Love the concept, nice treat for the kids on a special occasion
I love how they keep up with the fashion world of people to have the bears fashions
I love all my bears, bunnies and most of all my dog I gave as a gift to myself. My first one was a wedding gift from my husband. She is very dear to me.
Build-A-Bear is phenomenal, great website, great store. Their bears are reasonably priced. Once I looked at how much flowers with delivery would cost I opted to instead send a BAB bear to cheer a friend and for less money they'll have an adorably outfitted bear to cheer them up. They also contribute funds to help children with cancer. I will purchase again from them.
Easiest birthday gift I have ever purchased!
Great stuff!! Affordable and adorable
THEY ARE SO ADORABLE, AND THEY MAKE WONDERFUL GIFTS. I LOVE YOUR STORES
Build a bear is a fun place that gives the opportunity to make and personalize your own stuffed animal which makes the bear even more special
I love your web site its fun and it has great prices and it says what your trying to say to the person
Was a great place to make a gift for my girl friend

I purchased this gift card for my niece. She has been to a Build-A-Bear Workshop store and loved it. She wants to go back.
Fun and exciting idea...loved the last one i bought...great gifts ideas and great for couples.
These bears make great gifts.
I think the animals are so cute. My friends and I have an afternoon out with lunch and go to Build-A-Bear Workshop & take home a new friend. The animals make an excellent gift for any age or gender.
Excellent, fabulous, irresistible!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT A PERFECT GIFT FOR ANYONE! SUCH A CLEAVER IDEA! THANK YOU:)
It is always a fun place to shop for unique gifts for special people.
I love the ability to personalize the "birth certificate" and / or story.
I love shopping at build-a-bear, I find they have a good selection, quality and prices for gifts that will bring a smile to anyone face. Not to mention I enjoy collecting them for myself!
I also gave one of my co-workers a bear with a sweater and denim shorts and Sketcher sneakers. She loved it! Your products are of very high quality?
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great gift idea and they make it easy even if there is no store near them, by making a bear on-line. Thanks You.
Awesome items for gifts.
By doing this I feel like a child again. Also all the bears I have made, weather in the store or on-line have made excellent gifts!!
I have ordered from buildabear.com before and the present was perfect, my Grandmom loved her Build-A-Gram and it reminded her that I love her, so when I couldn't think of a good present for my boyfriend, I went to buildabear.com and found a perfect present for him.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is one of my favorite places to buy gifts. Not only is it unique, but everyone loves to receive stuffed animals..even if they are an adult. The staff is always helpful and the stores are a lot of fun. The website is great and easy, and I know I will come back and buy a new gift real soon!
This was a great convenience for buying my niece a gift out of state! Thank you!
I have purchased Build-A-Bear Workshop bears for years for occasions of all sorts, everyone loves them and they are a great gift.
My boyfriend recently injured himself and Build-A-Bear Workshop had a great selection of gifts for this situation.
Great way to send gifts! Thanks!
Our Build-A-Bear Workshop experience has been part of our family traditions. I take my nieces and nephews for their birthday weekend and travel to a location where they will have the opportunity to create their own special friend. It's a great bonding weekend for us with a lasting memory of our time together!
Cutest thing, easy ordering, and there's something for everyone one

I'm in the United States Air Force and am currently serving my country in Korea away from my family. My daughter is getting her tonsils removed and I won't be there to comfort her. Your product is a cute and clever way to let my baby girl know her mommy is thinking of her. Thank you for having such cute affordable product.
I am writing to let you know what a wonderful time we had at my daughter's Build-A-Bear Workshop party; the whole experience exceeded my expectations. It was my daughter, Abi's, fourth birthday and it was made apparent that this was her special day, while also not excluding the other guests. This was a great experience and I would recommend it to my friends. Sincerely, Kara, New Jersey
My 5 year old daughter had her party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop Store in Jacksonville FL. It was the best party she has ever had!! All the kids had a blast and the staff was excellent! We have already purchased extra clothes for Prissy and ordered her a tote bag. Thanks for brining this wonderful store to Jacksonville! Sincerely, Cordie, Florida
I just had a party for my 4 year old daughter, Ashley, along with my niece, Abby on this past Thursday at your Galleria store in Houston. I cannot thank your staff enough, especially Tracy (the store manager), for one of the MOST fun and best controlled birthday parties! Tracy was an absolute dream to work with -- both before and during the actual party, and I was extremely impressed with the rest of your staff by how well they handled 40+ young children (and their moms!). You should take pride in how well your parties are organized and executed -- from working with the website and the toll free number, to dealing directly with the store and even to making thank you cards...I would give another Build-A-Bear Workshop party in a second! And better yet, I would highly recommend it to anyone who asks! Please let Tracy and the rest of the Galleria staff know how beary much Ashley and her parents, family and friends LOVED her 4th birthday party -- and how much her Mommy appreciated Thank you, Jill, Texas
I am sending this message to let you know how pleased I was with your party planning process, your store and products, and your staff. Planning my daughter's party was a breeze with the information found at your web site and your customer service staff at the 1800 number. I had browsed the store before, but this was the first time I actually went through the process of making a bear. Cecilia at your Aventura, FL location was our party hostess. She was so pleasant and so much fun for the group of seven 8 - 9 year old girls who attended the party. Kudos to Cecilia and to Build-A-Bear Workshop for a job well done! My husband and I were very impressed with all you have to offer. Keep up the good work and may your business continue to blossom during these hard times! We look forward to seeing your new location in Coral Square Mall, Coral Springs, FL (this one will be closer to our home and it will be visited quite frequently by us). Thanks again, Sieglinde, Florida
I would like to let you know that we had a party at your Ridgemar location in Fort Worth. Your Manager did a great job with our Girl Scout Troop. We showed up Saturday morning and were greeted with our own party person. I can't remember the manager's name or associate that helped us, but they were awesome!! Our party person, led our Troop through the store and had the girl's recite the Girl Scout Promise. This was the best time the girl's have ever had. For some of my girl's, it was their first time in a Build-A-Bear Workshop store. I was very proud of the way the manager and employee's treated our Troop. We even sold a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies to your employees. So, thank you for everything your employees do to make sure that everyone has a good experience at their store. Sincerely, Vicky Troop Leader #3901 Texas
My name is Christine and I took my 1st grade Brownie Troop to your Build-A-Bear Workshop in Orland Park Mall today. I just had to tell you how thrilled the girls were. Jeff and the staff were great! They made it such a fun experience that the girls have already said that they can't wait to go back. I loved the way they had the girls play hot potato to get there turn to stuff the bear. Thank you very much for making our outing so much FUN. We had a BEARY good time. Sincerely, Christine Brownie Troop 187 Illinois
Thank you very much for all the work you and Ena did for the bat-mitzvah party of Lara. we all had an amazing time, and my daughters would like to thank you. Lara (bat mitzvah girl) and Shani (older sister): We love our bears, and every time we feel bad we give them hugs and remember the great time we all had. All throughout the party we heard our friends exclaiming about the great fun time they were having. The bears for charity was also a great part, and we all had such a great time. It was so well organized, the staff helped the kids become very involved with making their bears, and it was a very fun and friendly environment in the store. Thank you very much for the great party. Sincerely, Lara and Shani
I was at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at the Lakeside Shopping Center in Metairie, Louisiana. I've been there quite a few times but have never seen what I saw today. Today was one of the customers' birthday. The customer was a little girl. The bear associate who was checking out the customer stopped everything and announced the little girl's birthday. The store was very crowded at the time, but everyone stopped what they were doing and participated in the Build-a-Bear Workshop birthday song. I'm glad that I was there at the time. The Build-a-Bear Workshop seems to be one of the very few places that everyone gets along and looks happy. I'm talking about the customers and the associates. I can't wait to go there again. Keep up the good work. Donna, Louisiana
Hi! I just came from my son's birthday party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Hamilton Place Mall in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I just had to let you know how much fun everyone had. It was the best party ever! We had 10 3 yr. and 4 yr. old and it was 10:00 am. Your staff was so prepared and so professional. They were great with the kids. Laura was so kid friendly. I used to teach and I know what a special person it takes to be able to connect to children and also keep them in line. I am sure all of my friends will be back. They had never made a bear before. I had done it a few years ago with my older son. He never had a party there. I will recommend this for a party to everyone! Thanks for a great experience- Lisa, Georgia
Hi, I would just like to comment on the wonderful service my daughter and I experienced at her Build-A-Bear Workshop birthday party. We went to the Crossgates Mall location and Cara was our party rep. She was extremely enthusiastic and eager to help us when we came in. She helped adhere to the amount I was allowing the girls in the party to spend. She was extremely friendly throughout the whole party. Checkout was easy and I would definitely have my daughter?s party there again as well as visit that location for general shopping. Thank you. Lisa H. Selkirk, NY
We just celebrated our daughter's 6th birthday with a party at the Build-a-Bear Workshop in Willow Grove, PA and we had such a wonderful experience. We had 14 children attend the party ranging in ages 2-11 years old. Kelly, our party leader made the party so much fun for everyone involved, especially Melissa our 6 year old. Kelly handled the party with such enthusiasm and professionalism that made everyone enjoy themselves immensely. We just wanted to e-mail you to let you know about Kelly and what a wonderful job she did with such a challenging task of a 6 year old's birthday party. We were very lucky to have had her run the show for us. Please let her know that we are thankful for her and we would highly recommend the Willow Grove Build-a-Bear Workshop store for any size birthday party and we would recommend Kelly to be the leader. Dave and Susan B. Willow Grove, PA
We had my daughter's 4th birthday party at Concord Mills, Concord, NC. I wanted to write and commend your representatives for a job very well done. The 7 little girls were thoroughly entertained and for once, I feel that I got more than I paid for with the party that was put together. Robin was our party hostess and she was wonderful. It is difficult to keep the attention of 7 4-year old girls, but she did an excellent job. Your staff was very helpful in allowing us to temporarily store our cake and presents in a secure location. All of the mothers that were present just couldn't believe how well the party was handled. In today's world where customer service isn't always highest on the list, I wanted you to know that Robin and everyone else at the Concord Mills Mall Build-A-Bear Workshop store were fantastic. Please make sure that Robin receives proper recognition for a job well done! Shannon C. Cornelius, NC
We had a birthday party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at the Ontario Mills, in Ontario, California, on September 21st. The kids had a great time. Even though the store was crowded, I felt the party got a lot of attention from your employees. Our hostess Trina (I think that was her name) did a great job. I want to give her credit for making our birthday girl and her friends feel special. Carol U. Highland, CA
Our daughter had her sixth birthday party yesterday at the Rockaway Mall Build-a-Bear Workshop. It was the first build a bear party in the class and all 13 little girls had a wonderful time. The ease of scheduling and cooperation by the staff was great and led to a stress free party experience for the parents and a great time for the kids. The moms had an hour or so to shop alone and the kids just had fun. Thanks so much. Our party hostess Kayla R. was very good with the children Fred and Holly H. Long Valley, NJ
Our daughter's 3rd birthday party was at your Des Peres, MO store on Saturday, 9/27. It was attended by eight of her friends. We want to commend Sharon for the GREAT job she did. She was really able to connect with the kids. Her warmth, animated storytelling, and involvement with each child (especially our daughter) kept everyone's attention for well over an hour. As you know, this is difficult to do with 3 to 5 year olds. Everyone had a wonderful time, and our daughter felt very special. We want you to know what a valuable employee you have in Sharon B.. You should be very proud of her. Steve and Sally V. Chesterfield, MO
I'd like to thank you for the wonderful party my daughter had last Saturday, 9/20/03. We had 11 girls at the West County Mall location at 6:30. Alli did an exceptional job! Our girls had a WONDERFUL time and I was pleased beyond expectation. Alli made the experience both fun and exciting for all of them. Please pass on our appreciation to her for a job well done. We have been buying Build A Bear Workshop animals at Galleria Mall since you first opened. I think our count is up to about 14 in our home alone including countless outfits. That includes Disney costumes from Anaheim, too. We've not attended a party or hosted one before. Our experience was wonderful! Of our party attendees, only 3 had built a bear before. I'm sure most will be coming back to add accessories or other animal friends. After the party, we enjoyed a bear cookie cake party with Mrs. Fields; thanks to your helpful suggestion. Tonight, we had fun accessing your website to create thank you cards. Thank you for your wonderful staff and fabulous product. We all wish you years of success in your business. Sybil B. St. Charles County, MO
My daughter celebrated her 11th birthday at your store in Alderwood Mall, located in Lynnwood, Washington. Both my daughters love shopping at your store and save up their allowance to do so. So I wasn't sure if the Birthday Party would really be any different than a normal shopping experience. But we were delighted by the whole party experience. My daughter's exact words were, "Mom, I am overwhelmed, I don't need anymore presents for my Birthday, Build a Bear Workshop was enough!" Both my husband and I feel that it was mostly due to the the fantastic Hostess we had for the party. She was so wonderful! Her name is Sarah M. I felt like leaving a tip for Sarah but wasn't sure if that was appropriate. So I'm writing to you in the hope that you will commend Sarah for doing such a great job and making my daughter's birthday one that she and her friends will never forget! I didn't leave Sarah a tip but I did have the party guests give her a big "Thank You Sarah!" cheer. Beary Satisfied Customer & Mother, Gina K. Mukilteo, WA
Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the bear I received for a gift for our Little Miss for our Pumpkin Festival which is held every year in Circleville, Ohio. This bear is just so cute. I just wish there was a way that all the sponsors would get these as gifts. You did a fantastic job and I will be ordering more bears. Angela S. Circleville, OH
The lion is gorgeous--its fur is so soft and lovely. Our school mascot is the lion and you had a cheerleader outfit in our school colors of gold and black and I got the lion dressed in that outfit. This is MY last year of coaching volleyball for our school--35 years!- and the lion will go to all our games this season. I will tell all the girls where to get one too. The floppy bear in a boxer outfit is going to our school secretary who is fighting cancer. That bear is cool too. I'm a long time customer at your stores and on-line. Thank you for a great and easy and fun product. Mary Jo M.
