Nintendo Characters and Accessories Now Available at Build-A-Bear

Bear Mario is filled with love and stuffing.

Sometimes after a bad day, you just need a hug. And if no hugs are available in your immediate vicinity, try building one.

Earlier today, Nintendo and Build-A-Bear announced a new line of Nintendo products. You can build a Mario-bear as well as Yoshi, Bowser, and Toad. Plenty of Nintendo-themed accessories are available for you to craft, too, including a red Mario hoodie, a Luigi costume, a Peach costume, and more.

Bowser doesn't mean to be cranky. He just wants love.

You can buy the new Nintendo line through the Build-A-Bear website now, or you can wait until it hits retail stores on December 15. Either way, if you've got some last-minute holiday shopping to do, you're covered. Prices vary from $35 for Bowser (because everyone wants Bowser) to $10 for Toad (because nobody wants Toad. Captain Toad, on the other hand…).

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
