The holiday season certainly has it's nostalgic elements. Even though every year brings us something new, especially holiday movies (looking at you Hallmark.) But there is a reason there are certain holiday movies that we come back to year after year for as long as we remember. And this year, stuffed animal giant Build-A-Bear is tapping into that holiday movie nostalgia with some furry versions of classic characters.
Who doesn't know the movie A Christmas Story? It is so popular that there is a cable network that shows it for 24 hours straight going into Christmas Day. One of the most iconic images of the movie is of Ralphie in the pink bunny suit. If that's one of your favorite Christmas movie moments, you can now have a Ralphie bear of your very own.
Build-A-Bear's special A Christmas Story bear had Ralphie's blue eyes and the movie's logo on it's chest. It's feet are padded with a Ralphie plaid print. You can buy the bundle, which includes the limited edition bear and the full bunny suit with glasses for $51. You can buy the bear by himself sans costume for $29. If you choose to purchase the bundle, you can get your Ralphie dressed or undressed.
Maybe you're more into the crude humor of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for your holiday movie nostalgia. Build-A-Bear has a Christmas movie bear for you too. Even if you're not a huge fan, the holiday exploits of the Griswold family have made you laugh. Especially wacky cousin Eddie. The National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation bear is a smaller furry version of Cousin Eddie in his shorty robe and furry hat.
This brown bear comes with the movie's logo embroidered on his chest and a holiday print on his paws. You can buy the green eyed cute by himself for $29, or you can get the movie bundle, bear and outfit (dressed or undressed) for $51.
And if you didn't get a chance to purchase one last year, Build-A-Bear has brought back their plush version of The Grinch. Fashioned after last year's full length feature The Grinch, our favorite green guy with a heart three sizes too small is $29 by himself. His bundle includes his Santa jacket and hat, and a 6 in 1 sayings box you can put in him. The Grinch bundle is $52.
No matter what your favorite classic Christmas movie is, Build-A-Bear has you covered this year!
