Recently, Isabelle took to Twitter to announce an upcoming Animal Crossing and Build a Bear collaboration. The tweet reveals that starting at 10 a.m. CST, the new Animal Crossing collection will go live on the Build a Bear online website.

How to acquire toys from Animal Crossing and Build a Bear’s collaboration

Once the sale begins, you must join the waiting line to be placed in a queue. Note that this does not work on a first come first serve basis. According to an FAQ done by Build a Bear, “Guests who join the pre-waiting room before 10:00 a.m. Central Time will be randomly assigned a spot in line once the Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection goes on sale. Guests who join after 10:00 a.m. Central Time will file in at the end of the existing line.”

Once your turn finally arrives, “You’ll gain access to our shopping site and have a limited amount of time to purchase the Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection and complete your transaction.”
