Build A Bear is celebrating 100 million Friends!

My children have spent countless hours playing with Build-A-Bears. I feel like we visited the shop once a week. The promotions and fun kept us coming back week after week. The price is right, the fun factor is there, and it was a day out of the house.  The girls learned to make decisions; choosing which bear, what outfit, colors, accessories and even naming the bear all were part of their growing experience.



Not only did my kids play with the bears for many hours, the quality of the Build-A-Bear friends is still going strong. Their cousins are now enjoying the furry friends and all their adorable outfits.

Build-A-Bear has certainly grown!  2012 marks their 15th birthday.  2012 also marks another milestone for them; the celebration of selling their 100 millionth furry friend! Build-A-Bear opened in 1997 in St. Louis Galleria. I remember when our mall opened a Build-A-Bear store, and it is still there years later.




To find a location and view all the cute furry friends visit them!   Build-A-Bears are wonderful to make and share. Your children can make their own friend in the workshop, make a friend for another friend. Bears make lovable gifts, even adults can make a friend to give to someone. From birthday gifts to get well gifts there are many cute Bears and animals to choose from for any occasion.
