Build-A-Bear Workshop Valentine’s Giveaway!

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.

You can earn up to four extra entries by:

  • Following Build-A-Bear Workshops on Facebook OR Twitter
  • Tweet, blog, OR Facebook about this giveaway
  • Subscribe to OR Follow my blog
  • Follow me on Twitter OR Facebook

(be sure to leave separate comments for your extra entries.)

Best of luck! This giveaway is open until Monday, February 7th. The winner will be randomly selected and posted on my giveaway winners page on Tuesday, February 8th.

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.

  64. 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.
