Love Turning Red (2022)? The latest animated hit from Disney and Pixar has led to some truly adorable merchandise, but few items have made their way to stores outside of Disney parks and shopDisney. This just changed, however, as Build-A-Bear workshop just released a version of Mei as her panda that kids and adults alike can create during a visit to your local mall.

The new plush features Mei as she is seen in the film when she “poofs” into a giant red panda. The bear’s face is spot-on to what the character looks like in the Disney+ film, and with a soft fur and a thoughtfully designed bushy tail, the item is sure to live up to Build-A-Bear’s high-quality standards.

The Turning Red Mei Panda can be ordered online either pre-stuffed or as-is for fans of the film to fill with stuffing on their own during their next trip to their closest Build-A-Bear Workshop. The bear is priced at $32, with the price staying consistent for both online orders and those who choose to stuff their bear in-store.
As for accessories, Build-A-Bear Workshop has also created a pajama set featuring additional artwork of Mei both as her red panda and has her human self, along with many of the items you may recognize from her bedroom in the film. The pajama set runs at $13.50, and of course, fans can also choose from Build-A-Bear’s full set of outfits to make their bear truly their own.
