Build-A-Bear is Releasing a Third Animal Crossing: New Horizons Plush This Summer

Which New Island Friend Could Be Coming to Visit?

We’re not sure if anyone expected Animal Crossing: New Horizons to have this kind of staying power, but it’s clear that these adorable little critters aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, they’re celebrating their continued popularity with another Build-A-Bear collaboration. Yes, you heard us right–there’s going to be three cute islanders you can buy on the Build-A-Bear website. We know who the first two are because Isabelle and Tom Nook have previously appeared in the shop and promptly sold out, but who is the third? Our guess, like many others, is that K.K. Strider will be making a plushie appearance. The only drawback is that K.K. wouldn’t come with a summer outfit. Maybe he’d be packaged with his guitar?

Last time, the Animal Crossing collection went live with relatively little warning, so keep an eye on the Build-A-Bear page if you need these plushie friends in your life. If you want Isabelle or Tom Nook, you can sign up now to be notified when they’re back in stock, but if you want the third plush, you’ll probably need to do a lot of hovering. Once the new toy is announced and images of it are shown off on the site, you can enter a virtual waiting room and wait for a chance to buy it. Assuming you’re selected, of course.

The sooner you enter the waiting room, the better the odds of you actually getting one. And remember, you can only buy one of each plushie, so pick your very favorite.
