This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Patricia B!
The other day, my little boy received the most adorable “box.” In fact, yesterday he told me that he needed to put his snowman in his house. Don’t you just love Build-A-Bear Workshop? Last year we reviewed Hal the Moose (which is just adorable!) and my son still loves to cuddle up with him! Build-A-Bear Workshop (if you’ve never heard of the store) offers children a unique opportunity to create their own stuffed animal. It’s an experience I’d really like to share with my son (when I’m not almost 8 months pregnant!).
This holiday season, Build-A-Bear Workshop is offering an array of affordable gifts for children. A first for the company is their “Gifts on the Go,” a selection of “customized furry friends that are stuffed, dressed, and conveniently packaged in gift sets.” If you’re familiar with the store, then you know that children can create the bear from start to finish including stuffing, dressing, and boxing them up. If you’re an online shopper and don’t have time to run into the store, you can still purchase an adorable gift with prices starting at $15. Some stores will also feature a special Build-A-Gift station offering pre-stuffed animals and a selection of clothing and accessory options all in one place for easy access (available mid-November).
There are so many options available at Build-A-Bear Workshop. One of their latest product offerings is a line of Alvin and the Chipmunks. My favorites are those that you can truly personalize in-store. You can also add an audible personalized message to any bear. I should also mention that any time you purchase a bear (or other animal) at Build-A-Bear Workshop, you can register that friend for free at Build-A-Bearville (it’s a virtual world where friends can hang out, play games and shop for cool virtual stuff).
This year we received Happy Holidays Frost The Snowman. I’m always so impressed with how soft and cuddly their bears and animals are. He comes complete with a red scarf, broom, and pipe (they’re soft). When you lift his top hat, his cheeks light up and he makes a “magical” sound. You can also personalize him by a song, a giggle, a heartbeat or a message. He retails for $30 and is available for purchase now.
There are at least 30 holiday furry friends available for the Christmas season, with prices starting at $20. They even sell adorable holiday clothing to dress your furry friend! And don’t forget that you can also find bears that retail for $10 and $12!
