In fact, Build-A-Bear Workshop was born from an idea my friend Katie? who was 10 years old at the time ? and I had when we were out shopping for stuffed toys. When we couldn’t find the stuffed toy she wanted, she said, “These are so easy, we could make them.” She meant we could do a craft project, but what I heard was so much bigger. They opened our first store in 1997 at the Saint Louis Galleria in St. Louis, Missouri. Today there are over 400 stores worldwide and over 100 million furry friends adventuring around the globe. We have grown beyond my wildest imagination! I am so proud that through Build-A-Bear Workshop and our entertainment destination, Bearville.com™, we have created a safe place where kids can play, express their creativity and use their imaginations.
These super adorable build a bears are so addicting to own.. They even light up how cool is that.. Just turn on the box, and push the ears and they light up for about half a minute blink and flicker. They are also super heavy which is great to keep them from falling over, its all feet weight which is handy.. They are very nicely done and very holiday decorated out. I love these so much, they sit by our TV and look so darn adorable. They are quality made perfect no loose strands, and no torn pieces, and of course its build a bear so you can’t go wrong their. I have been apart of this company since I was a child, we even bought a wolf at the Great Wolf water park few months back. I want my boys to love this company as much as I do and love how they have boy and girl options. My toddlers love build a bear and hope to keep it that way for a while!
