Build-A-Bear Workshop is a place that will bring out the kid in everyone! My children love stuffed animals and what they love more is the animals at Build-A-Bear Workshop have loads of personality. My youngest son was turning 6 and Build-A-Bear Workshop allowed us to have a party at one of their locations close to where we live. When I told my youngest, he was so excited and could not wait to go.
Once we walked into Build-A-Bear Workshop, we were greeted instantly. Since we were having a party, they walked us through each station, which the kids and I really enjoyed as it made the experience special. As you can see across the wall is lots of choices available and in the bins below.
Once you pick your furry friend, you make your way over to the sound station where you can choose a sound that can be put into your animal. There is many cute sounds and they even have One Direction music for the One Direction fans!
We did not get any sounds so the next stop was to the stuffing station. This is where you will be able to pick a heart, stuff your furry friend, and make him come to life. First, we did a heart ceremony and it works a little different from the traditional heart ceremony. I do not want to give all of it away as it may ruin the experience for anyone that wants to have a party at Build-A-Bear.
What I love about Build-A-Bear is the children are part of the whole experience of making their furry friend. Ryan loved helping pump the stuffing into his bear.
Ryan then gave his bear a good hug to see if he was just right.(and it was). Each of the children had their turn as well.
Ryan is enjoying washing his bear to get him ready for his outfit. Build-A-Bear Workshop makes it so much fun for your child and even adults have fun too.
Build-A-Bear Workshop has so many cute outfits to choose that it was hard to decide what outfit to choose. Each child must have tried on 4-5 outfits each on their furry friends before they made a decision.
Build-A-Bear has recently launched their Small Fry line of animals that come in a box that look like a french fry box. How cute is that?? My older son saw them and thought they were adorable so he decided to get one too. . In addition, they have clothes for the Small Frys so you can dress them however you would like.
When you are all done dressing your friends Build-A-Bear gives you this special birthday bear that all your party friends can sign and you can take home.
Now you need to give your friends a name. You have a choice you can have the employees make your certificate for you at the front of the store or you can use the computer and create one yourself. We usually do it ourselves however; this time we let our party associate make it for us this time. The kids told them the names they chose and the certificate was ready for us when we were ready to leave
At the end of the party, we took some pictures of the kids and their furry friends. The picture is cropped to take some out of the photo. Everyone had such a fun time that we cannot wait to go back again to bring some more furry friends home. At Build-A-Bear, they make the experience special and memorable for all. The Build-A-Bear Workshop leader enjoyed every minute with the children and did not rush us through the party.
If you want to have a party at Build-A-Bear Workshop give them a call and book your party! The experience is one your child will cherish and remember forever. You can also book your party online!
Hope you have a Bearytastic time like we did!!
