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

Merry Mission Twinkle 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. In addition to her speed, Tinsel's twin Twinkle has a voice that helps break through the clouds on the flight. She's a gorgeous soft, sparkly pink with shiny pink antlers and can be accessorized with a dazzling pink and white sequenced cape. 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 supersonic deer, Twinkle will inspire roleplay and encourage storytelling in young children, and even parents as they tuck their kids in for bed. The stuffed animal is well-made and would also make for a great window decoration to show off your holiday spirit. 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. 
Who It’s For
Like all Build-A-Bear toys, Twinkle 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
Also available in the Merry Mission line are Golden Glisten, Tinsel, and Santa's original eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. All dolls are sold separately.
