The Pokémon franchise is making its debut to Build-A-Bear Workshop sometime this month with Pikachu arriving in style. The 15 inch plush Pikachu has a teddy bear-like body, which can be dressed in all sorts of pre-existing Build-A-Bear clothing. Imagine the possibilities! However, if a pirate-themed Pikachu isn’t your thing, also releasing is a Poké Ball Hoodie, sold separately. It wouldn’t be a Pokémon promotion without a promo trading card – each purchase of Pikachu comes with a Build-A-Bear Workshop Exclusive Pokémon TCG card.
At the price of $60, Build-A-Bear Workshop is also offering a Pikachu Web Exclusive Set, which includes Pikachu, the Poké Ball Hoodie, the TCG Card, and two online exclusives included only in the set: a Charizard Hoodie and a Pikachu voice soundbox. You can hear all the voice clips on the Build-A-Bear website. This set is available for pre-order and ships at the end of December. So far there is no set date when Pikachu will be available to purchase in stores.
