Build-A-Beary, Merry Christmas!

7 Dec

Well, Build-A-Bear went all out this year in its Hello Kitty plush craze, more than any time in the previous years since it started releasing Hello Kitty versions in 2007. This year alone, we’ve had three already- a red one for Valentine’s Day, a purple one for Easter and winky pink one in leopard print.

It seems Build-A-Bear is not keen on simply coasting along until the end of the year because they’ve just released another one!!! *faints*

Meet Hello Kitty Gingerbread!

Personally, I love tan kitties best because they don’t get dirty easily and can stand more cuddling than the white ones. And with the cute buttons and holly on the ribbon, this one is perfect for making Christmas come all year round!

Also being sold now are three small Hello Kitty frys to complement the other Kitties of the year:

My childhood friend Auden, who is a lawyer in Singapore, bought these dolls the other day- one for me and one for her! <3 She named them Audine (my BAB) and Jenny (hers), as these two are sisters for life, just like Auden and I are! Thank you, dear Auden! We’re not dressing them up because the gingerbread buttons will get covered, and it’ll be a waste of a good design (same reason why I didn’t get new shoes for the winky leopard one- her feet were already too cute!).

Now, all I need to do is wait for this baby to come home. Already, it’s looking like a very cute Christmas!

      Hi, Mesha! I’m sorry but right now eBay is the only option I see for those missing Sanrio friends Build-A-Bear plushes. They have not re-released them, and except for the Chococat Small Fry which is still available in some markets, they are quite difficult to find. Keep an eye out on eBay; one of these days, you’re bound to get lucky. Good luck!
