The Echo Dot looks pretty boring, generally. It's just a smart speaker that comes in gray or white. But OtterBox has a way to make it look much more exciting. OtterBox has just unveiled a new stand for the Echo Dot which brings in Baby Yoda ears. And we have to say, this looks pretty cool.
This isn't the first time that OtterBox has done a stand like this. it had done a Mickey Mouse stand for the Google Home Mini a couple of years ago as well, which looked pretty good. Now, they are doing it with the Echo Dot, and a very popular character – Baby Yoda.
The Baby Yoda stand for the Echo Dot is designed to fit the Echo Dot perfectly, and will keep it on the stand without any issues. It is also using some premium materials. But we know you probably don't care about the materials. You care about the fact that it looks like Baby Yoda. And let's face it, after all of the buzz that Disney got after The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+ last year, for Baby Yoda, we knew this was coming sooner or later.
OtterBox did, of course, get Disney's blessing to make this. Otherwise, this would have never seen the light of day, as Disney would have claimed copyright so fast.
It's available for pre-order
Currently, the Baby Yoda stand for the Echo Dot is available for pre-order. It is listed as shipping on August 20, so there's still quite a bit of time before it will actually ship. And if you want to make sure you get it as soon as it is available, you'd better pre-order now. This is likely to get backordered well before August 20 too.
The Baby Yoda stand is going to cost you $24.95. It's not cheap, and honestly, it's about half the regular price of the Echo Dot. So for some it might not be worth the price. But if you're a Star Wars fan, or have kids that are, then it's definitely still worth it.
If you don't already have an Echo Dot, we'd advise against buying one right now and wait for it to go on sale – or take advantage of the Amazon Music Unlimited promo with the Echo Dot. As these do go on sale pretty often and you can usually get them for much less than the $50 MSRP.
