Build your own huggable Pikachu at Build-A-Bear Workshop early next year


Starting in early 2016, you’ll be able to customize and take home your very own Pikachu plush at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores across North America, Europe, and Australia. The new partnership between The Pokémon Company and Build-A-Bear Workshop adds the cutest Pokémon mascot to the roster of stuffed animals available to make from start to finish, letting you make the stuffed animal unique to you.

Some of the customizable options for Pikachu are the Poke Ball hoodie, Charizard costume, and a sound chip which will include a few different ways Pikachu will say “Pika” over and over. The Pokémon Company also announced that everyone who purchases a stuffed Pikachu will also receive a special Pokemon trading card for free.

While the announcement has been made, it’s still unknown what the stuffed Pikachu will look like yet, especially with the additional outfits or price.
