If you were one of the young kids that loved stuffed animals, there was a high chance that you begged your parents to take you to your local Build-A-Bear. The best part about the whole experience there was picking out an outfit and accessories for the bear!
But for the most part, the outfits were generally cute and trendy, the polar opposite of what the rebellious pre-teens and angsty mall rats were wearing. Those angsty kids of the early 2000s were known for shopping at the most iconic store in the mall: Hot Topic.
Now, in the year 2017, a new revolution of Hot Topic clothing is happening!
Build-A-Bear and Hot Topic are collaborating together and have created the Furry N’ Fierce, Bear and Me collection.
Just think of how the American Girl Doll franchise works.
American Girl has the matching outfit options for both the doll and the child; That’s exactly what’s happening with Build-A-Bear and Hot Topic.
And there’s actually a designated Hot Topic bear, which retails at $28.00.
Build-A-Bear was actually founded in St. Louis, Missouri back in 1997. So as the 20 year anniversary hit, the company had to celebrate!
And what better way to spice things up a bit, than with an edgier look for all beloved build-a-bears out there.
As an added bonus to the 20 years of the company, Build-A-Bear has been offering $20 off select stuffed animals when you book a party on the 20th of each month, leading up to their birthday.
So now is the perfect time to pick up a furry friend and get them a Hot Topic outfit that you can match with!
And the rest of coordinated outfits are actually really cool!
