We’ve long assumed that most customers of Build-a-Bear Workshop stop in to build, well, bears, but we just learned that the make-your-own stuffed animal shop also offer buildable bunnies, monkeys, and even a suspiciously chipper groundhog. Now the DIY ursine retailer is offering you the opportunity to make your own plush turkey. The 15-inch version pictured at right is kitted out with a four-piece pilgrim costume and black rubber boots. But why stop there? For a few dollars more, you can add a gobble sound or a slightly creepy simulated heartbeat. Or go crazy and add a festive “I Love You” sash, aviator shades, or the ability to play “Jingle Bell Rock” at the touch of a button. If your turkey is a fan of Karim Rashid, you can’t go wrong with this hot pink inflatable bed (a steal at $8), a stylish replacement for the turkey coop included with each bird. Build-a-Bear reminds you that as a “Beary Limited edition Collectifriend,” the turkeys aren’t long for their stores, so hurry in or be stuck with leftovers.
