Victoria Justice Cuddles Up With Build-A-Bear

Teen singer/actress Victoria Justice is quickly adding to her resume after signing a deal to launch a line of kids apparel and stuffed animal merchandise.

The 17-year-old Zoey 101 star will design a bear-sized T-shirt with the Build-A-Bear Workshop, which is set to hit shelves in December (10).  A dress will then be made available early next year (11); and she will eventually design a stuffed animal, reports Variety.

Build-A-Bear bosses have previously teamed up with heads behind Hannah Montana, Toy Story and Jonas Brothers franchises on similar deals.  A spokesperson for the company tells Variety,

“Because she’s relevant to tweens, she quickly became relevant to us.”
