I’d say that Christmas has come early, but considering the extra-adorable Build-a-Bear Pikachu won’t be available until the end of December, I’m going to have to restrain myself. Still, the customizable stuffed bear company has finally opened up pre-orders for its upcoming Pikachu doll, with two versions to choose from. The standard, in-store Pikachu will be available come early 2016, and can be customized with a Poké Ball hoodie! Fans can reserve their doll for an in-store pickup following the link above. For those looking to make all of their friends jealous, there’s the option to kick in a bit more cash for the exclusive online Pikachu variant, which comes with a Charizard hoodie and six-in-one Pikachu sound! That’s the version which will ship at the end of December, and can also be obtained using the same link. Both dolls come with a Build-a-Bear-exclusive Pokémon TCG card, as well.
So, which will you choose? I… I choose both. I can’t help it. Look at him. He’s adorable. This is next-level cuteness. Plus, that TCG card is looking nice; I’d almost say the doll is worth if for the card, alone! That’s just me, though. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the Build-a-Bear Pikachu!
