Build A Bear Review,

Build A Bear has become a much-loved company in the hearts of children all across North America. They even have stores in Puerto Rico, France and the United Kingdom, with more expansions expected across the world soon. Their mission is to bring Teddy Bears to life, since to kids, bears actually become a cherished member of the family. They symbol friendship, trust and comfort – so why treat them as such?,At the Build A Bear Workshop, kids can create their own friends from start to finish, choosing clothes and accessories, and even doing a heart ceremony to bring their own bears to life. Yet, If you don’t have a Build A Bear Workshop location in your area, there’s also an option to shop at, and there are hundreds of friends to choose from on the website {the site also has fun games and activities for your kids to play as well}.
For review, my daughters were sent a very special friend, a cream and brown puppy dog that is so very soft and cuddly, complete with big floppy ears.,This is one amazing Build A Bear. He even came with a hip shirt and blue jeans, laid back black & white sneakers, sport sunglasses, a over the shoulder backpack and even an ipod. This all supports his Uber-Cool look, don’t you think? And yes, his little ipod even plays music {which is one huge hit with the kids}! And his earpieces even clip onto his ears, how cute! All the fun accessories make for fun adventures with the girls. Plus, the dog itself barks too, which was such a great surprise to the girls. You have the option for any beloved friend to play sound, and all at a pretty minimal cost as well. For instance his one-shoulder backpack is just $5, and his black sport sunglasses are just $4. I recall having my first newspaper route to support my Barbie accessory addiction, and Isabelle is already saving her coins for more accessories for her Build A Bear.,

He certainly goes beyond the usual teddy, creating endless hours of play. My daughters have welcomed him into our home and he is involved in everything they do. And, Build A Bear’s come with a birth certificate as well, so that kids know that ey are all theirs.

At the Build A Bear Workshop, kids can have so much fun choosing their friends and their accessories. Make sure to check out the Asthma and Allergy safe bears, and the Limited Edition ones as well! And, purchase one of the Donation Animals, and proceeds go to various charities depending on the bear.
