Some things are worth melting for, and in the words of the Stark family, “winter is coming”. Thankfully, 2019’s cold snap has brought some treats as the seasons start to change. As Disney prepares for the release of Frozen 2, the House of Mouse has teamed up with Build-A-Bear.
Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven are all back for another snowy sing-song as Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee return to their roles as directors. Breaking out of the confines of Arendelle, we’re off to discover the origins of Elsa’s ice queen powers and find out whether she’s really alone in the world when it comes to her gifts.
Considering Frozen became the highest-grossing animated movie of all time (until JUST being toppled by The Lion King), it makes sense that companies want to cash in with some sweet merch ahead of the sequel.
Available now from the Build-A-Bear site, these furry Frozen 2 friends will melt even the frostiest heart. The range start from $29 for the basic bears, while outfits start at $18.50.
For those who want the full look, there are a variety of gift sets to complete your frozen fantasy. To be honest, at $35, I’m tempted to stump up for Sven bear. Who wouldn’t want to find that in their stocking on December 25?
If that wasn’t enough, Build-A-Bear will be catching Frozen fever in time for the movie’s November 22 release. All 450 stores around the world are getting a Frozen revamp and will host a series of special activities for your little ones to enjoy.
The Disney delights don’t end there though. After Build-A-Bear unveiled its MCU range where you could pick up an adorable Thanos bear, the fan-favourite store confirms its own Nightmare Before Christmas line.
The online exclusive features two products, Jack Skellington and Sally Bundle – and is almost certain to be a hit among Halloween fans.
“It’s The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town himself! Jack Skellington is a whimsically dark stuffed animal that’s available exclusively online. Fans of Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas can make their own merry misadventures with Jack’s signature suit and ‘This Is Halloween’ song chip included in this bundle. Make every day a haunted holiday and let Jack Skellington sing and dance his way into your collection!” Jack’s product description reads.
Meanwhile, Sally’s description says: “Make a new friendship with Sally! Now you can add the beloved ragdoll from Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas to your collection. Sally is stitched together with love and includes her own dress with her signature patchwork print. Plus, this online exclusive bundle includes ‘Sally’s Song’ on a sound chip, so you’ll be able to hear this Spiral Hill sweetheart’s signature song at the press of her paw. Snuggle up to Sally to make lots of hauntingly fun memories today!”
Both characters will set you back £21.50 for the bear minimum (see what we did there?) if you want the all singing-all dancing version you’re looking at £40 to add costumes and music box.
