Build-A-Bear Workshop has an adorable new lineup for Valentine’s Day.  They include Love Bears and Love Bugs:

They, of course, have a whole collection of coordinating outfits and accessories, or you can pick your own from their oodles of regular extras.

They sent Ali a gift card to come make a Valentine’s Friend, and of course she was more than happy to oblige! When I told her that we were going to Build-A-Bear, she immediately gave me an entire run-down of every time we’ve ever gone there, what “friend” she made, and all about the entire process of creating her friends.  Obviously, Build-A-Bear makes an impression on her!

She chose to make a Love Bear and got creative with her outfit, choosing her current favorite character, Tinkerbell’s dress:

(She also got her a pair of pink panties, but that’d be slightly improper to photograph – Build-A-Bears are MUCH more modest and proper than those Toilet-Paper-Covered-Backside-Charmin’-Bears, after all.)

Ali was thrilled with the entire process – from picking out the clothes, getting her stuffed, creating her new friend’s birth certificate, and getting her dressed in the “dressing room”.

And, in case you wondered, her new bear’s whole name is “Heart Bear Tinkerbell Sovies”.

(I’m not sure where the last name “Sovies” came from, but I totally expect Heart Bear to have a Russian Accent when she learns to talk.)

If you’d like to make your own Build-A-Bear, I have a $25 Gift Certificate for one lucky winner! Just comment on this post to be entered.

Disclosure: Ali received a $25 gift card to be able to review the product, but my opinions are always my own, as are Ali’s.  And believe me – she’s QUITE opinionated.

  1. My 4yo came home today (it was Take a Stuffed Friend to School Day) insisting we go to Build-a-Bear. Apparently he’s the only kid in preschool who hasn’t been yet. ;)

  2. Okay I know it doesn’t give me an extra entry but WordPress just told me “you are making comments too quickly. Slow down.” Thought that was funny and had to share it!

  3. Great giveaway! I remember taking my much-younger-than-me sister there when she was little and she loved it! She slept with her Build-A-Bear for years and gave it the most original name a little girl ever gives to her bear-Princess.

    She later got another one and named it Strawberry.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. …and OF COURSE I shared with my friends on Facebook!! I hope they take me with them if they win, though! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  5. My daughter still loves B-A-B and she is old (well, 15 is old in kid years and B-A-B years)!

    It would be great to have a prize for her (and a reason to go to the mall).
