Sensory-Friendly Sundays at Build-A-Bear Workshop


Next Event: Sunday, September 29, 2019.

Build-A-Bear Workshop means fun for everyone! We’re proud to support children with autism and other special needs by providing sensory-friendly events at participating Workshop locations. Sensory-Friendly Sundays are designed to provide a less-stimulating Workshop experience that’s still fun-filled and unforgettable. Our Bear Builders are committed to making sure every Guest goes through the Build-A-Bear experience in a way that’s comfortable for them.

Sensory-Friendly Event Details:

  • Dimmer lighting
  • Little to no music playing in the store
  • Accommodations available throughout the experience
  • A step-by-step informational guide that allows parents/guardians to plan their Workshop experience in advance (click here to download)
  • All ages and siblings welcome

Sensory-Friendly Sundays occur in select Build-A-Bear Workshop locations once a month for the first hour of the day.
To ensure the BEARY best experience, please talk to an associate to plan your visit.
