Ever wanted to have a life-sized replica of The Mandalorian‘s Baby Yoda AKA Grogu on his floating pram? Well, it’s going up for a charity auction on eBay and 100 percent of the final auction price (minus PayPal fees if purchased via PayPal) will benefit ProjectArt.
ProjectArt is a charity that supports the arts for underserved K-12 students by promoting teaching and learning through visual arts. Bidding is open now until 5 March 2021.
Speaking with the official Star Wars website, Mattel designer Michael Kadile spoke about how he designed the prop for The Mandalorian:
After several versions of the molds, I then began to experiment with the process of building the pram.
I was able to document the process so that the build could be replicated, if necessary.
Finally, we painted static models of the pram to best replicate how it looks in the series.
To finish the look, we added some stellar work from the Mattel Soft Goods team with custom ornamental blankets and the project was a hit!
In addition to the charity event, Mattel Creations also announced a new collector’s edition plush of Baby Yoda in a motorized hover pram, with realistic-looking hair and plush hands and feet, as well as a very limited quantity of autographed 3-packs of the Star Wars x Barbie dolls signed by acclaimed Barbie designer, Robert Best.
The Star Wars – The Mandalorian The Child – Collector Edition Plush with Hover Pram and Star Wars x Barbie sets are available for a limited time only starting from 5 March 2021 at 9am PST and ending at 9am PST on 12 March 2021.
