Build-A-Bear Workshop®

  By: Paula Beckham

When you step inside Build-A-Bear Workshop®, be prepared for squeals of delight and wide-eyed amazement. You’ll discover it is a captivating place where imaginations soar and best friends are created. Kids and adults alike will be inspired by all the colorful furry friends, clothes and accessories. It’s the most fun you’ll ever make!
The smiling associate who greets you at the door is the first of many helpful Bear Builders® who are on hand throughout your visit to ensure the bear-building experience is one you’ll always cherish.

Enjoy the fun-filled atmosphere as you take your first step and choose a furry friend from the dozens available. There are bears, of course, in nearly every color. You’ll also find bunnies, kittens, puppies, zoo animals and more, all vying for your attention. Out of the crowd, one special furry friend will touch your heart. Pick that one.

Next, you have the option of adding sound to your friend. Select from favorite movie or TV characters or record your own voice using the Build-A-Sound® technology for a very special touch. Scents and heartbeats can also be added.

At the stuffing station, get ready for a very important ceremony. Here, you’ll choose a heart, warm it with your hands, make a wish, give it a kiss and place it inside your new friend who is then filled with fluffy white stuffing. Take a test hug to make sure it feels just right before it’s stitched up. Once that’s done, give it a fluff and it’s on to shop for that special outfit.

Princess or fireman, ballerina or baseball player—whatever you imagine can come true with hundreds of wardrobe selections. There are even outfits for special occasions such as graduation or birthday. Accessories are available to complement every outfit. Dress your friend and you’re set to go.

All that’s left is to choose a name, make a personalized birth certificate, and register your friend in the Find-A-Bear® ID tracking system that helps lost furry friends find their way back home.

As you leave Build-A-Bear Workshop hand-in-paw, you’ll know you’ve found your best friend forever.

Looking to have a birthday party your child will never forget? Build-A-Party® at Build-A-Bear Workshop makes it as easy for mom as it is fun for the kids, and every attendee leaves with a new furry friend to remember the occasion. Call the store for details.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is also celebrating its own special birthday this year, with the first store having opened 20 years ago. Special festivities are planned throughout the year including “Parties on the 20th.” These in-store celebrations occur on the 20th of each month and feature fun activities and special offers for guests!

Build-A-Bear Workshop is located at Broadway at the Beach near the Visitors Center. They open daily at 10am. For more information, call 843-445-7675 or visit
