Build-A-Bear has been putting smiles on kids faces since 1997. Maxine Clark founded the Build-A-Bear workshop, which was a teddy-bear themed retail-entertainment experience. She remained the Chief Executive Bear until June 2013. Today you can find over 400 Build-A-Bear Workshops worldwide with over 120 million furry friends adventuring around the globe. It is such a fun process for kids to experience. First you get to pick out the animal you want. They offer tons of other animals besides a bear, such as kitties, dogs, rabbits, and more. Once you pick out your bear you can add your own Build-A-Sound message from pre-recorded sounds or songs. Once you have done that you head over to the Stuff Me station where you help give your animal the perfect stuffing. Something magical also happens here. You also pick out a heart that you place in your hand and make a wish and place it inside of your new friend. After you give your bear a hug he is then stitched up using Build-A-Bear unique and patented pre-laced system. Then the fun begins, you can give your bear a fluff treatment and the spa, name him, and dress him. Once you are all done you get to take him home and have a forever friend.
Sweet Southern Lovin had the opportunity to work with Build-A-Bear this Valentine’s Day. My girls have only been to Build-A-Bear once but they are hooked. When I told Aubreigh we had the chance to work with them she about flipped out (she loves when she gets packages). I let her pick the animal she wanted and she went with All Heart Pawlette. Pawlette is a very pretty brown bunny that is wearing a Fairy Hearts Dress, Red Sparkle Bow Flats, and a Red Sequin Heart Antenna. When we got her in the mail she came in her cute Build-A-Bear box. She was already dressed but we received her hangers too, so if Aubreigh wants to change her clothes we have somewhere for her to keep her clothes safe. She also came with her Birth Certificate. Aubreigh decided to name her Polly (she couldn’t get out Pawlette) and on her birth certificate also includes her height, weight, fur color, eye color, and a place for Aubreigh to write her name. Aubreigh loved getting her birth certificate for her Polly. Along with the birth certificate came a unique ID number and Key Code for Aubreigh to play with her new animal online for free at bearville.com.
From a moms view: I love the whole idea of Build-A-Bear. Its something fun for kids and the animals are an amazing quality. The outfits are super cute and you can accessorize them in tons of different ways. I love that my little girl now has a friend for life, that she takes every where with her.
From Aubreigh’s view: I love my Polly. She is really pretty with a frilly dress on. She also wears red shoes. Her red shoes always stay on. She doesn’t like to take them off. Polly is my best friend. She comes with Mommy to pick me up from school and I can’t wait to get to my mommy’s car so I can play with Polly. Build-A-Bear is the best.
