The merchandise includes a Star Wars bear ($22), bear-sized character costumes (such as Darth Vader, Jedi Knight and Princess Leia) and a Star Wars theme song sound chip to be added to any plush. Shoppers who purchase an item from the new line will receive a free exclusive Star Wars poster from Sept. 24 to 26.
"These new items are must
haves for Star Wars fans and collectors and are designed to turn furry friends into the coolest characters to ever hit the galaxy," says Maxine Clark, founder and chief executive bear of Build-A-Bear Workshop. "Build-A-Bear Workshop is excited to celebrate the out-of-this-world product by hosting in-store giveaways for kids of all ages."
