If you loved the characters Jack and Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, then you might want to get your hands on these adorable teddy bear versions of the icons created by Build-A-Bear!
Build-A-Bear was founded by Maxine Clark in 1997, when she opened the first-ever workshop in the Saint Louis Galleria Mall. Maxine’s vision was to create a destination where children could make their own personalized “furry friends”. People kept coming back and loved the idea having an emotional connection with the stuffed toys that the create. So it is unsurprising to know that the workshop has now over 400 locations worldwide.
Fans of Halloween-Christmas fusion movies would surely love Build-A-Bear’s new cute and quirky teddy bear collection featuring Jack and Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. However, the cuddly versions of the characters are still sold out as of writing.
The iconic Tim Burton movie was released in 1993 and revolved around the tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. He accidentally crosses dimensions to Christmas Town and found its bright colors and warm spirits attractive, so he plots to bring Christmas into his world by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over his role. Sally, a rag doll woman that is secretly in love with Jack, sticks by his side through his many adventures and blunders.
Through an Instagram post, Build-A-Bear announced the availability of the plush versions of Jack and Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
Staying true to the Jack Skellington movie character, its teddy-bear version is donned in a black and white tuxedo with a stylish bowtie. The bundle, which includes his clothes and “This Is Halloween” music chip, would cost you $55. But if you would like to purchase these items separately, you may buy the teddy bear unclothed for $29, his outfit for $18, and the music chip for $8.
Sally the ragdoll bear with “Sally’s Song” music and her colorful stitched dress costs $53 in all. You also have the option to buy just the bear for $29, the dress for $16, and the music chip for $8.
Unfortunately, both bears are currently out of stock. An important thing to note is that these bears are only available online, so you better check the Build-A-Bear website from time to time.
But while the bears aren’t available yet, you may check these other stores that have also come up with their own collections featuring the characters from the Tim Burton film.
Target has released kitchenware themed after the movie. These Jack and Sally salt and pepper shakers are the perfect addition to your kitchen if you’re going for that extra quirky feel. These can be yours for $19.99.
You may also find Halloween-themed items at ShopDisney. This Jack Skellington Cookie Jar costs $34.95, and would be the perfect ornament for the upcoming holiday.
We hope Build-A-Bear will have the Jack and Sally bears available again soon in time for the much-anticipated Halloween!
