Build-A-Bear Releases Kinect-Capable Teddies

Microsoft and Build-A-Bear (a store where children can taxidermy the flayed corpses of teddy bears killed in the wild) are working together to create Kinectimals Now With Bears, a Kinect-connected game for the 360.

As the title suggests, this is Kinectimals… with bears. The bears have special tags that will cause them to appear within the game, allowing you to virtually control them and play with them. Considering the high price of Build-A-Bear toys, it seems like a bit of a stretch to think parents will hit the store just for these Kinect-capable teddies but, to paraphrase the Bible, “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for the mall is open weekends and it does have a ball pit and treehouse play center” and, in corollary, “What baby wants, baby gets.”
