Touching upon Baby Yoda’s popularity, John said, “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.”

While Build-A-Bear’s business model has traditionally been focused on younger children, almost half of its sales now come from items for tweens, teens and adults, Business Insider reported.
