The Child Animatronic Edition. It’s set to hit shelves this holiday season, priced at $79.99.

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. 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,” said Vickie Stratford, Hasbro’s sr. design director.