I don't have a build a bear workshop near enough to our family and my daughter learned about build a bears through a friend who took her to a workshop and bought her a bear. She now owns 2 and this gift will be her third. It is nice to be able to purchase it online so that I can continue to purchase them for her. I can also buy her gift cards so that she can pick out her own and build it herself.
I went into your store for the first time today in Appleton, Wisconsin. My husband and I were doing some early Christmas shopping and looking for ideas for my daughter's birthday. I was extremely impressed with the service we received. We had a sales associate named Sara come right over. I have never had anyone be as friendly and helpful as she was! She took time to answer all of our questions, give us information to take home, and tell us all about your website. She seemed genuinely excited about the store and the bears. I will definitely be going back to the store and having a party there in the future. Because of her enthusiasm, I can not wait to bring my kids in for not only a great gift but also a fun experience! Wendy B.

I recently made an online purchase with Buildabear, it was delivered yesterday (9/9/03) and I just want to say a Big THANK YOU. this was my first shoping experience with Buildabear. The wardrobe the Bear outfits came in was simply adorable = my Grandaughter will be so pleased. All my future gifts, I assure you, will be from Buildabear! Thank you so very much.
WOW! What great staff you have! Thank you for helping to make my daughter's 8th birthday her "best birthday ever!" While I would like to think that I had something to do with making her party special, I am aware that it was primarily your product and your staff. Each child was treated as a special customer and each child walked away from the store with a HUGE smile! Thank you! Sincerely, Jennifer B. Colchester, CT
Hi, I just wanted to say how much my daughter, Hayley, and her friends enjoyed her Build-a-Bear Workshop party at Quakerbridge Mall in Lawrenceville, NJ. We were very pleased with our hostess, Allison, who kept everyone entertained while building 11 bears. I was very impressed with the whole operation and will probably be back in February for my younger daughter's birthday. Thanks for making her birthday party special. Mindy S. Lawrenceville, NJ
Our Brownie Troop #6 went to Build-A-Bear Workshop for a field trip at the West County, St. Louis, MO store location. Before our trip I had already picked out our animals and outfits. This helped save time and decision making go quick. The girls had a GREAT time. Our host was Sharon. She was WONDERFUL!!! She was fantastic with the girls. They can't stop talking about how much fun they had. Thanks for having such a great staff and making this a Bearrific time. Michelle C. St. Charles, MO
I love the idea of this store. There is no better idea for girls than this! I love all the options and enjoy looking at all the clothes. I especially like to shop at Limited Too and buy the coordinating outfits for my daughter!
I think build a bears are wonderful. I think it is a better gift to give then just an impersonal toy from a toy store.
I would like to thank you for providing such a GREAT party for my Girl Scout Troop - they had the BEST time and your hosts were fantastic. I misplaced the names of the two people who really went out of their way to help me but one was the host - the other I believe was a manager. Our party was at your new location in The Westchester (NY) - please let them know their kindness was appreciated - Thank you - Anna M. West Harrison, NY
Very Nice! Good quality product for the price. A very unique idea. Keep up the good work!
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great store for young and old. Great gifts for all occasions.
The party was a lot of fun and I would like to give great big thanks to Tiffany and Jazmine who were our party hostesses. They did a great job considering that I had a large party of 16 six year olds at one time. I think that everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We will be visiting often to get other clothes and accessories as well as more animals to bring home. Thanks again for the successful event for Courtney's big day. Debra S. Hillsborough, NJ
I just wanted to let you know that I recently had a birthday party for my daughter, Amy, at your Salem NH store in the Rockingham Mall. The kids had a wonderful time, and they all love their beautiful new stuffed pals. Our party leader was Christine, and she was awesome! She really relates well to kids, and it is clear that she loves her job. She made the party so much fun for everyone. Thank you Christine, and the whole staff at the Rockingham store! We hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Theresa P. North Andover, MA
I love the product and am pleased with the seasonal line of products that come out throughout the year.
Nice variety of prices. You can spend as much or as little as possible.
My daughter, Lara, had her party at your store location in Aspen Grove, CO, yesterday and it was the most phenomenal experience. I am not sure who had the most fun - the parents or the children. To see the joy on all the kids? faces was an absolute delight and we had huge fun looking at the array of outfits. Each child left the store with the biggest smile, a new huggable friend and a memory they will treasure forever. Bridget, our Party Hostess, did an amazing job and kept the children entertained, happy and having fun. We will certainly be back and I am spreading the word fast! Many thanks, Fran K. Littleton, CO
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop! My husband and I have made 2 teddies now for our new Granddaughter and we think it is wonderful! Thank you for all that you do to save our wildlife also!
It's the first time we have seen anything that has a Naval Officer instead of the usual Sailor. Thanks!
Hi! Just to let you all know that we held our daughter's sixth birthday party this past Friday at Build-A-Bear Workshop in Crossgates Mall, Albany, NY. In addition to our 6 year old and her 3 year old sister, we had eight other 6 year old girls. Our party hostess was Jessica and she was absolutely fabulous! The girls had a WONDERFUL time and our 3 year old felt very included. Every parent commented on how great the party went and we have had comments from a number of party goers over this weekend about how much fun they had! We wanted to let you know that the entire staff was super, but Jessica was absolutely FABULOUS! Aimee & Stephen R. Latham, NY
I think that ALL of the build-a-bears are SO adorable, along with the clothing!!!...I wish it would come sooner but I don't have enough money!!...I LOVE Build-A-Bear Workshop!
I love the Halloween costumes. My daughter has never cared to dress up dolls but she loves dressing bears, dogs, horses, and lions.
I love the idea of personalized stuffed animals. It is a perfect, thoughtful gift.
Thank you to Mr. John at your Fort Worth, TX, Ridgmar Mall store location for a wonderful birthday party experience. My daughter and her friends had a great time, and they were so proud of their new Build-a-Bear Workshop friends! Two of the Moms have already scheduled their upcoming parties at the same store. Thanks again for the wonderful memories! Rene'e W. Watauga, TX

THE END From Darina Hope you like it
Wow, what a great job this store did! We had 19 kids ranging in age from 1-18, with a majority of 3 year olds. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about entertaining such a wide range of ages, but my little boy is still reeling from the excitement, All of his friends from daycare had a bring your bear day at school, and we have been fielding the thank you's and rave reviews from the parents ever since. What more can I say except BRAVO! Dante Pittsburgh, PA
My precious little girl had her 8th birthday at Build-a-Bear Workshop. What fun everyone had, not to mention how emotional I was when all the kids put a heart into her bear. Thank you for a great time. p.s. Best part - I did not have to clean anything...... Carmen M.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great store. From "Congratulations to I Love You"...Build-A-Bear Workshop is able to convey the best message at a reasonable cost. It's an ingenious and creative way to be a kid again.
I wanted to thank you for having parties at your stores. My daughter had her 8th birthday at the Galleria Mall in Nevada and had a blast. Christina, our host, was wonderful. This is a party that my daughter will remember forever. It was well worth the memories. I have been telling everyone about it. Thanks again Kathie R. Henderson, NV
Love the detail that goes into the merchandise. Love the animals and clothing, a first rate business.
Hi! I just wanted to give a big thank you to Sarah and Lindsay and all the other staff at the Alderwood Mall Build-A-Bear Workshop store. We had my daughter's 11th birthday party there. We had a total of 13 people making bears, 10 kids and 3 adults. My friend was not going to make a bear but as we were in our circle playing games while people took turns stuffing their bears, she couldn't resist any longer. (She ended up making a bear for her husband that should remind him of his favorite picture of her as a four year old earth child). Everyone, child and adult alike, had a great time and my daughter reports today from school that all her friends slept with their new friends last night! Sarah and Lindsay were great party guides and wonderful working with a bunch of 10 & 11 year old girls. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!! Carol S. Lynnwood, W
These products are so cute and so soft you just can't resist them. My daughter started this then my son wanted one. Now I?ve got to have them.
I adore Build-A-Bear Workshop! I think it is a wonderful idea to be able to personalize a stuffed animal. They make wonderful gifts...I've bought approximately 10 different stuffed animals and accessories as gifts for friends and family. I have also received a bear because everyone knows how much I love Build-A-Bear Workshop! I love the bears, and they are very habit forming - you can never own just one -- I love how they have all the holidays covered and new things out all the time. I love the new additions; just when you think you have it all - out comes something even sweeter.
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop. I love bears. I am an elementary teacher and I have four bears in my classroom. The kids love them so I purchased Holiday outfits with two bears for my classroom, and I purchased a bear with an elf costume for my Beary Best Friend. Thank you for providing such wonderful products.
I heard about your company from a friend who had received one of the bears in the mail this week and she was so excited about sharing how sweet it was and what a wonderful idea your company was offering.
I just wanted to write to let you know that my daughter just had her 8th Birthday at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store location at Paramus Park, New Jersey. This is her third party there and we have never been disappointed. None of the parties have been the same. I have to compliment you on the training and the personalities of the staff members. It was a pleasure to work with them and even the parents enjoyed the party. Thank you for getting it all done right and having fun while doing it. Debbie S. New Jerse
I am obsessed with your product. I have many different outfits and displays. The thing I like most is the accessories available to complete the effect that I am going for.
We had a fantastic party host here in Raleigh, NC (Crabtree Valley Mall). Her name is Ranada, and she was just super. She kept the girls laughing and playing, all the while creating these adorable bears! Our hats off to Ranada!! Linda C. Raleigh, NC
My daughter had her birthday party in July with "Miguel" at Palisades Center Mall. I just wanted to let you know that Miguel made the party excellent and she had a great day.

I just wanted you to know what a great party my daughter had at Build-A-Bear Workshop for her 9th B'day. It ended just 3 1/2 hours ago and I wanted to make sure that I wrote you while I was still so excited. We went to Ridgmar Mall in Ft. Worth, TX and it could not have been more fun. Our host was Cedric also know as Ceddy Bear. He was AWESOME!!!!!!! I don't think that I understood what a Build a Bear Workshop party was but now that I have I'm sure my daughter will not even think of anything else next year. Cedric had them dancing, singing carols and riding the roller coaster through the store. I haven't laughed that hard in so long. December is such a hard time to have a party for children and all the stress was taken out of it. He helped them pick out their bears, stuff them and even dressed them for the girls. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. I was suggesting to my Girl Scout troop that we take the girls there and after I tell them of this experience, I'm sure everyone will agree to go. Jackie M. Fort Worth, TX
We hosted my daughter's 5th birthday party at the Parks in Arlington with hostess Meaghan and everyone had a great time. Meaghan was so helpful and organized and kept things under control. A good time was had by all and my daughter will always have her bear to remember her party by. Thanks for a great concept and party. Stacy Z. Arlington, TX
Wow!!! My daughter just started off her 6th birthday at your West Side Pavillion Build-A-Bear Workshop. Johnny Tellez was SOOOOO terrific. I wanted to tip him for such a great party. All the girls loved everything. Johnny was very enthusiastic and wonderful. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know. Your selection is so great. Thanks again for such a fun start to my daughter's birthday. Bravo to Johnny!!! Sincerely, Maggie M. California
I think Build-A-Bear Workshop is the greatest store ever... i buy them as gifts for everyone.
