The most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner. Pretty soon you’ll be roasting chestnuts on an open fire, decorating the house and cuddling up with baby to watch Christmas classics. Now, with their new holiday collection, Build-A-Bear’s getting into the Christmas spirit too.

The collection includes bears inspired by characters from classic Christmas movies, including The Polar Express, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The bears and outfits, which are almost all online exclusive, are sold separately, but can be purchased together as bundles. Also not included? Eggnog and gingerbread cookies.

While the bell may not still ring for you (though hopefully it does!), it definitely still rings for your little one. To commemorate the adventure to the North Pole, the starry night-themed bear has a polar express round trip ticket sewn onto its paw and can be purchased with a matching set of blue and yellow pajamas. The bear also comes with a silver bell whistle that makes noise, so you’ll be able to hear it ring too.

Who doesn’t love the Griswold family from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? Now, you can bring Cousin Eddie home with you. The brown teddy bear has festive green paws with the movie’s logo stitched to its chest. The outfit comes with black socks, a white robe and Cousin Eddie’s iconic green ushanka hat.

He’s a mean one—be he still makes a pretty cute furry friend. With green fur and the official movie logo on his paw, The Grinch can be dressed up as none other than Santa Claus. The outfit comes complete with a hat, coat and boots. Naugty or nice, he makes he a pretty great snuggle buddy.

The 1983 classic A Christmas Story is loved by many. The A Christmas Story bear not only has festive paws and the movie logo stitched to its chest, but it can also be purchased with the iconic pink bunny costume and black frame glasses.
