build-a-bear


Brianna had been wanting to go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop for the longest time. Years literally. Poor thing. We finally live in a city that actually has one, so yesterday, we took her. Needless to say, she loved it! She'd been on the website looking at the different options. Once there, she ended up picking a bunny. She named it Honey Bunny. The whole time we were there, Alec seemed a little uninterested. The only part he liked was the fluffing. When we got home, Brianna took the bunny out of the little house and Alec was just watching. Then he looked in the box and asked where his was. I felt horrible. All night Brianna kept brushing, primping, and fluffing her bunny and Alec was wanting to help and kept asking for one. Yes, I'm a horrible mother. So, today we went back and got a bear for Alec. Once there, of course, Brianna was looking around, "because Honey likes looking at clothes". With all the outfits and accesories, those people make a killing. I know I would've loved going there as a kid. Rodrigo was joking around saying they should change the name to "Build-A-Brat Workshop: walk in with your kid, walk out with a brat (and a bear)"
Uh, not a catchy slogan. Anyway, you can see pictures here.

Awww... cute bunny! We made one of those for my cousin as a flowergirl gift when we got married. The bear had a little flower-girl outfit and everything.

When the nieces showed us their new build-a-bear stuffed animals, I thought they were so cute. And a great idea. Apparently, I was so excited by it that Hubby took me to a store and we made one together. This was in Vegas at the time we got married, so I made a "Groom Bear" - complete with tuxedo shirt and black leather pants. And he's holding a heart that says "I love you". Too cute.

Fun! How old are your little ones? I'm thinking about getting one for my friend's little girl.

Jess and Michelle, the outfits are what make the whole bear. I love that they have wedding, flower girl and tuxedo things there. Right now they have a superman bear with a suit over the outfit. Really cute.

Thank you, Ammu. Welcome.

Nanette, my kids are 7 and 3. I think the 3 year old was a bit young for building it, but since he'd seen Brianna . . . .

Good to know. I was thinking about it for her upcoming 3rd birthday. Maybe I'll wait until she's 4.
