Josie's first visit to Build-A-Bear Workshop!
This was Elliana's first time going to Build-A-Bear Workshop & she loved it! We bought her two bears.
My wife and I went to the Build-A-Bear at FAO Schwarz in New York City, and the experience was amazing. While there, we saw the exclusive FAO Schwarz bear, and my wife mentioned how her mother had always wanted to go to that store, but never had the chance to. So we got the exclusive bear just for her -- we wanted to bring the store she dreamed of going to, home to her. She loves the bear! Thank you to the staff for making the experience wonderful.

Hazel's birthday is Christmas Day, so we had an early Build-A-Bear birthday party for her – she had a blast! Staff was awesome, thank you! 🥰 #celeBEARate
Our daughter got her bear for her first birthday. At 13 months old, she was diagnosed with a very rare cancer. Her bear was everything to her; he went to every appointment, every treatment, every time she went for an MRI. She's now 5 years old, and he still goes everywhere! He's been washed and restuffed many times now, and even went on her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney with her. She loves bear so much, she went as bear for Halloween! There's nothing in her life that her bear is not part of -- thank you Build-A-Bear for being such a big part of our life.
There was an event at a nearby Build-A-Bear location, and when my son saw Bearemy he ran straight to him and hugged him for 20 minutes straight! He didn't want to let go of him, his day was made! Everyone was so sweet and we will definitely keep shopping at Build-A-Bear for every event we have!
Macauley had the best experience building his bear for his 1st birthday! He adores him.
My Grandchildren love their bears as much as their Mom did!
One of the best parts of my heart, my grandmother, passed away May 6th after a short battle with cancer. This bear has brought me so much comfort; I catch myself daily wishing that my Queen was still here. The joy of hearing her voice, telling me she loves me – I can't explain that feeling.
Peyton's 2nd birthday celebration!
Andi and Amara's first visit for their birthday, with their uncle and aunt!
This is my son Harley enjoying making his birthday bear! He really enjoyed making the bear, then he blow dried him then put the bears army uniform on. He already had a name ready when he picked the clothes for bear, so he called him Sergeant Major. My son enjoys visiting the Build-A-Bear Workshop and no doubt we will be back to add to his collection!
Even though I have anxiety, I do not qualify for a real service dog, and I already have one real dog to care for. So, I got a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal instead! I am very happy with him, and I'll love my therapy dog forever!
I got my golden retriever, Murphy, because I loved my friend's golden named Murphy so much! Unfortunately the real Murphy passed away a year later, but now I have this cute little puppy to remember him, as well as to snuggle!
Nova taking her Birthday Bear, Hershey, for a trolley ride on her second birthday!
I took my 3 year old little boy tonight and let him "BUILD" his very first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal!!! One of the most beautiful and amazing experiences we've shared so far! Watching the pure joy and awe all over his face during the process was truly a memory I'll forever cherish. He's currently sleeping with his "baby" and he's most definitely been the most protective "father" I've seen from a child his age! This opportunity and experience means more than I can put into words! Thank you all!!
Bethany and her favourite bear, she cuddles her every night in bed ❤️
This was our first visit to Build-A-Bear Workshop! My two sons chose your black cat stuffed animal, because this past August we lost or beloved black cat Yoyo. This gave my boys closure.
We love going to Build-A-Bear and making some new cuddly friends for my little guy!
My little Aurora, with her werewolf Socorro 🖤 🧡
His first time at Build-A-Bear, getting his Happy Birthday Bear!
My daughter wanted to get my mum something special for Christmas. My younger brother passed away 2 years ago, and my daughter made a bear with a chorus of his favourite song. The 2 girls that helped us were fantastic; they went above and beyond....it was perfect, and I only cried a little. I know my mum is going to love it, and I love my daughter for having such a thoughtful heart. Thank you Build-A-Bear for making our dream come true. Many thanks, I hope you know how happy you made us. Xx
I love Build-A-Bear so much, I get a stuffed animal anytime I can. We saw these at Walmart -- it made me very excited, and now my best friend and I have matching bears!
I love Build-A-Bear! I am a lifelong bear and plush animal collector, and I got this turkey just a few weeks ago because my birthday is at the end of November, and sometimes it falls on Thanksgiving, as it did last year. So I associate turkeys with my birthday!
We brought Dylan to Build-A-Bear for his 1st birthday stuffed animal -- he absolutely loves it and won't put it down!