I just wanted to say my daughter and her friends had a great time at her 4 year old birthday party today at Build-A-Bear Workshop. The staff (Desiree, Asia & Meghan) at the Roosevelt Field Mall location in Garden City, NY were great. They entertained the kids with songs and played games while stuffing the bears. They all had a blast. Since they absolutely refused to take a tip from us please acknowledge and commend them for doing such a great job. Cindy S. Massapequa Park, NY
My daughter loves the website as we don't have a store near us - she enjoys browsing the different clothes and accessories wishing her bear could buy them all!
Hi! Today was my daughter's Build-A-Bear Workshop party and I felt compelled to compliment the wonderful staff in Menlo Park Mall. Shereen, Sarah and Selina were our Party Bear Managers! They were amazing! They were patient and helpful! I had children ranging from 9 years to 4 months and they were great with all of them! I was relaxed at my own party which has never happened to me before! I felt so comfortable and had the utmost confidence in them! They made my daughter's party the success that it was and I am truly grateful! Please let them know that I think they are wonderful and belong working with children. I am a teacher and don't throw that compliment around lightly! Shereen, Sarah and Selina - you should really consider a future in education or open your own Build-A-Bear Workshop! Whatever it may be, make sure it's something to do with children! Thanks for a great party! Jennifer T.
I LOVE all my animals and all the ones I have sent to others! I have gotten several as gifts and bought for myself. I don't think you are ever too old for toys!
My daughter and I wanted to extend our thanks to your staff person Tiffany Clough for the wonderful birthday party experience held at your store at Montgomery Mall. Tiffany was enthusiastic, attentive and made the day a very special one for our guests, who ranged from age 6 to 14. Managing a party with such a wide age group is a real challenge and Tiffany made the party a big success for the first grader, 5th graders, and teenagers alike. We'll be sure to recommend your store to other parents, and that's because of Tiffany's hard work. Maureen L. Bethesda, MD
I just want to say thank you for my bear. My boyfriend came to visit me from London and he bought me the bear. Now he feels close to me every night when I hold my bear in my arms.
I really enjoyed being able to pick and choose individual items of clothing versus just buying an already coordinated outfit. I've heard great things about the Build-a-Bear Workshop stores so I thought I'd give it a try.
My daughter had her birthday party yesterday at the Fair Oaks location and I must say, she had a wonderful time, thanks in part to Allison the Build-A-Bear Workshop representative. We all will be coming back - most definitely. Again, Allison deserves all the compliments. Anonymous
I ordered this Poodle. My daughter saw and loved it, so for Valentines Day instead of getting more candy, she will get something she will love and have forever.
Just wanted to give you some positive feedback regarding my daughter's party at your Alderwood Mall store. The team leader was wonderful. She was organized, patient and very perky, even though we had a big range of ages in our group of kids. Although we ended up adding voices and outfits to some of the bears, at no time did I or the other parents feel any pressure to purchase add-ons from the party leader. While some kids took their time selecting outfits, our party leader helped the other kids add pretty bows to their bears. I will be happy to recommend your parties to other parents. I thought it was affordable, everyone had a wonderful time and the kids really enjoyed bringing home bears of their own. My daughter also loved the gifts she received from your store, especially the autograph pillow, which everyone enjoyed signing. Jenny Y. Lynnwood, WA
I was so delighted with the build-a-bear that I received that I decided to look online when I needed to purchase a gift. It was the quickest on-line purchase that I have ever made. No hassle . . . great product.
I purchased a bear as a welcome to a new baby for a friend's family. The purchase included personalized monogramming on the outfit selected to go with the bear and everything was perfect! Thank you!
Just thought I would write a quick note to tell you we had a wonderful birthday party experience at you Coquitlam Centre store. Party bears Wendy and Christy were wonderful with the group of 8/9 year olds. All of the kids really enjoyed themselves and I would be enthusiastic about recommending Build-A Bear Workshop for a party for any age. Pary B. Canada
I have always received exactly what I have ordered usually earlier than expected shipping and no one has ever wanted to return replace or not fell in love with this gift! I've sent bears and other animals to both young & old and for every occasion imaginable. Even my husband loves his monkey & skateboard!! This should be the first place to look for that unforgettable memorable gift for anyone special to you.
I just wanted to compliment you on how easy you made everything for our daughter?s 5th birthday party. The website made it so easy to book online, and we were able to print our invitations right from the site! And the party went so smoothly, the Town Center store staff really did a great job, and most importantly, Ashton had a GREAT time and said she wants her 6th birthday at Build a Bear, too!That?s definitely the biggest compliment of all! J ! And thank you notes have never been easier. It?s never fun to get kids to write thank you notes ? but this time I just had her dictate to me what she wanted to say, and I typed it in and hit print!! Just wanted to thank you for making this such an easy and fun birthday. We will be back, that?s for sure!! -Anonymous
Hi---I just had a fantastic birthday party at the Natick MA store, for ninteen 6 and 7 year-old girls who all had a wonderful time. Brenna and Lindsay were our helpers, and they truly did a great job keeping the girls smiling and engaged and having fun. Thanks! -Anonymous
My daughter had her 9th birthday party at one of your stores and the kids had a great time along with the adults who had just as much fun. My daughter said "Mom this was the best party I ever had". Thanks for making mom's jobs easier. -Joyanne M.
My 7 year old daughter Maggie Simon had her birthday party at your Build-a-Bear Workshop in Natick Mall in Natick, Massachusetts. This was our first experience at Build-a-Bear. Our guide was Molly Thibault and she did a wonderful job keeping 13 kids together and focused as they built their respective stuffed animals. The kids had a terrific time and my daughter was in absolute heaven at the end of it. She told me she wanted to have a party there every year, and kept thanking my husband and I for having her party there. Please pass along our extreme satisfaction to Ms. Thibault?she did a great job! You have a well-organized, interesting and kid-friendly business. We?ll be sure to visit it again in the future. Thank you for making my daughter?s birthday so memorable. -Patricia R.
My daughter Alexis just had her birthday party at Freehold Raceway Mall's Build-a-bear. The party was completely fantastic, thanks to the leader, Lyndsey. She made everyone feel great, and I know all the kids had a blast. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience, and especially to Lyndsey, for all of her hard work. -Mary D. Clarksburg, New Jersey
I just wanted to let you guys know that Kristen, in the Deptford, NJ Build-A-Bear Workshop is AWESOME!!! My daughter, Becca, celebrated her 6th birthday at your store, and had a fantastic time, thanks to Kristen. She was both fun and entertaining; the kids LOVED her. We have 3 more parties planned in the next month and a half and can not wait to return! I will recommend Build a Bear to everyone I know looking for Birthday Party ideas!!! Thanks again!! -Amy K.
My daughter had a BIrthday party at the Eastview mall store in Victor, NY. It was really great. Carolann did a wonderful job. She was very enthusiastic, kept the kids engaged, was very positive and had control of the group the entire time. Thanks for a great time. Sue L.
I just had to tell you what a fantastic birthday party my 7 year old daughter just had at your Opry Mills, Nashville, TN store. Kathy was their hostess and she was very good with the kids...she kept the party moving and called the girls by name and made sure they were all busy and having a great time. It was the best party my daughter has had! I will recommend Build a Bear parties to everyone!
In January, we had a Build-A-Bear Workshop party at your Freehold, NJ store. Nicole was in charge of our group. The girls (age 6) had a wonderful time, and it was all due to Nicole. She was wonderful with the girls, kept them busy and made sure everyone was happy and participating. There was one girl in our group that was 9 months younger than the others and Nicole made a special point to keep her involved with every thing even though she was noticeably younger! This was our second party we hosted at the Freehold store and we are all thrilled at the amount energy in the store. Keep up the go work in Freehold, NJ! -Lori H. Pt. Pleasant, NJ
I think that Build-A-Bear Workshop is a wonderful idea that all children and adults love! It is a wonderful way to personalize a child's gift.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!! We had the BEST time today, and I had to tell you as soon as I got home! EVERYONE was wonderful to us. Every now and again, your employees would walk by and ask how we were doing - and ALWAYS had a smile, ALWAYS had something nice to say, and ALWAYS thanked us for being their guest today. Very sweet bunch of people you have working in Birmingham. This was our first big Girl Scout trip to take away from our little town. We will be coming back next year!!! From the time we got there, until the time we left, THEY took care of everything. They explained everything to the girls (and me!) and answered all questions. When it was time to go, they figured in how much we allocated for each girl. I didn't have to worry about a SINGLE THING! I'm a kindergarten teacher, and a Brownie Girl Scout leader. My co-leader and I were *almost* dreading this today. You guys made today PERFECT. Thank you so much!!! Mitzi M. Russellville, AL
I had looked for something like this online after admiring another bear. Once I found Build-A-Bear Workshop, it had everything I could possibly want for that must-have" gift.
BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP IS THE ULTIMATE PLACE FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR A CHILD. IT IS VERY ENJOYABLE FOR PARENTS TOO.
My granddaughter?s second birthday was celebrated at your Wolfchase store. We had an absolute ball. Ms. Patty was so good with the children. I was a little hesitant because of her only being 2. However, she was totally engrossed in everything and followed directions to the letter. She stuffed her bear, hugged it and made sure it was sitting comfortably next to her. I can truly say every child attending (parents, too) enjoyed themselves. The birthday girl?s parents grandparents three brothers, uncles and aunts were among the guests. Thanks again for having us and being so helpful. Charlene J. Tennessee
Our daughter, Ariela, had a wonderful eighth birthday party hosted by Stephanie at the Build-a-Bear Workshop in the Paramus Park Mall, New Jersey. Lucky for me, none of the 14 kids invited had ever been to a Build-A-Bear party before, although I know that many of them will have a party at your shop later. I thought it was a terrific deal, really. One of the nicest parties we have ever had. The girls had fun and the bears they took home were just gorgeous. Between the bear houses and the animals, they each had a really first-class package for less money it would have cost me to take them to a smokey bowling or video arcade. I didn't have to pack goody bags, clean-up, worry about parents making it in time to pick-up (since they stayed at the mall anyway) . . . Just perfect. Just a top-notch experience from head to paw. Cheryl R. New York, NY
I really like the having a bear that I know no one else has and it is a special to give as a gift. I really like the fact that when I don't know what to get some one for a special occasion I can always get them a Build a Bear and it has special meaning
We are really happy with all of the purchases made from the Build-A-Bear Workshop. The quality of the animals is really good the clothes and shoes are adorable and everything stands up to daily play. We've referred many people to the store and website. We will be continuing to shop for future birthdays Christmases etc. Great prices very reasonable very fun and still very interactive even though everything is on-line. I would definitely come back to this site again! I think this is a great idea to be able to buy gift cards for anyone & let them experience building their special animal at a workshop by using their gift cards. It's very convenient for me to buy the gift cards online.
My son just loves to come there. He has several animals and is already planning what he will get next.
