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!
Hayley was sent the My Little Pony Build-A-Bear which has permanent residence now on her bed. Hayley received the My Little Pony Rainbow Dash, which is her favorite of the My Little Ponies! This Build-A-Bear My Little Pony is 16 inches, so is a great size for your kids. It is light blue with blue wings, along with a rainbow colored mane and tail. The colors of this Build-A-Bear my little pony is vivid and beautiful. It will be a regular companion to your kids. You can also accessorize the My Little Pony with clothing and accessories, to go along with the theme.
This holiday season, be sure to check out Build-A-Bear for all your shopping needs and beyond. They have something for everyone at Build-A-Bear!
