Halloween will be here before you know it and it’s time to get in the spooky spirit with some new plush bears — and aliens, frogs, and all kinds of creepy critters — from Build-A-Bear Workshop.

This year’s Halloween collection features stuffed characters decked out in all sorts of festive costumes and accessories. Kids can visit their local Build-A-Bear stores or check online for options like the Purple Magic Kitty Halloween Witch, the Build-A-Bear Buddies Zombie Frog, the Howlin’ Werewolf, the Pumpkin Glow Bear Halloween Gift Set, the Mini Boo-rific Ghost Bear, and more.

There are some familiar faces ready to go trick or treating as well, including Grogu from The Mandalorian with a jack-o’-lantern headband and a pumpkin bear wristie; Lilo from Disney’s Lilo & Stitch wearing a pumpkin costume; Gizmo from Gremlins (who makes sounds when you press his paw); a bear version of Beetlejuice (who also makes sounds); and several characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Kids can also customize some bears with Hershey-themed costumes and accessories that feature candy brands like Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s.
