Oogie Boogie is definitely a Halloween staple and we can now get a Build-A-Bear version of him.
Everyone knows the most popular movies and shows that people get into during the Halloween season. Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Friday the 13th, are just some of the classics that come to mind. With October around the corner, we want to usher in the spooky season way ahead of time and there is something special waiting for us. If not Jack Skellington or Jason Voorhees, we also have Oogie Boogie who makes a great contender for a Halloween endorsement much like the rest. Oogie Boogie is a villainous bag of bugs who is always trying to take over Halloween Town. He first appeared as the villain in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas and also features in the Kingdom Hearts series.
This grotesque yet iconic burlap sack filled with worms and bugs is now coming to Build-A-Bear ahead of Halloween. Well known as a gambler with a snake for a tongue and more bugs in his mouth, he is determined to take over Halloween town more than ever this year. This boogeyman is far from the ideal choice of a stuffed toy, but it's actually quite adorable and cuddly once you get your hands on it. This Build-A-Bear Oogie Boogie is the perfect addition to The Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise that you already have and can really fit well with your existing decor.
Taking a closer look at the stuffed toy, we find the antagonist in his signature green body, black gaping holes for eyes, and his wormy mouth. You'll notice that he also has the burlap sack stitches on his arms and legs. His foot has colorful worm detailing along with an epic The Nightmare Before Christmas logo on it. The official description on the website states: "Roll the dice and gamble with Oogie Boogie if you're feeling lucky! The singing sack from Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas may be the meanest man in Halloween Town, but his oversized, snuggly body makes him irresistible. This burlap bogeyman from the classic film includes "Oogie Boogie's Song" on a sound chip, so you can sing and dance along at the press of his paw. Join the seam-splitting fun and bring home Oogie Boogie today!"
This special Oogie Boogie stuffed toy is available on the Build-A-Bear website for just $37 and you might want to get yours soon before they sell out. You can buy it here. With people spending way more time indoors, you can be sure that everyone will want to be done with their Halloween (and Christmas) shopping as soon as possible. With all the rage behind The Nightmare Before Christmas, we are pretty sure that this product will be a fan favorite too. Also if you don't already have Jack Skellington and Sally Build-A-Bear dolls, you should consider getting them as well, to keep Oogie Boogie company. They were a hit last year and are likely to sell out this year too.
Furthermore, there is another special product which is an online exclusive this year. You can also get Jack's ghost dog, Zero, online. The official description states: "Add Jack Skellington's beloved canine companion to your collection! Zero is a ghost dog known for his white fur, pink collar, sweet smile, and pumpkin nose. As the spirited sidekick from Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, this cute Zero stuffed animal is sure to bring lots of spooky snuggles all year long. You can get him for just $22 only to complete the whole set of characters from the classic Tim Burton film." Looks like this Halloween is going to be a real spectacle judging by the kind of merch we have waiting for us. You can check out more details here.
