Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, and Toad are getting their very own adorable Build-A-Bear line, the company announced today alongside IP owner Nintendo. Costumes for Luigi and other characters in the Mario universe will also be included in the collection.
If you’re like me and need one of these bears immediately, you’d best want to pre-order via Build-A-Bear’s official website as soon as possible. They’ll only be available while supplies last and, judging from how other partnerships between Build-A-Bear and Nintendo have gone before (I’m looking at you, Pikachu), they probably won’t be up for very long.
If you prefer to purchase your new buddy in-store, note that only select locations will be hosting the collection and that it officially enters retail over the weekend. For those of you purchasing online, free standard shipping is available on orders of $45 or more until December 17.
Official descriptions accompanying today’s announcement can be found below. Enjoy your new best friend! I know I will.
