An invisible man
Sleepin’ in your bed
Ow, who you gonna call?
Sure, Ray Parker Jr., that’s obvious. But what if you don’t live in the vicinity of any proton-pack wearing paranormal busters, and you have to find some way to get through the night with your spectral sleeping partner? Well, don’t worry, because we know just the thing: your very own Ghostbusters Build-A-Bear to ward off evil spirits.
In honor of Sony’s coast-to-coast Ghostbusters Day celebration, taking place today (in honor of the June 8, 1984 theatrical release of the original film), we here at Nerdist are happy to bring you the exclusive announcement of the new Ghostbusters line from the customizable teddy bear company. You can now pre-order your own Ghostbusters bear and stuffed Slimer, which will be available on June 23 at Build-A-Bear Workshops across the U.S., Canada, and the UK.
The 7-inch mini pre-stuffed Slimer, covered in bright green fur and hungrily wagging his tongue, will run you $12.50, and the 17-inch bustin’ white bear, with the iconic logo on its paw, will cost you $25. Also available are lots of other accessories available to make it better prepared for battling the ghosts that hide in under your bed, including:
- A tan Ghostbusters jumpsuit ($13.50)
- Proton pack ($10.50)
- Ghostbusters theme song sound chip ($7.00)
- Ghostbusters furry friend tee ($7.00)
- Marshmallow scent ($3.50)
Yeah, Marshmallow scent! Which brings us to the third and final member of the line, the web-exclusive, 19-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. You can equip him with the theme song sound chip and sweet, sweet marshmallow scent, too.
You can order all three of them now at the Build-A-Bear website.
Because while we all know you ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts, having a cuddly stuffed animal to squeeze when they’re sleeping in your bed doesn’t hurt.