Annabelle got her very 1st Build-A-Bear stuffed animal on her 4th birthday this year... I think we may have started a new tradition!
I'm 16 years old and have fallen in love with Build-A-Bear! Anytime I'm stressed, it's nice to be surrounded by cuddly faces. I love Build-A-Bear so much and actually plan to work there when I'm able. In a world full of chaos and depressing sights, it's so nice to be able to just get a hug from my Build-A-Bear stuffed animals.
Blake is 4 years old and was so excited to pick out his very own Build-A-Bear stuffed animal online! When Paw arrived, he was SO happy and they've been best friends ever since! ❤️ 🐾
My grandpa is nearly 100% blind, so when he ended up in the hospital with an infection, I knew something "visual" like a Get Well card or balloon would not cheer him as much. I got him something that he could cuddle, smell a sweet pumpkin spice scent, and squeeze the paw to hear his great-grandson's voice recording and mine saying, "Hi Grandpa Clark, we love you!" Every time I would squeeze the puppy's paw, he would laugh and say, "I love you, too, Andrew."
Valentin's 1st birthday bear ❤️
Love our furry friends! Can't wait to bring our 3rd one home next week. They help Daisy with separation anxiety. We have had Snuggles the longest. She is a very special rabbit for a most exquisite girl!

Sometimes it's hard to put into words the extent of your love to people, and Build-A-Bear Workshop helps me express how I feel about these two kids! My Build-A-Bear dates with Lex and Jace are so special!
My kids have been wanting a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal for a while. Maddy got "Rosey" and Ryan got "Barry" -- they love their soft feel, Mama and Dada's recorded words, great smell, and cute interchangeable outfits! Definitely a must have for every child!
Where ever we go, Catlyn (the meow-meow) goes with us!

At Build-A-Bear Workshop for my 2nd birthday!
Justine had a "beary" wonderful time attending the Bear Builder University workshop! She learned how these special friends come to be, from stuffing bears, making wishes, to even using the cash register! She was involved creating her new friend from start to finish in the Build-A-Bear Workshop. Her experience was one that will surely remain in her mind and heart, as well as in the heart of her new furry friend "Rachel".
This was the only bear she wanted for her birthday, and her aunt got it for her! She sleeps with it every night.
My very first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal!
First time at Build-A-Bear for my little Miss Savannah Belle's 6th birthday. She had such a wonderful time!! BEARY special memories!
Rhian is 9 and suffers from anxiety. To help her in school they let her take a teddy. When she saw Build-A-Bear offered a teddy in a school uniform, she wanted one so that her teddy would fit in with the rest of her class!
I took my daughter all the way from Seattle to St. Louis to meet her brother and sister for the first time. We met them at the St. Louis Zoo, and they all three fell in love instantly! When we saw the Build-A-Bear Workshop there we decided to go. This was the best decision I made! Her brother and sister recording a message in her bear, and now she has this special memory of meeting her brother and sister! because of Build-A-Bear, she brought a piece of them back to Seattle with her! THANKS BUILD-A-BEAR!

This Build-A-Bear stuffed animal that my boys are holding together means a lot to my whole family. We lost our dog last yr on 10-19-18, and this bull is named after him. We love shopping at this store -- we probably have over 25 bears from there!

We recently visited Build-A-Bear Workshop, and my son was super excited to find the bear he wanted, who he named George. Was lovely to stuff him with fluff, put a beating heart inside, with a lovely strawberry scent. A lovely touch to print out a birth certificate. Good reward scheme too. We will visit again!
Got my son his 4th Build-A-Bear stuffed animal, and my daughter finally got a bear for her birthday. Great day!

My first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal!
Aerik has been battling Epilepsy since a few days before turning 3. For his 6th birthday, he wanted a birthday bear for his birthday. We never could have predicted the relationship he would form with a "stuffed animal". His classroom has a strict "no toy rule", but his amazing teacher asked his nurse and principal to add Mr. Bear to his IEP so he could continue to attend class with him. He is excited to go pick up a new friend for Mr. Bear tomorrow and stuff it with lots of love for #NationalTeddyBearDay!
I found my bear in Walmart!
I've loved Build-A-Bear Workshop since I was young. I work for Walmart and when I saw the display I couldn't resist! His name is Marshmallow! I'm obsessed with teddy bears and Build-A-Bear is my favorite store in the mall to go to. I want others to experience the joy I get when I adopt a new member into my family.
I got a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal! I love all the accessories to chose from.
My son really likes bears because he likes to say say "Roar!"
Mommy has loved Build-A-Bear since she was a little girl, and she shares that love with me! We love coming in together and making bears to share that love with.
I am very appreciative and grateful to you for having #NationalTeddyBearDay! Thanks to this day, I was able to afford 4 bears to donate to charities so 4 children can have a bear friend to love. Thank you!
We took the girls to Build-A-Bear to get their birthday bears!

