I have been a fan of for years! As a parent it is an even more unforgettable experience when I get to take my children into our Build-A-Bear Workshop and seeing them experience the magic of creating their very own Build-A-Bear. When I had my daughter, my mother came in town and we took my son out to get something special. We went through the steps and he made his special Build-A-Bear. It was such an extraordinary experience to see him go through all the steps to get his bear just right.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is such an enchanted and exciting place. Have you seen all of the exciting things going on at Build-A-Bear Workshop this holiday season? Build-A-Bear is brightening up the season with classics from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. Build-A-Bear even has its’ own version of the classic, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” This new twist on a classic tale sells for $3.99 and is titled, “Twas the Fun Before Christmas.”

We were excited to review who is one of the Disney Princess Bears. My daughter loves everything girly and is crazy about stuffed animals so this gorgeous bear is the perfect fit for my little princess! I love the attention to detail in the crown, wig and dress. The crowning jewel of this adorable bear is her perfect pair of high heels!  My daughter’s face lit up when she saw this fabulous bear. She liked it better once we took the wig off but I am sure that when she gets older she will have fun with it. I love that Build-A-Bear has so many different outfits available that give you the ability to change up your bear with a simple change of clothes. It makes it easy to have your bear change with your child’s interests.
