You can buy a Baby Yoda statue in 'The Sims 4' now, and fans are posting memes of their hilarious in-game creations
- You can now purchase a decoration on "The Sims 4" called "The Child Statue" - and it's an adorable Baby Yoda.
- Players noticed that the item appeared on the game's store this week and began filling their digital homes with the statues, building shrines, and making memes.
- Electronic Arts (EA) owns both the "Sims" franchise and the rights to the Star Wars video games, so it makes sense that they'd be able to do a tie-in with the breakout star of "The Mandalorian."
- The digital Baby Yoda has even made its way to TikTok so non-"Sims 4" players can see the creature in all its pixelated glory.

Players of "The Sims 4" have been delighted to discover a new addition to the in-game store this week: A Baby Yoda statue that looks just like the internet-famous character from "The Mandalorian."
Tweets about the new item, which is listed as a decoration and labeled "The Child Statue," started appearing this week. It seems like the statue came along with a patch released around December 12.
The statue is listed as "a lovable replica inspired by the Disney+ live action series The Mandalorian," and since Electronic Arts (EA) owns both the "Sims" franchise and the rights to the Star Wars video games, it makes sense that a crossover would be possible. The official Twitter account for the "Sims" franchise acknowledged the new addition and its viral power in a tweet on Saturday - with a TikTok meme, of course.
EA didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
