Back when Build-a-Bear announced the Isabelle and Tom Nook Animal Crossing plush toys, it confirmed there would be multiple waves of them. Now, we know when the next one will hit. The company sent out emails to people who signed up for notifications. On April 26, 2021 at 7am PT/11am ET, the virtual waiting room will once again open.
This round of sales will function the same way as the first one did. People will have an opportunity to join a pre-waiting room at 6:30am PT/10:30am ET. Then, a half hour later, they’ll randomly be placed in a spot in the virtual waiting room. When their turn comes up, they’ll be able to pick from the four possible Build-a-Bear Isabelle and Tom Nook bundles.
As a reminder, each one of these Animal Crossing: New Horizons plush toy bundles is $51. You get either Isabelle or Tom Nook in their summer Residential Services uniform. Each one also has a sound chip that either plays clips of them “talking” or the game’s music.
Also, there will be additional chances to buy the characters if they sell out. Build-a-Bear reiterated that both plush toys will be in actual stores in Summer 2021. That’s also when another Animal Crossing: New Horizons character will join the lineup.
People will again be able to order the Build-a-Bear Animal Crossing Isabelle and Tom Nook stuffed animals from the official site on April 26, 2021. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch.
