Merry Mission Tinsel Deer Review (Build-A-Bear)

Merry Mission Tinsel Deer
What It Is

There's an adorable new holiday legend you're going to want to know about, particularly when you see how sweet the toys are. These are the Merry Mission collection from Build-A-Bear Workshop. Over the past several years we've seen a big boom in Christmas-related toys in stores, but you're going to love this one especially. The Merry Mission is all about Santa's reindeer and their annual adventure delivering toys around the world. Now you already know Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and you even know Rudolph (who are also available in the Merry Mission line, sans Rudolph). Now, get ready to meet the newest reindeer on the team in these beautiful stuffed toys. 

As the story goes, these reindeer are all renowned for their speed, which is really helpful for Santa. Twinkle's twin Tinsel is the master of all things electrical. He has a dark blue coat and deep green eyes. You can add his holiday green cape, or his boots. You can buy all of these elements separately, or in various sets based on the characters (keep in mind that prices will vary). Check them out at, or in the Build-A-Bear stores.

Is It Fun?
The speedster deer, Tinsel will inspire roleplay and encourage storytelling in young children, and even parents as they tuck their kids in for bed. The story is adorable, empowering, and sweet, and the toys are everything you'd expect from Build-A-Bear: high-quality, beautifully detailed, and super snuggly. The stuffed animal is well-made and would also make for a great window decoration to show off your holiday spirit. 
Who It’s For
Like all Build-A-Bear toys, Golden Glisten is for ages 3 and up. For kids or adults who love beautifully crafted stuffed toys, these are ideal, and, they could create a delightful holiday tradition for you.

What To Be Aware Of
You can choose to purchase Tinsel as a standalone doll or in a set which contains a green cape and boots. Also available in the Merry Mission line are Twinkle, Golden Glisten, and Santa's original eight reindeer Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. All dolls are sold separately.
