Build-A-Bear Workshop has announced that it has a new partnership with The Pokemon Company. This will see Pikachu becoming a customizable stuffed toy soon.
Starting from 2016 the Pikachu stuffed toy will be available in Build-A-Bear’s stores around the globe. Slowly but surely, the toy is expected to make its way to all stores of the brand which are more than 400. Naturally it will be available online, too.
As you can expect, it will feature lots of Pokemon-themed accessories. You will be able to dress up Pikachu in a Poke Ball hoodie, Charizard costume and other fun items. There will be a sound module available too, if you want your stuffie to be able to say a few phrases.
Naturally, you can fully customize your Pikachu toy and dress him up in outfits from other product lines, give him other accessories and etc. People who get the Build-A-Bear Pikachu stuffed toy will receive a branded Pokemon trading card as a free bonus.
At the moment the company is not disclosing additional information about the availability of Pikachu, how the toy will look like and what the price will be. These details should be available at a later date, closer to the release of the toy.
