Dumpling (also known as Baoaccording to the English Audio Description) is the focus character from the 2018 animated Pixar short, Bao. He is an anthropomorphic bao (hence his name) who spends time with the mother who raised him; however, it turns out that Dumpling is not her real son.

Role in the Short

When the wife's husband leaves, the mother tries to eat the last dumpling which suddenly comes to life, shocking her. Comforting him, Dumpling grows body parts as the mother comforts him. Feeding him to bring him to his normal shape, the mother and Dumpling explore China Town around them as Dumpling continues to grow during their lifetime. Over time, Dumpling continues growing taller and becomes older where he sees some boys playing soccer, much to the mother's worry and Dumpling ignoring him. However, one night, Dumpling introduces the mother his fiancée, much to the mother's overprotectiveness. Angry with him for spending more time than her, she tries to prevent Dumpling from falling in love with his fiancée and eats him, leaving the mother in worry to have no son to take care of. However, the mother's real son (who resembles Dumpling) later arrives towards her sulking, happily reuniting with him just as she and her son reunite with her.
