Build-A-Bear is Giving Us an Adorable Green Power Ranger Bear

In celebration of 25 years of Power Rangers, Build-A-Bear has announced a Green Ranger bear! This guy is adorable, and I want one. It comes with the shield, but if you want the Dragon Dagger (they call it a sword) it will cost $12 extra in the US, but just look at how adorable that is.

The bear itself will retail for $28 in the US and will be released on August 2. I’m hoping that more Rangers are announced as well. I’d love an original Red Ranger or the Gold Ranger from Zeo. It’s a real shame the announcement came after the Pay-Your-Age campaign that they had so many problems with. I would’ve taken my baby girl there and gotten a steal!

Chief product officer for Build-A-Bear, Jennifer Kretchmar, said the following:

For more than two decades, the Power Rangers franchise has inspired imaginations and spurred creativity in children and young adults. As we celebrate our 20th year in business, the new Power Rangers collection at Build-A-Bear Workshop will allow original enthusiasts and the next generation of adventure-seeking fans to hug and play with the iconic rangers.

Janet Hsu, former CEO for Saban Brands, also said this:

The Power Rangers franchise has resonated with fans of all ages around the world for 24 years largely in part because many people see themselves within at least one or all of the Rangers. With Build-A-Bear Workshop, fans can now use their creativity to further identify and personalize their experience with the Power Rangers.

Do you want this Ranger bear? Is there another Ranger you want in bear form?