My daughter had her 13th birthday party at Build-a-Bear Workshop in the Palisades Center Mall. It was a full house on a Sunday with 18 party guests ranging in ages from 2 to 14, both male and female. Our party associate, Raffi, was not only wonderful, but very patient with such a large party. Everyone had a great time. I was told that my daughter was too old for a party there, but the parents took their words back after the party and are already booking their children's party there. They had such a great time! You're never too old to have a party there; even some of the parents wanted to make their own bears. My 10 year old can't wait to have her party there this fall. Thank you for such a wonderful time! Rose M. Pelham, NY
We were looking for something unique and fun to do for our daughter's 5th birthday party with her preschool friends. We decided on a Build-A-Bear Workshop party at Easton Town Center. Our party leader, Allison, did a fantastic job! We had 10 five-year-olds at this party, and Allison kept them happy, interested and excited the whole time - and kept them all together in a busy store! She was energetic, fun and outgoing. We couldn't have asked for a better party leader. She understood how kids think and suggested each child get the same accessory for their bears so no one had more than another. She was a treasure. Thank you Allison and Build-A-Bear Workshop! Keep up the great work! Mrs. K. Columbus, Ohio
I hosted six children for my five-year-old's birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop in Columbia, Maryland. Most of the six children, mine included, had never been to Build-A-Bear before. We were assigned LaChele as our party coordinator, and she was incredible. She chose games and songs that were perfect for this age group, she knelt down to speak to the children and catered to their needs. She made their experience a special one, and as a parent and the hostess of the party, I really appreciated that. If BABW has an "Employee of the Month" award, I nominate LaChele for her commendable customer service! Thanks for everything! Marlene N. Silver Spring, MD
I love the idea it gives a person the chance to specialize the gift themselves. Too cute.
A convenient, easy way to purchase gifts that grandchildren will enjoy What a great idea. I took my daughter and two nephews today. They had the greatest time and absolutely adore their new best friends.

We had a party at Build-A-Bear Workshop in Chandler, AZ. It was a fantastic party. Our host was Thomas. He did a wonderful job. He was very fun, energetic and entertaining to all the kids. The party was run very smoothly. The kids went from one center to the next and enjoyed each one. Thanks again. Sincerely, Laurie M. Chandler, AZ
I just wanted to take the time to tell you what a wonderful party I just had for my daughter at your Braintree MA store. My party host was Tyara and she was fantastic. She truly made the party a special occasion for everyone. Her upbeat personality and outgoing charisma had us all laughing and enjoying the party. I certainly hope her hard work is rewarded because she certainly deserves it. It is people like her who make the store successful. Please pass along my gratitude. Thank you for a wonderful party experience, you will be seeing me again soon. Best Regards, Jen H. Braintree, MA
All I can say is I am hooked. I'm on bear 2 planning bear 3. I may need a bigger house.
My son just celebrated his 5th birthday at your Build-A-Bear Workshop store in Arden Fair Mall. Krystle was the hostess for it, and she was awesome! She did so well with the kids, and they had so much fun. I just wanted to compliment her for a job well done! Thanks for the wonderful experience. My son will always remember it, and so will I! Arianna Sacramento, CA
I love the store and the product is always what you see on the website. It makes a wonderful gift for anyone.
Just wanted to let you know what a great party we had yesterday for my daughter at Build-a-Bear Workshop in Livingston, NJ. There were 18 kids and they all had the BEST time! (especially the birthday girl). Lianna was our Bear leader, and she did an amazing job with all the kids--the ages ranged from 3 to 18. Even though the birthday girl was turning 7 her cousins insisted on coming because Build-a-Bear Workshop is "so cool." We really had a great time and the staff was very accommodating, pleasant and cheerful. You really have a great thing going! Thanks and we will definitely see you again. Sincerely, Paige A. Livingston, NJ
I love the store it is so much fun to go in and build a bear with friends or by yourself. I love the concept of a Build-A-Bear Workshop animal because it is a great gift and something you can make so personal to the person you are giving it to especially now that there is the option to have things embroidered.
Wow! What an experience each of our guests had! I have been to Build-A-Bear Workshop? before, but our party exceeded all expectations! Many parents have since called to say their child is inseparable from their new Beary Best Friend! Our guests ranged in age from 4- 15 and each was as tickled as could be. Thank you for making my daughter's birthday so memorable! Our hostesses were so thoughtful and friendly, it was impossible not to smile and have a good time! Thanks again for a wonderful party! Jenn G. Annapolis, M
We just wanted to send a note of thanks to the staff at the Build-A-Bear Workshop?. We celebrated my daughter?s birthday with 8 of her friends. It was her best party ever. Michelle was great with the kids-she made it a lot of fun for them. Sue behind the counter was very helpful, too! We will definitely be back next year, and I'm sure a lot of times between now and then. Braintree, MA
I received a bear for Christmas this past year and it was extra special because he was brought to life with lots of love. Build-A-Bear Workshop? is an excellent idea. I really enjoy the stores.
The bears and accessories are so cute, and the joy of making one is unparalleled with any other company. I believe this is a goldmine of an idea. I will buy many more bears to come!
I had my daughter?s birthday party at your Palm Beach Gardens location. It was the best experience I could ever imagine. Your staff was wonderful. The party was supervised perfectly and all the party helpers were wonderful. It was a party of around 15 kids so to my amazement there was great order and organization. The parents of the children attending were so impressed and the children were completely delighted. I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for creating such a fantastic party and making my daughters? birthday memorable and a big hit! I have gotten several calls from parents wanting information. I will definitely have another party with you and tell others about how they can too. Kristy M
I love your store. I think it's a great idea. I treat all my friends and their new little ones to new Build-A-Bear Workshop? friends.
For my daughter's birthday, she had a Build-A-Bear Workshop? party at the store in Freehold, N.J. What a wonderful experience it was for all the children! The party hostess was just great with the kids! Everything was well organized as well as beautifully conducted. Great job! Seaside Park, NJ
I had a party for my 3 year old daughter today at the Emerald Square Mall, and it was wonderful. Amanda was our party coordinator and she was fabulous with the kids and made the whole party enjoyable and fun. Every little girl at the party was saying after that they wanted their party at Build-A-Bear Workshop?. Paula F Attleboro, MA
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop?! They always have SOMETHING related to the occasion I am shopping for.
You have a unique product that keeps me coming back.
I just wanted to take the time to let you know that I had a fabulous experience with my daughter?s birthday party Build-A-Bear Workshop? hosted at your DOWNTOWN DISNEY? District store. Our party helper was Sharon and she was amazing. There are not enough thoughtful words out there to describe her. She had to deal with 18 5- and 6- year olds and was truly patient with them. I was a little hesitant when that day began, thinking it was going to be crazy and hectic with so many kids. I was a stress-case but having a party person like Sharon took all my worries away. The kids really enjoyed their time there and I think this will be one of my daughter?s most memorable birthdays. I would recommend it to anyone and probably will end up having another party there. Thank you so much to Sharon for making my daughter?s birthday a wonderful, memorable, event. Sharon was an angel. Ginger K. Anaheim, CA
My daughter and I enjoyed every minute of our Build-A-Bear Workshop? experience. We hope to continue this as a mother/daughter outing. With this purchase we will have 3 different animals from your company and will continue to not only cloth them but provide them with every luxury that we as humans enjoy.
It was a good experience and was very encouraging to come back again and again for many good occasions. There were so many choices!
I wanted to write a note about a party I had yesterday. What a fantastic time we had, but more importantly, what a fantastic "party leader" I had! JoAnn Schultz was so perfect to greet all the children, reassure the parents, and then perform her heart out. She hopped, she sang, she marched, she stuffed, she sewed, so that my daughter and her friends had the time of their lives. I truly had a wonderful time, and so did the girls. They all went home with beautiful animals that were made with love, and I couldn't have asked for a better party. JoAnn was like having my mother there, directing me to "stick to the budget"; without that kind of experience and guidance, I would have spent a lot more than I originally planned. She is the best, and you can tell by this letter, that I really felt so strongly about expressing those sentiments to her managers. Thank you again, for a great experience...you will see us again!! Camie S. New York
I think it's the cutest thing I've ever seen and I wish it had been around when I was growing up. I probably would have spent ALL my parents? money there! Thank you.
I think it is the best idea that has come in a long time. They are great as gifts for all ages as well as great to collect. You can find a product to fit anybody.
My daughter had her birthday party today at the Build-A-Bear Workshop?. I just wanted to let you know that the host of the party, was excellent. The kids had a great time and he did a great job with the games, stuffing, etc. It was my daughters 2nd Build-A-Bear Workshop? party and I think she enjoys more each time. Thanks for the great party. Keep up the good work. Stacy B. Chandler, AZ
I recently had my daughter's birthday party at the Burlington Mall store. I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how amazing the party leader was. She did an absolutely incredible job running the party and keeping the kids entertained. The party was a rather large group, 16 kids ranging from age 5 -11, and they all had the greatest time making their bears. Please thank Michelle for all the hard work and enthusiasm she showed to the kids. Brett P. Arlington, Ma
I love this company. I have purchased numerous bears and other animals and love them all, and I'm 55 years old!
I have been very happy with all the items your store carries. You are doing a great job. My grandchildren love your bears and so do I. They are great for gifts.
Hello! I am writing with a compliment to your store. My daughter's Girl Scout troop had a party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Arden Fair Mall in Sacramento, CA. Our party leader was Travis. This was such a wonderful experience! Travis was so energetic and absolutely hilarious! Everyone, children and adults, was thoroughly entertained from the time we walked in. He is fantastic with the kids! We were so impressed by the quality of service that my husband and I scheduled our daughter's birthday there this July. We were also impressed with the value! The prices for parties are the best in town and everyone gets to take something home! We have been so pleased with this store that a friend of mine is going to have her daughter's birthday there as well! Sincerely, Sara G. Sacramento, CA
My son had a party last Friday at the Emerald Square Mall in Attleboro, MA. I want to compliment Kathy on her fantastic job as the party hostess. She had an incredible amount of energy and she really entertained the kids the entire time we were there. My son was so happy that day and he said that it was the best birthday party he ever had. I know all of his friends were just as happy!!! Thanks again to Kathy; she is really great at this job! Thank you, Laura D. Uxbridge, MA
Thanks for the convenient way to send a gift to my wife while I am deployed with the Air Force to Operation Enduring Freedom. It is a special way to let her know she is in my thoughts.
My daughter just had her seventh birthday party at Build-a-Bear Workshop in Crossgates Mall, Albany NY. All the children had a wonderful time. The staff was fantastic: helpful, fun, and energetic. They exceeded my wildest expectations! The parents that attended the party were impressed with the party as well - such attention to details! I couldn't begin to praise [the employee that coordinated the party] enough - the children loved her. They sang songs, skipped around the store - she was wonderful. I would (and have) recommend a Build-a-Bear Workshop party to anyone considering it. Thank you for making my daughter?s party one that she will remember for years to come. Lori H. Albany, NY
I love build a bear. I bought my flower girls bears for my wedding. I use them for Christmas birthday and just because.
I enjoy the store; it is fun to be a kid again. The service is terrific and they make great gifts.
I had my daughter's 10th birthday party at Build-A-Bear in the Smith Haven Mall in New York. Alexis was our "party leader" and I have to tell you that she was excellent. She was wonderful with the girls, answering their endless questions and dealing graciously with their comments about totally unrelated subjects. She was energetic and upbeat and she kept the girls interested, even when they had down time (ie. when taking turns to stuff their animals). The girls really liked her, and in the car on the way home they told me that she was nice and that they thought she was "really cool". You have an excellent employee in Alexis and I hope that this letter makes its way into her personal file. She's a keeper. Lori C. Lake Grove, NY
I just wanted to let you know that my daughter and son had a party at Build-A-Bear Workshop? in West Los Angeles, California Westside Pavilion Mall. They had such a wonderful time and Jenn was great!! My children are 4 years, 2 days apart and she made the party special for both of them, although the guests were mostly my daughter?s friends. That took special talent, as Jenn had to be sure the spotlight was not just on her, but also my son! Additionally, when one child was late, she made sure he was accommodated well and did not miss out on the experience! I am so pleased and happy with the results! Thanks again Jenn and Build-A-Bear Workshop for a wonderful and memorable event! Rosemary G. Los Angeles, CA
I have purchased many gifts from Build a Bear Workshop and have always been satisfied with the outcome.
I previously purchased bear as a Christmas present for my grandson. When it arrived we all fell in love with it. I will try to purchase a different animal/bear each year for him and any future grandchildren.
