Mario Makes A Really Great Build-A-Bear


Look at these adorable little bears!

Sure Mario and Bowser haven’t always seen eye to eye and fight over the same girl but now they can bond over being stuffed and sold to children at the mall. Bowser and Mario join Toad, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach in Build-A-Bear’s new Super Mario collection out this weekend.

Here are the details from the release:

You can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be ordering a few of these bad boys online, there’s no way in hell I’m going to a mall the weekend before Christmas.

I’m surprised and feel like not putting an amiibo tag on these guys is a missed opportunity.

Happy stuffing my friends!
