Do you love Animal Crossing? Do you love Build-A-Bear? If the answer is yes, then we have good news for you. And if the answer is no, well, why are you reading an article about Animal Crossing and Build-A-Bear?


The two have recently come together and now Build-A-Bear has a range of Animal Crossing products for you to get your hands on.

The collection was made available on April 6th, to large queue times, and while there have been some fans who have bemoaned the lack of choice available – and we will get to that in a moment – here is everything you need to know about how to start building.

Before we talk about where you can buy the bears to build, let's talk about which ones you can get, as it hasn't gone down overly well with the wider community of gamers who play Animal Crossing.

At the time of writing, the only characters you can get in the range are Isabelle and Tom Nook. Now they do have two varieties of each, but it is a very small range which left fans a tad disappointed as they were expecting more – as were we.

That being said, we imagine more will be added in time and given how popular these ones have been since they were released, we don't think it will be long before the collection is expanded to include other characters.

But if those two sound like characters you want, then all you need to do is head to the official Build-A-Bear store and get buying!