We just wanted to let you know that we had a very enjoyable experience at a Build-A-Bear Workshop? party! Our 11 girls decided to have one of their cookie sale rewards at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store. We visited your location at the Avenues Mall in Jacksonville, FL. Casey was the party coordinator, and she was wonderful. As leaders, we thought we would have to do the calculating, making sure the girls stayed in their limit, but Casey did it all. I don't think we quite realized all that went into a party, but it was very successful and very enjoyable, for all. We wanted to make sure that Casey got recognition for her efforts and helpfulness. Thank you! Michelle P. Jacksonville, FL
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with my daughter's birthday party. The party was held at Columbia, MD and was led by Cissy. She was wonderful, patient and very enthusiastic. My daughter, at the ripe old age of 8, announced that this was the best birthday party ever - no small praise as she has had a baseball party (where she actually got to announce a player over the loudspeaker), swimming party, movie party (complete with special items from the movie that had only opened the day before), and a pony party (with 3 ponies giving rides to the guests for an hour). Thank you very much for a great product and a very successful birthday party! Mary B. Laurel, MD
My daughter was especially pleased with the quality of the gift.
My daughter has at least 12 animals from Build-a-Bear Workshop. She loves them! She has two backpacks full of clothing and accessories and plays with them all the time
I had my daughter's birthday party at the Stonebriar location in Frisco, Texas. I just wanted to give some positive feedback. The girls that helped hostess our party were Sammy and Britney. I want to compliment these girls. They were great! They had lots of patience and kept the party fun. They obviously are very good with children. I think it takes a special type of person to work with children, especially a group of 3 and 4 year olds! They did a FABULOUS job! Thanks to all of you for helping make my daughters birthday extra special! Stephanie V. Frisco, TX
My niece loved her gifts, and the next time I need a gift idea for her I'll visit Build-A-Bear Workshop.
I wanted to thank everyone at Build-A-Bear Workshop at Brandon Town Center Mall in Florida. Eight Brownies, along with a few friends, visited last Sunday afternoon. We received a very warm welcome and found the employees to be so very helpful and kind. We had a wonderful experience and will plan another Build-A-Bear Workshop trip soon. Keeley G. Venice, FL
I just wanted to let you know that I recently held a party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store located in the Deptford Mall in Deptford New Jersey. I wanted to let you know that our party was a HUGE success. It was my Brownie Troop?s end of the year party to spend their cookie money. The girls were having so much fun; they didn't want it TO END .Carolyn was our party girl AND she did a fantastic job.She was exciting AND kept things well organized.Everyone LEFT the party happy WITH their bear AND the memories that they gained. AS their leader, it brought me joy TO see just how excited everyone was AND just how well the evening went.I just wanted TO let you know just how wonderful our experience was AND just what a pleasure Carolyn was TO WORK WITH .I didn't have to worry about anything that night, because Carolyn handled everything. I would not hesitate to bring my troop back to Build-A-Bear in the future. A big thank you to Carolyn and to the friendly staff at Build-A-Bear for making our big night a night that we will always look back on and cherish the memories. My daughter is still talking about our party and here it is a week later. I am sure that the rest of the troop is feeling the same way. Kim T. Washington Township
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop. My daughter has a great time every time we go in or order online. We are looking forward to purchasing another animal from Build-A-Bear in the next couple of days as soon as we find out if our child on the way is a boy or girl.
I have truly enjoyed each of the products I have received from Build-A-Bear Workshop, and I will continue to order from Build-A-Bear when I need to order a gift.
My daughter and her friend had a combined Build-A-Bear Workshop party for their eighth birthday. We had to drive 45 minutes to get to Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville, Iowa, but it was well worth it. The girls had an awesome time with Julie, our party coordinator. She did a great job helping the girls choose an animal and an outfit that fit their budget. The party was very low stress for the moms of the birthday girls. Everyone had a great time! The Coral Ridge employees were awesome! Anonymous Coral Ridge, IA
I received a Build-A-Bear Workshop bear as a gift. I have been back repeatedly ever since.
My daughter just had her seventh birthday party at the Build-a-Bear Workshop location in Natick, MA. She was a little disappointed that her party went from 15 guests down to only 7, so the first thing she tells our party coordinator is that she is there for a small birthday party. I thought that the party coordinator was very quick and wise to ensure my daughter that there was no such thing as a small party, that no matter how big or small the party, they were going to have an enormous amount of fun. And that's exactly what they had. Our party coordinator, had a tremendous amount of patience and creativity. She was fun, energetic and loving as well. I wanted to thank her and all of the store staff for the great time my daughter and her guests had. Even when singing the Birthday song, the entire store staff joined in and made it very fun and special. I'm really glad I've decided to agree on having her birthday with Build-a-Bear Workshop. My twins' birthdays will be coming up in April of next year and I would definitely choose your store again. Thank you, Melissa, and we enjoyed it very much. Claudia C. Framingham, MA
Build-A-Bear Workshop is my favorite place to shop for girls' birthday presents. I love everything about the stores and website. It is an awesome experience for kids (big kids too). It's not just a store - it's kind of like going to Disney World - it's something magical. Thanks for everything.
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop! They are fun to make and are great gifts.
My daughter?s birthday party was in June, and I want to leave a review for our wonderful party leader Stephanie in the Manchester, NH store. I just wanted to let you all know that Stephanie was GREAT! The kids loved her (and the adults did too!) She kept them busy and even did what she could to keep the party going (we started a bit earlier than planned) until the parents came to pick up their children! She even remembered my daughter when we went back a while later to pick up some accessories for her bear, and that really made her day! Thanks Build-A-Bear Workshop and Stephanie! Trish D. Manchester, NH
Thank you for having the personalized message feature. My husband is in Iraq, so this bear will let him hear us when times are rough for him.
I attended a birthday party for my niece at the Westside Pavilion last weekend. The host, Jon, was GREAT! I, along with all of the other party guests in attendance, had the best time. Jon had so much energy that even people passing by the store were enticed into coming in and seeing what was going on. I personally witnessed passersby coming in and making a purchase, after watching all of the excitement from the store entrance. With employees like Jon, I will definitely visit again. Kim S. Los Angeles, CA
I am seventeen years old and I have a blast shopping for Lenona the Lion. My friends and I have also bought many things from your store for our players for football basketball and baseball. Build-A-Bear Workshop is just an all around great gift!
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop. They make great presents for everyone and any occasion.
I brought 3 grandchildren to a Build-A-Bear Workshop and they loved every minute of their visit. Each child got their animal and are so proud of them. I am now buying clothing for them. We all had a wonderful time and I plan to take them on a return trip.
I had my daughter?s eighth birthday party. We had a great time and I wanted to let you know that the girl who did our party was excellent. Her name is Allegra and she works at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in Coral Square Mall in Coral Springs, Florida. She had such patience and made sure every child felt special. She even was able to handle my very pushy 3 year old. She definitely deserves some kind of reward for the great job. Adriana B. Coral Springs, FL
We just wanted to say thank you to Victoria and Charlie at the FlatIron Crossing Build-A-Bear Workshop store. They were so helpful in getting my four year old son's bear, Superman Skateboard, appropriately outfitted. Jared was so excited to see the vast selection of items for his bear. Thank you, Victoria and Charlie for making this such a fun experience! Jared Broomfield, CO
I wanted to compliment the service we received today from Emily, one of the employees in your Columbia, MD store. We had a small party for my daughter, and Emily was the hostess of our party. She did an EXCELLENT job with my daughter and her friends; she was very friendly and she made my daughter feel important and loved. Emily was very entertaining and had all of the girls laughing, playing, and singing along. She handled the party very well and kept it moving along so that it didn't get boring without making us feel rushed. Because of Emily's excellent service, both of my daughters want to have their next birthday parties at Build-A-Bear Workshop. Sean L. Columbia, MD
I absolutely loved my experiences with Build-A-Bear Workshop! I bought several as prizes for a seminar I attended as a vendor - they were the hit of the show!
I love your products having bought other bears at the retail store. Since we were going to be traveling to our grandchild's birthday, we decided to purchase online and have it sent directly to her. We have bought our other 2 grandchildren bears and they love them. We'll be back for #4 in a few months!
We just celebrated my daughter?s birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop. We had 9 little girls, which was a lot to me, but Danielle handled them with ease. We had one trouble-maker, and Danielle was great at making her part of the party. I thought the whole experience was fabulous and will recommend it to any parent. Danielle deserves a big pat on the back! Kate M. Scottsdale, AZ
We recently had my daughter?s birthday at the Ontario Mills Store. We had a fabulous time. Laney, our host, was wonderful. She really got the kids involved. We had a blast. The kids had a blast. It made a memorable birthday for Lyndsee. The store manager Jenn was also great. Thanks for making such a wonderful and easy party for my daughter. J. Chino Hills, CA
I wanted to let you know what a great job Alex did with my daughter?s birthday party on Saturday at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in the Coral Square Mall in Coral Springs, Florida. Everyone who attended the party, including the grownups, was very happy with the quality of service given by Alex. Her smile never left her face, even having to deal with 9 children ranging in age from 15 to 3, on a Saturday no less. The party was very well organized and my daughter is thrilled that she and all of her friends had such a great time. I would heartily recommend a party at your store to any of my friends. Thanks again, Gayle H. Coral Springs, FL
It was great! I will buy from you again! I loved that it was delivered in a cute box.... Thanks!
I am just writing to let you know about the great party your Kenwood Store in Cincinnati Ohio put on for my two sons (ages 4 and 7) We had 8 kids and they had a blast. I wanted to make sure that you know what a great job Elizabeth did. She was wonderful with all of the kids ages 4 to 7, boys and girls. She had them skipping, hopping, running and singing. She has a real knack with kids. Thanks again Build-A-Bear at the Kenwood TownCenter Mall in Cincinnati Ohio...you gave my two boys a party they will never forget!!!' Becky W. Cincinnati, OH
This was a gift for my daughter. She is thrilled!
I am writing to express how wonderful my son Kyle's third birthday party was at Build-A-Bear Workshop at the Freehold Raceway Mall in Freehold, NJ. Besides being very reasonably priced, the kids at the party all had a great time, as well as their parents. Our party associate Barbeara was very patient, and made sure the kids had a lot of fun! She knew exactly how to entertain a group of three year olds! I am a single mom who works full time, and this party was a perfect choice for me. How wonderful that the goody bags are included, and the guests get to bring home the bears they made! It was as if it was every child's birthday! All of the guests, my son included, had never been to Build-A-Bear Workshop before the party, but we will be sure to go back! Thank you so much for making Kyle's day special and fun. Laura S Freehold, NJ
We had a birthday party at the Des Peres, Missouri, Build-A-Bear Workshop store for my 7-year-old daughter. She and four of her friends had such a wonderful time! Brittany, the party leader, did an awesome job engaging the kids and making the birthday girl feel very special. We'll definitely do this again! Please pass along a special thank you to Brittany, if possible. Thanks, and keep up the good work! Sharyl H. Des Peres, MO
We recently visited the store in Knoxville and had a very good experience, largely due to one particular employee - Alison. Please pass on my thanks to her for making our trip a memorable one for us and our children. Her extra effort, enthusiasm, and interest in our children made the visit better than I had expected. Matt S. Knoxville, TN
I have used the Build-A-Bear Workshop a few times online and many times in the store. Since I am expecting a new grandchild any day now, I will be making another purchase very soon.
Everyone, including the parents, had a wonderful time at my daughter's 8th birthday party! Our party hostess, Zoraida, was fabulous! The kids loved the games and especially making and dressing a stuffed friend of their own. Zoraida deserves special recognition for her leadership and ability to entertain the kids. She kept the party moving, FUN, and helped the kids stay on budget. She is to be commended! All of the associates were helpful, kind, and professional. I would definitely recommend a Build-A-Bear Workshop party to others. Thanks to everyone at Build-a-Bear (located in the Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY) for making our party a success! Sande New York
I had my birthday party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in Towson Town Center Mall, Maryland with Brad as my party leader. He was fabulous with 10 ladies all over 30. We had a ball doing silly things and singing in the workshop. Last night my daughter celebrated her sixth birthday at the Towson Town location with 13 of her friends and Brad as her party leader, too. The kids were thrilled and Brad was awesome. We have quite a few animals from Build-A-Bear Workshop, and we enjoy ourselves every time we go. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. I especially like the bear that the children were able to sign as a gift from the store. What a great idea! Angela Maryland
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop! The animals are so cute and the accessories are also! It was really easy and fun! Thank you for your services!
