Build-A-Bear Review & Giveaway (US & Can)

I’ve always been a fan of Build-A-Bear, even before I had children! It’s a great place to take my nieces, and now my sons as well, to let them create their own furry little friend. My oldest son has a nice collection of animals and accessories from Build-A-Bear, and I’m sure my little guy will follow suit when he’s old enough. And now I’ve discovered two fun new products from Build-A-Bear that give me a whole new way to treat my sons and nieces to the Build-A-Bear experience – Fun Packs and Trading Cards.

The Build-A-Bear Workshop Fun Packs are a cute way to have a little Build-A-Bear experience at home. Each pack comes with a furry little friend, trading cards, a stuffed heart and a shirt for the pet complete with customizers. Once your child places the heart into his little stuffed friend, you put the shirt on to keep it in place. It’s a neat little piece of the BAB experience that Matthew recognized from his time at the stores. The customizers let your little one create a unique animal friend.

Build-A-Bear Workshop trading cards are included in each Fun Pack, as well as sold separately. They are a fun collectible for young kids. Both the Fun Packs and the trading cards would make great stocking stuffers next holiday season, party favors, or even as cute little gift add-ons for birthdays, holidays, etc.

The Fun Packs have a suggested retail price of $5.99 and can be found at stores like Target, Walmart and Toys R Us. The trading cards have a suggested retail price of $1.99 and can be found at all Build-A-Bear store locations.

You can learn more about Build-A-Bear on their website, on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

    I was just looking around the Build-A-Bear site and saw a Black Lab stuffed animal. I think that one’s my new favorite because it looks like my puppy.

    I find all their products great though. They are so cute, and children (and adults alike) love them. This is a great giveaway.

    Hi! :) Doll-wise, I love the Tabby cat, even though it’s not the same color as mine was, but still, the same idea… outfit wise, Darth Vader thank you! :)
