Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear back in stock, new winter theme added

Animal Crossing Build a Bear Winter

If you missed out on the Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear collection, the plushes are back in stock. Not only do you have another chance at grabbing the summer versions of Isabelle and Tom Nook, but also an opportunity to grab the newly released Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear winter bundles. Just like with the summer versions, they have two available variants with differing sound effects. Don’t expect anything too different though, as the sounds included are the same as before — the main theme for Animal Crossing: New Horizons or character sounds for Tom Nook and Isabelle.

There’s no knowing how long these will be available for, so go for it now if you are interested. The winter bundles are priced at $51 USD / £39.50 GBP, and the same goes for the summer bundles. Honestly, it isn’t surprising how popular these are, as Animal Crossing: New Horizons managed to sell 32.63 million units in just over a year. It is catching up with the Nintendo Switch’s bestseller, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is sitting at 35.39 million copies sold. Before New Horizons launched in March 2020, Animal Crossing: New Leaf was the bestselling game in the franchise with 12.82 million.

Although many people are unhappy with the post-launch content of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there’s no denying how popular it is. Now fans have another Build-A-Bear to add to their collection. Will you be grabbing the Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear winter bundles?