Woke the kids up at 2AM to head cross-country to Disney World. They didn't care where we went, as long as her Rabbi (received at 1 year old) and his Newbie (received at 1 day old) went along! Five years after this trip, the kids are 10 and 12, and they still love these two animals more than any of their other Build-A-Bear stuffed animals! They still go on trips with us, and they even have their own photo album. Happy #NationalTeddyBearDay!!! #celeBEARate

Sebastian had just turn two and we knew he wanted a new bear. He already has a few, but when they told us about the Pay Your Age promotion, we didn't hesitate to get him a new Build-A-Bear stuffed animal! He was so excited and ready to fill his new buddy up. He followed all the instructions, and immediately started hugging his new bear when he was done. He now sleeps with him and all his bears! 🥰
My daughter was so made up to get this for her birthday. She loves it sleeps with it -- thanks!
I love Build-A-Bear! ❤️
I brought my son to Build-A-Bear Workshop for his 1st birthday -- he had more fun taking things off the shelves and being a turkey than he did with making a bear! The girls who work there sang to him, and were very patient with him.
For International Hug Day 2019, my daughter chose a bear and decided to get her unborn baby sister a matching one. Thea was just 3 days old when Sophie gave her her very first teddy bear. It's pure luck that I managed to catch this beautiful windy smile on camera as Sophie gave the bear to Thea. Thea is now 9 weeks old and she utterly adores her bear. When she's overtired and crying, having her bear against her cheek helps her settle and when she's awake and happy, it's obvious that she loves it. She gets really excited, tries to reach for it, buries her face in its fur, grabs at it, smiles at it and makes little noises like she's trying to talk to it.
My daughter had a filling filled, and had to have her teddy bear with her!
Shopping with cousins
My granddaughter's 3rd birthday present from Build-A-Bear!

This is Oliver celebrating his first birthday with his birthday bear! 🎉
Mackenzie was excited to build her cat!
Our son has epilepsy, autism, and is vision impaired. He has been begging us for a dog that can help him (we are raising funds for a service dog). He fell in love with the labradoodle at Build-A-Bear yesterday, then we found the service dog vest. This is his "in-service dog" which has quickly become more like an emotional support "dog" for him. He walks it on a leash all over the house, brushes it, feeds it and plays fetch with it! This is the BEST training for when he finally receives his real service dog! Thank you Build-A-Bear for supporting the special needs community and Canine Companions! ❤️
We had a Make-A-Wish celebration for Arianna, and your staff was wonderful -- omg she had a ball! Thanks to all the great people at Build-A-Bear!

Rocky is his name, and Kaelani loves him so much! She takes him with her everywhere she goes.
I brought my 6 year old daughter into Build-A-Bear and she absolutely loved it! She named her bear "Jessie" after her best friend. Your staff were wonderful and even brought a tear to my eye with how well they treated her -- just watching my daughter make the bear, and the process involved, was simply magical; she hasn't stopped talking about it! Thank you so much Build-A-Bear!
We recently went to Build-A-Bear Workshop -- it was our first time and our kids loved it! The staff was friendly and so helpful...they really made it an unforgettable experience for our kiddos! We are hooked!
Best friends 4ever!!
Millie's first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal! 💕
My boyfriend and I bought Pan (our rabbit) on our second date, after having met at summer camp. We are now long distance (I live in London, he's in NY) but whenever we meet up we swap who has Pan, until the next time we see each other. I have just sent him another bear for our two month anniversary so we can swap out, but Build-A-Bear has enabled us to strengthen our relationship!
We visited Build-A-Bear with our daughter Sienna. We just married in Italy and she was our beautiful little flower girl, so -- as her present -- we decided to get her a lovely teddy, dressed in a flower girl dress, just like she had on the day! She had an absolutely amazing time at the store. As you can see by her face, Sienna loved the whole experience and the staff were great, showing her what was happening every step of the way. She hasn't put the bear down since!
My first time in New York, I went with my mom to the Build-A-Bear Workshop. We are from Chile, in South America, so we don't have this shop at home. It was a dream come true! I got my bear that I named "Tommy"!

Birthday Bear is her favorite! She loves it so much, she's worn a bald spot on the first one's bottom, so we had to make a new one. I think she loves it just as much!
My daughter went in to celebrate her 3rd birthday with the help of the staff at Build-a-Bear Workshop. Everyone went out of their way to make her new "fur-maid" and feel loved on her special day. Great beginning to a new school year as well. Thank you!
Tyla and Daddy made Ella with love the night before he deployed. Ella was filled with Daddy's voice, giving Tyla encouraging words and I love you's to hold onto until he returned. Tyla did not sleep one night without Ella, even after Daddy safely returned home. Ella has become an irreplaceable member of our Army family, and we love love love her!!!
We visited your Kings Island Build-A-Bear Workshop store for the first time during a Pay Your Age promotion, and my daughter couldn't have been more pleased with her new rainbow bear! The staff was really engaging and friendly, too. It was a great way to start off our visit to the park!
Entered the store with curiosity, left with a smile!

