The Child[1] is the next LEGO set I received on my birthday. I wasn't sure I wanted to go for 'living' LEGO Star Wars sets, but I am happy to have it now. Just means I will need to get Yoda[2] now also. The size and proportions are very nice and makes it look cute.

History of the child (Grogu)

a male Force-sensitive Jedi and Mandalorian foundling who belonged to the same species as Jedi Grand Master Yoda and Jedi Master Yaddle. Grogu was born in the year 41 BBY, and was raised at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.

Grogu was eventually held at a hideout run by Nikto mercenaries on Arvala-7 during the New Republic Era, having survived the siege of the Jedi Temple decades prior. While still an infant at the age of fifty years, he was sought, on behalf of Moff Gideon, by an Imperial who hired Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin to retrieve him.[3]

Interactive parts

There are a few interactive bits with this kit:

Rotate the head

The head can be rotated all the way around, there is also a slight tilt possible but not much.


Open/Close mouth

The mouth can be open and close giving The Child different expressions.


Rotate ears

The ears can rotate up and down, which also helps giving The Child different expressions.
