You Think You Know Build-A-Bear Workshop (@buildabear), Think Again

I have known about Build-A-Bear Workshop for some time, my knowledge is always been limited to the stores that you see at the malls where you can build a stuffed animal adorned in clothing and other apparel, adopt it and take it home. My girls have done this a few times and simply adore the opportunity. In fact every time we go to the mall and we see a Build-A-Bear Workshop you can guess where they want to go.

Shopping Fur Fashions
·        Girls will be on a shopping frenzy with the new Shopping Fur Fashion friends!

·        Each bear is also adorned with removable shoes and earrings.
·        Four different assortments include Flutter Fancy, Dancing Fancy, Flower Fancy, and Pretty Fancy.
·        The fashions are fitted for all figures, inspiring girls to get creative and mix and match fashions as they collect them all.

My Take on the Products
Seeing that my kids love Build-A-Bear Workshop stuffed animals and was intrigued to find out how they would react to this new toy line that they have unveiled. It did not surprise me to find that they loved them. I think the addition of this into the line of toys that Build-A-Bear Workshop provides was a great idea, especially with toys in the market that are popular such as Polly Pocket or other such toys. The toys were well-made and the kids loved how colorful everything was. The only thing my daughter asked was whether or not they would have close that they could place on the Bears in the future. I did not know the answer to this but told her that this was a great idea. Overall I was impressed with the toys in the fun interactive play that they promote and I think you will be too.
