Find-A-Bear? ID program

Helping lost furry friends find their way home to you

Find-A-Bear<sup class='rMark'>?</sup> ID program

We developed the Find-A-Bear? ID program to help your furry friend find its way home to you if it is ever lost. Every Build-A-Bear Workshop? furry friend you make is stuffed with a barcode. When you make a birth certificate at the Name Me station you can enter your new friend in our Find-A-Bear ID program by entering your contact information. If your furry friend is ever lost then returned to us we can hopefully use this information to send it home to you. If you move, remember to contact us to update your information.

We know many furry friends that go on family vacations are left behind in hotels with no way to find their way home. To rescue these little lost friends, we are teaming up with Embassy Suites Hotels? across the country. If a Build-A-Bear Workshop? furry friend is ever accidentally left behind at an Embassy Suites Hotel, they will partner with us to try to return it back home to you. Embassy Suites Hotels?

"I am sending this as a HUGE thank you!! My daughter just received her kitty by UPS today. We have been searching for ???Angel??? for two months now. What a great service! And a great big thanks to the person who thought to turn her in to Build-A-Bear Workshop. You now have a lifelong customer who will rave to everyone about Build-A-Bear Workshop."
--Kim G.

"We just received a very precious package yesterday. Thanks to some very nice people, my 5 year old daughter got back two very important friends. We would like to thank Dr. Robin for locating us and returning the bears to their loved ones. We would also like to thank all the people in Build-A-Bear who helped in the process. As a side note, the timing was unbelievable. Our family dog had gotten away earlier in the day. It was a freezing rain day and after driving around looking for her, we came to our house saw the package on the front porch and our dog looking for us so that she could come in out of the cold. So what started out as a very sad day turned into a very happy one."
--Bob, Jeanne and Eryn E.
