The Fourth and Twelfth Doctors will soon be ready to join your Build-a-Bear collection!
Build-a-Bear are bringing out more toys as part of their Doctor Who range. They’re adding the Fourth and Twelfth Doctors, along with a special soft toy version of K9! These come after previous releases of the Tenth, Eleventh and Thirteenth Doctors. Most of those are long sold out, but the blue suit version of the Tenth Doctor (with 3D glasses) is still available, along with a soft toy Dalek.
The new Build-a-Bear Doctors will be released in slightly different forms in the United States and United Kingdom. In the US you’re already able to buy a complete Bear of each one, fully kitted out with all his gear. However, in the UK, the sets listed as coming soon are simply the Fourth and Twelfth incarnations’ costumes and accessories. So you’ll need to either swap them onto a Build-a-Bear you already own or buy new bears separately. It’s possible, however, that listings for the full bears will be put up at at later date.

One of Doctor Who’s most iconic looks of fedora and long scarf is finally ready in bear size
The Fourth Doctor Build-a-Bear’s costume riffs on one of Tom Baker’s most iconic looks. Similar to his appearance in stories like Pyramids of Mars and The Hand of Fear, it features a miniature burgundy frock coat, fedora, wine cravat, Prince of Wales check waistcoat, and grey trousers. It even comes with a little sonic screwdriver that attaches to your bear’s hand, complete with sound chip.
The Twelfth Doctor Build-a-Bear channels his appearance in The Magician’s Apprentice
Meanwhile, the costume of Build-a-Bear’s version of Peter Capaldi’s incarnation is based on one he wore in Series Nine’s The Magician’s Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar. It features a t-shirt based on the Doctor’s ‘Misty Mountain’ top, a black hoodie, navy crombie style coat with red edging (though note this lining doesn’t extend all the way around the back), and grey check trousers. It even comes with a soft version of the Time Lord’s distinctive “Fender Stratocaster that had been described to someone who had never seen one” guitar. The images of the American version also include the sonic sunglasses, though they don’t appear in the British listing.
Also coming soon, you can even get a cute cuddly K9 as your Build-a-Bear’s best friend
The adorable little stuffed toy K9 is available separately and makes the perfect companion to your Time Lord. All three new items are listed on the UK site as “Coming Soon” but with no firm release date listed. But don’t worry, Blogtor Who will be sure to let you know as soon as there’s a date available. They’re also online exclusives so don’t expect to see them in stores.
