Build-A-Bear Review AND #Giveaway

I was provided with the Build-A-Bear workshop products and compensated for my time. However, all opinions are my very own.

My children have had their fair share of stuffed animals. That seems to be a standard gift when they are young. But, neither one of them, or myself for that matter, has ever been to a Build-A-Bear Workshop though there is one not too far away from us.

I jumped at the chance to review these “bears” because I thought it would be fun to get my kids opinions on them. BUT, when I got these in the mail I knew immediately that these babies were staying hidden until Valentine’s Day! These “bears” will make my kids so happy! They’ve never gotten Valentine’s gifts quite like these from their dad and I.

*side note – I refer to them all as “bears” when in fact 2 of them are bears, 1 is a lion, & 1 is an elephant.

Let me just say that I was extremely impressed right out of the box by these products. The bears are obviously top quality materials and going to last lots of “love” from my kids and any of their friends that play with them. And the accessories! They are just as quality as the bears themselves. The shoes on the two boy bears literally look like real “chucks” and they are heavy just like them as well! Accessories for anything will draw me in every time!

Don’t just take my word for it. Check out these awesome babies here:

    I would make and purchase a very special build-a-bear for a dear friend of my who is going through treatments for lung cancer. Something to cheer her up. : )

    If we win, I would use it for a special birthday celebration for my little guy. I have a feeling a lion would probably be coming home.

    I would save it for the birthday of my youngest daughter who loves her stuffed animals more than any other little one I know.
