The Grinch is the ultimate anti-hero, giving us hope that even those with hearts 10 sizes too small can come around to the magic of Christmas.

Also, who doesn’t love a story about a furry misanthrope who eats glass in his big bachelor cave and has a best friend who’s a dog?

Build-A-Bear clearly do anyway, and have released new Grinch toys so all those of us that wish we were in Whoville can have a taste of the Seuss life.

Fans have flocked to the store to get their hands on the toys, which comprise of one grown-up Grinch, and one baby Grinch.

For £35.50, you can get an adult Grinch bear, that also comes with an exclusive Santa suit to recreate the night he stole Christmas.

Or, for £41, you get all of that, as well as a voice insert that says six of The Grinch’s most iconic sayings, ranging from his ‘Ho, ho, no’ days to when he’s exclaiming ‘Merry Christmas, Whoville’.

Alternatively, if you bought the bear and the suit bundle, you could add your own voice recordings or even a beating heart, which is perfect for this tale.

Fans loved the baby Grinch toy so much that the adorable £10 plushie has already sold out.

It was an online exclusive, which means you can’t head to your local to store to see if they’ve got any left.

You can hope and pray – and send a letter to Santa – that they’ll restock the sweet toy, but there are no guarantees. Perhaps a little fairy dust might be necessary.

In similarly Grinchy spirit, Harrods have locked off their Santa’s grotto this year, so only customers who spend more than £2,000 in store will get a chance to sit on the big man’s knee.

A shop has also turned off their Christmas playlist. Granted, it is to stop their staff going completely insane, but dammit we want to hear Slade again!
