Build-a-Bear just announced they'll be selling Baby Yodas, so maybe get in line now

Hold onto your light sabers, Star Wars fans. Official Baby Yoda stuffies are finally on their way.

Since the first episode of The Mandalorian aired on Disney's new streaming service, people have been scrambling to get their hands on any Baby Yoda merchandise they can find—a search that has proven fruitless due to Disney's staunch protection of the character.

As of now, you can pre order aBaby Yoda action figure on Amazon, but you won't be able to actually receive it until freaking May. If you want a real stuffed Baby Yoda sooner than that—and who doesn't—you're stuck trying to make one yourself.

But that's about to change.


Today, Build-a-Bear CEO Sharon Price John announced that it has partnered with Disney and Star Wars to bring Baby Yoda to its stores. She said they started the process almost with the first episode, and that the plush Baby Yoda would be available at Build-a-Bear stores within the next few months.

Within the next few months is a bit of a vague timeline, but presumably that means earlier than freaking May. Hallelujah!

"I'm excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined," John told the audience at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Florida, according to Business Insider.

"We now will have The Child, also known as Baby Yoda," she added.

Remember the crazed hoards who clamored to stores to snag a Tickle-Me-Elmo? I think we're about to see a reboot of that mania. And honestly, it's not hard to see why if you've actually watched The Mandalorian. Baby Yoda is painfully adorable. No one can resist him, and it's not just because he uses the force.

It's melt-worthy moments like these top 10 Baby Yoda scenes that Mojo pulled together that have stolen our hearts. Dare you to watch and not fall head over heels for the lil' green bebe and wish you had your own Baby Yoda to snuggle.

I hope Build-a-Bear is prepared for the deluge of business they're bound to receive. May the force be with them.

It's hard to truly describe the amazing bond between dads and their daughters.

Being a dad is an amazing job no matter the gender of the tiny humans we're raising. But there's something unique about the bond between fathers and daughters.

Most dads know what it's like to struggle with braiding hair, but we also know that bonding time provides immense value to our daughters. In fact, studies have shown that women with actively involved fathers are more confident and more successful in school and business.

There is one question chef Christine Ha fields more than any other.

But it's got nothing to do with being a "Masterchef" champion, New York Times bestselling author, and acclaimed TV host and cooking instructor.

The question: "How do you cook while blind?"

Because you're a girl.

I was promoted a few weeks ago, which was great. I got a lot of nice notes from friends, family, customers, partners, and random strangers, which was exciting.

But it wasn't long until a note came in saying, “Everyone knows you got the position because you're a girl." In spite of having a great week at a great company with great people whom I love, that still stung, because it's not the first time I've heard it.

Gordon Ramsay at play... work.

Gordon Ramsay is not exactly known for being nice.

Or patient.

Or nurturing.

On his competition show "Hell's Kitchen," he belittles cooks who can't keep up. If people come to him with their problems, he berates them. If someone is struggling to get something right in the kitchen, he curses them out.

From 1940 to 1945, an estimated 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz, the largest complex of Nazi concentration camps. More than four out of five of those people—at least 1.1 million people—were murdered there.

On January 27, 1945, Soviet forces liberated the final prisoners from these camps—7,000 people, most of whom were sick or dying. Those of us with a decent public education are familiar with at least a few names of Nazi extermination facilities—Auschwitz, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen—but these are merely a few of the thousands (yes, thousands) of concentration camps, sub camps, and ghettos spread across Europe where Jews and other targets of Hitler's regime were persecuted, tortured, and killed by the millions.

What I realized about feminism after my male friend was disgusted by tampons at a party.

"After all these years, my friend has probably forgotten, but I never have."

It’s okay men. You don’t have to be afraid.

Years ago, a friend went to a party, and something bothered him enough to rant to me about it later.

And it bothered me that he was so incensed about it, but I couldn't put my finger on why. It seemed so petty for him to be upset, and even more so for me to be annoyed with him.

Recently, something reminded me of that scenario, and it made more sense. I'll explain.