We started the tradition of building a bear at Build-A-Bear Workshop every year for their birthdays, and they are obsessed! They bring them everywhere!
I brought Scarlett (12) along to Build-A-Bear Workshop yesterday to choose a new bear -- despite my worries about how busy it may have been, she coped amazingly well. Scarlett has autism and can find it difficult in busy and loud places. She was treated like a queen by all members of staff we encountered, and she loved the whole process. Build-A-Bear made this special girl smile so much, thank you!
At my brother Jonathan's graduation xx

We love our BAB! #celeBEARrate

Emileigh was granted a wish trip to see JoJo Siwa from “Do It For The Love” – as part of her wish, several events were planned to make it fun... and Build-A-Bear was the 1st stop! Emileigh named her bear “Wishes”, and they both attended the JoJo Siwa concert that night!

Harry picking up his 2nd Build-A-Bear Birthday Bear! ❤️
Our good friend was going through a really rough time, so 4 of us recorded messages on separate recorders, to let him know just how special he is. We had him build his Build-A-Bear stuffed animal, and placed one recorder in each of the hands and feet. Each placement has a special meaning to him. He said it has helped him cope with his issue. He is truly an amazing person.
Happy 1st Birthday Henry! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
It was love at first sight!!! 🥰 Our little Lucas turned 1 year old, and we took him to build his first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal – he was super excited!!!
This is my daughter, putting some love into her mer-bear!
This is my autistic daughter Lilly and her bear Lavender – we went into Build-A-Bear Workshop for a birthday bear, but they didn't have one 😔 Cue a meltdown, until the lovely staff sorted her out with Lavender. Phew, I can't thank the staff enough for being so understanding and helpful. I'll be back again soon for another Build-A-Bear birthday bear for my 3 year old, making their joint collection up to 6!
I brought my granddaughter to Build-A-Bear for her birthday. This was her first time – she was so excited! xoxo

My daughter has a new best friend! She loves her little bear friend -- she made a ballerina because she's starting ballet, so she and her bear have a lot in common! We love coming to Build-A-Bear!
Oliver is going to be having a baby brother very soon! Ever since he found out mummy was having a baby, he's been asking to build baby a bear for when he's born, because Oliver has lots and wants baby to have one too. So his nanny took him on a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop -- he's so happy with it, and can't wait for baby to come so he can give it to him!
My son (who is on the Autism spectrum) came to your store yesterday for the Count Your Candles promotion -- the lady pictured was amazing with him! She was really nice and friendly, took her time with him, didn't rush him, she asked questions and waited for Caleb to answer in his own time, she spoke softly to him and made his Build-A-Bear experience amazing -- thank you! 😊
My daughter is in love with her teddy bear and best friend, Thalia! We bought her a surprise teddy from there she loves it; the customer service is amazing, the staff is amazing, and kids love them. Thanks a lot Build-A-Bear!
Took my 1 year old son to get his birthday bear!

The Museum of Discovery and Science hosted the "Bear Hugs for Special Kids" event, with about 150 children with cancer and their families. In the morning, they enjoyed the IMAX documentary film "Great Bear Rainforest" along with popcorn and beverages. Afterwards, they enjoyed exploring the Museum, and we hope that everyone involved had a very special day!
My baby nephew had to have a major operation on his skull, so we got him doctor bear to help him recover in the hospital!

Was on vacation and another customer had a coupon where she could get 2 Build-A-Bear stuffed animals for the price of her age, so she let my daughter get one for her age! I thought that was really nice of them, because my daughter truly wanted one.
This is grandpas first visit to Build-A-Bear. This bear was made with love for our expected grandchild, who is due in September. He put his voice in the bear for the baby to keep close - what a sweet emotional day this was! Thank you

My son received his bunny from Build-A-Bear in March, when he attended a friends birthday party. He and his bunny have been inseparable ever since! We travel frequently and bunny always comes along.

My daughter's Girl Scout group helped younger girls build their Build-A-Bear stuffed animals, then they got to build their own!
We first went to Build-A-Bear when we were pregnant with our first born son, then on his first birthday, and now it has become a tradition! I don't know how much longer we will get the same joy of coming to Build-A-Bear, but we are cherishing the tradition. Even asking when he has a brother or sister if he could build them a bear of their own... we are so thankful for all the memories and friends build a bear has given us.
Riley is obsessed with rainbows and she found the perfect companion for life!!

The girls really enjoyed the Pay Your Age event this week!
This is Lorelei, who is 2. She was very excited to receive her monkey, who talks like a monkey when you squeeze his hand. She chose the pineapple scent, and because she calls pineapples 'fine-apples', her monkey's name is FINEAPPLE. ❤️ 😂 🐒
Thank you for making these girls happy today!!
Been going to Build-A-Bear for years now, and it's always been an amazing experience! This time we took little Jess to enjoy her first experience, and she had the BEST time!
Celebrating my granddaughter's birthday at Build-A-Bear Workshop!

