Build-A-Bear Is Launching a New Doctor Who Line
Doctor Who's eponymous Doctor has taken many forms, but none has been as adorable as these new toys from Build-A-Bear. As Comicbook reports, the custom stuffed animal workshop is releasing special-edition Doctor Who bears to celebrate the return of the long-running show earlier this year.
Series 12 of Doctor Who premiered on January 1, 2020, on BBC America, and will run through March 1. Since debuting in 1963, the sci-fi show has featured 13 different Doctors. The current Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, is the first woman to fill the role.
Starting February 21, Doctor Who fans will be able to bring home the 13th Doctor ($70) in bear form. The exclusive online package features a smiling teddy bear decked out in the character's signature cape, boots, and suspenders while holding a sonic screwdriver that makes a sound when you press it. And because the Doctor would be nothing without TARDIS, the gift box is designed to look like a British police box.
This is one of two options included in Build-A-Bear's Doctor Who promotion. Fans who still hold a special place in their hearts for the 10th Doctor ($71) can order a bear modeled after David Tennant's version of the character. It comes with a trench coat, red Chuck Taylors, and 3D glasses.
Both bears will become available to purchase exclusively through the Build-A-Bear online store this Friday.