I just wanted to let you know how wonderful my daughter?s birthday party was at the Paramus Park Store in Paramus Park, New Jersey. We had 27 ?kids? (ages 2-70) making bears, and that?s not to mention all the parents hanging around, too. It would have been really crazy if it wasn?t for the wonderful skills of Kim, Shayla, and Megan, who made the party fun for all. Please let the girls know how they were appreciated! Lori R. Paramus Park, NJ
I received 2 bears as gifts last Christmas and thought they were adorable. I had the pleasure to visit one of the stores this past weekend near Richmond, VA with my three grandchildren. It is such a neat idea and so much fun for the children as well as the adults. I bought 4 bears with accessories. That included one for me!
I just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful birthday party. My daughter and her friends had so much fun! Our party was at the Burlington MA store, and our party guide, Sarah, was the best. I really am impressed that we received a personalized thank you from her. She made our party the greatest! A very nice touch, not to mention the signed bear and the pictures all at no extra cost. A wonderful experience! Donna A. Burlington, MA
I absolutely love Build-A-Bear Workshop - I have shopped and bought NUMEROUS things (anywhere from the actual animal to products and accessories) - and Build-A-Bear Workshop is great for ANY and ALL situations - birthdays parties promotions etc. You have an amazing variety and the cutest products/clothes to personalize it.
My daughter celebrated her 6th birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop. We had a great time! All of the children at her party raved about all of the fun they had. I would like to thank Julie, the party helper; she did a wonderful job! We found her to be very patient, as well as entertaining. Thank you to everyone at Build-A-Bear Workshop (Rockingham Mall) for making my daughter's birthday memorable! Jennifer K. Salem, NH
I became a Great Aunt for the first time so I thought it would be a neat tradition to start. On every occasion or mile marker in life I can always find the right outfit at Build-A-Bear Workshop furry friend!
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great store. My daughter and her friends play with the animals all the time, and it is affordable.
Today, we had a wonderful Build-A-Bear Workshop party experience for our 9 year old?s big day. Elizabeth was very enthusiastic and kept the party "up" at a good pace. Everyone - even down to our very active 3 year old son, had a great time! Thank you for a memorable day as she starts the last year of her first decade! Jeannine K. Brandon, FL
My son loves Build-A-Bear Workshop animals. He now has 5 and looks for any possible reason to get a new one, especially when we travel. His Build-A-Bear Workshop animal becomes his souvenir from our destination.
We just had my daughter's birthday party at your Middletown, NY store. We had boys and girls ranging from 4 to 10 years old, and it was a huge hit. We loved that it was an activity and favor all in one. A few of the moms have called me to let me know that their kids haven't set down their bears for a few days now. I hadn't realized how inexpensive it can be compared to an at home party, and loved that we didn't have to do anything to prepare for it. We got to sit back and watch the kids giggle. We'd recommend it to everyone and plan to do it all over next year! My daughter has asked to go back again tomorrow for her actual birthday to make, record, and dress her dream pal. Jennifer G. Middletown, NY
Build-A-Bear Workshop has been an integral part of my children's lives starting when my oldest daughter (now 18) was in need of a special friend. Both of my daughters have had hours of enjoyment selecting, stuffing, washing, purchasing optional accessories, and playing with their friends. I'm certain that I will be purchasing from a nearby workshop for my grandchildren (still off in the distant future I hope!) Thank you for a superb product and wonderful concept!
I love the concept because it is something than you can do together with your grandchildren. It is an activity than everyone can enjoy together no matter what age group.
I just had to take a minute to let you know what a wonderful party we had for my daughter. Of course, I had read the reviews when I first visited your website, and I thought they must be exaggerated. Or maybe the mom's were still on that "birthday high" when they wrote them. I understood your concept and how cool it was, so I expected a nice party. What I didn't expect was the exceptionally high standard of customer service provided by EVERYONE at the store. Our party leader was awesome! There are many ways to do her job, but she really put her heart into it. Her big eyes and bright smile conveyed a genuineness that both the kids and the parents bought into. She was patient yet perky and even though she was having fun, I could tell that she was very organized and knew her job. She literally made the party. So chalk me up as one of those gushing moms that can't say enough about Build-A-Bear Workshop. What can I say, the legend is true. You guys take customer service to a new level. Your emphasis on training and commitment to excellence are obvious. Thank you again for the most fun we've ever had at a birthday!! You guys ROCK!! Brandon, FL
My daughter's Pre-First class took a trip to Build-a-Bear Workshop in Stonebriar Mall to make their class bear for the year. Samantha was absolutely wonderful! She was great with the kids and great with the parents, and so very entertaining. Jana Texas
On August 16, 2004 at the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury Connecticut, my two daughters had a Build-A-Bear Workshop party. They had such a wonderful time, and I want to let you know that the two girls who organized the party did an outstanding job. Please know that you have dedicated and enthusiastic people working for you that care about children. The girls? names were Cassandra and Jackie? perhaps you can look them up and give them a pat on the back! Kerry D. Danbury, CT
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop and was introduced to it by my 6 year old niece. This is what I have given her as gifts for the last year or so and she absolutely loves it. The stores are great and so much fun and ordering on line for the first time was so easy and quick. I was very satisfied.
You have great gifts for kids - they love to shop for clothes for their bears. Also, there are many stores in other states. That enables me to send gift cards to my nieces and nephews.
Hi I had a party for my 5 year old son today at the Build-A-Bear Workshop location in the Smithhaven Mall. I would like to let you know that the party hostess, Shelley, was wonderful. She had the children occupied from the moment they got there. My son, who is extremely shy, had so much fun as did my nephew, who has special needs. I just wanted to commend the staff at the Smithhaven Mall store. Jodi K. New York
I love your products. I have been to two Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and have ordered about a dozen bears over the past few years for myself my goddaughters and friends. I am very satisfied with the products and recommend them to people all the time.
We just celebrated our daughter's ninth birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop in the St. Louis Galleria store. We invited her whole class. (27 kids) The party was fabulous, and I highly recommend having a Build-A-Bear Workshop party. The kids were very aware of their budget, and I could not believe the math calculations that were going on - way more than in an ordinary classroom situation! It was so fun to watch them dress their bears and animals and to make decisions about what they wanted. The kids LOVED the party and our family so enjoyed hosting it. The quality of the toys is outstanding. The staff that helped the kids was so attentive, kid-friendly, aware of any potential issues. I planned this party with high expectations, and the experience we had exceeded them. Thank you, thank you, Build-A-Bear Workshop. We loved it. Mindy St. Louis, MO
We had a great party at your Burlington, MA location on Friday November 12,2004. Teresa was great and handled all of our requests and questions with ease. Great job to all. Keep up the good work. Jennie A. Burlington, MA
I love how you have the outfits for every occasion. My boyfriend bought my bear for me and he is in the Marines. I was so happy to find a Marine's Uniform.
My daughter absolutely loves all of her animals that she has made there. It's a wonderful reward and present.
I wanted to take a moment to praise your store. Our church recently had a building party at your Glendale, CA location. The 19 children at our event ranged from 3 to 11, and our hostess managed to keep the event fun and interesting for all--despite the outrageously crowded store. Your staff is fun and accommodating and helped to make our charitable event a real joy. Alex C. Glendale, CA
My family celebrated our twin daughters? fifth birthday at the Danbury Fair Mall location. Our twin daughters and their older sister had a blast. Friends and family are still talking about how much fun the party was. Thank you to Tami and her staff for making it such a memorable event. Beginning to end, everything was so easy. Hats off to Build-A-Bear Workshop for making wonderful birthday party celebrations. Dina Connecticut
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a great concept in giving your loved ones a stuffed animal with a personal touch as well as being fun for all ages, especially the young at heart. I LOVE Build-A-Bear Workshop and stuffed furry friends!
I recently had my Daughter's Birthday party in the Build a Bear at the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown NY. My daughter had a wonderful time as did all of her friends! Kristin was our birthday helper. I wanted to comment that Kristin was wonderful with all of the children - 11 of them! Kristin made my daughter?s birthday extra special by keeping all of the children entertained - and focused on the bear experience - Everyone had a wonderful time. Andrea S. Middletown, NY
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop and shop there for almost every occasion for my granddaughter. Keep up the good work.
Kevin from your Natick store is wonderful! I visited the store this morning with a floppy Rudolph, a noisy Cat and a torn Dog. He and his staff fixed each item I had. They also noticed that Rudolph's bell necklace was missing a couple of bells and one was barely on. It was replaced at no cost to me. In fact, everything was done at no cost. I can't stress how pleasant my visit was. It is very rare in these days to meet someone that has such a positive attitude toward the customer. Enjoy your holiday season! Thank you. Gail C Natick, MA
I think you offer a unique and fun product. The bears clothing and accessories are made with high quality. My family and I love Build-A-Bear Workshop!
Today my niece and I visited the Build a Bear in Rivertown Crossing Mall, Grandville, MI. Originally, I was only going to purchase the New York Yankees Baseball outfit. My niece overheard me talking and asked if she could come with me to make a Rudolph animal. When we walked in the store, I decided to make it a special day and as she was making Rudolph, I began making a Mrs. Claus Bear. The assistants at the store were so helpful and friendly. They showed us where the accessories were and also helped dress our newly made friends. I would like to say "thank-you" to the assistants at the store. Saturday afternoons can be very busy, yet they took time for me and my niece. It was a special day for us and I will always remember it. Thank you. Karen Grandville, MI
I love the idea that you can make your own little friend. This makes one of my best Christmas gifts that I will be giving out this year. I know that I am going to continue to shop with Build-A-Bear Workshop.
I love the whole idea and process at Build-A-Bear Workshop. It is wonderful to make for yourself or as a gift. I love it.
I know this email is very late but I have been meaning to email and compliment the associate that took care of my daughter's third birthday party. We had her party at Build-A-Bear Workshop. My associate the Joy, and she was so friendly, and the girls just loved her. I know it's late but I just wanted to make sure that I thanked her and everyone at that store for a job well done. I have friends and family that will be making reservations for their daughters to have parties there soon. Tanya Madison, OH
I am a Kindergarten teacher and I encourage my students to be creative. I think Build-A-Bear Workshop really gives children the opportunity to do so. I have also collected bear my whole life and just love the fact that I can create and customize my own!
I was in Pittsburgh on business, and I went to your Grand Opening in The Mall at Robinson. I just wanted to tell you how much I totally enjoyed shopping at your ?Friends2BMade" store. The store was fantastic and the sales people who were working that day were great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I have an 8 year old daughter and I made a "friend" for her and she absolutely loves it. I can't wait until you open a store in my area. Theresa R. Robinson, PA
I have always enjoyed shopping at your stores and now have an opportunity to send gift cards to my nieces and nephews in Ohio where you have just recently opened a location! You guys are awesome!
Build-A-Bear Workshop more than met my expectations. There were creative ways to present my gift to my granddaughter who visits your store at least twice a month. She will be thrilled with this gift as I was thrilled with the ease in ordering it. Thanks Build-A-Bear Workshop.
