My son just turned 2 so we decided to take him to the mall and do Build a Bear. Everyone told me it was very expensive and not worth the money but I needed to judge for myself. We had a good time first you pick the bear you want to have stuffed. They also have character like big bird or winnie the pooh you can make also. Each one is priced different most range from 10 bucks to 20. Next you have the bear stuffed and the stuffing machine they ask you to pick out a heart which is free to give to your bear. You can pick a voice box to put into the bear they have ones like lullybys or that say i love you or happy birthday these cost 3 dollar you don't have to buy one. Next you take the bear to the little shower thing which is just air to fluff it up. Now this is where you can save money or spend alot picking out accessories like clothing and shoes. We picked a football outfit it came with a helmet also. Next you register the bear with all your info and name the bear, next you pay and they give you the cute carrying case and birth certificate. Cost us 35 dollars, so you can get away with making one for 10 dollars if you really wanted to.
