Build-a-Bear Brings Wakanda to You With Fearsomely Snuggly ‘Black Panther’ Teddy

Vibranium never looked so cuddly

Lions and tigers and panthers. Oh my!

Marvel’s eagerly-anticipated “Black Panther” hit theaters Friday, the same day Build-A-Bear announced the launch of its companion teddy bear that comes straight out of Wakanda. And yes, it’s pretty adorable.

The plush toy (which will set you back $28) is wearing the same suit that T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) dons in the film, which is made out of one of the world’s strongest substances — Vibranium. Of course, we’re thinking this bear’s outfit has to have a little more give to it than T’Challa’s did (for cuddly reasons, obviously).

Ryan Coogler’s new superhero flick also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett.
