Another Famous Pokemon Gets the Build-A-Bear Treatment

Charmander is Build-A-Bear's third Pokemon plush.


Toy company Build-A-Bear's lineup of Pokemon sets expands today with the launch of a make-your-own Charmander plush. It joins Pikachu and Eevee to become Build-A-Bear's third Pokemon.

The $61 Charmander set comes with the plush itself, as well as a sound chip, a Great Ball hoodie, and a Lucario hoodie. Additionally, you get a Build-A-Bear-exclusive Pokemon trading card for Charmander. You can buy the pre-stuffed Charmander plush at Build-A-Bear's website right now, while the toy will be available unstuffed at the company's US, UK, and Canada physical stores starting on December 8.

The make-your-own Charmander plush costs $28, while the Great Ball hoodie will go for $12.50. One thing to note is that the Lucario hoodie and sound chip are not sold in stores. Click through the images in the gallery above to get a closer look at the Charmander Build-A-Bear.

It wasn't mentioned what the Charmander sound chip plays, but we're assuming it's the creature's famous "Charmander!" call.

Charmander is the third video game character that Build-A-Bear added to its roster in the past week, as Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails toys launched last week.

In terms of other licensed toys, Build-A-Bear also offers bears based on characters from popular franchises such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony, Minions, and Peanuts.
