What squishes softly and carries a big lightsaber? A Build-A-Bear Jedi of course!
Upon visiting my local mall yesterday, I noticed that the Build-A-Bear Workshop is advertising a new series of Star Wars themed Build-A-Bears. There are 3 new outfits to choose from: Han Solo, C-3PO and Princess Leia along with a blue "Star Wars Bear" that has a special graphic on the bottom of the foot. These new products will be available starting September 24 and if you visit the store that weekend, you'll receive a FREE Star Wars poster with any Star Wars purchase (while supplies last).
The official Star Wars website shows us more as does Build-A-Bear online, although they don't seem to be selling Han, C3PO or Princess Leia as of right now. They do have Anakin Skywalker, Storm and Clone Troopers, Darth Vader, a Jedi Knight and a puppy wearing Star Wars pajamas. You can purchase the bears for an average of $35 or just the outfits for $15. I can't believe they aren't selling an Ewok or Wookie though. Maybe they'll expand later on. Either way, ADORABLE!