We love Build-A-Bear! This was our first time taking our son, but I grew up having MANY birthdays here!
On the 4th of July in 2017, Meskhenet made her first Build-A-Bear stuffd animal and named her "Baby". Baby goes everywhere with her, but she didn't stop there -- in 2018 she made another Build-A-Bear stuffed animal and named her Dora! She loves them both and is waiting to build another
My little girl Ellie chose herself a bear for the 1st time with her friend Rowan! She chose her kittens heart and put it in after giving it a kiss. Now she will not go to bed without her Cookie
Rebekah went to get her first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal today. She just turned one on Saturday, and was a little under the weather, but she lit up when it was time to choose a song to add inside! She started to dance in my arms. Our llama Tina smells like lavender, and has helped her while she is suffering from a high fever! So excited for more trips.
Thanks for making my kids so happy!
Thank you Build-A-Bear for this opportunity to Pay Your Age! Katelyn and her cousin Kaydee love their kitty cats!!!

Thanks Build-A-Bear for this incredible event! Top Notch!!
Just a little girl and her new Kitty!
It's now a family tradition to get every child a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal before they are born. My son has now expanded on that, into a collection of 9 bears and hopefully more to come! He may be young, but he loves all of his beary friends!
My girls love their bears/llama and the special experience we will always have together!

Used his Pay Your Age to build a bear for his buddy!
My little man Landon LOVED getting his bunny for Easter. After being sick for a week, we thought nothing better to get him a new buddy to cuddle! He loves Floppy the rabbit.
Our youngest daughter has many medical conditions, and her doctors are in the same town as the closest Build-A-Bear location (about 2 hours from home). This year, we were fortunate to get a Pay Your Age certificate, and it happened that her cardiology visit was the same week as your event. She was feeling a bit overwhelmed, so it was nice to surprise her with a visit to Build-A-Bear! Thank you, Build-A-Bear, for always being a special place to stop for us during some of our worst days.
My daughters first time making a bear - she loved it! Even put the heart in herself. Her two older brothers love their puppies too!
My daughter Aubree loved picking out a bear, thanks to the Pay Your Age ticket that I won!
Rowan loves his new puppy!
My nephew is autistic and usually hates going shopping. I won 2 tickets to Pay Your Age, and took him and my son (11). My nephew had the best time! He even engaged in the making of his new bear! I've never seen him so excited. Thank you Build-A-Bear for the wonderful memories we both will cherish forever! My son had a great time, too! Looking forward to making many more memories at Build-A-Bear!
My two year old LOVES your store. I was so pleased to see how you managed Pay Your Age day this year - things went quickly and were very organized. We have our fingers crossed to win again next year 💖
My boys are over the moon with their new furry friends!
These sisters were so excited to find new friends to take home and have a special memory from vacation!
This was the first buddy we ever built, and two years later, she still remains the favorite.
We had a wonderful experience and our son LOVED IT. The staff were all so friendly and helpful! They were caring and kind, and talked to my son and were patient with him (even when he stepped on the pedals a million times). As you can see by the look on his face, he had a magical time and he absolutely loves his monkey, Marcel. Thank you for the experience!
This is her 3rd stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear. Every experience we have at Build-A-Bear is excellent, and she enjoys every time we go!
I took the twins separately to pick their own animal. I couldn't believe it, but -- in true twin fashion -- they both pointed at, leaned towards, and picked the same stuffed animal! They love their pups! 🐶 🐶
My kids were so happy. Thank you!
First time for these two babies they LOVED IT!!!!
We have so many Build-A-Bear memories! My daughter has a story about each of her bears; she has one from each of her birthdays, and she even has one with her old pacifiers stuffed inside! Here is a picture of Everly with her brother, and she is showing him how to wash his first ever Build-A-Bear!
Gracie and her Promise Pet, Jenny! ❤️

Our first time at Build-A-Bear and it was a great experience! The staff was very sweet while helping my son make his new friend. We bought him the bear to keep him company at night, while we transition him out of mommy's bed into his own big boy bed. He named his new bear Marshmallow!

It was my first time at Build-A-Bear Workshop with my two year old sister, and we had a blast! I loved being able to stuff my kitty and my sisters dinosaur. My favorite part was warming up my kitty's heart, rubbing it on my heart and giving it a big kiss. Thank you for making my first of many experiences so wonderful!
Had so much fun with the Pay Your Age promotion!
We waited for Pay Your Age, but TOTALLY worth the smiles! :)
My youngest was so happy to get his very own puppy dog!

