The Baby Yoda craze is such an insane virus.
There is no disputing the fact that “the child”, the 50-year-old green cuddly little creature, nicknamed Baby Yoda is a major boost to “The Mandalorian,” Disney’s original series which debuted when they launched their streaming service, Disney+ in November 2019.

This creature won the heart of many fans and everyone wants to bring it or it’s caricature home so bad, but too bad Disney didn’t release any official merchandise ahead of time. This, according to showrunner and creator Jon Favreau, is because they want to avoid spoilers and protect the secret of The Child from being introduced before the show aired.
This cause many independent Etsy creators to make various versions of merchandise featuring Baby Yoda.
However, many of these creators are now being reprimand by the creative marketplace after an alleged complaint filed by Disney.
According to the owner of YourStuffedMemories on Etsy, the complaint was about the listing’s use of words like “Star Wars,” “The Mandalorian,” and “Yoda,” which are all owned by Disney.
When asked to comment on the complaints, Etsy referenced their Intellectual Property Policy in terms of deactivating listings.
