Give a Gift to RememBEAR from Build-A-Bear Workshop


Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.


Mommy is a Build-A-Bear fanatic. No joke! Mommy have been collecting Build-A-Bears for over eight years. Mommy lived in NYC where the store is located on 5th Ave and according to mommy, my big sister and brothers, mommy went almost every week. They had parties there and even went to the special occasions. They got to meet Mets baseball players and even got to meet the Build-A-Bear characters. Mommy was able to find some photos of my big sister and brothers when they were younger. See how cute they looked at Build-A-Bear Workshop? I look so much cuter though.


When offered the chance to collaborate with Build-A-Bear Workshop there was no way mommy was going to say no. Mommy jumped at the chance. My very first bear after all was from Build-A-Bear Workshop and she sleeps on my bed with me. I even went a couple of months ago to get her a brand new outfit and told my story.

Now Build-A-Bear Workshop is known for their quality teddy bears and each bear is special. Just the experience of choosing your very own bear, stuffing it and bringing your bear to life with his or her very own birth certificate is an experience that you will cherish forever. You can even add a sound box to your bear making it even more unique. My Velvet Teddy has a signature fragrance but no sound but she does smell delicious! You can keep buying outfits for your bears so they will never have to wear the same thing all the time.

With the Christmas holidays approaching Build-A-Bear Workshop this year has decided to bring back the Christmas Classics. You can make your very own Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer ($25), his special friend Clarice ($25), Frosty the Snowman ($23),  Wishes Santa ($20) and Merry Mouse ($18). Clicking on the photo below will transport you to Build-A-Bear Workshop where you can buy your very own Christmas Classic.

When asked which of the classics we would love to have mommy immediately said Wishes Santa. We already had Rudolph, Clarice and Frosty from previous years but we did not have Santa. Wishes Santa is perfect to put under the Christmas tree. He will be there when the real Santa comes and leaves our gifts on Christmas day.


Santa is 17 inches tall and came fully dressed in his signature outfit looking all jolly with his red rosy cheeks. His hat is attached to his head so does not come off. He even had on his wire frame glasses, black rubber boots and his sack which he holds our gifts in on his arm. All these extra accessories can be purchased making Santa even more special.


Now the fun doesn't stop once you bring your bear home. No you can connect with your bear pal on Bearville. The online world where all your bears come to life. Your bear can walk around with you and you get your very own condo which you can decorate. The best thing about all of this is that it is all FREE! It is pawsitively fun!

I'm in love with my Santa but mommy says that Santa doesn't come out to be played with until it's closer to Christmas. I have to disagree with her. Build-A-Bear Workshop gets my Two Tiny Thumbs Up!

  1. We have nothing like Build a Bear here in my little town. I have no idea where the closest would be. I am going to check their site and see where the closest one to me would be. The Wishes Santa is the perfect addition to your collection of Holiday Friends.

  2. We go to Build A Bear at Roosevelt Field on Long Island and love it. Seriously my girls can never get enough of this store and we recently got the pug dogs and the roller skates with matching leashes for the girls to walk them. Just too cute and seriously awesome review and thank you for the giveaway, too :)

  5. Oh I love build-a-bear. I think I'm a lot like your mommy.Whenever we pass I'm like a little kid who wants to go in. Well if we were lucky enough to Win this, it would be for my princess and it'd be completely up to her which she would want. So I really don't know, sense she is so indecisive.

  11. I passed by a build a bear store a couple of weeks ago and was so tempted to walk in there but my Mom was too busy looking for whatever she had been looking for. Granted there is no one I can give one to--except maybe me--oh maybe I will sneak back there when she is not around!

  41. We took my daughter (who is now a teenager) many times while she was growing up! She had probably 10 bears throughout her younger years. She still has two that she can't part with. If I won, I'd take my son. He's never been and he's 3 so he's at the perfect age to enjoy it. I'd like him choose which one he wanted!!!!
