I did not know how amazing Build A Bear was until we visited there this week with the children.
They have serious game and are a real contender Christmas gift wise, especially if you are still looking for a gift for the child who has ‘everything’….We’ve all been there!
Build a Bear invited us down to their Lakeside store to get an insight in to how the bears are made (very lovingly) and take a bear home with us, one each for both girls.
Now I looked on the website before I got there and as we have our very own little Miss Kaia Rae we just knew we had to get the Rae from Star Wars inspired bear. For Leia though I wasn’t so sure, I selected a cute pink one but at that point didn’t know what to dress the bear in.
We stuffed our picked bears completing the process with a beating heart, sound, an actual heart & of course a cuddle to seal the deal! So sweet!
The selection of clothes at the ‘heritage store’ over at Lakeside was huge, an outfit for any intrest, from pets, to yoga mats and princesses! Its there we found a Princess Leia outfit for our own Miss Leia! Perfect!
With both teddies in and out of the dressing room it was time to name our bears complete with a birth certificate and make a pledge to look after them for life.
I find it amazing that the children really can take these bear through all stages, revisiting where needed to get accessories for the bears over the years. Such a fun idea and really a fantastic day out.
A huge thanks once again to Build a bear for allowing us to visit & to Liam in the store for really bringing the bears to life! We will remember our trip for a long time to come!
Have you got a build a bear teddy? If so, which one? I’d love to know
