Build-A-Bear is listening, Animal Crossing aficionados.
When a fan tweeted the build-your-own-stuffed-companion company stating that a “build a bear x animal crossing collab would be a cultural reset”, the official Twitter account responded with: “Wow! [teddy bear emoji]. We’re taking notes…”
Since then, the tweet has been liked a staggering 149,000 times, intimating it’s not an isolated request, and a Change.org petition (thanks, MXDWN) – which went live six months ago but has only recently found a little traction – has, at the time of writing, secured almost 6,500 signatures.
