Just like you can’t forget Dua Lipa’s super hit song ‘Levitaing’ once you’ve allowed the foot-tapping number to swoon you, you cannot un-see the 11-inch plush Grogu that’s flying off the shelves, quite literally! Mattel’s collaboration with Star Wars has resulted in an animatronic version of the Child that follows you around; that’s correct, a levitating Grogu is going up for auction and comes equipped with a one-of-a-kind levitating Hover Pram. This mind-blowing merch is capable of floating and actually spins 2.5” high when positioned atop its magnetic base. Nestled inside the spherical Hover Pram is a special baby Yoda plush, along with a blanket and necklace to accurately portray the iconic character. Mattel is auctioning off a one-of-a-kind version of Grogu and will not be available at any retailers. Fans need to be proactive as this gorgeous creation will be available to bid on at eBay for only a week.
100% of the final auction price will benefit ProjectArt, a charity that supports the arts for underserved K-12 students by promoting teaching and learning through visual arts. Bidding is open now through March 5. Mattel has many purpose-led brands, and this partnership between Mattel Creations and ProjectArt is dedicated to giving back to the next generation of creators, particularly through the arts. Make sure you have enough moolah to bring this hovering legend home as, at the time of publication, the piece was already over $7,000!