My 9 year old daughter had her birthday party at Build-A-Bear Workshop in October at the new store at the Independence Center located in Independence, MO. I was apprehensive that the costs would be high for such a nice 'treat bag' to take home the bear. I also feared that 9 year olds were too old for a Build-A-Bear Workshop party. The staff I talked to at the store and again on the phone were helpful and relieved any fears that I had about the party. We have done parties at 6 different places in the past, so I felt like I have a lot to compare this party to. The treat bags at the other party places were always so tiny that I always felt like I needed to bring other treat bags of my own also. The party that our leader, Virginia, had for us at Build-A-Bear Workshop was awesome. It was organized, kept their attention, made the birthday girl feel extra special, they kept the children all on the budget and worked with them to get them what they wanted. It was the easiest party I have ever had and the cheapest party. The dressed bears were so nice they did not need an extra treat bag and since they do not allow food in the store the cost of cake, punch, ice cream, silverware, cups, and plates saved another $50 or so. We will definitely do another Build-A-Bear Workshop in the future. Virginia was great and everyone working that night chimed in on the fun of it. Anonymous Independence, MO
I recently visited one of your stores in Overland Park KS. I took my niece there for her sixth birthday. I wanted to compliment you on your staff. When I visited your store was packed. The line went out into the mall hallway. Your whole staff remained cool through out my whole visit. Each one of your staff took the time to make each little kid feel special at every station. They each took time to talk to my niece and answer my questions. The overwhelming amount of people didn't rattle them at all. I use to work retail part time. I know how management and natural inclination is to rush things when you are crowded. You are to be commended for having such courteous well trained staff. -Tom
I'd like to take a moment to let you know what a wonderful experience we had with Build-A-Bear Workshop. I took 7/8 year-old cheerleaders for a party to make a bear at the Lakeside location in Metairie, Louisiana. Amber and Sarah were our hostesses and they were fantastic! They were so good with the girls and the couple of younger siblings that came along. They were very tactful with keeping the charges for the siblings that attended separate from the party charges while at the same time including the little ones. The parents had a great time as well. After our party was over, the girls did a quick cheer for Amber and Sarah and they acted as though the girls had made their day instead! What wonderful employees - please take care of them -Gia
I just wanted to take the time to let you know how pleased I am with your service and products. I am so impressed with your service first of all. I placed an order, everything was in stock, you informed me when you received the order, then again when it shipped. Then I received it in only 2 days! Secondly, your products are not only adorable, but also of a very good quality. I am very happy with your company and will recommend you to everyone! Thanks again. -Billie
My daughter had a wonderful party at Build-A-Bear Workshop celebrating her 8th birthday! The celebration was at your new store in the Trumbull Mall in Connecticut. We were so impressed by the bear leader, Jessica, who was so enthusiastic and made the day so special! The store manager, Stefanie, was all smiles and she was so helpful. Lauren says she wants to come back for her 9th birthday. -Anonymous
We just want to thank you for your wonderful employee, Kyle, at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store in Bridgewater Commons Mall, Bridgewater, NJ. We had our daughter's 9th birthday party there on Friday, November 12, 2004 at 6pm. There were 10 girls ages 8 and 9. Kyle was just wonderful with them. She kept things moving along, kept everyone happy, was positive and upbeat, made everyone feel special, and gave each girl the attention they requested of him. Great job Kyle! Keep up the good work. -Carol
We just celebrated my daughter's birthday at Build a Bear ( Novi, Michigan). It was wonderful! The kids had a great time, and after the party my house was clean. The best part was that instead of wasting money for grab bag goodies, the kids each had something special to take home. Our party time was at 10:00 A.M., which worked out well because we had a good start into the party before the store got busy! -Rose
Hi, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time my 5 year old granddaughter had at her birthday party. We had her party at your Build-A-Bear Workshop West Town Mall in Knoxville TN. Everyone at the party remarked about how great it was. Doug was the party leader for our group and what a wonderful person to represent your company. You can tell he really loves what he does. Doug made it such a wonderful time for Fiona and her friends and I am sure they will be talking about it for quite some time. In fact everyone we encountered today was so pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend to others that they consider having a party at this location. As a company you can be proud of the job they do at West Town Mall. Thank you for a great time. -Diane
My now fianc? traveled down to Castleton Mall in Indianapolis. He purchased the Nikki bear II for me. On November 6, 2004 he got his parents and mine together. We went to dinner and every one in the restaurant knew what was going on. He had his step dad go out and bring in the "I'm going home box". Inside the box was Nikki's bear 2 in the bridal gown holding the red heart that says I love you on it and in the back of the heart was my engagement ring. Of course I told him yes. Since he got me the bridal bear I made a trip down to get him the groom. I purchased the polar bear and put him in the tuxedo and gave him to him as his engagement gift. -Amy
I just wanted to drop you a note to compliment your employee Steve Szabo. My daughters and I have been visiting your store in the Quakerbridge Mall on several occasions and also had birthday parties there. Steve is ALWAYS pleasant, very willing to help with whatever he can, always briefing us on upcoming bears and specials. We were in the store a couple of weeks ago originally in search of "LiveStrong" bracelets. He told us he could hold them for me when the order came in and would call when they were available. He showed us the Rudolf that was coming out soon. We ventured back into the store when the bracelets came in and to get Rudolf. My daughters were deciding what "accessories" they wanted while we waited to stuff their deer..... Needless to say, they had Steve running around the store like a madman, with smile on his face, trying to find all the accessories they "had to have". Steve is always friendly, especially towards the kids, always has a smile on his face, and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure the customer is happy. -Donna

He kept things moving along, kept everyone happy, was positive and upbeat, made everyone feel special, and gave each girl the attention they requested of him. Great job Kyle! Keep up the good work. -Carol
We just celebrated my daughter's birthday at Build a Bear ( Novi, Michigan). It was wonderful! The kids had a great time, and after the party my house was clean. The best part was that instead of wasting money for grab bag goodies, the kids each had something special to take home. Our party time was at 10:00 A.M., which worked out well because we had a good start into the party before the store got busy! -Rose
Hi, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time my 5 year old granddaughter had at her birthday party. We had her party at your Build-A-Bear Workshop West Town Mall in Knoxville TN. Everyone at the party remarked about how great it was. Doug was the party leader for our group and what a wonderful person to represent your company. You can tell he really loves what he does. Doug made it such a wonderful time for Fiona and her friends and I am sure they will be talking about it for quite some time. In fact everyone we encountered today was so pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend to others that they consider having a party at this location. As a company you can be proud of the job they do at West Town Mall. Thank you for a great time. -Diane
We just celebrated our daughter's ninth birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop in the St. Louis Galleria store. We invited her whole class. (27 kids) The party was fabulous, and I highly recommend having a Build-A-Bear Workshop party. The kids were very aware of their budget, and I could not believe the math calculations that were going on - way more than in an ordinary classroom situation! It was so fun to watch them dress their bears and animals and to make decisions about what they wanted. The kids LOVED the party and our family so enjoyed hosting it. The quality of the toys is outstanding. The staff that helped the kids was so attentive, kid-friendly, aware of any potential issues. I planned this party with high expectations, and the experience we had exceeded them. Thank you, thank you, Build-A-Bear Workshop. We loved it. Mindy St. Louis, MO
I wanted to take a moment to praise your store. Our church recently had a building party at your Glendale, CA location. The 19 children at our event ranged from 3 to 11, and our hostess managed to keep the event fun and interesting for all--despite the outrageously crowded store. Your staff is fun and accommodating and helped to make our charitable event a real joy. Alex C. Glendale, CA
I recently had my Daughter's Birthday party in the Build a Bear at the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown NY. My daughter had a wonderful time as did all of her friends! Kristin was our birthday helper. I wanted to comment that Kristin was wonderful with all of the children - 11 of them! Kristin made my daughter?s birthday extra special by keeping all of the children entertained - and focused on the bear experience - Everyone had a wonderful time. Andrea S. Middletown, NY
My family celebrated our twin daughters? fifth birthday at the Danbury Fair Mall location. Our twin daughters and their older sister had a blast. Friends and family are still talking about how much fun the party was. Thank you to Tami and her staff for making it such a memorable event. Beginning to end, everything was so easy. Hats off to Build-A-Bear Workshop for making wonderful birthday party celebrations. Dina Connecticut
My 9 year old daughter had her birthday party at Build-A-Bear Workshop in October at the new store at the Independence Center located in Independence, MO. I was apprehensive that the costs would be high for such a nice 'treat bag' to take home the bear. I also feared that 9 year olds were too old for a Build-A-Bear Workshop party. The staff I talked to at the store and again on the phone were helpful and relieved any fears that I had about the party. We have done parties at 6 different places in the past, so I felt like I have a lot to compare this party to. The treat bags at the other party places were always so tiny that I always felt like I needed to bring other treat bags of my own also. The party that our leader, Virginia, had for us at Build-A-Bear Workshop was awesome. It was organized, kept their attention, made the birthday girl feel extra special, they kept the children all on the budget and worked with them to get them what they wanted. It was the easiest party I have ever had and the cheapest party. The dressed bears were so nice they did not need an extra treat bag and since they do not allow food in the store the cost of cake, punch, ice cream, silverware, cups, and plates saved another $50 or so. We will definitely do another Build-A-Bear Workshop in the future. Virginia was great and everyone working that night chimed in on the fun of it. Anonymous Independence, MO
We love Build-A-Bear Workshop, and we are always happy with our experiences with them whether it is at a store or online. Keep up the good work!
I just had a wonderful experience at your "Build A Bear" store (Summit Mall, Akron, Ohio). My granddaughter, Alissa who is 7 years old, was diagnosed with a heart disease (Long QT Syndrome) a year and a half ago. Four weeks after being diagnosed, she had surgery to put an ICD in her belly. This is a defibulator and pacemaker device. She will have this device for the rest of her life. She has a lot of restrictions in her life now and has struggled with being different from other kids. We have found a few things that have been helpful. Last summer she met other kids who had heart diseases and some even had the ICD like her. Then later last year she met a nurse who was able to show her what the device really looked like. She even got to pick it up and hold it. She was so amazed and excited to be holding one. A week or so ago I saw you on Oprah with the "Build A Bear". When I saw how much attention went into placing the heart in the bear, I was amazed. I knew she would soon be getting a gift certificate from her cousin to Build A Bear. I remembered the defibulator we had seen last year and thought wouldn't it be great if we could get one to put in her bear. I contacted the hospital where the nurse we met last year worked. I asked to speak to a nurse in Cardiology. I explained that I was looking to get a used/old defibulator to put in a "Build A Bear" for my granddaughter and why I wanted the defibulator. To my amazement, I had been connected to the same nurse we had met last year and she remembered Alissa. Well she got us a defibulator and this past Friday we took Alissa to Build A Bear. She chose a bunny to make! We were again surprised because the girl who was working the stuffing machine happened to be a mom we had met last summer at the picnic where Alissa met other children with heart disease. This mom also has a daughter with a heart problem. Thank you for dreaming up such a wonderful place. Because of you and your wonderful staff and a nurse who truly cares for heart patients, Alissa has this bunny that she cherishes for several reasons... One, she loves bunnies; Two, it is soft and cuddly; and Three, it is just like her - It has a defibulator!!! I attached some pictures below. Maybe this theory could be brainstormed by your advisory team and assist other children with medical issues or disabilities....
My daughter had her 7th birthday party. It was at the Roosevelt Field location, Garden City, NY. Our party leader was Jimmy. He did such a great job. There were 13 girls and he kept all of them happy, contained, and in giggles. He was very animated and full of energy. We go to this location at least every 6 weeks and always have a great experience. All of the parents that stayed were amazed at how great the party and kids were handled. Every little girl walked away so happy. That Monday, when I picked my daughter up from school, several of the girls came up to me and told me they all slept with their new furry friends. It was so great to see and hear. Jimmy was fantastic and should be commended on handling the girls so well. He's a great asset to that store. My daughter was thrilled to have received a note from him today. She'll tuck that away in her memory box. Keep up the good work everyone! Larry R Bellmore, NY
We had a birthday party for my daughter at the Ridgmar Mall location. The party was great. The party hostess was Norita. She did a great job!!! The kids just loved her. Thanks so much. Teresa C. Fort Worth, TX
I love your product & the whole Build-A-Bear Workshop experience. I have shopped with you both online and at my local store. Great Job!
Your ?workshop? is a neat idea. My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed every trip she has made to your store and loves checking your website for new products. I look forward to sharing the "beary" fun experience of Build-A-Bear Workshop with my new son as he grows up!
I just felt I had to write to let you know that our party hostess Melissa was absolutely the BEST. My son had his 8th birthday party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in Columbia Mall. Melissa really made the party so wonderful; she had so much energy. More than anything she really portrayed to the children what Build-A-Bear Workshop is all about. Even though many of the children had already made bears there before, they were simply blown away by the experience made possible by Melissa. I just can't say enough good things about her. I would recommend this type of party to any of my friends. I want to thank her for making my son?s birthday so special for him, and for all of his 14 guests Lisa Z. Maryland
We had my daughter's 7th birthday party at the store. Mackensie did an excellent job! She was so friendly and patient and kind and enthusiastic. Sue Santa Clara CA
My daughter and I received a gift card from a friend. We went to the store and loved the experience. We are now sending a gift card to the friend who gave our card to us so she and her mom and brother can have fun too.
I gave my daughter a party at the Westfield Valley Fair Mall San Jose CA. Our party helper Jackie was great, she took her time with my guest (children and adults) she made the party girl feel really special. We have been to BAB many times before but my daughter could not quit talking about this time and her helper Jackie which happens to have the same name of her grandmother because of Jackie she wants to go back again today and some of my guest would like to book parties at BAB and have Jackie as there host. So please let Jackie know that she was great and she will be seeing a lot of my friend and family soon. Lori H.
