The Build-A-Bear X Animal Crossing: New Horizons event will launch today at 9AM CST but I was able to get a screenshot of what will be available.
As expected there will be an Isabelle and Tom Nook “Summer Bundle” with Phrases for $51 each.
Here’s the procedure via an email I got yesterday:
How does the virtual waiting room work?
You will be randomly assigned a place in line in the virtual waiting room. When your turn is approaching, you’ll be given access to purchase the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection.
How is line placement determined in the virtual waiting room?
Guests who join the pre-waiting room before 10:00 a.m. Central Standard Time will be randomly assigned a spot in line once the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection goes on sale. Guests who join after 10:00 a.m. Central Standard Time will file in at the end of the existing line.
Do I need to wait by my computer while I’m in the waiting room?
You can sign up for email notifications to be notified when your turn is approaching, or you can also do other things on your computer and you’ll be automatically notified (make sure your sound is on) when it’s your turn. When it’s your turn, you’ll have a limited amount of time to enter the Build-A-Bear website to purchase the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection.
What happens when I reach the front of the waiting room?
You’ll gain access to our shopping site and have a limited amount of time to purchase the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection and complete your transaction.
Will the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection be available to purchase at the Workshop?
The Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection will be arriving in the Workshop this summer. Be sure to sign up for email notifications for updates on online restocks and in-store arrivals.
People already have them as pre-orders on eBay!
They haven’t even launched at the time of this post.
It sounds like Social Media isn’t too happy about the choices being Tom and Isabelle yet again:
They even got “Celeste” trending because people were mad she wasn’t one of the options.
No Celeste?? Only Tom Nook and Isabelle?????? That’s ok haha I understand pic.twitter.com/cR50c9K76H

Went on buildabear’s website to check out the animal crossing collection, don’t know if I saw the plushies before it was allowed but it looks like it’s just Tom nook and Isabelle, so I’m no longer interested. pic.twitter.com/EhUlYD2OP7

That’d be nice, I feel like they’d be missing out if they only released these two. They’re popular, but they’re not the only popular ones! Good luck to everyone trying to get one today, I’ll be going back to bed 🛏️

I got up for the build a bear collab with animal crossing and it looks like only Isabelle and Nook are available…..
Maybe…. maybe there are secrets once it starts…..
