Right before Christmas, I take my two neices to Build a Bear for a treat and I honestly think I have more fun than they do. I think this place is so neat. You get to pick out what type of animal you want. You can also decide if you want to give it sounds and heart. You take it to the stuff machine and you get to decide on how much stuffing you want to put in it. I think it is so cute you get to buy clothing and accessories for it including KU, KSU, Royals, and the Chiefs items. You also get to name it and get a birth certificate. My favorite so far is a teddy bear that looks like an old fashion bear and when you push is arm, he laughs. My dog is not thrilled when it laughs. Going to this place makes you young again and will put a smile on your face.
