A pretty long list of stores will carry the products, including Amazon, Zazzle, Target, Kohl's, Macy's, Hot Topic, and Box Lunch, according to CNBC.

In fact, two T-shirts have already hit Amazon and can be bought here and here.

"Baby Yoda" is the nickname everybody has given to the creature that's featured prominently in the now three-episode space Western. If you want to be among the first people to see them, you'd better set your alarm pretty early in the morning (or stay up extremely late).

With this sort of roll out before the holidays, it is highly likely this merchandise will include items themed around Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as well.

When Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) jokes that the Mandalorian's clients might eat the baby or turn it into a wall-hanging, Mando looks more anxious than amused.
