Build-A-Bear Workshop is teaming up with Rebel Girls, a global empowerment brand dedicated to raising a confident generation of girls. The Rebel Girls collection is inspired by the stories of four women featured in the Rebel Girls Lead: 25 Tales of Powerful Women book.
There is one plush bear in the collection that kids can dress up in outfits and accessories based on Kamala Harris, Harriet Tubman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Cleopatra. The Online Exclusive Rebel Girls Bear is $29 on its own and features brown fur, turquoise material on the ears and feet, and the Rebel Girls logo on its left foot. For $36.50, the Online Exclusive Rebel Girls Bear Gift Set also includes a Rebel Girls T-shirt for the bear that says, “Confidence is a superpower.”
The Kamala Harris Gift Set comes with an American Flag that attaches to the bear’s hand and a teddy bear T-shirt with an illustration of the Vice President on it with the quote, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I won’t be the last.” The Harriet Tubman Gift Set features a plush lantern that the bear can hold and a teddy bear T-shirt with the quote, “I have heard their groans and signs and seen their tears, and I would give every drop of blood in my veins to free them.” The Ruth Bader Ginsburg set comes with a plush gavel and a T-shirt that says, “I dissent.” The Cleopatra set comes with an Egyptian-inspired headpiece for the bear and a teddy bear T-shirt that says, “I will not be triumphed over.”
