The Build-A-Bear Workshop has become a staple in shopping malls across North America and the UK. Not only that, but with the demise of Toys “R” Us this year, they are the only major toy retailer still in business. The spotlight is on them now, and Build-A-Bear isn’t going down lightly thanks to their innovative approach and intuitive brand deals. This includes their collection of Pokémon-based toys, of which it looks like Piplup is the newest to the table.
With an online exclusive bundle, this Generation IV starter looks pretty adorable. For a price tag of $60 US dollars, you get yourself a Piplup stuffed animal that comes packed with your custom-chosen stuffing, different clothing options, a special 6-in-1 Piplup voice box, and a Build-A-Bear exclusive Pokémon Trading Card. No doubt this is bound to find its way into a lot of gifts this holiday season.
