Even though it's technically still summer, fall is already in full swing. If you're one of the many people who truly love fall, you're likely thinking ahead to Halloween. And you're not alone. Stores are already beginning to tempt us with giant bags of candy. But it's not just candy, pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns are popping up too. And speaking of Jack and pumpkins, Build-A-Bear is doing The Nightmare Before Christmas themed bears this year!
The classic Disney/Tim Burton film is always heavily promoted around this time of year. And these bear versions Jack Skellington and Sally is a good example of why. Each character bear comes in an exclusive bundle. The bundle includes the bear, their signature outfit and a song clip you can put inside the bear. That's right, you get to hear Danny Elfman's classic songs as well.
Jack gets one of the film's most known songs, "This is Halloween." And Sally comes with her signature song, "Sally's Song."
Jack's bear is a furry, stuffed version of the believed movie character. "It's The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town himself! Jack Skellington is a whimsically dark stuffed animal," says the description on the website. And it's true! Instead of his round pumpkin/skeleton head, he looks like a bear, complete with ears. But he still has his signature skeleton markings, including on his toes and fingers. The bear has Jack's signature pinstripe suit, which still retains the spiky lapels. If you've ever wanted to cuddle with the Pumpkin King, this is certainly the best opportunity.
And his friend Sally is just as wonderful. Just like in the movie, Sally has a sweet smile on her ragdoll face. Except this Sally has cute little bear ears that stick out from her red hair. "Sally is stitched together with love and includes her own dress with her signature patchwork print," reads her description. Much like Jack, her face has all of the same stitches. And if you press on her paw, she will play her beautifully melancholy theme song just like in the movie.
Both character bundles are online exclusives, which makes them even more special. Jack's bundle retails for $55, and Sally's for $53.
