If you thought sharks weren't cute and cuddly, think again. Two adorable shark-y friends just landed at Build-a-Bear Workshop, and they pretty much just won Shark Week.
You've got a choice of Tiger Shark and Whale Shark at the Workshop, and they are both $40 each, and that's without accessories. Both of these ocean-dwellers have little pectoral fins, a dorsal fin, big black eyes, a toothy grin, and surprisingly - legs! (Who knew?!)
In terms of accessories, there are some shark boxers for $6, and a brilliant shark hat for $10. I also spotted a rather hilarious snorkel and flippers set for $15. The promotional images show the sharks holding surfboards (because these guys can ride a tube like no one else), so keep an eye out in-store for those.
Not into sharks? Don't worry, there's loads of other cuteness to choose from at Build-a-Bear right now, including the magnificent Lion King bears, new Winnie the Pooh bears, and the Toy Story gang. I don't think there's ever been a better batch of bears to choose from, actually.
Don't forget, if you order bears online, they come already stuffed. If your kids would like to build their own bear, you will need to head to your nearest Workshop.
