This morning, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear Workshop promotion began. Suffice to say, it could have gone better. Everyone was placed into a giant queue, and Isabelle and Tom Nook sold out long before everyone got what they wanted. It was basically identical to Sony’s depressing queues for buying a PlayStation 5. You can sign up for updates from Build-A-Bear for when the products will be back in stock, but realistically, by the time they send you an email, the products could very well be out of stock again. Your best bet is to just wait till summer, when these products will arrive at retail Workshops… or you could play the lottery! My Nintendo is offering a Build-A-Bear Animal Crossing: New Horizons Sweepstakes to win Isabelle and Tom Nook both.
For a tiny 10 Platinum Points at My Nintendo, you can enter to win a combo package of Build-A-Bear Isabelle and Tom Nook from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. There will be five winners total, and you can enter the contest upward of three times (totaling at 30 Platinum Points).
Regarding contest eligibility, My Nintendo expresses the following: “Open to legal residents of the United States, District of Columbia and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 13 years old or older. Sweepstakes begins 9:00AM PT on 4/6/2021 and ends at 11:59PM PT on 4/18/2021.” If you live in Quebec, you have my condolences.
