My son went with his school to make a bear for the classroom batchelor-bear! They all had such fun and each got to put a heart in Honey Bear (I'm not CPR'ing THAT one!!) but it's all my son talked about that day. We have promised him to go for his birthday as he wanted a bear on the day and he's already planned which one - named it and chosen the outfits........he as another 21 days to wait yet!!
these people are simply geniuses! My daughter had lots of bears, but never one she specifically loved... She got one from here and because of the process where she made him, she never leaves anywhere without him!!!!! It's amazing... he's now off to get a girlfriend after xmas, is getting married in March, will have a baby on her birthday and the life of this bear goes on! Not to mention his furniture!!!!!
if you like arts and crafts this is a good website, lots of choice of outfits, bears etc and good company information. Slightly childish design, more aimed at children although it would be adults doing the ordering so have lost a star for that reason.
Having family all over the UK and lots of them having babies and small children, Build A Bear is wonderful for presents. My children have even given me a bear-Coco-who does not aggravate my allergies. We have passports for all of our many Build A Bear creatures and take them camping etc. For many years I haven't had to think about stocking fillers etc because one of the animal needs new pants or shoes or a dressing up outfit.
my daughter is always looking on here for what outfit her build a bear NEEDS next! She loves it and its good to be able to see whats on offer before she drags me to the shops! good online offers sometimes too