My daughter Kylee had a completely magical experience building her first fur friend, CeCe. From start to finish, the store staff made sure it was magical. She even happily retold every second of the story at home to her dad and our dog (who just so happens to look a lot like CeCe). I am so grateful for her experience and the Pay Your Age promotion; we will certainly be back!
I have one very happy little 3 year old! Thanks Build-A-Bear!
I got to make my new furrever friend with the Pay Your Age sweepstakes! I love my llama and love that I got to pick it out myself. Thanks Build-A-Bear!!
I love to make my littlest one happy! 👩🏻 👧🏻
We were very excited when we received our Pay Your Age voucher! Celestina just turned two last week, and so it was a nice birthday present. We went to our Build-A-Bear this morning, and she ended up choosing her "kitty" and was very excited to stuff her. Her Daddy helped her with the stuffing pedal and I helped her pick out a heart. I think her favorite part was putting the heart in, because when we went to her grandparent's house later in the day she flipped her kitty over and pointed to the kitty's back and said heart (the spot where she put the heart in). I think she had an amazing time, and is excited to go back in the future! ❤️ 🐻
This was my 5 year old daughter's first experience with Build-A-Bear Workshop. She was so excited! She picked the unicorn & named her "Rainbow". She played with Rainbow all day today. ❤️ 🦄
Jayden got to build his first stuff animal friend today, thanks to the Pay Your Age event! Jayden and his new moose friend Maple are looking forward to enjoying their First Canada Day!

Today we got to attend the Pay Your Age event, my little one loves all the bears! It was so hard for her to decide on one, but she finally was able to choose the mer-bear. She loves her new friend, thank you Build-A-Bear for the wonderful experience!
My girls on Pay Your Age day! They were super excited, & we can't wait to come back and add to our collection!
Thank you so much for the passes to attend Pay Your Age! They were so excited to pick out a friend to take home -- we really appreciate it! Our experience went smooth and employees were great!

Chloe was very poorly on a day out, so her mummy and daddy treated her to a teddy to make her feel better! Her teddy is named Lady Lavender (she has a lavender scent inside her). Chloe did feel better after many cuddles from lady.
This is my son and his best friend "Camo". This was his first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal he got, during our first family vacation when he was 10 months old! I love capturing these everyday memories of him and Camo, and wanted everyone to be able to see a sneak peek of it too!

Count Your Candles -- Cherish loves her birthday bear!
My boyfriend from overseas came to my country to stay for a while! To celebrate, we went to Build-A-Bear and created a teddy bear that had the same outfit he often wears, and also gave the bear a guitar since he plays the guitar, put his voice inside of it, and made it smell like birthday cake since we made the bear on his birthday! This was a special time together as a couple, and I will forever cherish this bear.
The girls' first time at Build-A-Bear! They loved it! And can't wait to go back!
Madison turned 5!
Our son's first birthday! 😂
Thank you for my birthday bear. I'm 3 on Monday 17th June. I named him Boo! (All my bears are called Boo)
My son Axel had his first experience at Build-A-Bear for his birthday, and what an amazing time he had! They gave him the royal treatment with stickers, hat and bell! We have to drive over an hour to get to the store, so it was well worth the special trip! We usually drive to the area for specialist doctor appointments, but this time was different and so special -- his bear has gone to surgery with him, and he sleeps with him every night. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Birthday rock star bear!
My daughters first ever trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop, where she made her unicorn. It was so worth it just to see her light up during the experience!
At the beginning of the school year, I promised my sweet Carlie girl that she could have a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal once she graduated from Kindergarten. This is the day after her Kindergarten graduation. :)
When my granddaughter was building her bear, the attendant asked what she'd like to name her bear. When Jess hadn't answered, the attendant asked her if she was thinking, Jess replied, "ya, blinking!" And that is how Blinking got her name. Jess is now 11, and she still has her beloved Blinking!
Today was my daughter's 3rd birthday, so of course we bought her the birthday bear! She was topped off with a pink tutu and birthday shirt with pink shoes and roller skates. My baby was really happy with her bear whom she named Jessie. I really have to commend the ladies that worked with us today as we took our time to get our bear just right. They had a lot of patience and continued to have fun with my daughter. So I truly thank them!
We purchased our Build-A-Bear stuffed animal after my daughter turn 4 months old. The scent we picked out for her still smells so good! She is now 13 months old, and has been able to grow with it and create unforgettable memories that will last her a lifetime.
Celebrated my sons 2nd Birthday today at Build-A-Bear with a friend and her kids.

