Last minute gift ideas from Build a Bear and a Giveaway (Open US/Canada, Puerto Rico, UK, Ireland)

My kids and I were only introduced to Build-A-Bear over the summer, and all of us were instantly hooked. Snuggly, furry friends, adorable apparel and accessories, and tons of fun? Yes, please!

Build-A-Bear does it “right.”  They have a great price range, frequent specials and top quality products.  They have products that when purchased, benefit certain organizations and charities.  They have fun, stylish clothes, the hottest character themed products, and great accessories that will allow your little- and not so little- ones to dive deep into dramatic play.

I think I’ve mentioned we’ll be going to Disney sooner than later, and we’re telling the kids on Christmas Day about the trip.  Part of that will be hinted in a lot of the kids’ gifts- Santa’s bringing each a new Build-A-Bear friend, but each new furry friend will be wearing something Disney-The girls’ bears will be in princess gear, and my son’s in either Darth Vader or Buzz Lightyear.  It’s so much fun to have a “themed” holiday!
