Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear has gone live

The Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear has now gone live, meaning all hardcore AC fans can try to get their hands on a plushie Tom Nook and/or Isabelle. Not only do the bears look like the in-game characters, but they can also splurt out the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme tune. At the time of writing, there’s a queue in effect, meaning potential buyers are being forced to wait in line.

How to buy Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear

animal crossing build-a-bear

To buy an Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear you must go to the relevant page on the Build-A-Bear website and select either Tom Nook or Isabelle.

The website can be found here. However, at the time of writing, there is a queue. Those wanting to buy an Animal Crossing bear will want to make sure that they don’t exit the queue by closing the tab.

Both Tom Nook and Isabelle are priced at $51.00 as part of a bundle that includes the Animal Crossing: New Horizons “Opening Theme” voice box. It’s not yet clear if the bears can be bought without the voice box for a discount.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Tom Nook is known for slowly upgrading the player’s home in exchange for a vast number of Bells (the AC in-game currency), while Isabelle handles island announcements. Isabelle is the friendlier face, but Tom Nook has his fans, too.
