REVIEW: Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm
“So this little bogwing is what all the fuss was all about?”
Add the most adorable child in the galaxy to your bracelet for cuteness overload!
It was cuteness overload when the highly anticipated Star Wars x Pandora Collection was released on Thursday 1st October 2020! Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite pieces from the capsule collection including star of the internet, the Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm (799253C01).

Baby Yoda, or as he is officially named The Child, is the new star of Star Wars and the internet! Now he is also a star of Pandora with the ridiculously cute Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm (799253C01).
Dressed in his little robe with his neck nestled into the collar, Baby Yoda’s mouth is set into a subtle smile. One of his ‘magic hands’ is outstretched while wrinkles form on his head as he concentrates. The Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm is made from highly polished silver with hand-applied black enamel painted on his big eyes.
Beautifully proportioned, the Star Wars x Pandora The Child charm perfectly conveys the popular character from the series The Mandalorian with his large head and enormous ears. The normal Pandora hallmarks ‘S925 ALE’ and ‘PANDORA’ are engraved on the back of the Pandora The Child charm, along with ‘©LFL’, the copy write mark for LucasFilm Ltd.
As with all babies, The Child has precious little piggy toes! Baby Yoda’s ickle feet are visable beneath the Star Wars x Pandora The Child charm. A lovely detail which is not noticeable from the official Pandora stock images.
Like most of the new Pandora charms, the Star Wars x Pandora The Child charm does not have a threaded core. Yet it is still quite a weighty charm.
Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite charms from the Star Wars x Pandora Collection. Each review will showcase the individual character with a dedicated design.
Style: My Child
“Such a large bounty for such a small package.”
The Client to the Mandalorian The Mandalorian S1 E 3
“What a precious little creature! I can see why you didn’t want to harm a hair on its wrinkled little head.”
Greef Carga The Mandalorian S1 E7
“Hey, let’s make the baby do the magic hand thing. Come on, baby! Do the magic hand thing!”

The Child is now My Child! My styling with the Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm (799253C01) highlights how similar I am to my new offspring, Baby Yoda. First, set on the retired Pandora Light Green Leather Double Bracelet (590705CLG-D), this design empathises our shared love of the colour green.
Second, we are both incredibly cute. Look into Baby Yoda’s eyes and tell me you disagree! Third we are both tea addicts. Just like The Child, my Tea Cup (709361) is always nearby.
“How much do you want for it? Just kidding. But not really. If this thing ever divides or buds, I will gladly pay for the offspring.”
Peli Motto to The Mandalorian The Mandalorian S2 E1
Forth, Baby Yoda and I share a love of frogs. Admittedly he loves to put them in his mouth whereas I prefer to wear the Limited Edition Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog Charm (798953C00) on my wrist.
Fifth, it can be said we both have magic hands. The Child can do some pretty amazing tricks with his, such as when he saved Mando from an attacking mudhorn in The Mandolorian Season 1, Episode 2. While my own magic hands are a result of the pretty Pandora jewellery adorning my fingers and wrist.
My verdict on the Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm?
The kid’s coming with me!
Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm (799253C01)
- Wow Factor - 8.5/108.5/10
- Value - 9/109/10
- Design - 10/1010/10
- Versatility - 9/109/10
I am completely in love with the Star Wars x Pandora The Child Charm (799253C01)! It has a beautiful design that shows off Baby Yoda to his full cuteness. Although it is reasonably priced it is a little on the dear side considering it is plain silver with a little enamel. It doesn’t have a huge amount of wow and isn’t the most versatile of charms but it is a definite must have for Star Wars and Mandolorian fans alike. Finally in the words or Cara Dune and Greef Karga, ‘Take care of this little one. Or maybe it’ll take care of you.”
The Star Wars x Pandora Collection is available both in store and online at our preferred Pandora retailer the UK Pandora eStore.
