Build-A-Bear releases Grinch toy just in time for holidays



    Build-A-Bear says the Grinch plush and pre-stuffed Young Grinch are unfortunately sold out due to overwhelming popularity.

    The plush sold out within a few weeks of the launch on November 1 and the store said they have no plans to restock them to stores or online.

    "We regret any disappointment experienced by our Guests as a result of reports that our Grinch furry friends are still available for purchase," Build-A-Bear said in a statement.


    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Build-A-Bear got an idea. An awful idea. A wonderful, *awful* idea.

    Maybe not so awful, but the stuffed animal store has a new release just in time for the holiday season.

    You, or your kids, can now own your own Grinch, complete with accessories.

    He's even got a smirk that makes this stuffed animal pretty authentic.

    The plush sells for $25.50, but the Santa suit goes for an extra $16.

    Other accessories include a sound box that will loop through six Grinchy quotes for another $7.

    So, with all the accessories, it will cost you $48.50.

    If you're not ready to fork over $50 for a plush, Build-A-Bear has a smaller, pre-stuffed, Grinch for $12.50.

    And if you're more traditional, they have a teddy bear with Grinch gear (Grinch-themed sweatshirt, jeans, and Grinch slippers) for sale as well.
