Christmas has arrive at Build-a-Bear Workshop Australia, and there are some irresistible bears to choose from, including a Christmas Grinch, classic Nutcracker bear - even Santa's Reindeer! You can buy them online or at Build-a-Bear Workshops now.
The release of release of the fabulous Build-a-Bear Grinch Bear is perfectly timed to coincide with The Grinch movie which is set to hit Australian screens on the 29th November.
The Grinch bear ($40) is very true to the original character we all know and love: there's a whole lot of green, a pair of iconic brooding eyebrows, and a tuft of Grinch hair to play with. Optional extras include Grinch slippers ($20) and a Grinch hoodie ($15).
Build-a-Bear has also taken inspiration from another classic Christmas tale with its Nutcracker bear ($49). This one comes just prior to the release of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms movie, which is set to hit screens on the 22nd November.
Optional extra for the Nutcracker bear are a ballet outfit ($27.50), which comprises slippers, bow and dress; and you can also buy a sound card for this bear ($7) to really bring it to life.
It doesn't end there, though. Build-a-Bear Workshop has also just released its own signature Christmas bear called Timeless Teddy ($25), and he's adorable!
Christmas accessories for Timeless Teddy include a Santa suit ($25), and festive booties ($12.50).

Remember that if you buy bears online, they will come already stuffed. If kids want to build their own bears, they'll need to head to a Build-a-Bear Workshop.
All bears come with a birth certificate and, speaking from experience, they make very special gifts that will be loved for years. (Our rainbow bear is still a favourite five years later!)
Standard shipping is $9.85.
