My 8-year-old self is going absolutely crazy right now.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary — Man, I’m Old — of the movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, you can own your own stuffed animal that looks just like E.T.!

I love that you can choose to outfit E.T. in his red hoodie from the movie! Gah!! It’s so stinkin’ cute. *Heart Eyes Emoji*

This E.T. plush has brown fur, big blue eyes and the E.T. movie logo on the paw pad. You can even personalize E.T. for his adventure on Earth by adding his red hoodie and 6-in-1 sound chip to complete your collection. He makes the perfect gift for movie fans — your E.T. plush will always “be right here.”

And, get this, his right finger glows red — just like in the movie!

Now, the E.T. bear isn’t an online exclusive bear, so you should be able to go to your local Build-A-Bear Workshop and make one of your very own.

He’s only $36, and worth every single penny!

To get your very own E.T. Bear, you can head on over to the Build-A-Bear Workshop website — or — go right to your favorite Build-A-Bear location.
