Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear workshop Isabelle Tom Nook build a bear buildabear

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear Workshop promotion has begun, with at least Isabelle and Tom Nook revealed and up for grabs. They cost $51 each, and due to high demand, you must currently enter a “waiting room” (i.e., a digital queue, as if you’re trying to get tickets for New York Comic Con) in order to receive access to the dolls / plushes / whatever kids call them now. Each one comes with a summer outfit and music or phrases included.

There is very likely more in store where Isabelle and Tom Nook came from for this Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear promotion. That also means there are probably more long, anxious queues in your future if you want to grab these cuties (I still don’t know what noun to use to describe them.) right away. Also, it must be noted that just because you have a place in line does not mean you will be able to acquire them. It’s the usual scenario: If they sell out, they sell out.

If you miss out on Isabelle and Tom Nook in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear, they and whoever else shows up in the collection will be arriving at the physical Workshop locations this summer, so don’t stress over it too much.
