Build-A-Bear Review and $25 Build-A-Bear Giveaway!

I could never go into the mall without stopping at Build-A-Bear! My kids are completely addicted to Build-A-Bear! They are constantly updating their product line to appeal to kids all over the country! Their mission is to bring teddy bears to life and they do so through making products that kids will love!

429208_10150724168515166_912557776_aWhile they have the traditional stuffed animals such as bears, dogs, cats, bunny, and zoo animals, they also feature many limited edition items to keep up with your child’s favorite shows and movies. In their new collection, they have My Little Pony, Smurfette, Hackus, Papa Smurf, Nickelodeon Spongebob Squarepants, Patrick, and Monster U!

Since Hayley just saw Disney’s Monster U, she was so excited to receive a Build-A-Bear Monster U Mike for review. Seriously, the minute she took it out of the package, she was beaming with delight! As she likes to say, “Mommy..It looks exactly like the Mike in the movies.” Even Hayley’s Daddy, was mighty impressed with Mike from Build-A-Bear. She loved the detailing on Mike and how life-like he was. They represented Mike just like the movies- exactly the same features! This is amazing to a 4 year old who is obsessed with Monster U!DSC02377

Now, Hayley wants to go back and purchase Spongebob Squarepants which is a Nickelodeon favorite of both kids. Since her birthday is coming up, we will definitely be buying this Build-A-Bear!

    I used to have 15 Build a Bears. I was obsessed! Now at 20, I’ve narrowed it down to about 10 of them. The ones I kept have meant a lot to me. One of them is a Spider-Man dog, one is a New England Patriots Bear, one is a Candy Corn covered bear with a little halloween outfit and birthday cupcake (my big sister made it for me for my birthday one year, it’s too cute!) I LOVE Build-a-Bears. Best company ever!

  2. Amy Green says

    Her favorite is Sandy Cheeks, the girl squirrel from the Nickelodeon animated TV series, “SpongeBob SquarePants”.

  3. Catarina says

    I’ve never taken my boys, but with the new Smurfs movie coming out my boys would like the Hackus smurf.

  4. Samantha Daleo says

    My daughter has a white cat from Build a Bear that she calls Ms Kitty. She’s about the prettiest one I have seen.

    I’m ashamed to say we’ve never been to Build-a-Bear, but I imagine my daughter would instantly want a My Little Pony one.

  7. Anastasia says

    So many cute ones to choose from! I really love the Magical Friendship MY LITTLE PONY PRINCESS TWILIGHT SPARKLE® :)

  8. Dwayne Berry says

    My daughter’s favorite Build-A-Bear is her Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony), but she’s gotten the latest catalog and is really hinting hard that she wants that Twilight Sparkle.

  9. Dorothy Teel says

    Wow they have added a bunch at Build A Bear – I like this one as we have a thing for Forgs here.. 18 in. Jazzy Frog

  11. renee syed says

    I can’t believe we’ve never done build a bear. I think my youngest would love the jazzy frog and my middle would love the unicorns.

  12. Emi says

    Regal My Little Pony Rainbow Dash. Wow! Did not know they had that. I only bought bears for my kids the last time we went.

    Really love the german shepard. My family raised those dogs as a child and it brings back good memories!

    My daughter would flip for MY LITTLE PONY PRINCESS TWILIGHT SPARKLE® and I don’t actually know who Cody Simpson is, but I think the Cody Simpson Koala is really cute

    I love the red panda! My favorite build a bear was once I made in high school of a dinosaur wearing a sweater vest. I still love him :)
