Our family loves Build-A-Bear Workshop! I had never created a furry friend at the BABW before, and I was thrilled to be apart of that! We (Madelyn and I) got to see the new BABW movie: Holly & Hal Moose, and then go to the BABW and make Holly and Hal! What an experience! I love that Build-A-Bear gives children (and adults) so many options for what kind/type of animal/friend they want to create! Not only do you get to pick out your new friend, you can shop in the store for outfits, shoes, hats, coats, etc. for your new pal! I just got an adorable Black Bear Teddy to review. His name is Dimples, and he is sure a cutie!
Caleb is enthralled with his new friend, Dimples. He is really excited that Dimples is all decked out in uniform...DARTH VADER! Caleb has been getting excited about the Star Wars characters (mostly because his older brother digs them) and he was happy to get Dimples in the Darth attire. Build-A-Bear offers purchase options of bears/furry friends by theme, too.
The Darth Vader outfit comes complete with the suit (and there is a special opening in the back of the suit for Dimples ~ or other bears, tails), mask (completely covers his face), black shoes, and the light saber. Caleb really likes to pretend to use the light saber, too.
Dimples looks fierce and ready to challenge anyone, doesn't he?
Oh, but look at his face! He is absolutely adorable! All the Build-A-Bear animals are super cute!
My baby loves the Dimples Bear from Build-A-Bear, too. He loves to kiss Dimples, especially when Dimples has his mask on!
There are over 400 Build-A-Bear Workshop stores around the world, and BABW also has conveinient online shopping selections at buildabear.com. This is a great option for your holiday shopping. One thing that I want to do with my kids is go into BABW and have them each make a new "friend" for their sibling. They could pick out one they think that their sibling would like, hand "stuff it," comb it out, and pick out clothing/accessories for their new animal. Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great place for kids to have fun, design, and be creative. Build-A-Bear has some great new selections for this holiday round up:
Frosty the Snowman, Holly and Hal Moose, Lil’ Robot Hal, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, Brittany, Winter Hugs Bear, Polar Bear, Lil’ Chocolate Cub Dressed as a Boy Elf and Brown Sugar Bear Dressed as a Girl Elf, and more. You can always personalize any bear as you want just pick and choose. Build-A-Bear Workshop offers great selections of bears/friends for girls and boys, along with fun and stylish accessories. We LOVE Build-A-Bear and highly recommend them to you! Hey, if you are a "last minute shopper," Build-A-Bear has a great online checkout ready to roll!
