Talking Point: The Build-A-Bear Animal Crossing Collection Is A Bit Rubbish

Isabelle & Tom Nook

Build-A-Bear is a horrific child’s play-shop where your young ones can watch their new best friend being turned from an empty, lifeless skin into a fluffed and stuffed bear-shaped thing. You can even buy tiny bear clothes. It’s quite the pitch, and one that was so successful that the company can usually be found in malls and shopping centres all over the place.

When Build-A-Bear announced their upcoming collaboration with Animal Crossing: New Horizons last month, people were understandably excited, and though the company didn’t confirm which characters would be imminently plushified, rumours ran wild. Of course, Tom Nook and Isabelle would probably make it in, but would we see KK Slider? Stitches? Everyone’s favourite businesscat, Raymond?

Unfortunately for some, when the sale went live today (and yes, we queued for over an hour to find this out), the only available plushies were Tom Nook (in his holiday outfit) and Isabelle (in a pink shirt). What’s more, they come pre-stuffed and pre-dressed, so they’re not customisable at all – except for being able to change the sound that comes out of them.
