It’s about time this happened.

One of the most memorable scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy is the coda, where an adorable baby version of Groot dances along to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”.

It didn’t take long for people to start selling homemade versions of Baby Groot (or provide instructions for how to make your own), but Marvel Entertainment and KIDdesigns have announced that an officially licensed version will be available later this year, just in time to sprout under your Christmas tree.

Mashable reports that the Baby Groot will set you back $14.99 and also has a built-in speaker to play (of course) “I Want You Back”.

There’s also a Funko bobblehead version of Groot, so you can stick him on your dashboard and he can dance along to your Awesome Mix Vol. 1.