My granddaughters 3rd birthday bear!
So happy Build-A-Bear Workshop had pink glasses to match Miss Camryn's glasses!!
We started a tradition the year my daughter was born, which involves visiting Build-A-Bear Workshop at Halloween. My daughters first Halloween in 2017, we dressed her as a mummy and bought her the Mummy Halloween Bear. Last year she was a pumpkin, as we had previously seen the light-up pumpkin scarecrow... imagine our surprise when one of your staff members was also dressed as a pumpkin! My daughter was so excited, and your member of staff took time to play with Harlei and she asked for a picture. Service was amazing from her, and I was only too happy to take this picture... I wonder what this years halloween theme will be! #excited
This is our Jr lol. We were on our way to the beach that day. Yes he does go with us some places. Our friends love him. They always ask to babysit 🤷🏾♀️
From the first day we started talking, both Olympia and I said we loved Build-A-Bear, and soon made a plan for our first date to be at Build-A-Bear. This picture is from our first date. We were so happy to make this memory there, and we have gone back for many dates since.
As soon as my birthday girl saw this bear she fell in love!!!! Super excited to see my baby girl so happy at Build-A-Bear Workshop
We visited Build-A-Bear for my daughter Scarlett's 4th birthday. She said she had the most amazing time! Thank you guys

Happy Mother's Day!

This is my beautiful granddaughter Amelia on her 2nd birthday. Her 1st Build-A-Bear stuffed animal & she was so excited ❤️
We decided to do something different and chose Build-A-Bear as the place to celebrate our daughter Kai's 6th Birthday. She was so excited once she found out and had such an amazing time throughout the party. I couldn't be more pleased to see the kids giggling and having fun creating their bears and leaving with smiles on their faces. Thank you Build-A-Bear for making our first but not last experience so enjoyable & memorable!!
This is my precious grand baby with her new "Miss Kitty", on her very first Build-A-Bear adventure. She loved adding fluff to her stuffed friend, and then bringing her to life by kissing the heart and placing it inside. I wrote a song for her when she was born and was able to record a portion of it and add it to Miss Kitty's sweet little Paw. Now she can squeeze her and not only feel Miss Kitty's love, but hear just how much Mimi loves her too.

We celebrated the birthday of my daughter. She had an amazing time. The host made sure that the kids had a great time; he organized them, taught them, made jokes with them. That host went above his duties - we love Build-A-Bear Workshop! Thank you for all your hard work ❤️
For the past 18 years of my life, Build-a-Bear was one of the biggest influences in it! I constantly dressed up my bears and made them participate in fashion shows, and it helped me discover my true interests and what I wanted to do as an adult. I was able to express myself through dressing them up in the most fashionable outfits, and BABW helped me shape my colorful personality and who I am today. I will be happily entering the fashion field for my career. Daisy (Summer bear 2007) is one of my all time best friends, has stuck with me through everything for almost 12 years, and always will remain on my bedside, no matter how old I get. Build-A-Bear Workshop is such a huge part of my childhood and will always own a piece of my heart! :-)

#NationalUnicornDay 💕 🦄
My mother-in-law had been diagnosed with liver cancer and was given months to live. We chose to take her to Build-a-Bear to build each of her 5 adult children a bear, complete with a message from her in each. I think it made her passing a little easier on each of them, knowing any time they wanted to hear her voice all they have to do is squeeze a paw.
LilyAnna and Addylyn's Birthday!
This is Julia's first Build-a-Bear teddy that her big brother, Logan, made for her. Logan brought this bear to the hospital when he was meeting his little sister for the first time. Now Julia has a special gift from her big brother and we have something to help us see her growth. I know Logan cannot wait until Julia can build her first bear all on her own.

Build-A-Bear Workshop on the Carnival Pride!
When our first granddaughter was born 10 years ago, I ran off to Build-A-Bear, picked out what I wanted, had it filled, and took it to her. When our second son had his baby girl, he asked me to wait till she was old enough to go and select her own stuffed animal, which I did. I want to thank Build-A-Bear for providing the environment and resources to live these incredible moments with our children and grandchildren.
I'm going to be a big sister! My baby sister will be here soon! My mommy and daddy wanted me to have a snuggly friend while they are a little busy.

My sons 3rd birthday party. He loved it and so did everyone who attended!
When my son -- who was 11 at the time -- found out that I was having another baby, he insisted on making the baby a puppy. Elton made this experience amazing for us; instead of the whole ceremony being directed at the stuffie, it was that he will always be there for his sibling. It brought tears to my eyes.
We took our son Reece to Build-A-Bear for the first time, and we had such an amazing experience! He loved picking out 2 animals and being able to stuff them! We all loved it, from making a wish while holding the heart to picking out sounds, scents, clothing, creating a birth certificate and -- best of all -- taking our new friends home!
I just missed my kids soo much I had to make a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal!
Took my daughter to build her first bear for her 3rd birthday, and she had so much fun she fell asleep on the way back home with "Berry"!
My husband made this bear for our son before he deployed overseas with the Army. Hearing his voice and having a comfort item has meant so much to us, and we are very thankful for Build-A-Bear for having military outfits for our Daddy Bear!
Their first Build-A-Bear friend!
I'm Christina and I'm 19 years old with many chronic illnesses. Unlike most teenagers, when I go to the mall I'm not shopping for clothes -- most of the time you can find me at Build-A-Bear. I'm in the hospital quite often and my comfort always comes from a bear. Forever grateful for this store that never fails to make me smile and feel better 💙
This is their first experience at a Build-A-Bear store! Our twins turned 5 and we took them to choose their own personalized bear. They had a memorable experience that day; the staff were friendly and our twins felt special on their birthday!

