Build-A-Bear Workshop Offers Kinectimals Enabled Bears

Last Christmas my daughter wanted the Kinect along with the Kinectimals game that has the tiger stuffed toy inside. Naturally, Santa bought the Kinect and the game to her and it turned out she didn’t want the game, just the tiger inside the box. If your kid actually likes to play Kinectimals and you can leave Build-a-Bear Workshop with your financial future intact, they now offer some new Kinectimals enabled bears.

Kinect Bears

There are four bears now that will work with the game, including Champ- A Champion Fur Kids, Colorful Hearts Bear, Endless Hearts Teddy, and Peace & Hearts Bear. Each of them has a special tag on it that you can scan with the Kinect sensor. Once scanned the bear your kid has will be available as a playable character inside the Kinectimals game. A few select Build-a-Bear Workshop locations will have a Kinect and the game in stores for kids to check out.

Along with this, the game is now called Kinectimals – Now with Bears, which is a crap title for sure – but the ultimate in truth-in-advertising. Prices aren’t offered on the bears themselves, but I would suspect they’ll be in the $20 to $30 range each. The updated game and the bears will be out on October 11th.
