Build-A-Bear Workshop is getting Mario-themed plushies


Starting today, you can grab the likeness of Mario and friends on Build-A-Bear’s online store. The collection will begin showing up at stores in the U.S., U.K., and Canada starting this weekend. You can also grab them at the U.K. online shop here.

The full lineup includes a 16-inch Mario Bear complete with sewn-on overalls, mustache, and a Super Mario logo on his paw. The other full-sized plushies include Bowser and Mario’s trusty dinosaur, Yoshi.  

You’ll also be able to snag a pre-stuffed Toad, Luigi, and Princess Peach costumes, Yoshi egg and mushroom wrist accessories, and a red Mario hoodie for your bears. If you’re also one of those types that loves driving others up the wall with noisy stuffed animals, two Mario sound chips will be available: the Bowser 5-in-1 sound pack and the Super Mario Bros. theme.
