Everybody out of the water!
As Discovery Channel’s Shark Week rapidly approaches, shark lovers can show their pride with some new toys and games hitting shelves this month.
Build-A-Bear is back with a new Shark Week collection (pictured above) for the third year in a row. A plush great white shark is swimming into stores throughout July, and a plush saw shark is launching on buildabear.com as an online exclusive. Dandee is also releasing plush shark toys at Walmart and Ahold.
In addition, Mattel is releasing a Shark Week-themed UNO this month; Bright Kingdom is returning with a line of shark playsets available at CVS; and Meredith is partnering with Discovery on a shark-themed bookazine, The Ultimate Book of Sharks, available in August.
Each year, shark fanatics and curious viewers alike can embark on a week-long journey full of original shark-themed programming on Discovery Channel. This year’s Shark Week takes place from Sunday, Aug. 9 to Sunday, Aug. 16.
