“Be a goldfish.” A.F.C. Richmond’s players know why that’s good advice on the pitch, but for right now forget those words of wisdom entirely. (Get it? You get it.) You can forget about being a goldfish because right now Ted Lasso is focused on being a bear. And he’ll be the most perfect bear possible. Jason Sudeikis’ pleasant, mustachioed manager is getting his own plush doll from Build-A-Bear.
The most huggable coach in all of sports (real or fictional) is getting his very own huggable collectible. Starting today you can order a Ted Lasso plush doll exclusively from Build-A-Bear’s website. The standard bear comes with all of the soccer coach’s signature
practice training attire. That includes his visor and official A.F.C. Richmond track suit. The soles of his paws also show off the name of his series and the team’s logo.
If you want a more authentic Ted Lasso experience you can also upgrade your plush doll with show appropriate accessories. That includes a football kit, a teacup (for garbage water), and a pink Biscuits with the Boss wristie. Combined with his mustache and sunglasses he looks ready no matter what Rebecca, his team, or his fellow coaches throw at him. Not to mention he’ll probably have all of his fellow stuffed animals rooting for him shortly after arriving.
Depending on how many accessories you opt for, Build-A-Bear’s Ted Lasso doll ranges anywhere from $44 to $63.50.
For now this is the only Ted Lasso doll in the collection. We hope to get more. ( Especially one for Roy Kent, please and thank you.) But if you don’t want to wait and are looking to pair him with another bear you can always pick up Build-A-Bear’s Devilishly Cute Teddy when it’s back in stock. Simple dress him in a black suit and pretend he’s Nate the
Sorry, we’re not ready to be a goldfish when it comes to Nate. With him we’re more likely to be a bear.
