ACNH Build-A-Bear Collection Characters, Products, Configurations & Price

There are only two characters included in the Animal Crossing New Horizons collection: Isabelle and Tom Nook, each comes with their Summer outfits and music or phrases, the phrase has a few sound effects they do and the music is just the ACNH theme. No more villagers, not to mention new ACNH items like Mario Crossover. A lot of players really hope to see some special characters like Celeste, but this is the entire collection. Isabelle and Tom Nook look really cute, but if you are not interested in these two villagers, it might not be worth getting them. They aren't exactly the cheapest thing out there and if want to get them, you’ll have to go online. They will be available in stores later this summer. 

A total of four configurations you can choose with $51:

Isabelle Summer Gift Bundle with Phrases 

Isabelle Summer Gift Bundle with Theme Music 

Tom Nook Summer Gift Bundle with Phrases 

Tom Nook Summer Gift Bundle with Theme Music


Rumors of Animal Crossing Build-A-Bear Collection

There were some rumors going around that the collection would actually have more characters in it like special characters and villagers that we know and love because when you type in these characters names on the Build-A-Bear site, it would actually come up to the Animal Crossing waiting page for them, so a lot of people really did believe that we're going to see a lot more characters, but sadly that just did not come to pass and in the end, we just got but because they have put these names into their website for some reason, maybe in the future, we could actually see a bigger collection.
