He’s a mean one, but he’s cute!
Build-A-Bear just unveiled the holiday season’s most notorious scene-stealer — the Grinch — as a brand-new plush toy, complete with his signature Santa suit for pillaging the town of Whoville in the middle of the night.
For an extra $7, you can add six phrases to the Grinch plush that he will say when kids squeeze him. Some doozies? “What’s Santa have that I don’t?” and “It’s time to steal Christmas,” with the best possibly being, “Ho! Ho! … No.”
The toys come at a perfect time for the Dr. Seuss villain’s newest appearance in The Grinch. Out Friday, the animated film leverages the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, with a supporting cast including Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson and Angela Lansbury.
