Pre-Order A Ghostbusters Build A Bear

In April we wrote about building a Ghostbusters bear. (GBI Blog Post, April 28, 2016) On Ghostbusters Day Nerdist had the exclusive (this is what can happen while interns get some mandatory training) with Build-A-Bear Ghostbusters product photos and additional information. While interns are training and probably rushing to get to work, we take a closer look.

Build A Ghostbusters Bear

If you know me or even visited my personal blog, iRich you know I own at least one Curious George plush. Thanks to the Reys, my mom, a Jersey shore boardwalk, childhood, and probably Gund I’ve owned a handful of Curious George plushes. My original Curious George (since I had from 9 months old) stitching could no longer hold. I’ve probably been traumatized since 1985. The one pictured over at iRich became a replacement about the same time.

What does the Curious One and this Build-A-Bear story have do with one another? If you’re familiar with Build-A-Bear, you already know besides “outfits” for plushes with hearts, at Halloween adults and kids can buy costumes for their personal bears.

In the past as I would see military “flight suits” at there stores I thought if they sold a khaki flight suit (without patches) I could make a Ghostbusters uniform for Curious George. At some point the idea drifted into imagination.

It hasn’t been thought of in years, until yesterday. When Ghostbusters of Upstate NY saw this. Continue reading “Build A Ghostbusters Bear”

Save The World In Your 1980s Ghostbusters Jumpsuit

During the ’80s (near the end of an era) I remember a black and white (their could have been color, but why would a mail order company spend the extra dollars?) catalog where you could order at least a kids official Ghostbusters costume. I can vividly remember coming home from school that day and being excited when “the catalog” was in my family’s mailbox. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was starting to overtake Ghostbusters popularity. I remember seeing TMNT being featured before The Real Ghostbusters for example.

I admit my memory’s fuzzy on which part of the franchise you could order from. i.e.: Ghostbusters, The Real Ghostbusters, Other. I’m not entirely sure how I heard about the catalog in the first place. By the time the catalog arrived I already had a short sleeved flight suit. Family members made me at least a “no ghost” patch. Not sure about a name patch. That mail order catalog may have had a few other “no ghost” logo items for sale.

I’ve never seen the catalog since or any ad for these costume flight suits. Yesterday I got a glimpse that some company actually existed to make these and they advertised. Doesn’t everybody?