They may let go of your hand, but they will always hold your heart!
This is my son and his very first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal!
My 11 month old was born 2 months before her uncle Eric passed away. Eric was stationed in Texas, and unfortunately he never got the chance to meet her in person. Fortunately, we were able to get her an "Uncle Eric" bear with an Army uniform. So grateful for Build-A-Bear.

My son was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot (congenital heart disease) at just 24 hours old. Before he was even born, his sister and I had already chosen him a Build-A-Bear. When we learned that he would need open heart surgery to repair his heart, I knew I wanted his bear to have the same scar as he does. I'm no seamstress, but I absolutely love how it turned out. My little warrior is almost 9 months old now and absolutely thriving.

Her first Build-A-Bear toy!
Her new Birthday Bear, keeping her company on our long flight overseas!
Ryder (the bear) has been a blessing to our little boy. Rhett has had vision problems since before one year of age. We got Ryder for Rhett when he was 10 months old. Rhett's brain, as we were told, cut off connection to his right eye, due to extreme loss of vision in that eye. Rhett's left eye was his "good" eye for the past couple of years... but now, he has no "good" eye. Ryder is Rhett's comfort. Rhett does not like darkness (when he can see the least), so Ryder is there, for–bath time, reading stories, potty time, you name it -- Ryder is there. Ryder goes to all doctors appointments, out to eat, church, just everywhere. Ryder is family and holds a very special place in our heart. When we (parents) can't calm and comfort Rhett, Ryder does. Thank you all for "creating" Ryder.
My daughter loves Build-A-Bear. Her first bear was made for her by her father before she was born. Now she goes 3-4 times a year to make me furry friends. This one was to celebrated National Hug Day!

I'm a single mom of six girls, so I search for deals that will allow my girls to enjoy amazing experiences. I am so thankful for the sale last January that allowed these sweet little ladies to spend some Christmas money on not only a new best friend, but accessories as well. They adore their new buddies and the whole experience was magical and memorable to all of them. Thank you for great quality products and an absolutely fun environment.
Had a great time at the Build-A-Bear Workshop, brining my daughters birthday bear to life!
Took my girls for National Hug Day and they had a great time!! Thank you for doing this amazing promotion, it was a great first time for my girls!
My daughter has Crouzon Syndrome and craniosynostosis. She had a major surgery at 9 months old on her skull and her eye brow bones! She's now doing amazing! We always wanted to take her to Build-A-Bear so we did for her 1st birthday! She loves her birthday bear! She always tries to take her headband bows off, so we got her bear one, hoping she would want to wear it -- well, she does a little better, but now takes her bears bow every time we put it on!!
Emily gives the best hugs to her Unicorn!! She carried her new unicorn all through the mall!

My son just turned 1 on December 1st, 2018. I wanted us to participate in the Pay-Your-Age for a bear for his birthday. $1 for a bear?! Count us in! When the BAB associate handed "Cupcake" to him, he gave it the sweetest hug. I'm so thankful that I captured that moment and get to share it with Build-A-Bear. Thank you!
She got a gift card for Christmas and finally got to build her Kitty, Luna!

For my son's second birthday, we got him a Build-A-Bear Birthday Bear. Matt loves it! He will cuddle with it and give it lots of kisses. I love how the staff made it an unforgettable experience for all of my kids not just the birthday boy. Matt has Down Syndrome and the person helping us had my other three kids add a heart to the inside of the bear, to symbolize the extra love that Matt has. 💕 💕

I've been going to Build-A-Bear since I was a little girl and now I get to share my experiences with my son! I love that I get to track how many months he is with this shirt, and I made his very first Build-A-Bear before he was born and it even has his name on it. I can't wait to take him when he's older so he can pick out his own Build-A-Bear!

His dad and officer is away at the moment working. He made this bear rabbit to remind him of his dad while he is away.
His first visit to Build-A-Bear to celebrate his 4th birthday. He attempted to pick out every single bear in the store. He had a hard time getting the concept of just pick 1. He eventually got the hang of it after a while. He finally chose a reindeer and gingerbread house/stable for his reaindeer to live. Her name is sugar plum!
