Lest you think Build-A-Bear only exists for children’s birthday parties, the Workshop reminds everyone that its cuddly creatures are for people of all ages and make great gifts for all ages. holidays, including Valentine’s Day.
As CNET reports, “Build-A-Bear After Dark” is a collection of plush products for adults “that are sure to make you cuddle,” according to a Facebook post from the company.
There’s a lion in a tux and sneakers that might take zootopiathe suave tigers at work, and a sandy-colored teddy bear dressed in nothing but a pair of satin boxers and a heart-shaped headpiece. He wears red roses, as mammals in love do. Another version of the bear wearing boxers forgoes the headdress in favor of devil horns, complete with a red cape and pitchfork.
Other characters raise glasses and pop bottles filled with “Cabearnet”, “Mixed Beary Seltzer”, or “Pawfectly Pink Rosé”. Some are dressed in leather skirts, high-heeled boots, and/or shirts that reveal their (and maybe yours) true Valentine’s priorities, from “Rosé over Roses” to “Pizza is my Valentine.” . There are even bears made to smell like bouquets of flowers.
In keeping with Build-A-Bear’s tradition of letting you customize your furry companions, After Dark accessories are mix-and-match. So if you’d like to swap the lion’s tuxedo for a flippant beret and a t-shirt that says “It’s Wine O’Clock Somewhere,” swap it.
