Everyone’s favorite blue Hedgehog has come to Build-a-Bear Workshop, along with his faithful companion Tails. This is the first time Sega is teaming up with Build-a-Bear to bring us these adorable iconic characters.
17-inch Sonic the Hedgehog can be purchased in a limited stock exclusive online bundle that also includes a golden ring, and a exclusive 4×6 print. This online bundle costs $35.
Sonic’s little pal Miles “Tails” Prowers is sized up at 13 inches, and only costs $15. Though tails doesn’t have his own bundle, you can pickup a trendy blue and grey Sonic the Hedgehog t-shirt for $7 that will fit most Build-a-Bears.
Besides the universal size blue and grey Sonic the Hedgehog t-shirt almost any Build-a-Bear can wear, you can also get Sonic 3 Special Stage Background Music for any Build-a-Bear. If your an old school Sega fan, try putting the Sonic music inside a Pikachu. Take that Nintendon’t.
While Sonic & Tails are awesome, they are not the first iconic video game characters to make a home at the Build-a-Bear Workshop. You can also pick up Pokémon’s Pikachu or Eevee.
You can now purchase the Sonic Bundle online, or pick up Sonic, Tails, the Sonic t-shirt, and the Sonic background music at physical locations.
Like everything else, its great to see Build-a-Bear jumping on the video game ban-wagon. Hopefully Pokémon and Sonic the Hedgehog are just a prelude of more of gaming’s greatest characters to come. I’d like to see Mega Man, Cloud, Samus, Mario, Vault Boy and many others join the lineup.
If you picked up these awesome stuffed characters, send us some pics. We love to hear your comments, so please let us know what you think about Build-a-Bear adding gaming character, or what characters you’d like to see added to their inventory. Thanks for reading!
