The line-up includes: Poppy, the positively upbeat queen of the Trolls; Branch, who is practical and always prepared; and Guy Diamond, a popular and glittery Troll who knows how to kick off any party.

Express Yourself (and Your Trolls)

The Trolls march to the tune of their own DJs, and Build-A-Bear Workshop guests are encouraged to style the Trolls in a way that is uniquely theirs using accessories, costumes and sounds. Poppy wouldn't be Poppy without her hair and headband and, as the "living disco ball," Guy Diamond has heaps of confidence but not a stitch of clothing! Guests can add his auto-tuned phrases for even more fun. Costumes, character voices and more – including Branch's costume and hoodie with hair as well as the Trolls "Get Back Up Again" song – are featured in the Build-A-Bear Workshop Trolls collection (all sold separately).

Friends, Cupcakes and Sprinkles

Cooper, the mystical Trolls character that shows off his crazy dance moves and wicked harmonica skills in the film, is also available as a 12-inch pre-stuffed plush.
