Build-A-Bear Snorlax is an absolute unit (and you can buy it now)

If you’re looking for a super comfy Pokemon Christmas gift for the fan in your life, something wonderful and new has just arrived as an online exclusive purchase: the Build-A-Bear Snorlax. A product of Build-A-Bear Workshop, this massive plushie is an absolute unit and the perfect thing to buy as a gift for the Pokemon Sword and Shield fan in your life.

As noted on the product’s page, the Build-A-Bear Snorlax stands at a massive 16 inches (or approximately 61cm) tall. The brand-new Pokemon plushie is so large, in fact, that it can’t fit inside the company’s standard-sized gift boxes or Cub Condos. There’s some nice perks to make up for the extra storage space required, like this exclusive Pokemon: The Trading Card Game card that is packaged with the plushie:

Here are the stats of the exclusive Build-A-Bear Workshop Pokemon: The Trading Card Game card included with every purchase:

HP: 130

A few different purchase options are available. Customers can grab a bundle with an included “Cozy Robe and Sleeping Cap” for $57.00 in the U.S. and £76.00 in the United Kingdom. Alternatively, the plush can be purchased sans clothes for $35.00/£54.00 and the clothes can be purchased for $15.00 / £22.00.

Like many products from Build-A-Bear Workshop, the Build-A-Bear Snorlax also includes sounds. A 5-in-1 Snorlax sound will give some adorable noises to your extra fluffy friend. This can also be purchased separately for $7.00 in the U.S., although it’s not available as a separate purchase option in the U.K. for some reason. It should also be noted that the sound effects are not available for U.K. customers.

If this seems like the sort of thing you’d like to buy, you can buy the Build-A-Bear Snorlax at the United States Build-A-Bear Workshop website or the United Kingdom Build-A-Bear Workshop website. You’d better act fast, though — I don’t imagine it will take long for this absolute unit to sell out!
