Here’s a closer look at the new Sanrio plush toys.

Sanrio characters frequently show up at the retailer. For example, in February 2023 a Cinnamoroll plush showed up at Build-a-Bear again. A $90 giant version of it also recently reappeared in October 2023, but sold out.

In game news, Baku recently joined Kuromi in Hello Kitty Island Adventures. As part of a September 2023 update, her Halloween event appeared and Baku joined the roster of potential visitors. People needed to take part in the event to earn Spooky furniture in order to get Baku to visit and eventually move in, however.

The Purple Kuromi plush and Baku buddy are now both available via Build-a-Bear as part of the retailer’s Sanrio selection. People can find it in-store or online.
