My kids adore Build A Bear. I like it too, but truthfully I wish I'd been the one to think of the idea. Then instead of writing this review, I'd be sitting on my veranda overlooking the ocean and sipping something with an umbrella in it. But I digress.
Build A Bear is the place you can take your kids and they literally build their own stuffed animals. They choose what they want, take it to the stuffing station, then bathe it and clothe it. Now clothe it is where the gimick comes in - there are clothes in every theme you can imagine for puchase. There are also shoes, hair pretties, hats, gloves, roller skates, backpacks, you name it and all available for purchase seperately.
All this can add up and one ballerina bunny with a crown and roller skates, and maybe a pair of pajamas to change into for night time, can easily set you back close to $50.00!
So bottom line is while we love the store and it's lots of fun, we only visit on special occassions.
