Now-a-days children have the opportunity to build their very own stuffed animal and dress them in one of hundreds of creative outfits without having to raid their little brother or sister's closet! If you think a child gets excited in a candy store, you've never seen one visit Buid-a-Bear Workshop!
What is Build-a-Bear Workshop?
According to their website, " At Build-a-Bear Workshop, our mission is to bring the Teddy Bear to life. An American icon, the Teddy Bear brings to mind warm thoughts about our childhood, about friendship, about trust and comfort, and also about love. Build-A-Bear Workshop embodies those thoughts in how we run our business everyday."
" Build-a-Bear Worship Inc., is the leading and only global company that offers an interactive make-your-own stuffed animal retail-entertainment experience. Founded in 1997, the company currently operates more than 400 Build-A-Bear Workshop stores worldwide including company owned stores in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and France and franchise stores in Europe, Asia, Austrailia, Africa and the Middle East."
Build-a-Bear Workshop has a stuffed animal for every occasion and every person! From the small fry animals for smaller children to bear brides and even Angry Birds Space characters! Here are just a few of my favorites.
|Captain America Blue Cuddly Hearts Bear - $38.50|
|Super Mom Happy Hugs Teddy - $34.50|
|8 in. Angry Birds Space Bomb - $18.00|
These are all pre-made animals. Be sure to head to your local Build-a-Bear and build your own unique animal!
I have loved the idea of Build-a-Bear workshop ever since I first heard about it around 1999 but I have never had the opportunity to visit one of their stores and experience the fun of making my very own stuffed animal. I did, however, get the opportunity to review one of the softest, most cuddly stuffed sheep I've ever owned! I'm 26 years old this adorable stuffed sheep made me feel like a kid again, wanting to cuddle with it in bed.
The sheep we received is part of a very cute Farmer's Market collection that also includes the most precious horse, cow, and pig you've ever seen. Besides the sheep we got, I instantly fell in love with the pig! This collection arrives at Build-a-Bear Workshop on May 4th and you will also receive a free reusable Farmer's Market tote with a purchase of $20 or more while supplies last.
After sleeping with this cuddly sheep for the past two nights I finally let Ashton sleep with his new friend and he loves him just as much as I do! And with his birthday coming up in a little more than a month, he's been asking us to bring him to build his own stuffed animal! I highly recommend the darling new Farmer's Market Collection or any of the great products Build-a-Bear Workshop carries to anyone that has children, that's looking for a unique gift that can be treasured for years to come or for anyone that just loves stuffed animals.
