When Build-A-Bear creates specific releases, as we have seen with the ‘Winnie the Pooh’ collection, as well as ‘Baby Yoda’, fans often jump at the chance to make the purchase. Now, seeing that customers are waiting over an hour just to get the chance to purchase an Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear just shows that this collection is likely heading toward the same success as others have had in the past.
