Build- A- Bear My Little Pony Review and a $25 Build a Bear Gift Card Giveaway! #MHCgiftguide

Whenever we are in the mall, Build-A-Bear is usually the first stop we make. The kids absolutely love making their Build-A-Bear, so much so, that we are considering having Hayley’s birthday there next year. Build-A-Bear company motto is to make teddy bears come to life right before your kids very own eyes. When they have their own individual teddy bear, thoughts of love, friendship, and family will come to mind.


While the have a large assortment of  traditional stuffed animals such as zoo animals, bears, dogs, etc, 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!DSC09042

    I have not been to a build a bear since I was a kid and my daughter has never been. I know she would love it. She would want to make a very girly looking animal.

  2. Beth Clark says

    It has been awhile since I have been to Build a Bear. I purchased 2 of the Teddy Bears and got two outfits to go with them for a couple of children in my class. Love Build a Bear

  3. Jenna Wood says

    I’ve been TO Build A Bear, but I haven’t made a ‘bear,’ despite eying that Rainbow Dash from the window all season!

  4. Linda Szymoniak says

    We have a Build-a-Bear not far from us and my daughters have been there. My oldest likes the My Little Pony plushes, my middle daughter loves the Panda, and my youngest got her monkey there. For me, I love the tri-colored hound.

  5. says

    We actually just ordered Rainbow-dash, because in this house it is our favorite MLP. I think that we would like a friend for Rainbow dash and that is why we are participating here. Thank you so much for the opportunity, and happy holidays!

  6. Amanda S. says

    I think Build a Bear is so cute. I wish they would have had it when I was young, it’s such a great idea. In my house the panda at Build a bear is the favorite!

  7. Shemp DeYoung (@shempgames) says

    My daughter went to a birthday there earlier this year. Our new favorites are the Star Wars ones.

  10. Emi says

    We visited build a bear and made some regular bears dressed in fancy clothes – one a construction worker bear and another an army bear and they are both sitting in the bottom of the toy box as my daughters are into princesses and baby dolls. A small backpack from one of the bears is my daughter’s favorite purse for when she goes shopping. Mommy’s favorite is the Hello Kitty one, but at the time that we were at the store, they were not interested in it

  11. stephanie says

    Yes! We love going there. My kids have a lot of different characters. I think their favorite ones are their kitty cats!

  12. Cynthia Cover says

    We visit Build A Bear often, probably have about 25 animals between the boys, I am surprised they have room to sleep on their beds.

  13. Robyn says

    We have been to build a bear before but it’s been a couple of years! I am sure my son would choose one of the dogs, since he is obsessed with them!


    I have been there. They are all so cute! I don’t have one but my nieces and nephews have them and love Build-A-Bear!

  15. Ashley C says

    I’ve been to build a bear, but not with my kids! I think my son would love Pengy the Penguin


  16. Anastasia says

    We’ve never gone to a Build a Bear, but my daughter LOVES all the My little Pony stuffed animals there are to choose from :)

  17. Stephanie Gossett says

    I LOVE build a bear. My daughter wants the Koala! All of their items are very high quality, and they make it such a sweet experience! My little girls loves choosing a heart for her new friend!

    Thank you for the chance!

    I have visited build a bear, but I have never made one! My daughter just turned 2, and I would love to take her in the future so this giveaway is great!

  19. melikegarfield says

    We’ve gone to BAB to buy our niece and nephew bears over the years. I’ve been wanting to do it for our kids as well. I still love the traditional teddy bears, but would let the kids pick whatever struck their fancy.

  20. Lentil says

    We’ve never been to Build a Bear, but I think I’m going to take my daughter for her birthday this year. She’d love a my little pony!

  21. Jenny says

    We go there often with both my son and daughter. My daughter’s favorite is the girl scout bear she made, while my son just likes everything there!

  22. Allison J. says

    We finally went in November for my little one’s birthday and as soon as she saw that she could make her own Rudolph she was beyond excited!

  23. Mike S. says

    I took my son a few years ago when he was 2.5yo or so. He loved it and still loves his bear. I don’t think he really remembers the experience though, so it might be time to go again and build a slightly more “grown up” bear. Thanks!

  24. CToupin says

    We have never been there yet, but my son is fascinated by the store and loves the big bear with the moving head outside the store.

  25. Gennie Lancaster says

    We have been to Build-A-Bear a couple times. My daughter loves picking out an outfit after she builds a bear.

  26. Nicole Newby says

    There is a build a bear workshop in my local mall, but I have not been into it. My little sister was obsessed as a child. My son is about 16 months old, I am sure he will love it there!

  27. says

    My daughter’s teddy bear is from Build-A-Bear. I’m not sure of the official name but it is light blue and has peace signs on it. My daughter has named it Princess Fluffy. She keeps bugging me that her bear needs a sister, so I’d love to win this GC! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  28. Birdiebee says

    I have been to a Build-A-Bear store about 5 years ago with a friend who had her granddaughter’s birthday party there. So many things have changed so I am not sure what my favorite would be. I would love to win a gift card for my granddaughter to go and visit the store.

  29. heather baker says

    She loves the My Little Pony, I couldn’t get her to decide which one out of them, she said all of them….she is 3 :).

    My son has one Build a Bear that he got for Valentine’s Day a couple years back. It’s a Valentines bee dressed in a nice Valentines outfit. He constantly asks for another one.

    I have been to Build A Bear many many times, she has so many not sure what favorite is but I think it might be Marine Bear like her brother

  33. Matthew Pohlman says

    My daughter loved Build a Bear when she was little…she had a cat that kept saying “I love you” REALLY loud all night (every time she’d roll over on it). We had to stop by the store every time we were near the mall to buy another outfit or accessory. Now I have a niece to take (but I don’t have to listen to the voice box going off all night).
