Mario And Bowser Get Along Much Better As Build-A-Bears

Illustration for article titled Mario And Bowser Get Along Much Better As Build-A-Bears

Look at those smiling faces. They’ve had their difference in the past, but now they’ve bonded over the shared trauma of being stuffed and sold to children at the mall. Bowser and Mario join Yoshi, Toad, Luigi and Peach in Build-A-Bear’s new Super Mario collection this weekend.

If you’d rather order online, you can get Bowser ($35), Bear Mario ($28) or Yoshi ($25) today at Build-A-Bear’s website, but then you miss out on the fun of picking their empty husks out of a barrel and having a store employee ask you if you want to kiss their heart before they sew the plushies up. It’s all about the experience.

Peach, Toad and Luigi are also available for purchase, but Toad ($10.50) is a pre-stuffed mini-plush and Luigi and Peach ($16 each) are only available as outfits for naked bears.

Luigi doesn’t get a mustache. Take that, Luigi.

This seems like quite the missed opportunity to kiss and put an amiibo tag inside instead of a heart.