The idea to make your own animal and clothes it is truly unique - better than a Cabbage Patch Kid like I had growing up. You even get to name your friend! I commend Build-A-Bear Workshop on an exciting website and innovative idea! I plan to go back and buy my soon to be 3-year-old one for his birthday!
We recently had a birthday party for our daughter at one of your shops. I just wanted to compliment your employees at that store. We had the party at the Concord Mills, NC store. Branden and Spencer did an excellent job. They were wonderful. They had such a nice rapport with the children.We had 15 kids attending, and we were so pleased with the way the party was handled. They made sure that each child had a good time. Sandra W.
I love the merchandise from the store.
I wanted to let you know that my daughter had her 10th Birthday at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Crossgates Mall in Albany, New York. What a FUN day! Our party person, whose name was Lauren, was fantastic. She made the party a great success. It was a stress-free, relaxed party. I chose to set a limit of $25.00 per child and they were each able to not only get an animal, but also an outfit of some sort. Please commend Lauren for an outstanding job she did with us. I would return over and over again. Lisa M. Hudson, NY
I love the merchandise. very nice web design, nice products at GREAT prices.
My youngest daughter, had her birthday party at your Natick location. Her party consultant was Jess, who was phenomenal! Please make sure to recognize this exceptional employee! I also want to mention that my oldest daughter had a party at the same location. Our consultant that night was Jen, and once again, she was absolutely superb! These parties can be quite costly, but the quality of the bears, accessories, the party atmosphere, the person running it, and the activities sure make it worth it. I wouldn't hesitate to have another or recommend one to my friends. The two young ladies who worked with my children and their friends were caring, compassionate and just plain fun! They are a credit to your organization. Carrie D. Massachusetts
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop! What a great idea!
I just wanted to let you know what a gem you have in Nicole at the store in the Southlake Mall in Merrillville, IN. Our Girl Scout troop had a party there and Nicole was our Beary Good Friend. We brought 13 very excited, chatty, giggly Brownies with us, and Nicole handled the party with the utmost in professionalism and fun! She excels in crowd control, handling the girls with just the right amount of firmness and fun. The girls had a wonderful time. Most of them had been there before, of course, but they all love going back! My daughter's birthday is coming up and if she wants to have her 8th birthday party at Build-A-Bear Workshop, I will definitely request to have Nicole there. She's just wonderfully amazing and I hope the store realizes what a prize they have. Valerie M. Crown Point, IN
I really enjoy the high quality of your products and the fact that I can have it sent to anyone especially if they live out of state-so convenient. Thanks a bunch!
My daughters and I visited the Grandville store in Michigan. The ?bear handlers" were absolutely wonderful. Each lady made my daughters feel like there were very special. On our way home they asked when we were going to return. It was a time that was memorable. I loved the idea that I was allowed to take pictures for their scrapbooks and use my Build-A-Bear Workshop scrap booking supplies.
We had a party at the Concord Mills Store. My daughter turned 9. Our "helpers", Shirley and Renee, did a wonderful job! They were extremely enthusiastic, energetic, and most of all patient. All of the girls had a wonderful time. Susan B. NC
I would like to thank your Castleton store in Indianapolis, Indiana and our party leader Megan for doing such a wonderful job with my daughter's birthday party. Her group had a wonderful time thanks to their leader! Again I would like to send a special Thank- you to Megan! T. Ward Indianapolis, Indiana
I took my 2nd-3rd grade Brownie troop to your Manchester CT store and we had a wonderful time. The store was very clean and the party was very well organized. The staff member who did our party was fabulous. I just booked my daughters 8th birthday party here and I am sure I will be equally as happy. K. Moore Manchester, CT
We had a party at the Menlo Park NJ Build-A-Bear Workshop for my daughter. I was very pleased with the event. Our party helper, Melissa, was enthusiastic and patient with the kids. She handled late comers without a problem and kept everyone on track with a smile. I also want to comment that the manager was visible and checked in with me several times to make sure everything was going ok. It was, but I was appreciative for her checking. When my younger one is ready, we would do it again. D. Shepherd
My kids and I have visited stores in Anaheim San Diego and Las Vegas. Your employees are always very friendly and helpful even at the busiest of times. My children really enjoy the Build-a-Bear Workshop experience. Jen at the Las Vegas store was incredibly happy energetic and the great with the kids (even being there by herself with 10 customers waiting)
My children went to the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Ridgmar Mall to purchase a Labrador retriever and a Westie dog. Devastated when they found out the store was out of these dogs, our children began to cry. The sales representative Catherine was fantastic. Our youngest child was also excited about a bunny rabbit Catherine showed her. And Catherine also satisfied our oldest child showing her we could order her Westie dog on-line. Catherine is a fantastic sales representative for Build-A-Bear Workshop. Thank you very much!
This is to write praises for Sarah's leadership during an 11th birthday party at Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem. She did a superb job and deserves kudos. We wanted you to know what a great job she did. The kids loved her and now my 7-year-old son wants his party at Build-A-Bear Workshop. Tracy Cameron Hays NC
My daughter had her birthday party at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in Greenville SC at Haywood mall. It was great everyone had a blast. My daughter could not have had a better party. Her host was Zaq and he was an excellent host. He played games with all the kids and made sure everything was well organized, Thank you for providing such great services. My daughter already said she wants to have her next party at Build-A-Bear Workshop. S. Wilmot Greenville SC
We recently took our triplets to Disneyland for their birthday. We have four children and let them loose in Build-A-Bear Workshop as a special birthday treat. They made lovely stuffed toys dressed and talking. It was just as fun for me to watch them enjoy the experience. I would also like to say that the Disneyland store is quite busy. The employees made my kids feel like they were the most important people in the store. Great job! N. Mace
We went to the Coral Ridge Build-A-Bear Workshop on Mothers Day. Rikki was our leader for our party. We had six cousins there, celebrating one of the girls' 4th birthday. This was a very special time because my dad has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had all of his grandkids with him for the first time since the diagnosis. Rikki was absolutely fantastic! She called every child by name frequently, and had even the adults laughing and enjoying themselves. Someone higher up needs to know what a great job she did and how she truly made our special day even more meaningful. A. Kranz Guam
I visited a grand opening at a neighborhood mall. It was exciting, and I knew my grandson would just love to have the experience of making his own bear, especially since he left his old bear in a city far from his home during a holiday visit. I knew he needed a new replacement bear and what better way to get one than to make your own!
I LOVE this company! We have had such great experiences that I recommend this to everyone!
Our daisy Girl Scout Troop recently had a Build-A-Bear Workshop party at the Independence Mall in Kingston, Mass. and we had a blast! The girls were very shy at first but our 2 party leaders (Kelly & Hillary P.) were awesome. They had them giggling in no time. We had a really great time and if they meet their goal next year I'm sure we will be back! M. Bourne, MA
I love to shop at Build-A-Bear Workshop. I have quite a collection of bears and clothing/accessories for my grandchildren to play with. I also use this as a tool to teach them to dress modestly.
I wanted to write regarding a birthday party for my daughter which was held at the Oakview Mall store. Eric was the 'party bear' and he did a WONDERFUL job. We had 7 kids with us and were not able to spend much money ($15.00 each) so we didn't give them much to work with. Eric did a great job of keeping the kids occupied for the full hour and the kids enjoyed themselves immensely. J Elster
I have loved watching my children make stuffed animals at Build-A-Bear Workshop. The sparkle in their eyes is absolutely priceless. I just had to share this wonderful experience with my dear friend's child. I hope she loves the experience as much as my children and I have.
I love Build-A-Bear Workshop. It?s so fun and I love the bears and the variety of bears that one can choose. I also love the variety of clothes they have to offer.
My daughter and I love shopping at Build-A-Bear Workshop. It is so much fun to pick things out for both of us. Thank you for making this type of store available to us.
I just wanted to let you know that our "party guide" Erica was totally fantastic! My daughter had her 9th birthday party at the Knoxville location yesterday and the kids (and moms, too!) had a wonderful time, and Erica was the reason for it! She made my daughter's birthday so special! One that I am sure that Cassidy will never forget! V. Adkins Oakdale, TN
I like the whole Build A Bear Workshop concept, and they make really great gifts!
I wanted to let you know how great Jessie and the staff at the Bridgewater Build-A-Bear Workshop were for my son?s birthday party. Jessie was so dynamic and my son had a great time. I wanted to take the time to let you know that you have a great employee! E. Edge Basking Ridge, NJ
I think Build-A-Bear Workshop is for people of all ages. I'm 15 and have a Build-A-Bear Workshop animal myself. I've made several purchases through Build-A-Bear Workshop to give as gifts, and they all have been greatly enjoyed. Thanks for your services!
My daughter had a birthday party in your store in Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY and I want to say what a wonderful experience for all who attended. Our Party leader, Jessica M., was absolutely wonderful. Our group ranged in age from 4-16, and I must say that she was able to keep the attention of all involved. She did a fantastic job with all the kids and I just wanted to let you know what an excellent leader she was. I can't wait to bring my daughter back there again. Again, thank you for a wonderful party for my daughter. -Anonymous-
I just wanted to say thank you to your staff at the Deptford, NJ store for making my daughter?s birthday a great one! The staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially, Saran Dunn. Sarah took her time with each of the kids and made everyone's visit to your store enjoyable. Sarah had a lot of patience and genuine concern with the kids. You should know that all the kids at the party, as well as the parents, were very pleased with everything and complimented Sarah's ability to deal with these young children. Thanks again for a great time! Angela New Jersey
We Love Build-A-Bear Workshop! I am always satisfied and actually delighted with our purchases!
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a fantastic store. The quality of the bears clothing and accessories at affordable prices is what keeps me coming back for more. Keep up the innovations and I'll keep coming back to buy more.
I love your stores and your employees. Everyone is ALWAYS so friendly!
Build-a-Bear Workshop is not age-biased! When I got a bear the associates treated me with just as much kindness and delight as they did my daughter! I loved that! Thank you.
I would just like to express how wonderful your employee Amber is at the Fashion Valley Mall Store. My daughter got to purchase her 3rd Build A Bear and Amber was the employee that was filling the animals up with the filling. She is WONDERFUL with the kids. My daughter was so happy. Amber is a great asset to Build-A-Bear Workshop. I spoke with her manager, but I just wanted someone in the corporate office to know what a great job she does. Regina California
I would just like to pass on a pleasant comment to you in regards to two of your party coordinators at the Oxford Valley Mall location in Langhorne PA. We had a scheduled Girl Scout Party on June 12th and Holly was our coordinator. She was excellent with the different age groups of girls as I had a Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes. We had a Birthday party for my daughter at the same location and Katie was our coordinator. We again had a wonderful time having children from age 4 up to 14; she was wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will be trying your other location in Cherry Hill, NJ. Eleanor Langhorne, PA
I love to take my Grandchildren to your stores as they get so excited. They play for hours with all their furry friends. Thank You!
I love their products, and they are very reasonably priced.

The concept of dressing up bears is interesting. Bears are great tool in reading especially for children who are learning to read. BEAR stands for B-e E-nthusiastic A-bout R-eading.
The product we received from Build-a-Bear Workshop met our expectations. This is a great company and shopping online was really easy.
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful employee you have in Kara. My daughter and 6 of her friends celebrated her 9th birthday and Kara was the party host. She was fantastic with the kids. She told jokes, sang songs, helped them with their selections and was just all around "FUN". A big Hats off to Kara for her wonderful service and attitude with the children. I would definitely recommend Kara and Build-A-Bear Workshop to all of my friends. Thank you again for having such a dedicated employee. Debra
This is such a personal way to keep in contact with my great nieces and great grandchildren.
I just wanted to send a huge thank you to Kate Lynch who was the party coordinator at my daughter?s 9th birthday party. She was absolutely great to work with and the kids loved her and the party. One of the girls even said to me, " I hate to admit it, but this is the best birthday party I've ever been to". Thank you for helping us give our daughter and her guests the most memorable birthday! Carolyn
I have bought Build-A-Bear Workshop animals many times before. It is so easy and safe to shop online. My daughter's boyfriend and my boss are Eagles fans so I felt this would be a nice gift. I will be purchasing animals soon.
All of the products are so adorable, and it was so hard to choose among them!
