The holidays have come to Build-a-Bear Workshop!  Right now you can purchase fun holiday plush characters such as Rudolph, Clarice, and even The Grinch! There are so many different styles of cuddly friends to choose from.  How cute are these bears dressed up as elves?They even have a section of clothes and accessories for Chanukah, too!  I love the little plush dreidel that you can get to put in your new friend’s hand.  And the Star of David sweater is adorable, too!
First choose the plush that you would like.  It’s not always an easy decision with all the adorable choices.  Each plush has the price on the sign in front of it.   They usually start around $12.  My daughters and I went last weekend and had a great time making new fluffy friends.  One chose Clarice and the other chose an adorable puppy.  The staff was so friendly and helped us every step of the way.
Once you pick your plush new friend you can also choose to add a sound inside as well as a special scent.  My daughters made me a bear for Mother’s Day a few years ago and recorded a special message to me in their own voices.  I love being able to push the button inside my bear to hear my special message.  You can also choose from a list of special sounds, songs, and more.  This time my daughters each decided to include a special scent inside their selected new friends.  They both chose strawberry but there were several scents to choose from.
Next bring your new friend over to be filled.  Step on the foot pedal and watch your new friend get full.Don’t forget the special heart ceremony.  Watch our video to see ours.Next take your new friend over to the fluffing station for some brushing and fluffing. Choose what your new friend will wear and don’t forget the accessories!  They even have pretend iPads and iPods.  Have a Hello Kitty fan?  They’ve got you covered with lots of Hello Kitty clothes and accessories.There are LOTS of different styles of clothing to choose from!My daughter is in Brownies so she was especially excited to see all the Girl Scout clothes there were.  They even have patches and troop numbers you can put on the Girl Scout vests and sashes.  How cool is that?!?!Make sure to register your new friend so if he/she gets lost you will be contacted.  You’ll receive an adoption certificate, too!Build-a-Bear has lots of great plush animals that make great holiday gift ideas so make sure to add them to your holiday gift list!
