It turns out Build-A-Bear is one step ahead of you, and their new Power Rangers line is just what you didn't know you always wanted. Just in time for the live-action reboot, this Power Rangers line is based on the classic television series and debuts five Ranger costumes, accessories, and two custom Ranger bears.
Fans will be able to buy a Red Ranger and Pink Ranger bear, and as with any of their other bears, you can add a theme song to them, which in this case features the Power Rangers theme. Other accessories include slippers, Pajamas, and a blaster, and all of these are in stores now.
“The Power Rangers franchise has resonated with fans of all ages around the world for 24 years largely in part because many people see themselves within at least one or all of the Rangers,” said Janet Hsu, chief executive officer, Saban Brands. “With Build-A-Bear Workshop, fans can now use their creativity to further identify and personalize their experience with the Power Rangers.”
“For more than two decades, the Power Rangers franchise has inspired imaginations and spurred creativity in children and young adults,” said Jennifer Kretchmar, chief product officer, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “As we celebrate our 20th year in business, the new Power Rangers collection at Build-A-Bear Workshop will allow original enthusiasts and the next generation of adventure-seeking fans to hug and play with the iconic rangers.”
The Red and Pink Ranger bears will cost you $25.50, while the costumes themselves will run $16 each. The blaster will cost you $10, and the slippers $7.
