Build-A-Bear Review and $25.00 Gift Card Giveaway

I love Build-A-Bear and so do my kids, where else can they go, pick out an animal, stuff and fluff it, give it feelings and a heart, dress it and take it home to be their new best friend.  I don’t live close enough to a Build-A-Bear location to be able to go and do this often so I have to order it off the website if I want one when we are not traveling.  I wanted one for Holden for his birthday and was lucky enough to be able to work with the great people at Build-A-Bear Workshop to get him one.  I was given the option of a gift card that I could go into a store and use or I could just order one from the site.  Well I knew we would be traveling close to a Build-A-Bear Workshop but was not sure that I would be able to get into one so I opted to choose one from the site.

I was not particular on what bear was sent to me but did give two options that I really liked.  What I was particular on was that I wanted it to be the happy birthday bear complete with cupcake, party hat and present.  The great folks at Build-A-Bear were more then happy to comply and sent Holden the most adorable bear that he absolutely loves and hauls around with him all over the house while he is crawling.  What makes it even better is that the bear plays the Happy Birthday song from Build-A-Bear.

The bear that Holden received was the 17 in. Happy Hugs Teddy dressed in Madras Plaid Outfit with the Made Fur You Birthday Gift Set consisting of the bear sized party hat, an adorable plush cupcake, a birthday card and a plus birthday present which also doubles as a gift card holder.  As I already said before as well it plays the Build-A-Bear Happy Birthday song which you can go and sample right on the website.

I absolutely love the bear we received and I plan on taking the kids to build their own bears as soon as possible.  Want to take your kids to build a bear?  Well I have great news keep reading to find out what it is.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is going to give one lucky Jabbering Jessi reader a $25.00 gift Card.

Go to Build-A-Bear and tell me which bear you think you or your little one would love to have.

    I know that I was supposed to say a bear, but my son loves foxes, and their 14 inch fennec fox is really cute. He would be so happy with it.

    My great niece is 11 and has been in the hospital for 3 weeks now. They just transferred to another one that is better in neurology. I would love to win this certificate for her to make the Blossom
    Bunny when she is well enough to go home!
    Many thanks, Cindi
