It is getting close to Valentine day and we are thinking out of the box! And what would be better then a cuddly stuffed animal that you put together yourself!
Build-A-Bear Workshop has been bringing your teddy bears to life since 1997. The Teddy Bear is an icon that brings warm thoughts about childhood, friendship, trust and comfort and love. Build-A-Bear work shop embraces those thoughts with how they run their business every day!
And I honestly believe that. My first run in with Build-A-Bear was last year. I mean I have heard of them but never went in there. But then we saw them at our local zoo doing a workshop. Kids could bring their favorite stuff animal to the zoo and they would fix them up at no extra cost. I called to see when they would be doing that again and they told me it was something they do every day. So armed with my daughter’s very beloved kitty (kitty is 5 years old) in hand we went in. They found a seam and allowed my daughter to push on the peddle to start refilling Kitty with stuffing. They then stitched her back up and allowed my daughter to give kitty a “bath”. My daughter was thrilled to have Kitty fluffy again! They did that for free and they made one little girl very happy. I knew then I would be sure to visit them again!
But enough of that. Onto our recent experience. My daughter was really excited to come home one day to find a very large Hello Kitty waiting for her!
|Hello Kitty came with a cute Heart Bow|
|The bow velcros on so you can interchange it and get more outfits for her!|
|She also came with a beautiful sequence purse (it actually zippers)|
|And pretty sparkly shoes (think Dorothy from Wizard of Oz sparkly!)|
|A beautiful red dress with white hears and a white satin bow completes the outfit|
My daughter is absolutely in love! She carries Hello Kitty around everywhere. The doll is very soft and the quality of both the stuffed animal and the outfit are amazing! She is 18 inches tall so she is a bigger stuffed animal. The bear itself is only $23 and then you can dress her up as you please.
