Earlier today, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection was revealed from Build-a-Bear. Many fans of the Nintendo Switch game were excited to purchase the Tom Nook and Isabelle bears, but others were less impressed. It seems that many were hoping to see characters beyond the two initial offerings. Many took to social media to share their disappointment with the small size of the collection. There is some hope for these fans, however. Given how quickly Tom Nook and Isabelle sold out online, it seems like a safe bet that Build-a-Bear will offer a lot more characters in the future, similar to the way it releases its Pokemon offerings!

Fans were hoping for more variety.
the fact that animal crossing x build a bear is this disappointing is sad. they literally have hundreds of villagers to chose from, including an entire section of JUST bears.
