On Nov. 12, 2019, pop culture was forever changed when Disney+ launched The Mandalorian. Although the Star Wars saga had already established a presence on TV thanks to cartoons like The Clone Wars and Rebels, there had never been a well, good, live-action attempt to bring a galaxy far, far away to the small screen. (And no, The Star Wars Holiday Special, The Ewok Adventure, and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor don’t count, but at least the latter had Wilford Brimley). The Mandalorian changed all this.
The series is packed with motion picture-level production values, A-List talent on screen and behind the scenes (the show is largely the baby of Jon Favreau, a million miles away from his role as Gutter in PCU), and, in general, pure entertainment. Before its premiere, The Mandalorian was shrouded in secrecy for reasons that have now become obvious—it was protecting its biggest, er, asset, The Child. A member of the same species as a certain wrinkled green Jedi master, the character is a breakout sensation that transcends the show and Star Wars itself due to its inherent cuteness. And so, Baby Yoda mania and a million “chickie nug nugs” memes were born.
Since the show premiered before last year’s holiday season, there wasn’t enough The Mandalorian merchandise to go around. As you’ll see in the following gift guide of Mando and The Child-centric items available on eBay now, that is not a problem that the series’ devoted fans have this holiday season.

Funko POP!: 10” Chrome Mandalorian with The Child
TV’s hottest show meets pop culture’s hottest collectible in this super-sized Funko POP! collectible of Mando in his Beskar helmet clutching The Child.
Operation: Star Wars: The Mandalorian Edition
Given the fact that The Child will eat just about anything, it’s no surprise that he’s gonna need some gastric surgery to remove all the debris he’s devoured from his belly – and invasive surgery has never been more fun than in this The Mandalorian-branded take on the classic electronic game Operation. Whoa, dude even ate a Stormtrooper helmet!
Funko POP!: The Mandalorian: Heavy Infantry Mandalorian Vinyl Figure
Although there’s been much exploration of Mandalorian culture in the Star Wars expanded universe, it wasn’t really until the show premiered that viewers began to get a feel of what these noble ciphers were really all about. That said, much about what drives Mandalorians is still shrouded in mystery. But what we have seen? Absolutely bad ass! Perhaps no other Mandalorian other than Din Djarin has captivated viewers than the Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (AKA the thicc one). His flying, flamethrowing antics are the stuff that Star Wars fans dream about – resulting in this popular Funko POP offering.
The Mandalorian: Men’s The Child Precious Cargo Pocket Sweatshirt
Available in your choice of black or navy blue, this 2XL pocket sweatshirt features a typically adorable picture of The Child so that you can keep him close to your heart, always.
The Mandalorian: This Is the Way Poster
Mando and Baby Yoda can become a cherished part of your home décor with this 24.25 x 35.75 poster that comes in your choice of five different framing options. (The unframed poster is also available).
Funko POP!: Star Wars: The Mandalorian: Moff Gideon with Darksaber Vinyl Figure
Hot off of his role as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, Giancarlo Esposito headed to a galaxy far, far away for his role as Moff Gideon. As The Mandalorian’s big bad, he’s seeking to recover The Child for his own nefarious reasons. Despite being the show’s villain, you’ve just got to love Gideon thanks to the menace that Esposito embodies the character with. Then there’s the Darksaber, arguably the coolest Star Wars weapon – and the highlight of this Moff Gideon Funko POP! Vinyl figure.

Judge Baby Yoda by his size, do you? An impressive addition to Hasbro’s The Black Series line of Star Wars figures is this 1.1” figure of The Child that comes complete with several character-specific accessories – including an amphibian creature who is not long for this world. Alas, one creature’s misfortune is another one’s lunch
Star Wars: The Mandalorian: The Child Metal Tin
Emblazoned with retro trading card inspired art, this metal tin (i.e. lunchbox) has Mando seemingly chastising The Child…most likely due to the kid’s ravenous appetite. This one is great as a display piece or to actually use to keep your food in. Unless Baby Yoda gets to it first.
