Best Star Wars toys

The Child animatronic from the Mandalorian

The Child animatronic from the Mandelorian

The break-out star of Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, was undoubtably The Child, Grogu – better known as Baby Yoda.

This animated toy version of the little-green charmer is motorised, meaning it can move its head and ears, as well as open and closing its eyes.

Accompanied with sounds inspired by the series, this model can closely mimic how the character acts on the show.

Two versions are available based on how Baby Yoda appears in the first and second series of The Mandalorian.

This animatronic makes a great Star Wars gift for a kid or adult who was enraptured by the most adorable character in the Star Wars Universe.

Funko Porg talking plush

Porg Plush

In Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, the island home of Luke Skywalker was overrun by the now iconic creatures known as Porgs.

The creatures were a last minute addition to the film, added to cover up the many puffins that lived on the island where the scenes were filmed, but have gone on to become one of the most beloved denizens of the Star Wars Universe.

This 15-inch plush version is supposed to be life-size to the ‘real’ thing, and comes with an internal voice box that will trill and chirp like the ones in the film when you squeeze them.
